Nodes and Configuration

Nodes are the container objects that store all data and configuration for your projects. The following types of Nodes are available:


icon-workspace Workspaces
Workspaces are special container Nodes that can be shared with other users. All other Nodes are created within the Workspace. Workspaces can only be created by the Account Owner or Administrators.

icon-group Group
Groups are simple nodes that provide structure to your Workspaces. You may choose to group content by geography or related purpose. Groups can be created inside Workspaces, Locations and other Groups.

icon-location Location
Locations are special containers used to associate data with a geographical location. Locations can be created inside Workspaces and Groups.

icon-template Template
Templates are special container Nodes that are used to define consistent structure and configuration. They can be referenced as instances in other Workspaces to speed up automated configuration for large deployments.

icon-chart Chart
Create various types of charts with customized functionality and appearance including historic charts with multiple y-axes and wind rose charts with configurable ranges.

icon-dash Dashboard
Dashboards allow users to create customized views of their data in visually appealing layouts using animated gauges, charts, lists, maps and other graphical controls.

icon-attachment Attachment
Attachments include images, documents and other files stored in eagle.io. New attachments can be uploaded manually by a user or acquired via an Attachment Source. Attachments can be added inside Workspaces, Locations, Groups and Attachment Sources.

icon-attachmentsource Attachment Source
Attachment Sources have the ability to automatically acquire or receive Attachments. Attachment Sources can be created inside Locations only.

icon-datasource Data Source
Data Sources automatically acquire or receive timeseries data using a variety of different transport options. Connect to a data logger or collect data from files. Data Sources can be created inside Locations only.

icon-datasource-processor Processor
Processors are a type of Data Source containing a process that generates multiple output values, which are stored as new Parameters. Processors can be created inside Locations only.

icon-point-number-range Number Parameter
Number Parameters store historic time series data in numeric format. By default they display the current or historic value(s). Parameters are managed by and are always contained in Data Sources.

icon-point-number-discrete Number Parameter (State variation)
Number Parameters can also be set to display the current or historic state rather than value. This is useful for Boolean or Discrete state data.

icon-point-number-range-control Number Control Parameter
Number Control Parameters are similar to Number Parameters however the value can be controlled by the user. Historic data represents the user control operations.

icon-point-number-discrete-control Number Control Parameter (State variation)
Number Control Parameters can also be set to display the current or historic state(s)

icon-point-number-range-process Number Process Parameter
Number Process Parameters are similar to Number Parameters however the value is generated by a process.

icon-point-number-discrete-process Number Process Parameter (State variation)
Number Process Parameters can also be set to display the current or historic state rather than value. This is useful for Boolean or Discrete state data.

icon-point-text Text Parameter
Text Parameters store historic time series data in text format. They are useful when trying to capture events from log files or text-based data files.

icon-point-text-control Text Control Parameter
Text Control Parameters are similar to Text Parameters however the value can be controlled by the user. Historic data represents the user control operations. Please note: Text Control Parameters for Campbell Scientific data loggers currently do not support Control operations.

icon-point-text-process Text Process Parameter
Text Process Parameters are similar to Text Parameters however the value is generated by a process.

icon-point-time Time Parameter
Time Parameters store historic time series data as timestamps. Note: Time Parameters can not be displayed on charts.

icon-point-time-control Time Control Parameter
Time Control Parameters are similar to Time Parameters however the value can be controlled by the user. Historic data represents the user control operations. Note: Time Parameters can not be displayed on charts.

icon-point-time-process Time Process Parameter
Time Process Parameters are similar to Time Parameters however the value is generated by a process.
