Supported Data Types For Use with Shared Variable and Web Service While Using Data Dashboard

Updated Feb 2, 2018

Issue Details

When I am browsing for Shared Variables or Web services in Data Dashboard I am unable to see some of my Shared Variables, Web methods, and Web method output terminals.  Are there limitations on what data types Data Dashboard supports?

Solution

Data Dashboard 1.0

Data Dashboard 1.0 supports the following Shared Variable data types, Web method request types, and Web method output data types:
Shared Variable Data TypeI8, U8, I16, U16, I32, U32, I64, U64, SGL, DBL, Boolean, and String
Web Method Indicator Data Type    I8, U8, I16, U16, I32, U32, I64, U64, SGL, DBL, Boolean, and String
Web Method Request Types    GET
Web Method Output Type/Format    Terminal/XML


Data Dashboard 2.0

Data Dashboard 2.0 supports the same data types as Data Dashboard 1.0, in addition to the following:
Shared Variable and Web Method ControlsEnum
Shared Variable and Web Method Indicators1D array of supported numeric values, points*, strings; 2D array of supported numeric values, points; Enum
* Each point is a cluster that contains a pair of supported numeric values.
 

Additional Information

If you create a dashboard in Data Dashboard 1.0 that uses I64 or U64 data, the dashboard might not display the full precision for that data in Data Dashboard 2.0.

In unsupported cases Data Dashboard will choose to not display these items rather than not allow the user to connect.

In Data Dashboard 2.0 data type support is described in the App help.
 
1. Select the ? on the left hand side of the toolbar.

2. Select Help and Support in the bottom right of the overlay.
3. Select Connect to Data from Dashboards to view supported data types.
