How to handle OPC UA tags where Data type is 'java.lang.object'


What would be the correct way to add tags into ignition when the the OPC tag is a datatype = ‘java.lang.object’?

From my understanding you cannot add an OPC tag under another OPC tag in Ignition.

There’s really no way to add structured tags right now. You have to add the member tags that appear underneath it instead.

Sorry for late reply but appreciate the update Kevin

It so happens it was decided we did not need the Server folder from OPC provider. So it worked out; however, it is good to know about support of structured tags


You may want to try setting the tag type to array or data set. I had a tag that outputted that. If you create the tag manually that is.
