Version8.0.10



Ignition Edge was revised and expanded significantly as of release 8.0.10.

The  Edge   Gateway  has many of the same options as the regular  Ignition   Gateway Webpage  along with a few  Edge -specific settings. There are three tabs on the left: Home, Status, and Config. 

Home

The first time you go to the Edge  Gateway Webpage, it shows you several steps to help you get started. Once you're up and running, the  Home  tab lets you download the  Designer  Launcher or Vision Client Launcher, or view a Perspective project. There are some  resource  links to help you get started with  Ignition  quickly: Inductive University, Quick Start Guide or Product Documentation where you can learn about  Ignition  modules, as well as the Appendix which contains a complete reference for  components , expressions, and scripting functions.

When you're first introduced to Ignition, the Homepage is the landing page. It's where you'll find the Designer Launcher, Vision Client Launcher, and Perspective Sessions.

If you're running Perspective as the visualization method for your project, you can launch a Perspective Session from the  Designer,  from the Gateway Webpage, or by entering the web address of the project in your web browser.

Status

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



Config

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

As of version 8.0.10, 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. 

  1. To get to the settings, choose Config > Gateway Settings on the Edge Gateway Webpage.



  2. Scroll down to the Edge Settings section. 



  3. Change the settings as desired, then click Save Changes  at the bottom of the screen.
