i4connected interaction with i4designer

Abstract

Check out this article and learn more details about the latest i4connected feature, allowing its users to easily publish and use i4designer projects.

This article describes the Application mappings feature that enables the possibility to boost the efficiency of i4connected panels, scoped to a specific hierarchical entity, by integrating i4designer project visualizations.

An i4connected Server integrated service listens to all notifications coming from the i4designer server. As soon as changes at level of existing applications take place (an i4designer publish was triggered), this service will automatically react and proceed with the necessary changes.

By default, i4designer Applications are stored in the i4apps folder on the i4connected Data base.

The Application mapping feature is the solution to handle otherwise hard maintenance scenarios by combining the configuration power of i4connected and the flexibility of the i4designer.

As a result, i4designer Applications will be unconditionally available for all read authorized users, accessible in various i4connected locations:

  • in a Site detailed view mode

  • in an Area detailed view mode

  • in an Organizational Unit detailed view mode

  • in a Device detailed view mode

  • in the new Site Selector panel

  • in the Site Map panel
