Why can't I execute system.tag.browseConfiguration

My code is from Version 7.9.
Now I have the license for version 8.0, why can’t I use system.tag.browseConfiguration?

AttributeError: ‘com.inductiveautomation.ignition.designer.gui.tool’ object has no attribute ‘browseConfiguration’

Hmm. This function doesn’t exist in Ignition 8. I thought we had bridged all the legacy tag function to their new equivalents (and then deprecated/hidden them), but this one appears to have been deleted all together.

I’ll ask around to see if this was intentional or an oversight. It may have been not possible to adapt this function to the new tag system, but I don’t know for sure.

So my help page is stuck with 7.9.x, just changed it to 8.0 and used the browse function with a little tweak. and things are running good.


Yeah, system.tag.browseConfiguration was the only system.tag function dropped entirely for Ignition 8. It has been replaced by system.tag.getConfiguration
