I have a Perspective project that has a lot (44k) tags gathered from several different OPC UA devices. There are 5 different Control/GuardLogix processors configured. Their configuration is shown below and is consistent with exception of the names, IP address, and slot.
We have found that when adding new tags to the processor that the new tags do not always show up in Designer’s tag tree. Perhaps we haven’t always waited long enough, but it doesn’t seem to happen in a reasonable amount of time. Restarting the Gateway or disabling/enabling the device connection will find the tags, but simply refreshing the tags in designer will not. As you can see we have the Automatic Rebrowse option selected. This problem seems somewhat intermittent and may be more problematic when downloading new programs to the processor where the tags were added offline instead of adding them while the processor was online, though I can’t say for sure that is 100% true all the time. I do know multiple people have reported the issue and I have seen it myself.
Are there any known issues with update time to detect new tags? Do tags (or updated UDTs in Logix) update differently if they were added while offline in the PLC and downloaded? We are using v32 of Logix and v8.0.10 in Perspective.
