Tag Import Error

Tag errors occurred during tag import Error_Exception(“Error importing tags: com.inductiveautomation.ignition.common.gson.stream.MalformedJsonException: Expected name at line 10 column 6 path $.tags[0].tagType”)

I am receiving this error when I try to import tags. I am trying to create memory tags from an exported json of opc tags. I attached the xml file of the tags I am trying to import.

test.xml (33.3 KB)

When I open this file in a plain text editor, I see a json file embedded in an Excel (xml) file. I’m guessing you exported the json, edited it in Excel, and exported it from there? Ignition isn’t going to be able to import that – Excel is pretty much only for viewing the tags, not editing.

The error message should point you right to the problem. Looks to me like you are missing a comma on line 67 (and also probably line 80)
