I have to rename dozens of tags every three months, keeping all other fields but two or three, and there is no more convenient way to do this job. Some find and replace does most of the work.
Hi Georg, have you tried using PI Builder, it is an add-in for Excel and it has same functionality as tag configuration plus some extra options. PI Builder is included in the installation of PI System Explorer . You can use this tool to rename the tags you are interested in.
it used to be, but with the current (2015) version it was discontinued :-(.
PI Builder has not been discontinued! We have replaced Tag Configurator with PI Builder starting with PI Data Archive 2015. PI Builder 2015 is in the AF Client 2015 Install Kit and there are instructions for installing PI Builder.
Let us know if you still have problems!
Let me know if all the features of Tag configurator are included in AF builder, since I am finding it difficult to fetch the attributes of 10,000 different tags in the excel in a single go.
Akhil, can you be more specific with what you are unable to do with PI Builder? If you are referring to the 100,000 point count limit (not sure, since you specified 10,000), this is a known limitation, and there is already an enhancement request which exists to address this: 119336.
