  3. Prevent users from opening display if they don't have access to data

    If a user does not have access to any of the data items (tags/attributes) on a display, they should not be able to open that display.

  4. Set Permissions for Root folder "Home"

    As already implemented for subfolders, we would like to set permissions also on root folder "Home".

    Use Case: We would like to make sure that only creation of new displays in subfolders is possible and not in home folder.

  7. Allow anonymous authentication to PI Vision

    As a PI System Administrator, I want to allow read-only access to PI Vision for anonymous users so that my users do not need to log in on their mobile devices to view displays and data.

  8. Hide or Show AF Templates in PI Vision based on identities

    We have a TON of AF templates and not necessarily all of them will be used by our end users. It would be nice if there was a way to either view these templates by category or make them show/hide based on AF identities. Currently there is now way to hide a AF template in PI Vision without deleting it.

  10. Remove HTTPS Requirement

    Is there any way to make this run in HTTP mode only?  It seems to want to default to HTTPS, but there isn't any real way to make a certificate from an authority work since this isn't an internet-facing server.  Most browsers harbor an extreme distaste for self-signed certs.

    In general, the entire World Wide Web is moving away from HTTP to HTTPS for security. In fact, more and more websites only allow connections via HTTPS, which is also adopted as a standard by an increasing number of our customers. As OSIsoft is committed to delivering most security products to our customers, we are obliged to use HTTPS and to be rid of HTTP.

  14. Use WIS to allow database access to be set based on Active Directory

    PI Coresight 2016 allows 'Set Database Search Root' and 'Restrict Database Access' but is assignable only to individual users - too cumbersome to manage in a large system. Want to integrate with WIS so can use this to assign to previously defined AD groups (ex: based on user site/location) as this is how the PI access is assigned (AD group mapped to PI identity). Could potentially use the same functionality as the display group security which is based on AF identities.

  15. Support Multi-tenancy in PI Coresight

    Have Coresight support mutli-tenancy (possibly as Software as a Service, SaaS) so individual tenants of the application can't access each other's displays/data.

    In order to support multiple tenants, we need a way to isolate displays so that users can only see certain displays.

  16. After moving displays to a folder, the display owner should be able to maintain read-access

    Currently, after moving a display to a folder, a display owner will lose write permissions to the display if they do not have write permissions to the folder. It would be easier if display owners automatically had write permissions to displays even if they are moved to a new folder.

    If admins wish to control access to certain folders, it may be better to configure that as a setting for the folder (ie a setting where "Only folder permissions are considered for security to displays) or they can change the display owner.

    The behavior is by design, and I think, is intuitive and expected by most users. Take Windows operating system for example, if you create a file on your desktop, and move it to a folder to which you don’t have write access, you will lose write access to that file as well.

    On the other hand, the behavior you proposed would pose a security concern. Therefore, I have declined it.

  17. Add the ability to hide the domain of a logged-on user

    Provide administrators with the ability to hide or obscure the domain of users logged on to a Vision server (instead of domain\userID in the top right, it would just show userID).

    Creating on behalf of a customer, for who the Vision server is hosted on an internal network but accessed externally. They wish to hide the internal domain for users outside the network.

  18. PI Vision support for URL only display access

    Please create a way of sharing displays with users without having the display show up in "All Displays". Rather, the display should be private but only accessible through URL to a mapped group. This group could be PI World or a specific set of AF users.

  19. Custom symbol security AD aware?

    PI Vision's extensibility is a great feature to implement and extend Vision to more custom displays. Sometimes though, we don't want all users to be using some custom symbols. If there is a per symbol security for custom symbols in built instead of manual override in code will be great. Kenji has already done the majority of the work : https://pisquare.osisoft.com/community/developers-club/pi-visualization-development/blog/2016/07/21/how-to-customize-appearance-of-pi-coresight-2016#comment-9600.
