Two-factor Authentication for CygNet Bridge API

August 01, 2019 / 0 comments / in API General  / by Peter Franklin

CygNet Bridge API provides web-based access to CygNet data. See Eric's post for an overview of the debut Bridge API release. With the latest version, we've added many new features. We've added the ability to retrieve and acknowledge alarms, send and retrieve device data group transactions, send commands, and more. But the new feature I want to tell you about today is two-factor authentication (TFA).

TFA allows you to add an extra layer of security to your CygNet Bridge API. Instead of only requiring the user's login credentials for authentication, TFA requires the user to additionally provide a temporary 6-digit code that is generated by an authenticator app on their phone. See this video demonstrating how it works for the user.

8.5.1 Preview: CygNet Broadcast

June 06, 2017 / 0 comments / in API General  / by Walter Goodwater

Have you ever needed to send a message out to all your CygNet Studio users? Maybe you need to let everyone know about some planned (or unplanned…) server downtime. Or maybe you want to inform everyone about a change to a screen, field asset, or company policy. Or maybe you noticed free cake in the break room and you’re feeling generous. Sure, you could write an email, but does everyone in the control room have Outlook open? If only there was a way to send a message to all open Studio and Vision clients in your site…

An Exclusive Event…Only a Select Few Can Even Hear About It

Consider this scenario.  I have an overview grid screen that has a list of wells with some high level information.  I click on one of the wells and a separate screen opens with more detail.  On that detail screen, I click on a button that opens another screen that has a trend with various well points.   Cool, I have separate dedicated screens that I’m able to view the various bits of information I desire at the same time.  Now I want to be able to select on a different well on the first screen and have the other screens follow.  And, I want to be able to look at multiple sets of these screens for different wells at the same time.  How can I do that

Tired of Attending the Same Old Events? Try Throwing Your Own Custom Event

In my previous post How to change a tab strip selection, I discussed the use of HyperLinkSys as a means of passing data from a nested view screen to its parent screen. In that technique, the data passed from the nested view was used to change the selection of a tab strip on the parent screen. In keeping with the theme of initiating an action from a nested view, I will present a different technique using custom events for more complex interactions.

CygNet .NET API: Integrators, your life just got (a wee bit) easier

July 27, 2015 / 0 comments / in API General  / by CygNet Blog Admin

I’m not sure how many of you noticed, but with the arrival of CygNet 8.1.3 came a fresh face in town to help with all your API woes (well, some of them anyway).  Our first round of .NET API assemblies were unleashed into the world to bring hope and joy to all who write their own integration applications on top of the CygNet system.

Up until this point, you’ve had a couple of different tools at your disposal.  CygNet ODBC, the COM scripting API, and the Enterprise Integration Suite are some of the different options you have to select from when you want to build an application to interact with CygNet. Each of these tools has its own set of advantages and disadvantages.
