@phildunlap Hi Phil, right now I have a Virtual data source for the purpose of simulation but in production we will have a Modbus I/P datasource. So thinking ahead - say I were to use an ssh data source and data point to trigger my script. Then I would have to set up a point link between the Modbus I/P datapoint to trigger my SSH datapoint which would then trigger my script?
As for the SSH datapoint, are you suggesting to use either of the query command/settable command to execute my shell script?
I just want to make sure I understand the full picture before I attempt something that might not be suited for my production environment.
