Can't export/import empty tag folder

Ignition 8.1.13

Weird use case, but…

  1. Create an empty tag folder named ‘PlaceHolder’
  2. Export just it to ‘PlaceHolder.json’
  3. Delete the tag folder.
  4. Import ‘PlaceHolder.json’
  5. The original folder ‘PlaceHolder’ is not recreated


Actually it looks like it imports the original folder under the UDT tab… which is probably “more wrong”.

Where was the focus in the tag tree when you began the import?

‘Tags’ tab active, right click top left area of of ‘Tag’ column.
