Can't find new tag added in plc

I have an existing PLC program. I have a tag provider correctly connecting all tags with this plc program. I went ahead and added a new tag in the PLC program. I went to add the tag within Ignition and I couldn’t find it by browsing for it however I am able to see every other tag in the plc program that was previously there. I also went ahead and added the tag path manually and it is still telling me there is an error.

Any ideas?

Hey @michael.black I have had this happen to me before. try disabling the PLC OPC client connection in the gateway and reconnect it. That worked every time for me. for some reason sometime the new tags are not being pulled in.
hope this helps.

You don’t need to disable, just open and save it to restart it and force it to rebrowse. Or I guess if you want to script it, then you would have to disable and enable

Thanks guys. I tried eveyrthing. I finally ended up just restarting the VM that I had ignition running on and the new tags showed up.
