  3. Click Add new dependency.
  4. On the Select Parent page, complete the following steps:

      The properties listed in the Group by selection field are dynamic.

    2. Select the parent object or group in the main pane, and then click Next.

      If you want to define a dependency so that the reported states of child objects are dependent on the status of multiple parent objects, create a group including all parent objects, and then select it on this view. For more information, see Create groups

    1. Edit the Dependency name, as appropriate.
    2. Use the Show only: and Group by: selection fields to customize the list of displayed objects and groups.

      Properties listed in the Group by: selection field are dynamically dependent on the selection in the Show only: field.

    3. Select the child object or group in the main pane, and then click Next.

  6. On the Review Dependency view, review the current settings for the configured dependency.

    • If any advanced alerts are configured on parent or child objects, they will be listed on this view. Click + to expand alert details.
    • In the event that a parent object is down, all alerts configured on any child objects in a dependency on the down parent object are automatically suppressed.
