Allow filtering of source points
In the HabConnect Connector the only filtering of source composite ID's for inclusion into PI is through use of wildcards. As a user I want to filter not at the query level to sampler, rather filter out tags in the result set (preferably using regex) that are to be included to PI.
The current mechanism can be tremendously wasteful in configuration time, tending towards error, and impact system resources. For example, using a record type, say DEVICE, you want only specific substations, you have to create multiple queries for each specific substation. If you need to monitor a dozen substations, you create a dozen substations. If you monitor them all, you have a simple query but create tens of thousands of tags that are unneeded, require system resources.
This doesn't sound like a burden, but config files can become unruly, exceeding 2k lines, and multiple dozens of queries. The old interface only pulled what tags were created, so filtering could be done on tag creation. As the connector now wants to participate in the tag creation process, it needs to consider these use cases. The only alternative is to turn synchronization off, and at that point this makes the connector a like for like replacement of the interface.
