Possibility to configure AF Prefix - PI System connector
For the PI System Connector it is possible to configure a prefix for PI Tags. We also need the possibility to configure a prefix for AF related items like Event Frame Attributes or tables.
We have started development work to include the ability to prefix AF Objects being sent by PI System Connector. We look forward to sharing more with you in early 2021 on the release of this feature.
The use-case is as follows. we use the System connector to connect local PI Systems to one global PI System. as the local PI Systems already exist, it's hard to harmonize all configuration objects (e.g. Event Frame templates). in case there exist different objects with the same Name (e.g. Event Frame template with Name "Batch"), the different templates influence the one template on the global System with this Name (i think the last connected template will be transfered to the global System). a prefix for AF objects would avoid this behaviour.
