I apologize if there is an already documented way to do what I am asking, but I work in a different department than the one that maintains the Ignition SCADA software and am not very familiar with the software. I have been given a project that has a requirement of sending an SMS message when a particular alarm condition happens in the SCADA software. The tricky part is that the SCADA software is on a network with no connection to the internet and I am not allowed to connect any celluar modems to send out text messages. Which means I can not use the already created SMS modules that the system has.
So what I would like to know is can I have the Ignition software create an xml file when my alarm condition happens? It would be great if I could include a timestamp and a data point.
I have a way that I can take the xml file and ultimately transmit it to an internet connected machine that could then send the text message. Thank you in advance.
