APM Analysis microapp reformatting the tag value

Seems like there is a recent change made to the Analysis microapp to reformat a tag value (e.g. a value of

1048576 is now shown as 1.05m). Digital Solar team needs the old format back. This needs to be configurable at the tenant level. See attached file for an example

    This is a quite significant change. I am surprised on the tenet side there was no option to display the true value.

    Quoted from Adam Wellskopf, hope this helps to understand the importance of this feature change.


    'OK - I’d say this functionality is vital to what we do – the inverter product is setup with fault and warning thresholds that trigger on precise values – we need to see the exact tag values over time – whether the number is large or small.  Losing accuracy of the large values when displayed will SEVERELY inhibit our investigations.  Almost every Smart Serve case that we investigate involves validating the customer’s claim by witnessing fault or warning behavior in APM, and then using the data to explain the behavior and develop a corrective action.  Without this level of precision, APM is much less useful to us, and certain use cases will be completely lost. 


    In order to see what is going on inside the inverter at any given time, the exact values in the status words, warning words, fault words, etc need to be known to translate that into each bit’s meaning in operation. 


    We also need the tag names to display completely.  We’re showing this to customers who ask why the tag legend doesn’t show completely.  In some of the templates, the tag names are very close, and when truncated they are identical aside from color. "

    Similar comments have come from the M&D Center. Bhanu is following up with APM Core.
