Creating dependencies on the Manage Dependencies page

Table of contents
No headers

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:

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.

  1. Click Settings in the top right of the 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.
  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.
    • In the event that a parent object is down, alerts configured on any child objects in a dependency will not trigger because the child object status is Unreachable.
  7. Click Submit to accept the dependency definition.

These dependencies can then be managed or edited in the same way as other dependencies as described in Managing Dependencies in the NPM Administrator Guide.
