@joelhaggar, thank you for quick response!
What you described is 90% of what we want to do. If each remote location has a Mango installed, what you described would be spot on.
The only problem is we don't have mango installed in not every remote location. Mango is new to our environment. We have quite a few different types of systems handling similar process in different remote location. That is why we are looking for a way, preferably a built-in API in Mango, to extract data point values into a system independent data warehouse-ish as part of the analytics platform.
Does this make sense?
I have the following use case and looking for the best way to get data point values data out of Mango Automation into a centralized cloud platform for analytics purpose.
I learned there are 2 different "types" of APIs: one of the REST API through Swagger, another one is the API in the system. Am I understanding it right? Any guidance will be greatly appreciated.
- one SCADA system, such as Mango Automation System, is installed in one facility. There are multiple facilities which located in different geographic locations. Each facility operates independently. The SCADA system captures similar data points (but not all data points are the same nor being captured at the same frequency).
- Some facilities use Mango Automation as the SCADA system and some other facilities use other types of SCADA systems due to legacy reasons.
- We want to integrate all SCADA systems data into a centralized cloud platform and put an analytics layer on it. This is why we are seeking the best way to extract data out of Mango Automation System.
Thank you very much!
I am looking for a way to change data point value using Mango API.
I searched on the forum and ran into a relevant topic (shown above). The last reply has been more than 1 year old. Could you please provide some updates on this topic and point me to the right direction on how to implement that?
