  1. Improve display loading performance

    Large displays can take 30 seconds or longer to load. Load times are particularly slow in Internet Explorer. Displays needs to load faster.

  2. PI Vision - "Internal Server Error"

    PI Vision "Internal Server Error" are not detailed enough to properly troubleshoot.
    As PI administrator, it would be great to have more granular and specific PI Vision "Internal Server Error" messages in order to get more insight as to what is going on.
    Our users have been experiencing intermittent "Internal Server Error", and we can not tell what the issue is either from the message log text neither when looking at the message logs level.
    If we have the ability to troubleshoot the root cause of the "Internal Server Error", we will be able to start looking at the problems…

  3. Hide trend scale range

    For digital tags or Enumeration AF attribute, do not want to see the scale or scale range, because these values is not relevant to my values.

  4. Mobile view for displays

    As users of PI Vision on cell phones, we think it would be very
    necessary to be able to design the same PI Vision display for being use in a PC and in a mobile environment. Then, when changes are made in a display, they will be applied in both design versions (PC and Mobile). Just as an example, Power Bi uses a very similar approach.

  5. Support AF Identities from Multiple Servers

    Currently, only 1 AF server is configured to provide identities for vision display security. Displays can show data from multiple AF servers, which could have different security mappings. It would be nice to be able to pull identities from multiple AF servers for display security that matches the AF security that already exists.

  6. Support Cross Domain authentication for PI Processbook to PI Vision 2019 Migration Utility

    On an architecture with Utility on a computer located on a different domain of the PI Vision server, the authentication fail.

    Could it be possible to prompt a login window (as for AF)

    Currently the migration utility will attempt to access PI Vision as the user who is currently logged into the machine. Could you please share more information about your use case and how would a login prompt be useful in this case? Does the user need to enter login credentials so that they can authenticate as a different user (a user other than the user currently logged into the machine)?

  7. Automate copying displays from one server to another

    As a PI Vision admin, I need the ability to automate copying displays from one PI Vision server to another while changing data sources in the process.

    We have one master site where displays are created and edited and many other sites that are re-using these displays. In doing this, we can templatize displays and ensure that the content is presented in a consistent way.

    Minor changes are made every day so this process needs to be automated, and local PI Vision servers also have local displays so the content is not identical, meaning we cannot simply copy the backend…

  9. Trend: Allow custom titles

    Allow specifying plot titles for trend symbols, similar to how ProcessBook allows specifying a plot name.

  10. Have dynamic links that are AF attributes redirect the current display instead of opening new tab

    Currently, a "dynamic" links on PI Vision displays are Asset Framework attributes using StringBuilder that are displayed using a value symbol. When the symbol is clicked, a new tab is opened.

    Having the display redirect in the same tab would be more ideal.

  12. Tree View / Structure in PI Vision - Not consistant with other products.

    Not a fan of the Asset Framework tree structure in PI Vision. It needs to work as a tree structure just like PI System Explorer. The setup in Vision is too clunky and is hard to navigate.

    Again, I would like to see the tree structure consistent in all products to mirror System Explorer.

  13. Dynamic representation of PctGood() function in PI Vision

    Looking for the ability to extract percentage good from “Min percent good” value calculated by Value Retrieval Methods analysis for a specified time range and link it to an AF Attribute to display the value in PI Vision. Value can then be recalculated dynamically depending on the time duration configured by the client (PI Vision). Analysis with PctGood() function does not allow ad-hoc time range manipulations by clients.

    Working example: End-user opens a PI Vision display with a fixed start time and end time (midnight to midnight) to visualise “Percent good” for a certain attribute. The quality of the archived…

  14. 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.

  15. Screen Ordering

    It would be ideal if the order of the screens could be configurable and static. Having the order change constantly based on last/recently viewed is not user-friendly.

  16. Add "Autorange" to graph scaling, just like in ProcessBook

    I need to be able to set the upper bound of my PI Vision graph range to the largest value on the graph, all while being able to set the lower bound to zero.

  17. Bulk Ownership Management - Homepage

    On the homepage, Be able to use Group selection not only to move displays, but also to change the owner of multiple screens at the same time in PiVision.

  18. Improved migration of arc symbol

    The arc symbol is migrated with the PI ProcessBook to PI Vision Migration Utility, however PI Vision does not support the same configuration options as PI ProcessBook, so in many cases arcs are not migrated well (PI Vision only supports 90 degree arcs). Improvements should be made so that arcs from PI ProcessBook can be migrated properly.

  19. Manage PI Vision Displays and Folders inside of PI System Explorer

    It would be helpful to be able to manage PI Vision Displays and Folders with the PI System Explorer application.

  20. Alert when not the owner (write access) of a display when entering "build mode"

    Often work has been done on a PI Vision display (with a known/published URL) only to realise you were not the owner when hitting the "save" button. A prompt when editing starts, or keeping the save button in the "inactive" state if not the display owner would help prevent this re-work.
