Error browsing properties. Be sure the remote device/server is connected and configured properly

I use EMS to connect remote thing to thingworx platform in window 7, I have edit the config.json and config.lua,and start wsems.exe and luaScriptResource.exe.

on thingworx platform, browsing remote properties, it shows error: Error browsing properties. Be sure the remote device/server is connected and configured properly.

1、config.json as follows:

{

    "ws_servers": [

        {

            "host": "localhost",

            "port": 8080

        }

    ],

    "appKey": "93ba9f9a-5d75-4cbd-817e-590863d830cd",

    "ws_connection": {

        "encryption": "none",

        "verbose": true

    },

    "certificates": {

        "validate": false

    },

    "logger": {

        "level": "TRACE",

        "audit_target": "",

        "publish_directory": "D:/temp",

        "publish_level": "TRACE",

        "max_file_storage": 2000000,

        "auto_flush": true

    },

    "http_server": {

        "host": "localhost",

        "port": 8000,

        "ssl": false,

        "authenticate": false

    },

    "auto_bind": [

        {

            "name": "MyEMS",

            "gateway": true

        },

        {

            "name": "EdgeThing",

            "host": "localhost",

            "port": 8001,

            "protocol": "http",

            "gateway": false

        }

    ]

}

2、config.lua

scripts.log_level = "TRACE"

scripts.EdgeThing = {

    file = "thing.lua",

    template = "example",

}

scripts.sample = {

  file = "sample.lua"

}

scripts.rap_host= "localhost"

scripts.rap_port=8000

scripts.rap_resource_host= "localhost"

3、I create a remote thing on thingworx platform, called EdgeThing .

ems can connect to thingworx  platform, and EdgeThing isConnected=true.but cannot access properties remotely.


4、http://localhost:8001/scripts/,when open this url, is shows net::ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED

who knows this problem?

Zhi Wei, just to make sure, you have example template under microserver folder/etc/custom/ templates, right? Can you post your lua logs?

Is this the OOTB Lua script or did you make modifications to the .lua files?

yes, it's OOTB Lua script.

Zhi Wei, can you try this - if you go to your EdgeThing, and click on the Identifier section in the General Information section, do you get anything in the list? If you do, can you try selecting that, save the Thing and then try browsing for remote properties?

Re: Error browsing properties. Be sure the remote device/server is connected and configured properly

Thank you Aanjan -- this fixed my problem!  (I've been searching for ages.)  I ended up typing the name of the thing in the Identifier section, and suddenly it all sprang into life.

Re: Error browsing properties. Be sure the remote device/server is connected and configured properly

No problem, glad that got resolved! One way to check this, is by going into Monitoring -> Remote Things and then click on the Unbound tab. That should list any 'Remote Things' that are ready to be connected (and are not associated with any Thing yet).

On a side note, if you've been searching for a while, and didn't find it until now, we definitely need to improve our search engine results

Re: Error browsing properties. Be sure the remote device/server is connected and configured properly

I think my problem was that I was trying fixes from various discussions, so I had blindly added the identifier entry to config.lua in the scripts.PiThing section.  I thought that this was just "belt and braces" -- i.e. ensuring that the right RemoteThing was used.  But as I now understand it, the identifier completely overrides the Thing's name from a binding point of view.  This, I have come to realise, is why I kept seeing "*PiThing" instead of "PiThing" in REST calls.

The problem was exacerbated by the fact that the remote thing was not actually listed as unbound -- it was in the "All" tab but had a red exclamation mark icon next to it rather than a green tick icon.  So it appeared somehow to be partially bound but I couldn't work out what was missing or incorrectly configured!

The search engine is pretty good, I think, although doesn't always return results that I know to be there somewhere (having seen them before).  I couldn't find "*PiThing" referred to anywhere, from what I recall, and I was trying to work out what that meant.

Re: Error browsing properties. Be sure the remote device/server is connected and configured properly

Ah, if you had set it with a wildcard *, I think it was trying to associate with the same name, so that's why you didn't see it in the unbound tab. If you both the Thing and the name set for the Identifier have completely different names, then you would see it.

And with the search difficulties, we also need to start marking answers correct (on all applicable threads) so that it's easier to find what worked and what didn't; rather than scouring through the contents.

Thanks again Aanjan.  To be honest, I think this highlights (along with other issues I've had) the need for more comprehensive documentation and reference material for ThingWorx.  (If there is some, I've somehow never seen it!)

Re: Error browsing properties. Be sure the remote device/server is connected and configured properly

No problemo! And I agree, we are adding more documentation and filling gaps where ever we can find; and this topic is one area where we don't have that much documentation around (other than a quick start/ how to connect guide or articles around bugs).

Re: Error browsing properties. Be sure the remote device/server is connected and configured properly

Since the Lua log does not appear to have any errors or warnings I would be interested in seeing what's happening in your WSEMS log. If you could possibly copy any errors or warnings you are receiving in that log into a comment that would be helpful.
