A Specific Tag is Missing in the Interface

By default, tags that are not actively being monitored via sampling are hidden from the user interface. There may be cases where visibility is still desired though. Such cases would be:
  • A tag for a license server that no longer exists but reporting capability is still desired.
  • A tag for a FlexNet Publisher license server that is not being sampled, but instead is being populated via a debug log.
  • A tag for an Altium license server, which is solely populated via a log.
To ensure visibility for tags that fall under these conditions, use the setTagAccess configuration procedure. Tag access is defined in the licmon.swd/vovlmd/config.tcl file using the setTagAccess procedure. This procedure takes the following two arguments:
  • A single tag or a list of tags.
  • A single user name or a list of user names that are to be granted access to the tag being configured. The ADMIN keyword can be used to grant access to all configured administrators. The EVERYBODY keyword can be used to grant access to all users. This is the default behavior when the tag is being actively monitored via sampling.
# This is a fragment of vovAltair Monitord/config.tcl
setTagAccess IN_MGC "gupta sandeep mario"
setTagAccess IN_SNPS "gupta sandeep mario"
setTagAccess EU_MGC "franz javier"
setTagAccess EU_CDN "javier oliver"
setTagAccess "CN_MGC CN_SNPS" "wchen"

If visibility of a tag needs to be restored to all users, the procedure must be called with the EVERYBODY keyword.
