Siemens S7-1200 tags in Ignition Edge

Hello, Im currently doing a project of trying to create an HMI that can be connected and send data to the cloud. Im trying to the project in one of my universities pressure process control trainer and it uses siemens S7-1200 PLC. I am also using Opto 22's Groov EPIC PAC to do this. I already tried connecting the PLC with the groov via ignition edge however it only shows the dianostics of the plc but not the tags. I saw in some the forum page, and i read some forum pages that said that I need to manually configure the tags. Can someone further elaborate on this? Note: I will be using groov view to make the HMI and sync the tags there via the OPC UA ignition edge server.

Thank you!

Got two options with Siemens, either activate the OPC Server on the PLC, and use the Ignition OPC connection, this should then let you use the tag naming to bring over the tags.

Or options 2, use the Siemens s7-1200 PLC driver, you'll then need to manually add the tags based on the offsets in a global DB, reference the document to see hwo to do this:
