I have a customer who is upgrading from an FxBias interface to WW historian connector. They have an existing tag naming convention, as well as many Excel spreadsheets and PI Datalink functions that already use tag names. They are considering moving to the WW historian connector but will need a reliable and supported way of maintaining the existing tag names rather than using the connector naming convention, in KB01871 it is mentioned that "PI Point Mapping Availability for reusing current PI points is yes for connector" is that possible in the WW historian connector? or is there alternative way to utilize existing names with WW connector?
