Display Utility options for duplicate displays
I would like the PI Vision Display Utility to give me a warning and options if I try to move displays to a target database that has existing displays with the same names. This would avoid unintentionally creating duplicate displays with the same name.
It might also be useful if the tool gave me options in this case such as:
1) Acknowledge the warning and create the duplicate displays
2) Rename the new displays before adding them to the target database so that they are no longer duplicate names
3) Overwrite the existing target database's displays with the new displays and keep the original target display's DisplayID.
These options would be of particular importance in an environment like ours, where development work is done on one Vision server, and the finalized results promoted to a separate, more heavily-protected Vision server, intended for "official" reports and displays that must be protected from accidental or unauthorized modification. Currently, attempting to modify an existing page in the "dev" server then promote it to the "prod" server results in duplicate displays with identical names.
In the interim, a SQL script to re-name or re-number displays would be helpful.
