trigger event on dummy device possible?

#1 Post by dolittle » 17 Jan 2020, 19:47

Hi,
I'd love to trigger an event on a dummy device change. There's a quad type dummy device defined called "flags" and it has values like "status". Unfortunately the rule engine doesn't trigger an event. So a rule like

Code: Select all

on flags#status do
  something
endon
doesn't execute the "something" part.

Is this a bug or a feature?

Thanks a lot

To trigger a dummy device event you should execute a TaskRun after the TaskValueSet. See this:
