    Network Objects

    I would like to design my network thing with a folder structure, is there a way i can use network objects such as folders? Can these folder objects be repeated with the network so that it looks like a normal directory structure?

     

    At the moment i can't see how to place anything but Things inside the network.

     

    Thanks

        Andrew, Networks are meant to be used with Things. They essentially define and represent Thing hierarchy. Here's a link to our Help Center that explains in detail what Networks are. If the link doesn't take you directly to the Networks page, they are available under the 'ThingWorx Model Definition and Composer' section.

         

        If you're looking for a traditional folder structure that actually uses folders and files, you can use a Thing based on the FileReposity Template. That would create a new folder under ThingworxStorage\repository\ with your Thing name.
