The Manage Dependencies page enables you to create a parent-child dependency between any two Orion objects, including Player locations, transactions, and transaction steps.

To create a dependency:

  1. Click Settings in the top right of the Orion Web Console.
  2. Click Manage Dependencies in the Node & Group Management grouping.
  3. Click Add new dependency.
  4. On the Select Parent page, complete the following steps:
    1. Use the Show only: and Group by: selection fields to customize the list of displayed objects and groups.

      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.

  5. On the Choose Child page:
    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.

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

  6. On the Review Dependency page, 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.
    • If a parent object is down, alerts configured on any child object in a dependency will not trigger because the child object status is Unreachable.
  7. Click Submit to accept the dependency definition.
