Niagara Ax/N4 Open Weather Service


Weather Service

Overview


The Niagara open weather service retrieves live weather data from the Open Weather Map Weather Service. The Open Weather Map Weather Service is FREE and access is provided by an API key which must be entered on the property sheet. It also retrieves a 5 day weather forecast. Both AX and N4 versions are included. This module is FREE when purchasing our Weather Widget. Or you can buy it as a standalone station service.

Note: The Wunderground weather service is no longer free, so we have changed weather providers. If you have a Wunderground API key it will stop working soon.

Usage


1. Copy the openWeatherService-rt.jar file to your modules directory.
2. Open the module from your palette file.
3. Drag and drop the service to your stations services configuration.

Licensing (N4 Only)


Widgets and drivers must be licensed with us. 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.

Finally, make sure the station user has access to WLicenseService in the user management and category service section.
