Build scada system without knowing tagnames ahead of time

Is it possible to build an Ignition project before the actual MQTT tag names are known? If so, how could this be accomplished? Indirect tag bindings?

Will you be able to impose some naming standards on the future real tags? If no, you are kind of [expletive]. If yes, then you can create UDTs with memory tags and set them up in a structure that roughly corresponds to what you expect from the MQTT devices. The key being final names within the UDTs so that you can start designing views/templates with indirect bindings.

If necessary, you can write gateway timer scripts that can drive the memory tags to simulate the real devices.

When real devices come online, you then point your views/templates at the real tag folder.

That’s what i thought. Thank you very much for reply.
