Write value on KepServerEX tag from Thingworx, is it possible?

Is there a way that I can write a value on a KepServerEX tag from Thingworx?. for example, I need to change a boolean tag of KepServerEX, but I need it to change from a Thingworx mashup using a checkbox widget. This value will change the internal logic of KepServerEX.

 

Thanks.

 

Valeria.

You can do this as long as the tag is read/write

If you are using KepEX and have it connected to an industrial connection and then mapped to an industrial thing, that two way communication should happen automatically when you update the property value.

Just keep in mind, if you are writing to a tag to which Kepserver writes as well, you may get some undesired behavior of overwrites.

So usually these types of tags are for setpoints or configuration if you are writing to them from ThingWorx.

Ok ok, now I understand. I use the same connection to read a value from KepServerEx, now, instead to read the value, I have to set the value. I was thinking that it has to be in a different way

 

Thanks @PaiChung
