In Automation Server, in Applications -> CODESYS Projects -> Any project -> Details -> General: What does the button "Open with CODESYS" do? I clicked the button and nothing happens. I attached an image.
I have another question: Is this supposed to open the project source code in Codesys IDE? Is there a way give someone access to the Automation Server so they can deploy an application update to a PLC, but NOT let them open the application source code?
"Open with CODESYS" - at the moment you need to add a command in CODESYS-> Tools-> customize - Automation Server - 'Enable URL handler'
But with next server update on next Tuesday this will not be needed anymore - it should then work without doing this step.
For deploying the application I would recommend to use the tickets:
Can you show me a screenshot? When I go into Tools -> Customize, I do not see "Automation Server." I just want to try this now.
Hi again, Edwin,
I have another question. I just tested the "ticket" system. It seems like the service technician can only commission a PLC only if the PLC has not been commissioned yet. I cannot use it to update the application on the PLC if there is already an application deployed on the PLC. Is it possible to do that?
yes you are right, this will come too, at the moment I have no date when.
At the moment you need to workaround --- not really nice I agree.
this will be implemented second half of the year.
Hope this is soon enough for your application.
I want to revisit the "Open with Codesys" button. My project is uploaded to the Automation Server and has the URL handler enabled. I just tried clicking the "Open with Codesys" button, but nothing happens. See attahed screenshots.
Is there something else I am missing?
no - should work, will be fixed with next release. (should come out on 30.4)
with the release ( today) this works again.
