  1. Ability to Write Values or Trigger Calc

    Coresight needs a way for users to send an event to pi or PI AF.
    The need ofr interaction with PI AF is really needed. There needs to be the ability to write values like System Explorer, and the ability to send basic data back to pi or AF.

  2. Swap context relative to AF hierarchy

    As a user of PI Coresight I want to be able to swap context at a parent (plant) level and propagate new context to child elements relative to the AF model hierarchy.
    Currently only information on the Coresight display part of the same element template are concerned by the swapping.

  3. URL parameters for displays with parent and children attributes

    When I use a URL parameter to change the parent, all of the children attributes on that display also change. I have a handful of element structures that are all the same. I want to make one dashboard and then use A URL parameter to reference the other parents that will automatically update all the other data with children of the newly selected parent.

  4. PI AF Nested Parent/Child Asset Search

    We noticed that if we created in PI AF a parent template with a nested a child template, and subsequently instantiated the nested parent/child template in a PI AF hierarchy, PI Coresight would only recognize the instantiated parent asset in a related asset search. For example, in PI AF we are creating a parent template for a reactor and are looking to nest a child template for a weigh scale that only applies to a subset of all reactors. We want PI Coresight to return in a related asset search all reactors and the weigh scale where applicable.

  5. Add a PI AF Attribute Synonym Field Button for Searches

    We would like to have a synonym field for an element’s attribute that is searchable through PI Coresight, analogous to how we could search for an attribute’s description. In the screenshot below, the rightmost button with the pencil allows us to search for an attribute’s description. Another button could be added to search for a PI AF Synonym. Synonyms for an element’s attribute could be created within PI AF and presented to PI Coresight. For example, we may want to equate the attribute “RPM” with “SPEED.”

  6. Support renaming of AF elements and attributes

    PI Vision does not support the renaming of AF elements or attributes or the movement of them within the hierarchy. After renaming or moving these objects, symbols referencing them will show No Data in PI Vision.

  7. Ability to edit some PI-AF properties from PI Coresight, i.e.: Light-weight PSE

    PSE is often used as a client-tool where it is not intended to be. It would be very beneficial to have a simple PSE tool just to view data. Browse Element Hierarchies and view Attributes, EventFrames.
    Just like PSE. The hierarchy could also make a small step towards a navigation hierarchy to navigate to Asset-relative displays.

  8. Add the ability for Coresight users with security access to be able to change attribute values directly in Coresight.

    Many times PI Administrators develop screens but are not the process specialists. The process user might see a "red" condition that is false and wants to quickly change the attribute limit (hi or lo) value so that it is no longer "Red". Rather than communicating to the PI Admin they should have the access to change it themselves without having PSE installed on their system. Saves a lot of time and work.

  9. AFTable data in Coresight

    Allow AFTable data to be used in a Coresight display symbol.

    Currently there is no way to navigate to AFTable instances in the navigation pane of Coresight. It would be useful to expose these object types and allow custom Coresight symbols to consume their data.

    It would also be beneficial to expose a function in the webServices service so that this data can be retrieved programmatically. Currently, this is only possible by directly querying the PI Web API for this data via an $http call.

  10. Hide data when attributes don't exist for dissimilar assets

    Assets and machines are never quite the same. Be able to swap the asset/element context (may be different template) and if the selected asset doesn't have certain data available on the display, don't show it on the display rather than an error message.

    This should apply to collections in addition to individual symbols.
