At the moment, if you have MQTT Engine connected to a device, and Ignition reference tags to reference the MQTT tags with history on, backfill data from MQTT doesn’t transfer to the reference tag if the connection to the MQTT device goes down.
If you enable history on the MQTT tag itself, then it backfills fine once connection to the MQTT device is re-established.
It would be great if this backfill data was transferred across to the tag(s) that reference it.
