Intended Scope of BrowseName

Post by kurt »

Hi Support Team,

what is the intended scope for the BrowseName? Has it to be globally unique within the namespace like a NodeId or should it be only unique relative to its parent node?

Best regards
Kurt

The BrowseName is not unique within the server or namespace.
The BrowseName is unique relative to its parent node in most of the cases.
All Nodes referenced with hierarchical references within an ObjectType node or an InstanceDeclaration node have unique browse names in the context of that node.

In theory you could have an instance of an Object having multiple children with the same browse names.
