Environment:
Spectrum 10.2.x
Spectrum 10.3.x
Resolution:
To resolve this issue, please open the the .alarmc file for this Notifier Application and change:

USE_NEW_INTERFACE=false

to

USE_NEW_INTERFACE=true

Then save the file and restart AlarmNotifier to resolve the issue.

Even if this parameter is not being used, it will still need to set to "true" as it is used for processing the information from Alarm Notifier.
