Ingesting alarm state data

Alarm state properties expect alarm state as a serialized JSON string. To ingest alarm state to an external alarm in Amazon IoT SiteWise, you ingest this serialized string as a timestamped string value. The following example demonstrates a state data value for an active alarm.


To identify an alarm state property, you can specify one of the following:

  • The assetId and propertyId of the alarm property that you're sending data to.

  • The propertyAlias, which is a data stream alias (for example, /company/windfarm/3/turbine/7/temperature/high). To use this option, you must first set your alarm property's alias. To learn how to set property aliases for alarm state properties, see Mapping external alarm state streams.

The following example BatchPutAssetPropertyValue API payload demonstrates how to format the state of an external alarm. This external alarm reports when a wind turbine's rotations per minute (RPM) reading is too high.

Example BatchPutAssetPropertyValue payload for alarm state data
{ "entries": [ { "entryId": "unique entry ID", "propertyAlias": "/company/windfarm/3/turbine/7/temperature/high", "propertyValues": [ { "value": { "stringValue": "{\"stateName\":\"Active\"}" }, "timestamp": { "timeInSeconds": 1607550262 } } ] } ] }
