  1. Need for Asset Type and Asset Category in Edit Collection Criteria to rely on one another

    When using Edit Collection Criteria we would like for the Asset Category to rely on the Asset Type and Vice Versa. For example, when selecting an Asset Type only the Categories that are apart of that Asset Type would be displayed.

  3. Search suggestions, more keywords

    Please make the Search more user friendly and responsive. You shouldn't have to enter it exactly as it is in order for it to show up after searching. More keywords or add search suggestions.

  5. AI assistant (Siri-like functionality)

    Enable visualization tools to make best guess answers to questions\searches such as:

    -When is the last time pump 78 of the west area was off?
    -What is the highest top pressure for reactor 102 during the last year?
    -What is the highest shell side temperature for ST103 this month?
    -How many times was the valve on the distillation tower 7 boiler bleed opened last week?

    I realize the answers may be indeterminate if questions not specific enough but this would be acceptable as long as we are clear on what answer is given. Users are accustomed to google searches with…

  6. Set individual database update interval for PI Web API Search Crawler

    Currently the update interval is set on a global level. 

    If a user has an extremely large database, it would be nice to set that large database's update interval individually.  That way increasing the Update Interval doesn't affect all databases.  Especially is other databases are updated much more rapidly.

  7. Add some options to the "Edit Search Criteria" in PI Vision

    Add some options to the "Edit Search Criteria" in PI Vision:
    The first option would be in the asset type filed. When searching according to the value of asset attributes, the customer would like to be able to specify the realtion between the selected conditions (OR / AND).
    Secondly, rather than searching by attribute values (which could be not accessible to certain users), the customer suggest also adding the attribute category. So, you can search for assets according to the attribute categories.

  8. PI Vision (Search crawler) configuration option to automatically index new AF database.

    Request for a feature in PI Vision (search crawler) to automatically index new AF databases for a given AF Server. This allows for a seamless process between building out AF hierarchy and being able to visualize the data in PI Vision. Currently   users (database architects whom may not have PI Vision admin access) must wait for PIVision (or WebAPI) admin to add the database for indexing.

  9. Have search for tag name return associated attributes

    When searching for tag names (e.g., TI202), only the tag is returned. It would be helpful if any AF attributes that use it as their data reference were returned as well (e.g., BOILOFF GAS TEMP).

  10. Non-silent treatment of spaces in keywords

    Currently, PI Vision silently removes spaces in keywords, effectively creating a single word that is usually not an actual word (e.g. "carbondioxide"). Instead of making changes without the user's knowledge, consider any of the following when the user tries to save a display with spaces in its keywords:
    • Allow spaces in keywords.
    • Tell the user that the space is invalid and let them change the keyword themselves.
    • Present the user with some options to resolve the space: "Have PI Vision remove spaces", "Have PI Vision create multiple keywords", or "I will fix it myself".

  12. Search by Keywords

    Dear Devs.
    At the moment the use of keywords is limited to the 'Filter by Keywords' balloon menu where more common keywords appear larger.

    it would be helpful if you could perform a search on keywords. This would make keywords valuable as users could search (not just by display name) but by a keyword which would narrow the keywords balloon menu. This may be valuable when the system becomes inundated with many keywords.

    Cheers.

  14. Support logical operators (AND, OR, NOT) in PI Vision searches

    Searching for data items by search string in PI Vision can tend to return a large number of results, making it difficult to find the tags and attributes to add to displays. Currently, PI Vision does not support using logical operators (like AND, OR and NOT) to refine the search criteria.

  16. Search for attributes by value

    Add the ability to search by an attribute's or PI Point's value, not only configuration data. Value searching should work for all types of values: float, integer, string or enumeration value.

    Note: This was previously Enhancement 109138.

  17. End Users can set their own default AF path

    The ability for an end user to set their own AF path within the Asset/Data Search Palette so that this path is the default 'scope' shown when browsing and for any searches on assets and data items.

    This is useful for companies that have large AF hierarchies but a user just wants a view of what their responsibilities are for. (if they search for a Tank, they don't want 20K tanks returned).

    One way to do this might be to 'pin' a AF path in the tree.

  18. Enable a user to specify attributes they care about

    User Story: Only show me asset attributes that I care about: As a process engineer, I only want to see asset attributes that I care about SO THAT I don’t have to sift through a bunch of all attributes that aren’t typically useful to me.

  19. Allow to display the search results by table pages or in a combo box

    For some user, it is easier to use a list with a scroll bar instead of clicking to change pages

  20. See data item value in search pane

    Have a way to show the tag/attribute values in the data search palette. This could be to see the values in the palette or potentially on selection or mouse hover tooltip.
