Grouping row in the alert list to support summarising custom view columns

 Currently in latest AIOPs 4.5 version , we can added mapping for new custom field/s  ( SiteId in our case  ) in Netcool connector and  and can add same in AIOPs alert view
 but like Resource , EntityTYpe , Sender column values for parent alert where We can see count of unique values ( summarizing ) of  same column for all child events,
We can't see it for new column ( SiteId in our case ) .  Based on dicussion with AIOPs DEV we understand 'auto generation and display of unique count value based on values of  corresponding fields in child alerts  is only  supported for fixed set of fields of AIOPs alert and NOT for custom fields .

This missing functionality is much needed for our operators to get a quick understanding like How many sites ( not only resources ) are impacted due a outage for which the parent synthetic row created in AIOPs alert viewer.
