Points using old name after renaming them?

  • Hello,

    I am new to Mango and I am really impressed. I bought the license just yesterday, one day after installing. Here is my first question.

    I have setup a data source with some points called 'HKO - Current Weather'.
    Later I renamed the same to simply 'HKO'.

    When I look at the Point Hierarchy, they still show up with the old name. Is there way to change this? I am just trying to find out the small details before setting up a system with hundreds of data points.

  • Hi Alex,

    Thanks for the note and I'm glad you are getting started with Mango. Can you try clearing your browser cache and see if that resolves the issue.


  • Another thing that may be confusing is there are two parts to the name the first part (before the - ) is the Device name which takes the name of the data source by default. The second part is the name of the data point. If you look at the point setting on the point details page you can set the device name and the point name.

    Hope that helps,


  • Hi Joel

    Thanks for the reply. Clearing the browser cache didn't solve the problem.

    I am able to rename the data points and in the hierarchy I can see the changes.
    But the device name, or the name of the data source, stays the same in the hierarchy, no matter what I change it to in Data Sources.

    (I am editing this name under HTTP Retriever properties)


  • Click on the point details icon on the far left of the top menu. Then click on the "edit data point" icon and you will see the option to change the device name. In our next release we have combined all these setting into one place to make it much easier to find.
