Associate a new alarm with an Existing alarm

I have an AO/Lua Script that is triggered by "Inactive Robot" alarms from the HUB.  I have Inactive Robot alarms from the Hub set to Major, but if the Robot is inactive AND unpingable, I create a new Critical level alarm that states the Ping Faliure / Robot is inanactive.  Originally I wanted to create a Preprocessing rule to run my Lua script, but it does not allow passing the hostname from the event.  Now that I'm creating a new alarm based on the Inactive Robot alarm, I'd like to have it clear when the Inactive Robot clears.  I've created the new alarm passing the supp_key value from the parent alarm.  The child alarm did not clear when the parent alarm cleared.  Is there a way to do this?
