Error Updating Event Frames using PI Web API

Hi everyone,


I developed and application that updates event frames using PI Web API.

Upon deployment I found this issue.

  • An admin user can update event frames.
  • A non/admin user cannot update event frames, even when this user is mapped to an identity with permission over the AF database where event frames are generated.

I receive this error, which indicates that the referenced element already exists, but I-m trying to update the event frame, not the element.


I-d appreciate any insights with this issue.

Thank you very much.
