MindSphere Fleet Manager Plugin¶
Fleet Manager provides built-in plugins and offers third-party providers to integrate their own plugins. These plugins typically display information or configuration options for a selected asset. Built-in Fleet Manager plugins are views for assets, e.g. general information, file management or charts for time series data.
Third-party plugins can provide custom information about assets and are automatically displayed in the Fleet Manager overview alongside the built-in plugins as shown below.
There is no other way to integrate plugins into Fleet Manager than using this SDK.
Third-party Fleet Manager plugins are currently only supported in region Europe 1 and China 1.
Getting the Plugin SDK¶
The Fleet Manager Plugin SDK integrates third-party plugins into Fleet Manager and provides an interface to communicate with Fleet Manager. This enables Fleet Manager to inform the plugin about user actions and vice versa.
The visibilty of third-party plugins is configured using roles. Plugins are only displayed for users who have the required roles.
Date Time Range Picker¶
A date time range picker is available for custom plugins and can be activated, if needed.
Plugin developers can define additional plugin information for their plugin. The plugin information displays the plugin name, copyright information, links and provider information. If the plugin is provisioned to another tenant, the provider information refers to the operator tenant.
Differences with Applications¶
The main differences between a web application and a Fleet Manager plugin in MindSphere are:
- A Fleet Manager plugin has to implement the Fleet Manager Plugin SDK.
- A Fleet Manager plugin does not implement the osbar.
- Fleet Manager plugins are registered in Developer Cockpit as a
Fleet Manager Plugin.
