Add Element path to AFUpdatePlugInConfigurations.exe
Currently, AFUpdatePlugInConfigurations.exe will update the Attribute configurations of an entire AF Database as specified in the /Root parameter. When dealing with large AF Databases where there were only a few changes made, this is an expensive call. Please modify the /Root parameter so we can specify which Element and whether Child Elements (/IncludeChildern) are included should be in scope of the update.
C:\Program Files\PIPC\AF\AFUpdatePluginConfigurations.exe "/Root:\AFServer\AFDatabase\ParentElement\ChildElement" /IncludeChildren /CreateConfig
If the “Create or Update Data Reference” feature in PI System Explorer is insufficient for your needs, please update this idea.
The CreateConfig option is the same as if you right-click the element in PI System Explorer and selecting Create or Update Data Reference. Is that something that would suit your needs?

These AF Attributes are configured for PI Points to be created or updated (CreateConfig).
What are you trying to update with the attributes? Are you using the utility to do a CreateConfig, Repair, or ReplacePIServer?
