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.
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.
The following table describes the Edge settings.
The name of the Edge project. Default is "Edge." Only one project can exist in an Edge Gateway. As of release 8.0.8, you can change the name of this project with this setting.
|Tag Provider Name|

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.
