I created a Vision window where Engineers can enter a Device Name, IP address and select a driver from a drop-down.
When they click the ‘Create Device’ button I use:
To create the devices and tags.
I have complete security control over which users can access the Device Configuration window and none of them need access to the Gateway or the Designer.
I even test the IP to verify it’s valid and then ping it before attempting to create the device and tags.
I am however concerned because those commands (system.device and system.tag.addTag) are not present in Ignition 8 Beta.
Have they been moved to a place I haven’t found yet?
Have they been completely removed (not even deprecated)?
Version 8 is not an option for me without them.
