    Guys, we know many things are possible to make it via generic events and HTTP requests, but it's painful to configure when there are hundreds of events and rules on the list..... Especially when the list management is still not optimized which is described here: https://support.networkoptix.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360036084374-Add-rule-names-numbers-and-filter-them-by-name-number

    So for large systems I'd rather use genuine solution from Nx.

    So once again, please allow us assign many actions to one event.

    Currently we need to create so many almost identical rules! When we have 100 cameras and 4 actions to the same event, we need to setup 400 rules! Its easy to see what will happen when the system is larger like 500 cameras.

    I don't see it in 4.0 release. Is it possible to get it in 4.1 release ?

    Frederik,

    While it's more challenging to do multiple actions...

    We effeminately plan 1 and 2 for next release. 

    1) Filter seach on top should also be able to search in the names given to each rule of cause.

    2) Copy/duplicate should be an option when you right click an existing rule :)

    I dont know if this is what you need but i use it and its very handy.

    You can send a generic event on an event and let make those generic events do different actions on the server.
    This way you, when you want to change the event for all those actions you will only have to change the event sending this generic event.

    That is a nice trick. But my challenge now is that I get so many event rules set up that it almost impossible to navigate.
    So If I was able to have one rule to triggermultiple events I would be able to drastically reduce the number of rules and have better control.
