Discovery and Metadata
Drivers the system can access are represented by database entries. To simplify the creation of these entries available drivers can be scanned for and made available as a searchable list.
You can click scan from the Backoffice UI:
Metadata used to describe the drivers, is defined as part of the driver. For Example:
# Discovery Information
descriptive_name 'Lighting Gateway'
# Communication settings
tokenize delimiter: "\x0D"
delay between_sends: 100
The discovery methods are made available to the driver by the line
include ::Orchestrator::Constants. Without any discovery methods the driver is listed by its class name.
