Download project

Abstract

Check out this article and learn more details on how to configure your system to deploy your i4designer project on premise.

The Download project deployment method or the offline deployment can be used in case of slow speeds or unreliable connections. The generated JSON files in the "local-storage" folder support further manual changes, that the user can apply at run-time.

The downloaded project file can be added to an update service that monitors a dedicated folder on the machine. If an updated package is available in the folder, it will be loaded and applied, allowing the user to view the i4designer project in run-time mode.

The Download project action can be performed in the following panels:

  • Download button from the main Builds panel
