B2Bi server down should indicate node ID

When ICC sees that a node went down in B2Bi, it only shows the server name/alias and not the node that went down

What is your industry? Other
How will this idea be used?

When monitoring a B2Bi cluster, if a node goes down the alert can only indicat the B2Bi is down but not which node in the cluster - This information should be available at the time B2Bi went down

    Is there something else that must be done to enable the CGIS013I message ID's?

    I changed the rule to use the CGIS013I message ID and the alerts never happened when the node went down.

    You are correct that when a server down event, CCTR034E, is generated it will only have the server name/alias

    However, when ICC detects that a B2Bi server’s node is down, it emits a CGIS013I event which does include the name of the node that is down

    CGIS013I GIS Node status is down. Node: {0}
