Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] (EMERGENCY-32) Make eventCode mandatory

    [ https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/EMERGENCY-32?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=50943#comment-50943 ] 

Norm Paulsen commented on EMERGENCY-32:

The Canadian Profile also made event code mandatory. But I believe the request for a mandatory event code stems from the recipient side wanting to be able to filter the alerts based on something event related. With recipients used to seeing "Tornado" (a reference to an event) within the alert named "Tornado Warning"; and historically with SAME and EAS both calling "Tornado Warning" an event instead of an alert, its not surprising to me that a request for manadatory eventCode has come about.

I feel <eventCode> as optional and also being a multiple is ok. I feel <alertCode> should exist and be defined the same. For CAP to define a managed list of codes is not its place. The communities that use CAP should define them. So for IPAWS, they should be the ones to define the <eventCode> and/or <alertCode> sets (with input from the coimmunity).

Also, these are <valueName><value> multipart elements. The <valueName > part should identify the code set one is using in their CAP (and it should be IPAWS that outreaches the code set if they are the ones to make <eventCode> manadatory).Then NWS, or other issuing agency that is part of that community, just maps to it and refers clients to IPAWS for details. That is how we have set it up in the Canadian Profile.
