Changing Alarm Assignment Scope

By default, alarms aimed to monitor client backup infrastructures are assigned to all locations. If you do not want to check alarm conditions for a specific location, you can exclude this location from the alarm assignment scope. As a result, the alarm will never be triggered for the excluded location, even if the alarm conditions are met.
