Last Modified: August 30, 2021

Add a new point name pattern to make the name of InsightCM data points match the name of historian points in your historian software.

  1. Click the Navigation menu »System»Historian.
  2. On the Point Mappings tab, click Add.
  3. Enter static text and tokens you want the web application to replace with dynamic information about the tag.
  4. Select the asset type to which you want to apply the pattern.

    Verify that the web application successfully applied point name patterns by checking the historian point names on the Point Mappings tab.

List of Tokens that Insert Dynamic Information in Point Names

Use tokens as you configure InsightCM's data point naming conventions to match your OSIsoft PI system.

The following list contains tokens you can include in point name patterns.

Surround each token with curly braces, as shown.


Asset name values are static within PI point and source names. If you change the name of an asset, PI point and source names do not reflect the change.

Token Description
{name} Asset name
{path} Asset path including all parent assets
{feat} Feature or spectral band name1
{unit} Units of the feature or spectral band
1You can replace the names of features and spectral bands in the InsightCM Server with custom names.

Refer to Point Name Patterns and Defining Custom Feature Names for examples of using these tokens.
