With EAM, I would like to be able to sync ressources between gateway by selecting them with a more convenient way, for example:
- regex on ressource path
In this way, each time we add some ressources, we don't have to modify the task to add the newly created ressources.
I d'ont know if I missed something for this use case, otherwise, this can be a feature request:
I don't think you missed anything; this would be nice to have, or a generally more useful/flexible way to sync projects between gateways.
We have an Ignition 8.1 Hub and Spoke Architecture with 4 hub sites gateways quite large.
Some perspective client are launced from the hub and in case of network outage or for site operation, some perspective client can be launched from the Local Site.
We need to sync views ressources of the local sites to the hub.
With EAM ressources selection limitations, we have created a "data" project for each site (with sites views and styles) to sync it with the hub.
...> COMMON SCRIPT LIB > DATA SITE1 > DATA SITE2 > DATA SITE3 > DATA SITE4 > HUB PRJ EXE
...> COMMON SCRIPT LIB > DATA SITE1 > SITE1 PRJ EXE
...> COMMON SCRIPT LIB > DATA SITE2 > SITE2 PRJ EXE
...> COMMON SCRIPT LIB > DATA SITE3 > SITE3 PRJ EXE
...> COMMON SCRIPT LIB > DATA SITE4 > SITE4 PRJ EXE
Checking or editing something on the hub gateway need to launch many (too many) designer
With a more flexible way to select views ressources in EAM (site data in a site folder) we can simplify the project Inheritance with no DATA project in our use case.
We hope this improvement in EAM could be done before the 8.1 winter features freeze.
