Remote Property Binding Through Rest API

Hi, 

 

I am using TWX 9.1 with manufacturing app and Postgres as persistence provider. I have set up kepserver on another machine. I have done the configuration of remote thing in kepserver. 

I am doing below steps in TWX using postman -

1. I am creating a thing using below URL and body 

http://XX.XX.XX.XX:8080/Thingworx/Resources/EntityServices/Services/CreateThing

body -

{

"name": "testThing",

 "thingTemplateName": "PTC.SCA.SCO.KepserverBasedPhysicalAssetThingTemplate",

"projectName" : "Demo"

}

 

The thing get created I then enable and restart thing using below URL - 

http://XX.XX.XX.XX:8080/Thingworx/Things/testThing/Services/EnableThing

 

http://XX.XX.XX.XX:8080/Thingworx/Things/testThing/Services/RestartThing

 

Now I manually create a property from composer called test1 data type string. I also assign IndustrialThing property with the remote thing thing name (used in kepserver)

 

I then go back to postman and will to bind a tag defined in kepserver to test1 for which I use below URL and body 

http://XX.XX.XX.XX:8080/Thingworx/Things/testThing/Services/SetRemotePropertyBinding

{
"propertyName" : "test1",
"pushType" : "VALUE",
"Aspects" :    { "industrialDataType""String",
    "tagAddress""Channel1.Device2.Downtime_Code",
    "scanRate"1000,
    "tagType""Static"
}
}
 
Once I run this I get 200OK status in postman but in composer I see the property bound to "test1" and not the tag address .

The values doesn't get transmitted at all, I verified that datatype is string at both the ends. Now If open up composer and run SetRemotePropertyBinding for the testThing. Manually pass the parameter as input to the service and run it, it works fine (see below screenshot)
