Alarms created by REST are not suppressed during maintenance

Issue:
When creating alarms via webservices_rest the alarms are assigned to the device specified in the alarm details as expected, however if the device is in maintenance mode the alarm will not be suppressed.
Environment:
UIM 8.51
webservices_rest 8.51
Cause:
When an alarm is submitted via webservices_rest it will have the dev_id of the server where webservices_rest is running, instead of the dev_id of the actual alarmed device.

Because the maintenance is correlated by dev_id the alarms will not be suppressed.
Resolution:
This is currently a limitation of webservices_rest in UIM 8.51.
