Edge Node Rebirth Tag

Can someone speak to the Rebirth tag under the Node Control folder for an Edge Node device?
Is it to help with troubleshooting?


It is rare to ever need to use the Rebirth tag in MQTT Engine. But yes, it can be used for debugging. These are some times it can be useful:

  • You know new tags have been added to an Edge Node, this can be used to ‘discover’ the new tags and have them appear in MQTT Engine. But, often the Transmission side ‘Refresh’ tag would be used instead.
  • MQTT Engine is not configured with primary host and has been restarted. However, we’d generally recommend using primary host instead.
  • You want to refresh the tag properties in the Engine tags based on the tag properties at the Edge.
