In addition to the Device Name from the connected system, Field Information Manager supports the optional import of a Mapping Table.
It can be used when the Device Name from system does not match user expectations and should be mapped to another Device Name, e.g. from another database.
The Mapping Table is a simple CSV file with the two columns "FOUND DEVICE NAME" and "DISPLAYED DEVICE NAME":
- FOUND DEVICE NAME: Device Name as received from system and displayed in Field Information Manager.
- DISPLAYED DEVICE NAME: Device Name that shall be displayed instead of FOUND DEVICE NAME.
Data of Mapping Table becomes active directly after import and is also used in all upcoming topology scans. It remains active until a new Mapping Table is imported.
