This function is intended to insert new entries, e.g., backfilling of historical Events.
Setting performInsertReplace = INSERT_1 inserts entries into the Event history database for one or more HistoricalEventNodes. The whereClause parameter of the EventFilter shall be empty. The SelectClause shall as a minimum provide the following Event fields: EventType and Time. It is also recommended that the SourceNode and the SourceName fields are provided. If one of the required fields is not provided then the statusCode shall indicate Bad_ArgumentsMissing. If the historian does not support archiving the specified EventType then the statusCode shall indicate Bad_TypeDefinitionInvalid. If the SourceNode is not a valid source for Events then the related operationResults entry shall indicate Bad_SourceNodeIdInvalid. If the Time does not fall within range that can be stored then the related operationResults entry shall indicate Bad_OutOfRange. If the selectClause does not include fields which are mandatory for the EventType then the statusCode shall indicate Bad_ArgumentsMissing. If the selectClause specifies fields which are not valid for the EventType or cannot be saved by the historian then the related operationResults entry shall indicate Good_DataIgnored. Additional information about the ignored fields shall be provided through DiagnosticInformation related to the operationResults. The symbolicId contains the index of each ignored field separated with a space and the localizedText contains the symbolic names of the ignored fields.
The EventId is a Server generated opaque value and a Client cannot assume that it knows how to create valid EventIds. A Server shall be able to generate an appropriate default value for the EventId field. If a Client does specify the EventId in the selectClause and it matches an existing Event then the statusCode shall indicate Bad_EntryExists. A Client shall use a HistoryRead to discover any automatically generated EventIds.
If any errors occur while processing individual fields then the related operationResults entry shall indicate Bad_InvalidArgument and the invalid fields shall be indicated in the DiagnosticInformation related to the operationResults entry.
The IndexRange parameter of the SimpleAttributeOperand is not valid for insert operations and the StatusCode shall specify Bad_IndexRangeInvalid if one is specified.
A Client may instruct the Server to choose a suitable default value for a field by specifying a value of null. If the Server is not able to select a suitable default then the corresponding entry in the operationResults array for the affected Event shall be Bad_InvalidArgument.
