Issue/Introduction

Introduction: 

You use Security Action/Message Tables (SAMTs) to specify how CA TPX will respond to return codes and messages from your security system. A SAMT consists of entries for return codes and messages. For each entry there is a corresponding action for the software to take or a reference to a message for the software to display, or both.

When the software receives a return code or message from the security system, it will check for an entry in the SAMT for that return code or message. If an entry exists, it will take the corresponding action, depending on what you have specified.

Depending on your security system, the software can receive return codes, message IDs, or both from the security system.
