Ignition comes with some default modules when installing the software. There may be a few modules you require that are not included when performing the initial installation, however. To find the module(s) you require, follow the instructions below.
Installing a module will require connected Vision Clients and Designers to restart. Perspective Sessions will not require a restart.
Production systems using either Clients or Designers should wait for downtime before installing a module.
On the Gateway Webpage, select Config > Modules to open the Module Configuration page.
Scroll to the bottom on the list, find the blue arrow, and click the Install or Upgrade a Module link.
Click Choose File, select a
.modl file that you have previously downloaded.
Go to the Inductive Automation downloads page. Search for the module you want and save it to your Downloads folder on your computer.
Third Party Modules
To install third party modules:
Go back to the Install or Upgrade Module screen and browse your Downloads folder for your module, select it, and click Open. Ignition will copy the path to the module to the Browse field and all that's left for you to do is click Install.
Uninstalling a module will require connected Vision Clients and Designers to restart. Perspective Sessions will not require a restart.
Production systems using either Clients or Designers should wait for downtime before uninstalling a module.
Because of the isolated nature of modules, the other modules are not affected by the restart (unless they depend on that particular module).
The installed module list on the Module Configuration page also provides some basic information about the State of the module. The Version, License, and State columns are all displayed in the list. Module licensing is performed centrally in System > Licensing, so the values here are only for information purposes.
The module State can be either Running or Loaded:
