Ignition 8 Project (Inheritance ++) Setup for Gateway upgraded from 7.9

Applies To and Version Info

Ignition 8 / Sepasoft Modules 2.9.4 XXX


Options to setup Project(s) and impact on what is seen or not, can or cannot be edited in Designer

Assuming the Ignition 8 "fresh" install or the Upgrade from 7.9 were as follow (and as recommended)

Option 1) Ignition 8 "fresh" install

  • Install Ignition 8 
  • Install Sepasoft Modules 2.9.4 RC#
  • Restore 7.9 Gateway disabled
  • connect DB, configure GW, configure MES Settings
  • edit Project 

Option 2) Upgrade from 7.9

  • Upgrade to Ignition 8 
    caution !!! at the step/pop up where Ignition is informing you that is has detected other modules that will not be automatically upgraded
    pause the upgrade, (i.e. do NOT click "yes".. yet)

    move the Sepasoft Modules 2.9.4 RC# (downloaded from Early Access)
    to C:\Program Files\Inductive Automation\Ignition8\user-lib\modules (windows)
    to /var/lib/ignition/user-lib/modules (Linux)

  • when all modules are copied you can click "yes" and continue and complete the upgrade


Whichever path was used (above) the final result should be that you can now see 2 new Projects together with the Work Project you had
in 7.9 : 
MESGateway and Global (explanation in Ignition 8 Readiness)

these are the typical Settings

1) General Project Overview

MESGateway and Global were created during the 

2) MES Getaway

3) Global

4) Workplace Project

Designer will show

caution !!! with this configuration you can "see" the Production Model but any changes to it will be lost.
if you want to make changes to the Production Model, you must make them (open) in the MESGateway Project
