I seem to be coming across a bug, where if i bind a local property to a thing then the value does not update & when i save and close the thing, that link then disappears.
Here are the links i have made. (note the values are populated in the Thing that is linked, so they should be showing up here now?)
Then after save and close.
Links are gone.
Matthew, I tested different scenarios trying to reproduce the issue you describing but unfortunately was unsuccessful hence have few addition questions:
1. What is your version of TWX?
2. Can you export the things used to reproduce the issue?
Hi Matthew Felton,
In addition; try linking to the properties of a Thing that does not contain period (.) character in the name.
I tried your solution Ankit and it has only confused me more!. I can now get a link when its a property of the Thing, However any Thing Shape properties used will not get a value from the link as shown below.
So its seems that that '.'s in the Thing names do stop things from working, however I need this to work on the Thing shape otherwise this solution will not be scalable.
Matthew Felton : This seems to be a defect in ThingWorx 7.4 release and has been fixed in higher release. Please Upgrade to higher version ThingWorx e.g. 7.4.2 or 8.0 + and let us know in case you still observe issue.
