I'm running mango 3.5.6
I have been working on getting meta (calculated) data points (those under a meta data source) working under non-ideal conditions. I have success in using the CONTEXT to determine the timestamp of the update that triggered the script, then using this to look up the value of all points to calculate and setting it as the timestamp of the value being calculated.
This works for quite well, as long as the publisher is able to buffer the data through any communication delays.
However, if the data is missed and later is updated by a Synchronize, it appears that the meta point script is NOT triggered. I am aware that it's possible to perform a "Generate History" on the meta data source to calculate values for data that has come through on a synchronize.
Can you please tell me if there have been any changes in this area in v3.6, or is there a simple way of automating history generation to trigger after data is synchronized?
