This function is always returning True, no matter what is the inserted address.
Would you mind providing the script in which you’re making this call? I just tried on a build from Tuesday and I encountered no issue with the method.
if I simply try from script console:
I get True (of course that tag is not defined). Same thing in a gateway script.
Interesting. I’ve opened an internal ticket to address the issue.
Did you encounter this anywhere else? My component scripts didn’t encounter the issue, but as soon as I tried the script console I did indeed encounter it.
This issue was fixed in the build that was uploaded on 12/14. Please let us know if you continue to see this behavior after upgrading.
I am currently using the 8.0.3 release.
I notice that if I run the function system.tag.exists(’[notexisting]’) the result is True!
I mean the return value is always True if I search for a not existing Tag Provider.
Dears, any update on this topic?
There was some nuance in quality codes introduced in 8.0; I’ve just put in a fix that you should see in the nightlies soon, as well as the next release.
I am still seeing this issue on Ignition 8.0.14 when using a remote tag provider.
