Release Notes for system:inmation 1.64
- Handling of Active Components
Improvements have been made to how the Core handles active components. This improves security and avoids connection errors between the Core and other active components, such as the Server and active Connectors.
- OPC UA Client Subscriptions
- DataStudio Script Libraries
- Web API Authentication and Communication
The Web API server now includes fully integrated Windows authentication for the V2 endpoints. Also, the Web API server now treats the Functional Component "0" as the MasterCore. This fixes a problem where a communication error might be displayed immediately after upgrade.
- Web Chart Improvements
Fixes made to the Web Chart to prevent display errors when using the Candlestick and Value Band trend types. Also, issues have been fixed with history retrieval for Process Linked items of GenKPI and Analog Measurement objects.
- Local Cores & Autonomous Site Operation
The Local Core feature allows for the installation of Core services on remote sites that are connected to a centralized Master Core. Local Cores can operate autonomously in the event of a connection outage, maintaining ability of on-site archiving and history calls. After connection has resumed, the Master Core is updated along with the appropriate centralized System Data Stores.
- Script Manager - Find and Replace
- Custom Event (A&E) and Production Tracking Data Stores
Two new custom data stores are introduced in this release, the Custom Event Data Store and the Custom Production Tracking Data Store to stand alongside the already introduced Custom Time Series Data Store. All three can be used with the Local Core and Autonomous Site Operation functionality or within a single Core system.
Important information about changes to Lua and Web API behavior with Custom Data Store Objects
in this version, the behavior of certain Lua and Web API functions/endpoints has changed in regards to accessing the new Custom Data Store Objects.
Lua functions from the list below now include an option to select a Custom Data Store object (as a path to the object or objspec).
Web API endpoints from the list below now include an option to select a Custom Production Tracking Data Store object:
- History Transporter Progress Bar
The percentage progress of your History Transfer operations can now be followed to a one decimal place precision on the progress bar.
- Web Chart Improvements
The Web Chart has been updated to fix some minor issues and to improve the overall user experience.
- Object Path Specification
Clarification of path specification (pathspec) and object specification (objspec) as arguments for inmation Lua API functions. An objspec can only refer to an object whereas pathspec can refer to an object or a property.
Important information about changes to Lua API behavior
in this version, the behavior of certain Lua API functions has changed.
While it is not expected that correctly written user code would take advantage of the previously erroneous behavior, it is nevertheless possible that issues with backward compatibility may arise. If you suspect that you are affected by these changes in the behavior, please contact Support.
|the Lua code that may be executed through the Web API "Execute Function" and "Advanced" endpoints is also affected by these changes. However, any Lua code that the other Web API endpoints execute internally runs in a compatibility mode with respect to the first group of changes, and are not affected by these changes. Therefore, these Web API endpoints will still accept property-containing paths. This will be deprecated in a future version.|
Compatibility of 1.64 with Visual KPI 22.214.171.1247
For system:inmation v1.64, it is recommended to use version 126.96.36.1997 of Visual KPI.
system inmation v1.64 remains compatible with older versions of Visual KPI from 188.8.131.524 onwards. However, due to known issues, Visual KPI 5.57 should not be used.
