Querying point hierarchy list from global script

  • Hi,

    I was wondering if there is a function available for querying the point hierarchy from a global script, similar to DataPointQuery?

    Also, are there any docs regarding the functions/methods that are available in the global scripts, like DataPointQuery?


  • Hi Ian,

    All the functions that would be available in other scripting environments would be available in the global script environment. For instance

    var rootFolders = JSON.parse( JsonEmport.getConfiguration("pointHierarchy") )["pointHierarchy"];
    print( rootFolders );

    which will export the hierarchy, then parse it into a javascript object. You could manipulate that however you wanted.and reimport with

    JsonEmport.doImport( {"pointHierarchy": rootFolders } );

    Methods available to JavaScript are most definitively found here:

    Alternatively you could get the PointHierarchy right from the code, then you could use its methods. Like,

    function printContextPointPath( cxtPnt ) {
      print( com.serotonin.m2m2.vo.hierarchy.PointHierarchy.getPath( cxtPnt.getDataPointWrapper().getId(), 
             com.serotonin.m2m2.db.dao.DataPointDao.instance.getPointHierarchy( true ).getRoot() ) );
      //# use getPointHierarchy( false ) if you're going to modify it and call the DPD's savePointHierarchy method.

    Methods in point hierarchies and point folders are in these classes:

  • Great thanks! I will try that out.
