Alert won't go away

I created an alert tag and then changed the name of it in Ignition version 7.3. The alert was active when I changed the name. Now the system shows an alert with the old name that will not go away.

A workaround was to recreate the alert with the same name and then make sure the alert is not active and then delete the SQL tag.

Right, we hold that alert in memory. If you simply restart Ignition (the windows service) that alert will go away.

Renaming should have sent out a “de-register” message, similar to what happens when you delete. It’s possible that something unusual happened, or that the rename isn’t correctly sending it. I’ll look into that.
