I am considering Ignition for a project I will be working on. One of my biggest issues is that if a tag is renamed or moved, the trend data associated with that point gets orphaned in the database. It has been recommended that I name things generic enough so that I don’t need to rename or move them, but its likely it might happen at some point. How are people dealing with this? I’ve thought of writing some code that searches for orphaned trend data, and reassigns if it needed, however I know this isn’t bullet proof.
I can see both sides of the story when a point is renamed or moved, but having the option to keep or orphan the data would be nice.
