The DI needs to map to a measurement that PME can resolve.

The easiest (recommended) way is to name the register (using the MDI) to one of the standard names.  In this case I would suggest you choose one of these: 'Digital Input 1', 'Digital Input 2', ..., 'Digital Input 8'
The DI will then show up under 'Generic I/O' in Alarm Configuration as 'Input Status 01' ... 'Input Status 08'

If you cannot rename your DI status register, then you'll need to add a custom measurement.  This can be done with the Logical Device Type Editor accessed from Management Console:
Create a new Logical Device Type - call it something like 'Alarm Inputs'
go to Measurement tab - click 'New'

Descriptive Name: the name of the register you added in the MDI - needs to be an exact replica - same case and same spaces
Engineering Name: (same as Descriptive Name)
Units: (leave blank)
Quantity: 'unknown'
Hit 'OK'
You can add as many custom measurements as you need and you don't even need to save the Logical Device Type that you created - although you might want to so that you have a convenient place to find them in the future.  You do not have to map a Logical Device to this new type - the custom measurements will flow through the system the next time the measurement list cache is refreshed (give it 15 mins or so)
Your new custom measurement will show up under 'Custom' in Alarm Configuration
