I was having an issue where my tags were going stale if I tried to view them in a remote instance of a designer or client… but this wasn’t the case for working on the local machine. This was on a gateway upgraded to the consumer release Ignition 8 after using many different nightly builds, that were an original upgrade from 7.9.
I carried out the following steps and it has fixed it. Steps 6 and 7 might be unneeded but I did it anyway.
- Backup gateway
- Uninstall Ignition 8
- Install Ignition 8
- Restore gateway
- Uninstall designer launcher on remote machine
- Reinstall designer launcher on remote machine
- Launch designer
- Open project
Hope this helps someone else too.
