In this video, you will learn how to set up communication between SystemLink Data Services and a WebVI. 

Software Requirements

This video references code that you can use to follow along. To run this example code, you will need LabVIEW NXG 2.0 or later and the LabVIEW NXG Web Module. You can download the required installers and code from the links below.


Concepts Covered in this Video

  • The NI Web Server—Efficiently host your UIs on-premises using the included NI Web Server. Securely put the right data in front of the right stakeholders through granular access to UIs based on user roles and credentials. Walk through setting up the NI Web Server to allow local access to data through SystemLink Data Services.
  • SystemLink API (formerly known as the Skyline API)—Securely share data between multiple applications running LabVIEW 2014 or newer, LabVIEW Real-Time, and LabVIEW NXG using the SystemLink API, which installs with the LabVIEW NXG Web Module. Visit GitHub for more examples showing how to utilize the SystemLink API.
