This is primarily aimed at bulk tag edits. We are currently using version 7.9.6. I’d like to begin development of a bulk tag editing feature that would allow users to search for tags based on certain attributes such as engineering units, tag names, etc. and make changes to the configuration. We would like to be able to easily ensure historical collection settings such as historical deadband, historical deadband mode, and historical scan classes, are all set per a standard for that class of tag.
system. tag.edittags would give us that option. But I see that that function is deprecated in 8.0; and a new function system.tag.configure is available. What would happen to my scripts if I used system.tag.edittag in 7.9 then I upgraded to 8.0 or 8.1; how will the upgrade handle the deprecated function calls?
Should I wait on development until after we have upgraded? Thanks all for your input.
