  2. Zoom in on a trend under 1 second

    The trend zoom is good functionality to specify time range to show but we cannot select under one second, it means the maximum time range for a trend is 1 sec. Please enhance this zoom functionality to point under 1 second.

  3. We should be able to see both the PI tag a tag description on a PI Vision display.

    I am only able to toggle between the tag name and the tag description. I would like it if we had the tag on one axis and the description on the other axis like it is in ProcessBook.

  4. Display Scroll

    I often have very full display windows, leaving little room to add new trends. Why can't I scroll down like in Process Book to creak some space for the new trend?

  7. PI Vision Display Utility: allow changes to the PI AF hierarchy when migrating displays

    If we have AF content in a test AF environment, and then we build a PI Vision display on top of that in a test environment, we have a need to migrate the AF content to a different AF hierarchy in Production. The PI Vision Display Utility is clear in the Live Library documentation that this is not allowed at this time - you may only change AF server and/or the AF database name. We would like the ability to change AF hierarchy during a display migration as well.

  8. Give PI Vision the ability to set a display to be the default page

    Right now this can be only done through HTTP redirection and Osisoft does not officially support this as this can be handled by a third party resource

  9. Export PI Vision displays with the Vision full-path folder name that they belong to to a CSV file.

    As right now, there is a KB introduce how to list all the PI Vision display with it's Display Owner and Shared Identity
    and how to list PI Vision displays with the Vision folder name that they belong to using SQL.
    But the SQL could not get the folders full path(ParentFolder and ChillFolder), neither the path of Processbook displays shared in PI Vision.
    If there is a function that could list PI Vision displays
    information(Name, Owner, Sharing with, full-path folder) it would be a big help for users and administration.

  11. Need to see trends on display page beyond 30 days

    I need to see data going back further than just 1 month. Generally 1 month or 1 year at a minimum.

  12. Ability to add a display to favorites from within the display

    Right now, the ability to mark a page as a favorite must be done from the page directory/search. If you are linked to a page or just in a page and want to make it a favorite, you must go to the home page of vision, find that page in the directory, and mark it as favorite there. It would make sense to have an element in the title bar of a page to be able to mark it as a favorite while viewing the display.

  13. Check if source PI Data Archive/AF Server is a stored server reference in display utility

    When changing AF or PI Data Archive server names using PI Vision display utility, check if the source entries for the servers are stored server references for the displays. In case, I don't specify the correct source server name (FQDN vs hostname) or have misspelled or made a typo, it is clear that the Display Utility will not make changes to the displays.

  16. Retrieve all symbols used in a PI Vision display

    Would like the functionality to retrieve a list of all symbols used in each PI Vision display or across all displays in the Vision database. This function would be performed either within PI Vision, via the Display Utility or using a Script.

    Additionally, information on what Data Items (PI Points/Attributes) are used in each Vision Symbol could be included.

    Output could be saved as a report.

    Possible use cases:

    • Troubleshooting PI Vision displays
    • Minimizing the use of expensive symbols to improve performance.
    • Evaluating use of custom symbols. Identify those that are not used or only used once and see if…

  17. Login and Logout

    Why not give an option for login and log-off? It is weird that the application doesn't have these options available which is actually making developers to customize the product for their need which is cumbersome

  18. PI Vision Display Utility: Copy displays between PI Vision databases on the same machine

    The 2019 PI Vision Display Utility was changed so that displays from a PI Vision Server cannot be copied over to a different database on the same PI Vision Server. We keep a backup of the PI Vision SQL database on the same machine as PI Vision in case we need to restore a display from the database backup.

    To support this, we would like the ability to copy displays between different PI Vision databases on the same machine.

  19. New Hyperlink Modification - no asset context

    When a hyperlink is created, the "Set asset context" box should NOT be auto checked. When a new hyperlink is created and the user does not understand what this checkbox means, he or she has the potential to override other screens with whatever asset context is attached to the hyperlink.

  20. Overwrite a display in different folder

    In PI Vision - if I use the 'Save As' function to save a display from Folder A to Folder B and that display name already exists in the destination folder - I should be given the option to overwrite the target display if I am the owner of both displays. I think having the warning message 'display already exists' is helpful, however, I should be able to proceed with the overwrite/save.

    If want to stage an update to a display in a limited access folder before copying the update to a public folder I am unable to do so…
