Client Permission Restrictions

Permission Type: Tag Editing

Client access to this scripting function is blocked to users that do not meet the role/zone requirements for the above permission type. This function is unaffected when run in the Gateway scope.


system.tag.editTags(tagPaths, attributes, parameters, accessRights, overrides, alarmList, alarmConfig[, provider][, json])

  • Parameters

    • String[] tagPaths - The full path to the Tag you want to edit. For members of UDT instances, the tagPath will be the path to the UDT instance, with the overrides parameter listing out the member Tags to edit.


      You can specify the Tag provider name in square brackets at the beginning of the parentPath string.

      For example, [myTagProvider]MyTagsFolder. If the Tag provider name is left off then the project default provider will be used.

    • PyDictionary attributes - The Tag's configuration attributes.

    • PyDictionary parameters - The parameters for a UDT instance Tag.

    • String accessRights - The access rights for a Tag. Possible values are Read_Only, Read_Write, and Custom.

    • PyDictionary overrides - All of the overrides for a UDT instance Tag.

    • String alarmList - List of legacy alarms for the Tag. The legacy alarm system was retired in 7.6.0, so the alarmConfig parameter should be utilized on newer versions.

    • PyDictionary alarmConfig - The alarm configuration for the Tag.

    • String provider - The name of the Tag provider, used in conjunction with the JSON argument. The default value is the default Tag provider. Optional

    • String json - The properties to edit on Tags, represented as a JSON object. When using this, it acts as a replacement for other parameters. Optional.
