The Counter Adapter is an adapter that is installed into Kinetic Bridgehub that counts up and returns a new number every time it is called.
Note: Check to ensure that this adapter isn't already installed into your bridgehub as part of the base installation before undertaking the installation tasks.
|File Name||The name of the configuration file that the count will be stored in. Use different names for independent counters.|
The File Name configuration value is the name of the configuration file that contains what the current count is. If you specify a file name that has already been used on another counter bridge, the new bridge will continue counting up from where the current bridge left off. If you specify a new file name, the bridge will start the count from base count value.
**Example: **If you have a bridge with a file name of counter-config _that has a current count of 450. If you create a new bridge with a file name of _counter-config, the first count will be 500 (the next available chunk after 400 with chunk sizes of 100). If you create a new bridge with a file name of _incident-config _though, your first count will be 100 (the lowest count value).
**Note: **This call will return values even when a Structure, Field, and Query aren't supplied, but these are the suggested values to use when mapping the bridge.
_There are no valid queries for this bridge. _To use this bridge with Request CE, where a query is required, create a qualification (something like Increment) and then edit the qualification mapping and accept it as being blank.
