I am thinking taking element/from template on central server to local server without template ..just stand alone element (so don't have to manage templates at local sites). I will need to remap some tags. Does this make sense?
If it makes sense to you, it makes sense.
One approach for mapping PI tags more flexibly is to use a table lookup for all PI Points used in a model. Example: Mapping PI Point Attributes Using AF Table Lookup > 10,000 Tags?
I think you're telling us you have a centralized AF where templates have been built for the equipment of interest.
You would like to deploy the same type of asset to a local site on its own local AF server, but without the template.
Can you explain what the benefit would be of leaving the template behind?
It seems like it would be possible to accomplish this via an import/export in PI Builder and clearing the template column before exporting to the local AF.
