Description
Global discovery enables a Client to find OPC UA Servers within an enterprise using arbitrary network architectures. It is supported by means of a Global Discovery Server (GDS), an OPC UA Server Application that manages a database of OPC UA Applications.

Usage Considerations

  • Enables a Client to find OPC UA Servers within an enterprise.
  • Clients can search with a capability filter to lookup the appropriate Servers.
  • It will be common that a GDS also supplies global certificate and trust list management for the OPC UA application it manages.
  • One or more Global Discovery servers can be used to maintain discovery information of installed OPC UA applications.
  • Requires a commercial Global Discovery Server (GDS)

Conformance Testing

Client Server

Clients shall support the Conformance Unit Discovery Client Find Servers in GDS that is part of the Discovery Client Facet.
