The first step is to configure the galaxy integration in the IntelaTrac Management Console (IMC).  Open Procedure Builder found under Content Management on the left panel.


Select List Manager | Edit | Server Integration Configs from the menu.  


Right-click on WW Galaxy Configuration from the Server Integration Configs panel to Add WW Galaxy Configuration.


Type in the WW Galaxy Configuration information.  An example is shown above.

  • Server Name - A name for the configuration to be used in IntelaTrac.
  • Send Approved Only - Galaxy tag writes will wait on an approval of the procedure in Auditor Plus.
  • User:  A login for the galaxy.
  • Password:  A password for the galaxy.
  • Sleep Seconds - Frequency for the ArchestrA Update Service.  15 minutes is recommended.
  • MX Read/Write TimeOut Seconds - Timeout period for read/write failures.

Reading galaxy tag (object.attribute) values is accomplished using the @GetArchestrAData function.  The following is an example showing the use of this function in a condition.  


Clicking on the ellipsis button found under the Calculation Expression opens the Expression Editor. 


The @GetArchestrAData function has a single argument.  The galaxy tag name is passed as a string. This tag is the galaxy reference.

NOTE:  A wireless connection on the Mobile device is required to fetch the ArchestrA data using the @GetArchestrAData function. This function is part of the Wonderware Galaxy plug-in.
