  • Mendix

    • The Mendix buildpack is currently available on MindSphere running on region China 1.

Known issues

  • Applications using the Mendix buildpack are currently not supported for MindAccess Operator

  • When deploying an application to MindSphere, the app name has to be compliant with the MindSphere naming conventions.

  • Binary File Storage: MindSphere does not currently have a compatible file service available to its Cloud Foundry stack. Therefore, you cannot use any Mendix features which rely on having a file service.

  • At present, MindSphere only supports two roles. This should be taken into account when designing security within your Mendix app.

  • It is recommended that you create two scopes for your MindSphere app, user and admin which will map to identically-named user roles in your Mendix app.

IoT and Storage Services: File Service

Known issues

  • For security reasons a strict timeout is enforced. Currently, this leads to the situation that the size of a file which can be uploaded/ downloaded depends on the network bandwidth at client side.

  • When uploading files to the File Service, a file name must not contain blank spaces. Blank spaces in the file name will prevent the file form being stored.

  • After deleting an asset, associated files might still be accessible for up to 30 minutes as this data is deleted asynchronously.

IoT and Storage Services: Time Series Service

What's new?

  • Time Series Bulk import API

    This API allows to bulk import IoT time series data based on files uploaded via IoT File Service. Data import for simulation entities is supported with up to nano second precision and for performance entities with up to millisecond precision. A bulk import is modeled as asynchronous job whose status can be retrieved after creation. Successfully imported time series data can be retrieved using the read operation.

Known issues

  • The maximum payload size of a message sent to Time Series service as part of a PUT request cannot exceed 1 MB.

  • The service will never return more than 2000 records in a response

  • After deleting an asset, respective Time Series data might still be accessible for up to 30 minutes as this data is deleted asynchrounously.
