Write to File Notification Distribution Method

The write to file notification is written to a text file or to an XLSX file when the configured notification condition is met.

You can configure whether new information is appended to the existing file, overwrites the current content of the file, or if it is written to a unique file. By default, new information is appended to the existing file. If the file does not exist, a new text file is created.

You can make the file name dynamic by replacing it with a string variable whose value you control from a program.

The text file or an XLSX file, or a PDF file is saved in the EcoStruxure Building Operation database folder: '...db/notifications'. This location cannot be changed.

You access the notification file from the WorkStation 'System' folder, 'Notification files' subfolder of the EcoStruxure BMS server where the file was generated. You can open the notification file with a text editor or an XLSX file editor, or a PDF file reader installed on the computer.

You can save the notification file, from the WorkStation 'System' folder, 'Notification files' subfolder, to a different location and rename it. You can also delete the notification file.


When you delete the notification file, it is deleted from the physical device.
