  2. Ability to change which PI tag the PI Connector for OPC UA writes to without having recreate new PI tags

    Currently, once PI tags are created by the PI Connector for OPC UA the connector uses the point ID for its mapping from the OPC UA server to the PI tags. Thus, if a configuration change occurs on your OPC UA server (i.e. NodeIDs change) the only way to map the newly named (with no change in the data stream) NodeID to a PI tag is to create a new PI tag instead of simply changing the configuration on a PI tag. As a PI system administrator, I want the ability to change a PI tag attribute (i.e. Extended Descriptor)…

  3. Support PI tag renaming

    Tags created by a PI Connector can be renamed, but these renamed points can be "forgotten" if the Connector's point cache is lost. Updating the Tag Mapping configuration file can avoid this cache loss, but I would like to be able to rename Connector tags without updating this configuration file.

    We are working on this request. We plan to provide users the ability to pick their tag naming convention and not worry about managing a cache file.
