How to Add a Remote Historian View (version 22)
In most Canary deployments the Views service is installed locally to the Historian service. There are some instances though (mostly with larger deployments) where it may be beneficial to install a Views service that is separate from the Historian. This may be to offload some other Canary services such as Calculations & Events or Axiom. In that case, the Views service is installed on a separate server along with the other Canary service (i.e. Axiom) and reaches out to a remote Historian. In this way, another instance of the Historian is not needed just to run Axiom on a separate server.
- Open the Canary Admin and navigate to the Historian tile>Configuration>Endpoints on the Historian server.
- Enable the anonymous (55281) or secure (55282) endpoint, depending on how you want to connect.
- Open the Canary Admin and navigate to the Views tile>Configuration>Historians on the remote Views server.
- Click the 'ADD' button and provide a 'Historian name' and 'Historian server address'. The Historian name can be whatever the user specifies. The Historian server address must be the actual server name or IP address.
- If making a secure connection to the Historian server (55282), the Views client must be allowed by navigating to the Access tab and clicking the 'ALLOW' button. The GUID of the Views client will initially appear in the 'DENY' list until manually allowed.
- Once added, a new 'Remote Historian' view will appear in the Views tile.
