Binding Function

RFDDTAG

 

Binding ID

DYNAMIC_TAG_LIST

 

Binding Description

Dynamic Content List of Tags

 

Purpose

This binding will allow a user to configure an event payload that posts data to a specified HTTP/HTTPS endpoint using a number of supplied XSL style sheets to format the data into XML. This will enable a TagNet customer to send data to an endpoint without requiring any code changes to TagNet. Essentially this is a non-programmatic method to send a configurable XML payload to an HTTP endpoint. This data would then be parsed by the customers application and integrated with an ERP, MES or other similar system-of-record.

 

There are two variants of the RFDDTAG Binding:

1.Individual tag Info - for every tag seen during the read event cycle, a separate XML payload will be sent to the endpoint, so if (4) tags are read then (4) XML POSTs will take place. This variant is documented here.

2.Multiple Tag List -  the taglist XML contains all tags within the event cycle. So if (4) tags are read then (1) XML POST will take place.  This variant is documented within this topic.

 

The Style Sheets should be copied out of TagNet/Integrator/JSMInstance/RFID/ folder into a user defined folder (e.g. Custom-xsl) within the as they will be overwritten upon subsequent updates to TagNet. The folder path for the modified style sheets would then be TagNet/Integrator/JSMInstance/Custom-xsl

 

Logic

Collects whatever tags are seen during a read event cycle from a given portal and performs the following logic:

Resolves each tag to its mapped object attributes (Product, Asset, or Person) and pushes them in real time to the PEV display Client.

Processes IMOVE rules is so specified in Binding properties and automatically transfers inventory from location A to Location B. Sends out email if IMOVE has [EMAIL] keyword anywhere in description.

Supports full GPIO script as a result of standard MATCH / NOMATCH/ NOTAG variables.

Triggers Camera support if so configured in the Physical Reader profile

Supports all Filter keywords (including *RSSI, *PRODTYPE, *ANTENNA)

Supports Binding Email Exceptions. Email notification is sent when an error is encountered.

Sends out Tag Event data as listed below via an HTTP post to the user defined endpoint

Read Point attributes (Logical/Physical reader, antenna, RSSI, timestamp, etc.)

Base Item attributes

Asset attributes

Tag Mapping attributes

Tag Inventory attributes

UDA's (both Asset and Tag Inventory via UDA Group)

Parent/Child attributes

Employee attributes

The chart below shows what attributes are sent in the XML payload

Can be used in RSSI zone configurations and supports system logging.

Combines features from RFDPEVG and RFDPOST

Can be run synchronously as an event binding or in Batch functions.

Binding Properties

Email Notification

The email address to send binding specific alerts. Note: This overrides the default SMTP Recipient value under System Settings

 

UDA Grouping

UDA's at both the Asset instance level and Tag Inventory level instance can be included in the Dynamic XML by grouping them in a UDA Group Name

 

Dwell Time

Dwell time prevents the tag from being included in the web service request when seen again at the same gate when vehicle dwells there.  Refer to the the Binding Change for detailed explanations of this directive.

 

IMOVE Rules

These directives specify the name and location of the XML. Refer to the the Binding Change for detailed explanations of each directive.

 

Data Layout & Style Sheets

This section specifies the content type (XML today with JSON in future), the Data layout, and the style sheet names that have been edited to included your specific attributes. Note that these style sheets are for the individual tag transaction payloads as denoted by the *TAGLIST Data Layout selection.
