Automatic publish

Abstract

Read this article in order to learn more details about the Automatic publish method developed for the i4designer projects created on an i4connected platform.

The Automatic publish method is currently exclusively available for the i4designer projects created for the i4connected platform. Hence, it only takes a few mouse clicks to transfer an i4connected visualisation to the system of the respective plant - without interrupting the running operation.

The Automatic publish action can be accessed from the following panels:

  • The Automatic publish button from the main Builds panel

  • The Automatic publish button from the Builds panel, on the Deployments page

Important

Before using the Automatic publish option to deploy i4connected projects, the build location should be defined, under the Build Configuration panel, on Deployments page. The Build location should point to an active and publicly available i4connected (version 5.5.20 or higher) environment.

As soon as the Automatic publish button has been clicked, a toast message with an integrated progress bar will pop up.
