Removing Unused Tags in InduSoft Web Studio SCADA/HMI Software

InduSoft tags

Have you ever defined tags in your InduSoft Web Studio project database, but not used them in any screen or task worksheet?  Since your SCADA/HMI project has a limited number of available tags based on your product or license type, you may want to remove these unused tags to decrease your project’s tag count.  This function is especially popular when importing tags from drivers using the shared database.

In the home tab in the tags group, you can use the function called remove unused tags.   The development application automatically verifies your project.  If it finds unused tags, then it will list them in the remove unused tags dialog.

Determine which tags you want to remove, if any.

– If you want to remove all of the listed tags, click Remove.

– If you want to keep some of the listed tags, clear the Remove options for these tags and then click Remove.

Note: The listed tags may include some that are accessed during runtime using indirect syntax (e.g., GetTagValue(TagName) or @TagName, where the value of TagName is the name of an unused tag).

If you have any questions about this function, please do not hesitate to contact us for more assistance at
