Course Description

What to expect?

This course provides a walkthrough of the main components of the SORBA platform. Here you will learn how to interact with the IoT Workspace, how to set up your hierarchical data tree structure, and how to use the other tools and applications provided within the platform. Completing this course should give you a working knowledge of how to build projects using SORBA.

Lesson List

  1. Overview - This video goes over the main homepage of SORBA. This is the first page you see when you log on and contains general information about the device.
  2. Workspace - The IoT Unified Workspace is the area from which you will set up your hierarchy of data. From here you can view, control, and create the nodes that make up your system.
  3. Device Node - The device node is the top node within your tree structure. This node controls the settings and networking for your edge device.
  4. Asset and Group Creation - In this video you will learn how to create assets and groups. These nodes help to form the organizational structure for your data.
  5. Channel Creation - This video will teach you how to create a channel. Channels allow you to connect to a machine in order to read and write data between SORBA and the machines you're working with.
  6. Tag creation - Tags are the most basic unit within your tree structure, housed within groups. A tag represents a single variable within your system. Here you can learn how to create tags.
  7. Tag Triggers - This video goes over in greater detail the different tag triggers you can use. These triggers determine when data is being recorded for a tag.
  8. Global vs Asset Level Nodes - The workspace contains some nodes that are global level and some that are asset specific. This video goes over the difference between the two and when each should be used.
  9. Alarms - Alarms allow you to monitor when certain values or states are true within your system. This video goes over how to create and view your alarms.
  10. Notification Channels - This  video goes over how to create a notification channel in order to send  external notifications.
  11. Script Engine - The script engine provides users with a basic python scripting engine that can be used for data manipulation and to code more custom solutions. This video goes over how to use SORBA's script engine.
  12. IoT Connectors - IOT connectors enable users to send and receive data from external databases as well as between different instances of SORBA. Here you can learn how to create and use IOT connectors.
  13. Dashboard and Flow Nodes - Dashboard and flow nodes allow you to control your dashboards and workflows. This video goes over how to access and use these nodes.
  14. Dashboard Node and Reporting - This  video goes over how to set up dashboard reports within dashboard nodes.
  15. Dashboard Variables - This  video goes over how to use dashboard variables to make reporting easier when  scaling a project.
  16. Custom Fields - This video will teach you how to create a custom field. Custom fields can be added on to any node in the workspace to provide extra information to users.
  17. Apply Changes - This video goes over the functionality of the apply changes button.
  18. Cloud Synchronization - This video goes over how to synchronize between an edge instance of SORBA and the associated cloud instance. You will learn how to send and recieve updates to the nodes in order to synchronize.
  19. Classes and Instances - The two main tabs within the workspace. Classes can be used to create templates of your instances that can be duplicated for other applications.
  20. Snapshots - Snapshots are one of the backup tools available within SORBA. Snapshots allow you to capture an image of your workspace that can be restored if necessary.
  21. Workspace Tools - This video goes over the tools that are available for navigating through and making large changes to your workspace more easily.
  22. Ping and Port Terminal - This video shows you how to access the ping check, port check, and terminal tools within SORBA. These tools can be used for maintenance and troubleshooting.
  23. Backup and Restore - This video shows how to use the backup and restore features within SORBA. You can set up your system to automatically backup or you can create manual backups.
  24. Identity Server - In this  video you will learn how to use the SORBA Identity Server to manage users and  set permissions for different users.
  25. Task Flow Example - This  video goes over how to use the SORBA Task Flow to create and deploy a  release.
  26. Data View - The data view provides a quick look at the current values for your data. Here you will learn how to access and use the data view.
  27. Workflows - The workflows provide a basic drag and drop interface in order to manipulate and modify your data. This video shows how to use the workflow tool and how to use the SORBA-specific nodes.
  28. Dashboards - Dashboards provide a visualization tool for your data. In this video you will see how to access and customize your dashboards.
  29. System Events - The system events provide a view of the errors and warnings within SORBA. This tool can help with troubleshooting when you encounter any issues within SORBA.
  30. Advanced Cloud Settings - The advanced cloud settings allow you to control your networking within SORBA and you can use this menu to change the default settings for your cloud connections.
  31. Deploying Models - In this video you will learn how to deploy machine learning models into your workspace. This deployment allows your models to start operating in a real time environment.
  32. Auto Learning - Auto learning allows for continuous improvement of your models as more data is collected. In this video you will learn how to set up auto learning and the different options that are available.
