Why is the import tag not working?
the only way to get the tag working is to do a browse and then the tag works, importing does not work. Should I go to version 7.9, at least it worked, but my license is now version 8 for the new sites. Upgrading a software is always good, but the testers should earned their money.
Version 8 is not working, anyone can help on this, this is really something.
And BTW, after the browse, the OPC item path is exactly the same.
What? What does that mean, what is it that you did not understand about importing a tag?
I can modify the OPC Item path manually and this doesn’t work, but if I use the browse, the button at the end of the OPC Item Path and choose it (It is the same as what I typed before) and click commit, then OK, now the tag works, why?
Well, you are certainly a lucky person.
Version is 8.0.4 (b2019091612)
Also added two pictures, the first on is a manual OPC tag or imported tag, the second one, I just clicked on the browse button on the OPC Item Path to get the same tag, of course the screen is the same because it is the same tag. But now it works. I am not about to do this on 2000 tags for each sites.
Ok, so I have 9 sites to install.
The install is from a fresh copy of Ignition 8.0.4 (same .exe)
How do you explain that site one, the browser shows “OPC-UA”, and then on the second site it shows “OPC UA”, what will be the name used on my third install?
The only difference is the license number and of course the tag list.
This is a problem, yes I have a fix, but why is it different?
If you’re talking about the name of the OPC UA connection in the gateway the only possibility is that one site is an upgrade from 7.9 (or gwbk restore) or someone modified the the OPC UA connection name.
If you’re talking about what you name see in an OPC tag, then it depends if the tag came from an import or was created brand new or via drag-n-drop.
