Trigger PE tag for event based as well as clock based

We have PE tags which are currently triggered as event based. Client has requirement that there tags should also store value at 12:00 AM daily. So we have to develop PE tags which are updating data as event triggered and also on 12 AM of everyday, i.e., clock scheduling .

  1. How can we do this in PE tags?
  2. Can PE tag be triggered based on two i/p tags?


One solution we found is to use AF Analyses:

Convert this PE tag, for example A, into analyses which is based on trigger tag B and create one clock based analyses B' which changes value at 12 AM. Analyses logic of A will be modified to check B' has been changed or B and go accordingly after that.


Like IsTrigger function in PI ACE, do we have similar one in PE or Analyses that shows which tag triggered the calculation?


If any other solution can be possible, then please let us know .
