The Status tab provides an overview of all of the systems in your Gateway while also enabling you to drill down into specific systems and get an in-depth view of what is currently happening. For complete information, see Ignition Gateway Status.
The Config tab provides access to configuration options for Gateway settings. This is where most of the settings that affect the whole Gateway are set up. Note that some settings such as database connections are not available for Edge. For complete information, see Ignition Gateway Config.
Edge Gateway Settings
There is an additional set of Gateway Settings for Edge that are not available in regular Ignition. These settings enable you to modify the names of the Edge project, Edge Tag provider, and Edge historian. You can also set the visualization method (Vision or Perspective) here if you are using the Edge Panel plugin.
The name of the Edge project. Default is "Edge." Only one project can exist in an Edge Gateway. You can change the name of this project with this setting.
|Tag Provider Name|
The name of the Edge Tag provider. Only one provider can exist in an Edge Gateway.
As of 8.1.11, this property has been removed. The name of the loaded tag provider can be changed on the realtime tag provider page: Config section of gateway > Tags > Realtime.
Represents the tag provider that is currently loaded on the Edge Gateway. Normally, only a single tag provider can be created on an Edge Gateway, but if the gateway was recently switched from Standard Edition to Edge, then there could be additional tag providers within the gateway's internal database. This setting allows you to select which of those tag providers to use.
|Tag Editing Permissions|

|Tag Reading Permissions|

If enabled, writes to any tag within this tag provider will be rejected, regardless of the target tag's permissions. Disabled by default.

The name of the Edge Historian. Only one historian can exist in an Edge Gateway.
The name of the default Edge Panel visualization method (Vision or Perspective). Only one visualization system can be used in an Edge Gateway. This value is unused if the Edge Panel plugin is not licensed. Default is Vision.
