In regards to this post
The gateway script is working but it’s sending me two emails instead of one. I mean, I only have one instance of executeAndDistribute but when I trigger it (to when the tag is = 1) its sending me two emails. Anything else I should check to make sure it only sends one email?
Its a shot in the dark, but any chance the report has a scheduled event configured in it? Also I would double check that the your tag change script specifically confirms the value is 1 otherwise it may trigger going high or low.
You could also try putting a logger into your script to confirm it only is executing once there.
no it doesn’t have a scheduled event configured
how can i put a logger on my script?
log.warn("Message goes here")
Something like this should work. I use these temporarily to mark conditions in the system quite a bit during debug.
oh cool brb, i’m gonna try that and see what goes on
currently this is my code
exeRep = system.tag.read("[edge-ksvsclient_edge]ExecuteReport").value
if exeRep == 1:
#code for system.report.executeAndDistribute
I think the reason why its sending two emails is because of the tag write
What im trying to do is when the user clicks on a button from the edge client it writes 1 to the tag “ExecuteReport” and from our central server it will send the report and then I want to reset the tag back to 0. This part works - I am getting the email and the tag is writing back to 0. But what I don’t understand is why the tag write would cause the email to be sent twice? Any suggestions on the workaround for this that I could try? I tried putting the tag write outside the if condition but that didn’t work out as well.
i was able to make this work instead of
if exeRep == 1:
