Read file access to Ignition server


This is more kind of an IT question but I am sure I will find the answer here.

We have 2 different server’s (Ignition and External Vendor) installed on the 2 different virtual machine under same physical server ! Now, there is a need for Ignition to look at the another virtual machine’s folder directory every second and read a file.

Let say, if I create a shared folder between these two (do I have to allow the access of that shared folder to the admin of Ignition server ? since, I am reading the file through gateway script there is no way to pass the credential that way)

Thanks !!

Ignition runs as a service under a system account that normally doesn’t have access to network shares. You’ll want to set up specific mapped drives for the service to access:
