Hello there,

I have got a question in regards to third party connection to PI please.

I want to directly connect to a vendor database has got 3G connection.

The vendor  make the Data available via a Web Interface.

This data is made available in 4 hour intervals an they can deliver as an

XML file via secure FTP for Historian.

They can support data transfer via REST API, sFTP, FTP, and email.

They can support XML and csv formats and will consider developing other
custom formats as required.

Could you please let me know if there would be some steps to follow to make that connection up and running into PI please?

Thank you

Carol
