Release 203 - March 2021

These are the product updates in release 203.

Release 203 goes live to all “production” customers on 03/14/2021.

Machine Attributes API

The newly released Machine Attributes API allows you to send data to a specific attribute of a Machine via a RESTful API using the /attributes/report endpoint. This enables flexible options to integrate with Tulip from Node-RED, Python, or other languages and services.

With the recent release of our Edge MC, you can connect sensors and machines to your Tulip apps with Node-RED and the Machine Attributes API.

Note: using the Machine Attributes API will require familiarity with REST APIs.

Hey Team!
Feature: * Removed custom image upload button from the asset library

This is not an improvement but a deterioration :slight_smile:

Hey Daniel, do you want to send me an email to share how you were using this feature? We are trying to push the “Asset Library” concept to be managed in a Table instead.

The Asset Library was created before we built Tables, and has some flaws, like:

  1. None of the image customization features that are included in image widgets
  2. Limited to just image file types
  3. When you need to update an image, there is no way to do it across all the apps that might reference the Asset Library.

But, if there are certain advantages to doing it in the current asset library, we are happy to reconsider.

Hey Kevin,
we used the upload button very often, especially during inetrnal trainings. It was very helpful to share prepared pictures and logos with all participants.
