In cases where the machine data is only available on a local web portal, the data can be retrieved by a process called web scraping. This method involves accessing this web portal (which often requires credentials) and capturing the data from the web page. Due to the complexity and unreliability of this type of connection, it is not recommended, however it may be supported if no other communication protocols are available. In such cases, please consult your Ardexa Account Manager.
Ardexa has the capability to read directly from a file. In order to configure a connection to a machine that writes directly to a file, please read this article about the formatting that is necessary and consult your Ardexa Account Manager to ensure a successful connection.
