Bugfix 3.11.0

  • Important - There is now a new type of mapping in MindSphere (unitless mapping) which versions before 3.11.0 are not aware of and which was causing the node to create mappings with the “null” unit. (that is “null” as a string). This is fixed in version 3.11.0. It is strongly recommended to upgrade to 3.11.0 if you are using automatic mapping feature.

3.7.0 (Vienna Ocelots) - April 2020

New Features 3.7.0

  • new docker images with version 1.0.* for multiple architectures
  • the old 0.20.* based docker images are now deprecated
  • the node has now a link to agent diagnostic application in the mindsphere
  • new configuration button to delete all local data of the agent (including the .mc/agentconfig.json)
  • the node will await parallel asynchronous requests automatically after configured number of seconds
  • the node will regularly display information about asynchronous requests

Important docker image user change - for users upgrading from versions before 3.7.0

If you are using host directories for docker persistence and you are upgrading from previous version of docker images (which were based on 0.20.* version of node red) you will have to ensure that any existing data and .mc directory has the correct ownership. As of 1.0 this needs to be 1000:1000. This can be forced by running the command

sudo chown -R 1000:1000 path/to/your/node-red/data
sudo chown -R 1000:1000 path/to/your/node-red/data/.mc

on the host system.

Consider using docker named volumes instead.

This is necessary because of the change in the base docker image of node-red. See also https://nodered.org/docs/getting-started/docker

Bugfixes 3.7.0

  • the node now removes previous keep alive and async logging interval on redeployment (#39)
  • fixed CSS for node-red > 1.0.0 (the node title is white again)
  • updated to mindconnect-nodejs 3.7.0
  • bumped all dependencies
