VPN IPsec Tunnel Status Changed, only want alerts for tunnel Down, not Up

I'm configuring alerts and right now all I want is an alert if the IPsec VPN tunnel goes down. I currently have the 'IPsec Tunnel Status Changed' (ID 427) setting turned on, as described here: https://community.sonicwall.com/technology-and-support/discussion/416/site-to-site-tunnel-status-alert-in-logs and it is indeed working; however it is sending an alert anytime it goes up as well. I only need the alert for if it goes down.

    There aren't individual event IDs for up/down, only a single event ID for state transition, so you cannot do this from the Sonicwall. You would have to parse the events with whatever you're receiving them with.

    You can configuring an alert when the Interface goes down.
