I encountered a problem today. Imported some tags via JSON to create a new sub-folder and tags. This all worked fine and tag values were updating.
As the new sub-folder had the same name as the parent folder, I renamed the sub-folder by adding “_Alarms” to the end of its name. However, when I expand the sub-folder, all of the tags have disappeared.
I tried to rename the folder back to the original name but when I press enter to input the sub-folder rename, the name goes back to “xxx_Alarms”. No errors are shown.
When I try and delete the sub-folder I get the error “Bad unknown”.
When I try and import via XML again it starts the import process and when it reaches the “Reading tags…” step the progress bar seems to be stuck. After a long time, I get a long list of errors including “Bad_Failure - tag already exists” and “Bad_NotFound - Parent tag not found”).
If I try and create a new sub-folder with the original name (e.g. PLC1) it creates a new folder but automatically renames it PLC2.
It’s like the original sub-folder still exists in the database, but is not being displayed on the tree view.
Any ideas on how to resolve? I don’t need to keep any history. I can delete tags, folders if required.
