I meticulously populated a new project OPC server (KEP) with tag scaling, descriptions (Documentation), Eng Units, Access Mode (RO/RW), and Clamp Mode data. This represents a ton of work (1800+ tags) done in a spreadsheet that I expected to do only once, so it was worth it.
On to creating SQLTags using the OPC browser drag and drop method. Since the OPC server already scales the tags, I didn’t care that Ignition did not import scaling metadata. I cared GREATLY that it did not pick up any of the other metadata listed above during the procedure. The only recourse is another protracted round of spreadsheet import/export??? AAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!
