Using BDM to delete Log Configuration aspects and Trend Display aspects - 800xA
Please tell me how I can use BDM to delete Log Configuration aspects and to delete Trend Display aspects. I have searched and can only find how to delete a whole object, not just an aspect. I have been told you can do this, but am unable to find how. Using 800xA.
I've used the Bulk Import Tool to work with (add/delete) log configurations. Launch excel, then launch the BIT addin (C;/ProgramFilesx86/ABBIndustrialIT/InformIT/History/bin/InformITBulkImport).
Go to the AddIns tab,Bulk Import, Initialize sheet, drill down to desired application or Module (uncheck the "include all properties").
Update/Change log aspects as needed, then use "Update Log Aspects from Sheet" to load to system
Use caution if your using this tool on a live system, recommend to do one log first and make sure it adds or deletes properly before doing a bulk edit.
Trend Display im not sure, would probably use a normal BDM sheet for that but i havent done it.
The easiest method to delete Log Configuration aspects (or any other aspect) in bulk is to use the Find Tool in the Plant Explorer workplace.
Open Find Tool >> Check Radio Button for Aspects >> From Aspect Category Selection drop down list select 'Log Configuration' >> Click on Search
A list of all aspects belonging to the Log Configuration aspect category will be listed as shown below. Select the necessary aspects together.Right click on the selection and click on Delete option from the context menu.
