Have list of instrument tags(around 10 numbers). Wish to get tags for these instrument tags from PI using either PI datalink or PI Tag configurator or PI Builder. Could you pls help me?
By "instrument tag", do you mean PI point name or tag name? There is also a point attribute called "instrumenttag" but its slower to search on compared to tag name. It sounds to me that you are asking to perform a simple tag search based on name.
My understanding is you have 10 source tag and trying to find the destined PI tags.
As Rick mentioned you have to use these instrument tag names in the tag search window under "ïnstrumenttag" attribute and search.
Let us know if this is what you are looking for.
I just want to add to Rick Davin and Shibumon s reponse that if you want to search the PI tag name using Instrument tag name you cannot search in a bulk using Datalink/PI Builder and PI SMT. You need to search for it individually.
On the other hand you can use other options like PI SQL Commander to get result for more number of instrument tags, sample query given below,
SELECT tag,pointsource,instrumenttag FROM [pipoint].[pipoint]
WHERE instrumenttag in ('instrumenttag1','instrumenttag2','instrumenttag3'.....'instrumenttag10')
If you had more points to do this for, you could also simply import your file with the list of instrumenttag, then use PowerShell Get-PIPoint in a foreach loop adding a -whereclause on the InstrumentTag
