When acknowledging alarms, only those alarms for which the logged on user has privileges will be acknowledged. 

The AlarmAck Cicode function requires the currently logged on user to have privilege levels on the selected alarm. If you attempt to run the AlarmAck command under a particular logged on user, then only the alarms for which that user has privileges will be acknowledged. This is by design in all CitectSCADA versions. The Online Help will be updated with this note in a future release.

In CitectSCADA v5.50r0, a new CITECT.INI parameter has been added to determine the privilege level a user requires to acknowledge alarms, which can be found in the CSV_Include CITECT.INI Parameters section of the Online Help:

AckAlarms=1 ! Default Value: 1, Allowable Values: 0 - 8
