How can i get tag configuration of a single tag? I guess, the script function system.tag.browseConfiguration browses a folder or UDT path, not an individual tag. Will it give the configuration of a single atomic tag if I give the path os the single tag, instead of folder path parameter?
you have to use the tag path
config = system.tag.getConfiguration(path, False)
Thanks. I also thought as much. I will give it a try.
is the last line “system.tag.getConfiguration(path, False)” or “system.tag.browseConfiguration(path, False)”? There is no function called system.tag.getConfiguration(path, False)!
Also when I try browseConfiguration on a tag path, it gives error "AttributeError: ‘com.inductiveautomation.ignition.common.script.Imm’ object has no attribute ‘browseConfiguration’"!
Any help will be appreciated! Looks like to me, there is no function available in the scripts to get co figuration of individual tags , it’s only available for a folder or udt in recursive or non recursive way !
system.tag. getConfiguration (path, False) is only available in version 8. Maybe you are using an older version, so that function does not appear.
You might get more help on this topic if it was posted in a more appropriate category. This topic has nothing to do with the SDK.
Ok , got it. However in lower versions is there no way I can get the configuration of individual tags? That seems unlikely! I tried to see how to get TagConfiguration object for a given tag path, but could find a function to do that in 7.9version! Thanks a lot for the help so far.
I figured out that for lower versions we have to individually read the tag properties. There is no other way! Perhaps that’s why this function is deprecated in version 8 and a getConfiguration introduced which works at folder and tag level. So I will have to manage with what ever 7.9 provides. Hopefully same will work of higher versions as well, though I could have used the new function.
Out of the available topics for a new post,
Ignition 8 early access,
3rd Party Modules,
I thought module development to be appropriate. Perhaps Archived Topics would have been more appropriate! I will post it there as well if I am unable to find a solution with previous replies so far.
The Ignition category would have been the most appropriate. The main page of the forum has a paragraph describing what is appropriate in each category. This topic is about script functions in Ignition. Ergo, the Ignition category. I don’t get how you would pick Module Development.
