I developed a project on ignition full version trial. I bought an edge version license. Is it possible to make a back up of the full version and restore it in the edge version? I'd like to transfer tags, image and projects. When I try the backup, I don't see any project in the edge gateway.
Edge only supports one project, not plural. The only way is to export an individual project from a "full" version to an Edge version.
And you might possibly have to import resources in the Designer, not at the gateway level.
If I export the full version gateway with only the needed project, Could it work?
And my second post is correct.
I have a project on an existing full Ignition install that I need to run on an Edge gateway.
I've exported the project.
How do I import it into the Edge gateway? Or, do I need to use EAM with the Edge as an Agent to push the project out?
A project export won't have any gateway tags, and won't have devices. And no security (user sources or IdP). You'll have to handle all that separately.
If your project is inheriting anything from other projects, you will have to consolidate (or do multiple imports into Edge).
If your project uses
any queries at all, those parts will have to be redone without database functionality.
