Agent Status (Online to Offline) Event generation and other Health Conditions can be configured for one or more agents in the Console by using the Agent Health Timeout settings dialog. 

1. The details on how to configure these settings to generate Agent "Communications" Management events is available in the SCSP Administration Guide under Chapter 3 Managing Assets – Viewing and configuring agent and group properties - Configuring agent health timeout settings. The subtopic "To configure agent health timeout settings for an agent" provides the necessary steps for configuring this on one or more agents.

Alternatively you can add the Event Field Operation Equals AGENT HEALTH CHANGE
