  1. Remove requirement for SQL setting 'disallow results from triggers' to be set to 0

    When 'disallow results from triggers option' SQL feature is enabled and set to 1 on the SQL serverwhere the PI Vision database is hosted, PI Vision displays cannot be saved resulting in error:

    "A trigger returned a resultset and the server option 'disallow results from triggers' is true"

    Existing versions of PI Vision do not support this feature to be enabled and must be set to 0 for a proper functioning of PI Vision saving displays capabilities.
    However, this SQL feature is reportedly recommend to be set to 1 by Microsoft and it is mandatory for some customers to have…

  2. 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…

  4. Display Utility: Support adding prefix to PI tag names when copying displays

    The PI Vision Display Utility allows modifying the PI or AF Server/Database when copying displays from on PI Vision server to another, but it does not support modifying PI tag names.

    We are syncing tags between environments and using prefixes to denote the environment. The PI Vision Display Utility does not support this scenario currently, since both the point ID and the tag name are different in the other environment, the tags cannot be resolved after displays are copied.

  7. Ability to remove graphics from Graphic Library

    As a PI Vision admin, I would like to be able to remove graphics/images from the graphic symbol library so that I can ensure that display creators are only using approved graphics in order to standardize the look of displays.

  8. View users connected to PI Vision

    PI Vision administrators should be able to see who is actively connected to PI Vision, similar to the way Network Manager Statistics in SMT shows all active connections to the PI Data Archive.

  9. Create digital state set tables in Vision

    Ability to create digital state tables (table exposing digital states for a set) that lists all available statuses for a set. This would help users who do not have access to SMT know the correct names for each state set and the available states.

  11. As an administrator, I would like to impersonate users so that I can easily see what they see while troubleshooting issues

    -our users have various permissions for displays, data, and PI Vision folders
    - no need to have user at their desk to help troubleshoot a reported issue
    - test security and permissions easily during upgrades without various users present
    - be able to turn feature on/off (desirable: capture that in an audit trail)

  12. New access level to restrict display sharing

    We need a new access level with below privileges:
    - Read shared displays
    - Create & save displays
    - No access to share displays with others
    Most users in Vision like to explore and save their displays. Only access level for that is Publisher. However that also means all publishers can share their displays with the World.
    We need a new access level which allows users to explore and save their own displays, but ensures only approved displays are shared with everyone.

  13. Change asset displayed depending on which user is logged in

    I have an AF model whose first element layer is composed of various Plant Elements: Plant A, Plant B, Plant C, etc. On each of those Elements, the security is configured so that users in a plant-specific domain group only have access to that element: PlantAUsers, PlantBUsers, PlantCUsers.

    If I log on as a user who only has access to Plant B and opened the display, all of the symbols in the display still showed attribute path from Plant A, but the data fields showed No Data. I am able to pick Plant B (and only Plant B) from the…

  17. Change Time Range Defaults

    Add custom time range defaults. Shifts at my organization are 12 hours, I would like to allow my users to be able to select 12 hours without having to type in the timestamps manually.  (As opposed to or in addition to 1h, 8h, 1d etc.)

  19. Have the ability to set Preferences / Default configuration options

    Like in PI ProcessBook you could use the Preferences section to set the default configuration options, you need a way to set it in PI Coresight.

    Maybe that could be part of the Administration page. There is a need to have the ability to set the default Trend symbol trace colors, default coloring of other symbols, default time bar time ranges (we should have the ability to define what choices we want to see as a company in the time bar selector), etc.
