If you want to edit your tags, you can do so through the web interface in Web Port or through external programs such as Libre Office, Open Office or Excel. The tags are stored as csv files in the directory /system/tags/.
By default, UTF-8 is used as character encoding and ; as a separator for columns.
Create tag list
Creating new files is easy! You can do it through the web interface, by copying the tags.csv file from the tag directory during installation, or by using the upload function. That way, you can add new tags to your list or replace existing ones.
Let tags.csv stay empty and use it as template for new tag lists.
Creating a new tag list with the web interface is easy. Simply go to the SYSTEM SETTINGS/TAGS page and click on the New tag list tool icon. Enter the name of the tag list in the dialog box, without the file extension. If you end the name of the tag list with an underscore (_), all the tags will automatically be linked to the IO device with the same name. Alternatively, you can also upload an existing tag list using the Upload tool icon.
Tap the three-tag icon to the left of the name of a tag list to directly open it in edit mode.
The table of existing tag lists shows available lists for the system and their states. The table's columns have the following meaning and possible values:
|Tag list name||FILE||OK||Last Modified|
Tag lists that are automatically generated from a DEVICE or SYSTEM cannot normally be changed. The States have the following meaning:
|OK||The list in Web Port is current|
|Unsaved changes||The list in Web Port has modifications that have not been saved to file.|
|Modified||The list has changed outside Web Port and needs to be re-loaded. This can be done either by clicking the tag list name and then Reload, or by clicking Settings/Reload in edit mode|
To save your changes to a tag list, simply click on the row associated with the tag list and select 'save' from the menu bar at the bottom of the window. You can also save your tag lists from the top menu. There are several different views for your tag lists available. The default view will show all of your tag lists. You can also choose to view all tags from the system in a single list, or just view the tags that have been blocked.
Divide your tag lists into different files, for example, per appliance cabinet, to easily find them.
Remove tag list
To remove a tag list, select 'Delete' and then confirm it by saying 'Yes'.
Download tag list
To download a copy of your tag list, just click the ‘Download’ button in the edit view.
