Mango 3.0 - Renaming a datasource does not propagate to data points

  • Not a show stopper but when I renamed the datasource name for a modbus entry the data points under that device name was not renamed.0_1494292221493_m2mcap1.jpg


  • Hi chrachp,

    Many types of data sources, such as Modbus, can support accessing multiple devices over the connection, hence the use of slave IDs on the bus. This enables you to identify each device independent of its transport medium, and identify the transport medium by its data source.

    You can mass modify the device names by using the import / export tool (I'd use the export button in the row for the data source if you're trying to get all the points), and if...

    JSON: find/replace regex .*"deviceName":.* --> "deviceName":"yourDeviceName",
    CSV: overwrite the value in the device name column

    and then import.

  • Thanks. That makes sense.
