Relative Facilities, Canvas, and You

January 07, 2020 / 0 comments / in / by Blake Miller

Relative facilities have been around in CygNet in some shape or form for many years.  And along the way, there were enhancements made to Studio to assist in creating multi-facility templated screens based on a relative linking model.  However, with Canvas, that relative linking functionality and resolution was baked into the product at the very beginning.   In this post, I’m going to discuss some design considerations and implementation ideas that I hope will help as you create Canvas screens.

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.

Designed to improve upon Config File Updater, this utility makes everything relating to configuration files simpler and more manageable. It allows you to edit any configuration file, validate values in the files and update the file version all from one interface. Let me show you what I mean.
