I have a device, an inverter, that has a bunch of data points.
I manually setup this device as a datasource "Inverter.1", and manually configured all of the data points for the correct modbus register / data type.
What I want to do is duplicate this datasource. I have 14 inverters. They are all identical, except that the ModBus slave id is incremented.
So the initial datasource is "Inverter.1" slave id "1".
So the second datasource is "Inverter.2" slave id "3".
So the third datasource is "Inverter.3" slave id "3".
How can I easily duplicate inverter 1 and add the rest of the inverters without manually setting up all of the modbus stuff 13 times?
I looked at exporting JSON configuration but I got confused (how / where do I generate new XIDs for the new datasources / datapoints?).
It seems like there must be a more simple way?
Let me know!
