This example Data Stream demonstrates how to use this Listener to retrieve Boiler 1's LC1001 control out and measurement values from the OPC UA Server.

Refer to configuration to understand all configuration options of this Agent.

Step 1: Add the Agent

Drag the OPC UA Listener onto the canvas and rename it. Link the output endpoint to the printer and save the Data Stream.

Step 2: Configure General

Select the Agent and click Configure. In this case, keep the default Collection and polling interval.

Step 3: Configure Connection

Enter the Connection details of your OPC UA Server: server url, endpoint, and security. In this case, select the server url, "opc.tcp - None - None - Binary" as the endpoint, and Anonymous as the security.

Step 4: Configure Specify Branch

Select the Branch Navigation and Path. In this case, leave it as Using Dot Notation, and enter the Branch Path as Boilers.Boiler #1.LC1001.

Step 5: Configure Tags

Select from the Available Tags and click Add Selected Tags to populate the Tags Grid. In this case, select ControlOut and Measurement.

Enter the Alias and Type for the tags in the Tags Grid. In this case, enter their tag name as the alias and set their type to Double.

Step 6: View Results

Apply the changes, save the Data Stream and publish it.

Let's look at the Live Data View. Observe that the current values of Boiler 1's LC1001 control out and measurement values are printed, every 10 seconds.
