Step 1) Right click on the Configuration and choose "Add ArchestrA Connection":
Step 2) Enter the credentials that will be used to connect to the Galaxy:
Step 3) Rename the object by Right clicking on it and choosing "Rename".
In this scenario I renamed it to "ArchestrA".
Step 4) Right click on the ArchestrA Object and choose "Add ArchestrAGroup Connection":
Step 5) Right Click on the new ArchetrA group and choose "Rename":
In this scenario I renamed the group to "Objects"
The Device Group Name will be the topic when making a connection to the Gateway OI Server.
Step 6) Right Click on the Gateway OI Server and choose "Activate Server":
Step 7) Test the connection by trying to read an object from the galaxy through the Gateway OI Server.
In the example below, I used Wonderware Client to test the connection:
First Create the connection:
Next, Enter the Gateway connection settings. The Topic must match the Device Group name from Step 5.
Finally, enter the object name you wish to read and click the "AdviseEx" button:
If the object is read correctly you should see a quality value of 0x00c0 as below:
