How to Use

1. Copy Files to Station Directory


After downloading all the files, copy all files to an accessible station directory. E.g. Create a folder named AlarmTemplate.

2. Add Licensing Service


Templates must be licensed, but you manage your own licenses. Licenses are bound to the stations host Id. You will be provided access to the Software and Licensing Portal where you can manage your own licenses. Here you can add, update, or delete licenses as needed.

There are few ways to get a license file:

1. Add our licensing module to your station services. This module automatically retrieves the license from our servers and saves it to your stations shared folder directory.

2. Alternatively, Login to the Software and Licensing Portal (link provided in Order Confirmation) and add your host id's as needed. Copy the license file to the stations shared directory.

Make sure the station user has access to WLicenseService in the user management and category service section.

Finally, in the service properties make sure the Enable Template Support option is set to true.

3. Setup the Navigation Menu


Log into the station (as a super-user) with your favourite browser and go to index.html page. Click on Settings.

As the super-user you will go through your stations configuration and apply views to each asset. Additionally, set each asset to either show/hide on the navigation menu. When a user logs on only those assets will appear in the menu with their respective views.

There are also settings to change theme colors, home link, and title.

4. Set the Alarm Console Recipient


Log into the station (as a super-user) and set up the view in the Settings section.

5. Setup a Nav File


A nav file is included in your download. Set this for each user in the normal Niagara way. When a user logs-in they will be directed to the location in the nav file. Verify the folder below exists, modify as required.


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

<nav version='1.0'>
<node name='Home' ord='file:^AlarmTemplate/index.html%7Cview:web:FileDownloadView'
      icon='module://icons/x16/home.png' />
</nav>
                                

6. Setting Up Users


Additionally you can set users so only super-users can see the settings menu. This is done using the stations user administration in the normal way.

1. Set up a role that has the following access. See Operator Example.

2. In the user service, set the role to the role created above. Additionally, set the nav file to the one created in step 4.

3. Set the appropriate permissions in the Category Browser. See example.
