Often times systems use the tag name "description" as part of the alarm payload. However, description is a reserved word, and its use or access is limited by the system.

Here are a few examples of how not to use tag name "description":

  1. Use the tag as a primary or secondary property

  2. Use the tag to create custom tags

  3. Use the tag as part of the maintenance plan BPQL

  4. Use the tag as part of a correlation pattern

We recommend users to create an additional tag (i.e. "short_description") that contains the value of description for use in the BigPanda system.
