Asset Management Service

What's new?

  • Origin links for aspects: If an aspect is derived from another aspect, the origin aspect is flagged to identify the origin of inherited aspects.

  • Origin links for variables on assets: If variables on an asset type are inherited from another type, the variable is flagged.

  • Assigned property: Images that are assigned to an asset type, have a flag showing that they are assigned. Since assigned images can not be deleted, this flag ensures more transparency.

  • The length of a static string variable can now be extended up to the max. length of 255 characters if the former length was lower

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.
