[BUG] Vision: How do I browse client tags in script? (unable to browse client tags)

Edit: using version 7.9.10 and 7.9.12

I’ve tried using system.tag.browseTags(...) to get a list of client tags within a subfolder, but it doesn’t like the parent path provider being [client].

How can I do this using this function, or otherwise?

Cheers!

system.tag.browse('[client]Something/SomeClientTag')

The browseTags() method was deprecated as of 8.0.

I’m using 7.9.10 at the moment and browsing the client tags doesn’t seem to work.

Edit: tried in 7.9.12 as well

In 7.9.10 I’m using this:

tags = system.tag.browseTags(tagPath = '[client]Styles/Colours/Device/*', recursive=1)
for tag in tags: print tag

and the print returns nothing.

Specifying a parentPath = '[client]Styles' instead yields this error:

Try a capital C in [Client].

Yep tried that as well, no luck :frowning:

Device… Devices…

I should have also mentioned that I tried just [Client]Styles as well with no results, but good catch

tags = system.tag.browseTags(tagPath = ‘Client/Styles/Colours/Devices/*’, recursive=1)
for tag in tags: print tag

Does something like this work for you? I’ve tried all sorts of different combinations but can’t get it working…

No, it doesn’t. I was replying to you from my phone.
When I came home, I tried and it doesn’t work.
It seems that it works only for regular OPC tags (which they have Tag provider), not for System and Client tags.

Are you testing this in Runtime?
The scope doesn’t exist in Designer.

Client tags, as the name implies, are only available for use in the Clients and have a Client scope. This means that their values are isolated to a Client runtime. Even though they are created in the Designer, each Client creates their own instances.

:scream: of course we are testing this in … Designer…
EDIT: I just remember… designer has its own client tags…:confused:

Hmm, I was testing in the Designer however I’ve just tried now in the client and getting the same thing:

tags = system.tag.browseTags(tagPath='[Client]*', recursive=1)
print tags
for tag in tags: print tag.name

Output:
array(com.inductiveautomation.ignition.common.script.builtin.ialabs.BrowseTag)
Note: no tag names appear.

It would seem that this is a bug?

Edit: I’ve just tried in v8 and it works.
