On this page ...

Web-launch technology lets you launch the Designer by clicking a link on your desktop or your browser's task bar. Simply do a one-time install of the Designer Launcher from the Gateway webpage. The Designer will locate all the Ignition Gateways on your local network, and you can add them as shortcuts to your Designer Launcher. The same Designer can access all the projects that are available on that Gateway, and you don't need to add the Designer multiple times for different Gateways!

  1. The Designer is launched from the Home page on the Gateway webpage, as shown in the image below. You will need to login to Ignition to access the Designer. If this is your first time accessing the Designer, you will need to download and install the Designer Launcher. Click Download and follow the steps for installing the Designer Launcher in the Open the Designer section of the Quick Start Guide. 

  2. The section on Open the Designer of the Quick Start Guide also goes over creating shortcuts for individual Designers, and using the default Designer Launcher window to view all the Designers you have permission to open. Placing shortcuts on your desktop or pinning them to your browser's task bar makes them readily accessible for opening a Designer quickly! You can create an individual icon for specific Gateways,  

    or use the default Designer Launcher that opens a window that displays all the Gateways you have access to. 

  3. Click the Launch button for the Gateway you want to access. Once the Designer is started, you will be prompted with the login window. Enter your username and password. 

  4. Once logged in, the Open/Create Project window will open and you can either open an existing project, or create a new project. To create your first project, refer to Creating a Project later on this page.
