I am getting demo expired error in my history tag provider
I am running a 2 hour trial version of Ignition. How to get rid of this error?
Even if I create a new provider, it gives the same error for it as well.
As a result of this I am unable to see historical trends of tags
Has your demo ran out?
I just launched into an unlicensed gateway, it was timed out (of demo), my screen looked exactly like yours and as soon as I clicked reset trial it went to:
Provider Name Enabled Type Description Status
MDB true Datasource History Provider Running
That was an 8.1.15 Gateway
Oh Ok! Simple as that!
I was not getting the historical trends in display, so I thought something went wrong with the tag history database.
Its working fine now.! Thanks a lot.
Yeah, the 2-hour demo is fully functional, but most aspects stop when the 2 hour runs out. If you need longer to proof of concept something for a customer that you think will lead to a license sale, reach out to your IA exec and they should be able to provide you with a one-off 30-day testing license.
I am aware of the trial mode, I didn’t realize trial has expired while I was testing trends in reports, so thought something went wrong with the history DB!
The error description was misleading as it didn’t say trial expired, it said demo expired so I thought its some different error!
