I could find any document describes that parameter.
Could you please let me know the meaning?
For the Object Name - ContainmentEventTrigger the description given is as follows:
Used to specify trigger condition for a containment notification event. Containment can be for an in zone event or an out of zone event. The zone is defined as a hierarchy of type “Campus Name > Building Name > Floor Name > Zone Name” string. The notification type for this trigger is EVENT_DRIVEN.
The attribute zoneTimeout controls the number of containment events. If a device continues to be in a zone, then there will not be repeating notifications sent out until "zoneTimeout" in minutes passes. If this is not set, notifications will be sent out multiple times even though the device is in the zone.

Thanks and Regards,
Got it. Thanks Geevarghese.
But I dont' understand why Cisco design event notification like that. I thought Containment event was a kind of transition triggerred events means only when a device is moving from IN to OUT or OUT to IN, it notifies the event.
So if I set that parameter to big enough value say 9999 (mins), it will become transition triggered event, right ?
By the way, it seems to be that the Presence Event goes with Containment GO IN event, Every time an IN event occurs, I see a Presence event goes together.
I thought the Presence Event only occurred when people turned on WIFI on their device and it was not repeatedly notified
The Notification Event APIs allows an application to register for Push Notifications from the MSE. You can configure notifications for a specific MAC address or a list of MAC addresses with a wildcard for a specific device type.
Containment Event—Triggers a notification if a device is inside or outside of a configured zone.
The "In/Out (Containment) Condition" is the XML format of notification messages.
Presence Parameters: Enables you to enable location presence on a mobility services engine to provide expanded Civic (city, state, postal code, country) and GEO (longitude, latitude) location information beyond the Cisco default setting (campus, building, floor, and X, Y coordinates). This information can then be requested by clients on a demand basis for use by location-based services and applications.
If you choose In/Out from the Condition Type drop-down list, choose Inside of or Outside of, then click Select Area. Entry and exit of assets from the selected area is then monitored. In the Select dialog box, choose the area to monitor, then click Select. The area to monitor can be an entire campus, building within a campus, a floor in a building, or a coverage area (you can define a coverage area using the map editor). For example, to monitor part of a floor in a building, choose a campus from the Campus drop-down list, choose a building from the Building drop-down list, and choose the area to monitor from the Floor Area drop-down list.
