I have a project where there are multiple areas in a warehouse each with their own PC and PLC. I have an Ignition project that would run on each PC. I am trying to find the best way of deploying this since the project is exactly the same for each area except each client would need to connect to a different PLC. I can create different devices on the gateway and then each project would be the same except the tags would each point to a different device. This method would be cumbersome when a change is required. I would have to make the change to each project or go through the “copy project - export tags - modify device in path - import tags” process all over again for each change. Is there a way to dynamically change the tag path? I could have an into screen where the user would select the area (or maybe this could be passed as a parameter somehow) which would define the tag paths. This way it would only be one “project” on the server.
Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.
