Available Historical Tags not populating from MQTT Engine historical tags

I’m attempting my first tag historian report.
Using MQTT Distributor and Engine.

  • Dragging historical tag from tag browser to Available Historical Tags is disallowed.
  • Data is in the database and is accurate so I know the historian is working.
  • Following videos on how to perform Tag Historian Query have the Available Historical Tags already populated. I don’t understand why my available historical tags are not appearing.
  • My “InsightMySQL” database is listed, but no tags appear in the tree under this connection.
  • The “Sample_SQLite_Database” has tags listed under it.
  • Any help would be most appreciated.



I’d suggest taking a look at this page that describes caveats of setting up history on MQTT tags:
