Before Building Operator can be used, the project metadata needs to be uploaded to the cloud.
For every graphical or functional modification in the project, the metadata needs to be uploaded again.
|What is metadata?
Data points are variables that may have a value and properties. These properties are called metadata. Metadata is allocated partly by the installer (during configuration) and partly by the software (at runtime). Based on this data, the software determines what should/can be done with the data point.
For instance, there may be properties that determine whether the value of a data point is read-only or may also be written, whether a data point should be visible in the graphical presentation of the control module (graphic) on screen, what data format is applicable and what values are permitted.
How to upload metadata?
- Make sure you have the required rights in Access Control
See Explanation of user permissions in Priva Access Control (Building)
- Go to My Priva, download the TC Metadata Uploader and use this application to upload the metadata to the cloud from the PC on which TC 8.6 or higher is installed and on which the project database is available.
