  1. Align Child Event Frames by Name as opposed to Sequence Number

    When aligning event frames in the event comparison, it is requested that the event frames are aligned by the name of the child event frame being aligned to and not the sequence number.

    For example, if 'reaction' is the 4th child event frame, I would prefer that other event frames are aligned by their 'reaction' child event frame and not necessarily by their 4th child event frame. Sometimes event frames have addition children, breaking the alignment by the intended phase.

  2. Hide "Create Display" Button Option for Explorer

    e.g. AD Groups which should have only access on displays not on creating. At the moment all users have the ability to create displays allthough displays cant be saved.

  3. Check if source PI Data Archive/AF Server is a stored server reference in display utility

    When changing AF or PI Data Archive server names using PI Vision display utility, check if the source entries for the servers are stored server references for the displays. In case, I don't specify the correct source server name (FQDN vs hostname) or have misspelled or made a typo, it is clear that the Display Utility will not make changes to the displays.

  4. 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.

  5. The Security Configuration for Home

    It is needed to be able to set the security for Home, not just for each folder under Home. This is because each display can be properly organized with the security. Without it, let's say that a PI Vision admin does not want to allow each PI Vision user to save a new display into Home, but the admin wants to allow them to do it into a specific folder depending on which group the users belongs to. However, since Home does not have its own security, it is not possible. On the other hand, if a user is set…

  7. Allow installer to (optionally) bypass Certificate checks

    In nearly all installations in the last three years we have restrictions on the servers where we need to install the SSL certificates, that make it impossible to verify the validity (e.g. no access to revocation servers).
    The certificate is accepted by clients as those have different authorisations.

    I would like to optionally bypass the certificate checks in the PI Web API Configuration utility to allow using certificates that cannot be validated. This will save a lot of time to bypass the utility and manually remove and bind a certificate.

    This functionality is currently in development for the PI Vision 2020 release.

    On a clean install, the setup kit will create a self-signed certificate, and apply it to the target IIS web site where PI Vision is being installed. On upgrade, where the previous version already had a certificate set for the PI Vision site, that certificate is used for the new version’s PI Vision web site.

  8. Remove use of cookies for claims authentication

    PI Vision currently makes use of cookies for it's implementation of claims authentication. Google Chrome is phasing out third party cookies, as you can read here: https://www.bounteous.com/insights/2020/04/09/google-chrome-third-party-cookies

    This means that in the future third party cookies won't be supported by Chrome anymore, which will break PI Vision's claims authentication.

    As all major browser vendors will likely follow this path an alternative solution is needed.

  9. Allow DateTime columns to be sorted in chronological order

    Currently in the Table and Asset Comparison Table symbol, data in columns can be sorted in numerical or alphabetical order.

    For columns with timestamp format (e.g. DD/MM/YYYY), allow sorting of time stamps by the DateTime properly.

  10. Add PI Vision display option to show XY plot Regression line equation

    In PI Vision 2019, it is now possible to add a regression line to an XY plot (See: User Guide PI Vision 2019>XY Plot>Format data pairs for an XY plot) However there is no way to see the equation of this line.
    In PI ProcessBook it was possible to see the regression line's coefficients on hover.

  11. Possibility to add more than 2 most recent points to XY Plots for better analysis

    We would like the possibility of configuring more than 2 most recent points in XY plots to better understand the trend of equipment readings in the past. A better comparison can be made with recent points with different colors and more data in the graph.

  12. Add support for HTTP/2

    PI Vision currently uses only HTTP/1.1. Please add support for HTTP/2 so that PI Vision will load faster. This is especially important for mobile devices, which are generally already slower compared to desktop or laptop computers.

  13. 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…

  14. The option to shift the time context by a specified amount instead of just the time displayed

    Currently when pressing the left and right arrows in the time bar there is only the option of shifting to the immediately preceding or next interval specified by the duration in the time bar. Users would like to be able to maintain the interval length but have the option to specify how far to shift.

    For example, if a user is currently viewing a display over a time range from 8AM to 4PM of the current day, 8h specified in the time bar, then they would like to be able to press the left arrow and shift back 24 hours…

  15. 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…

  16. Retrieve all symbols used in a PI Vision display

    Would like the functionality to retrieve a list of all symbols used in each PI Vision display or across all displays in the Vision database. This function would be performed either within PI Vision, via the Display Utility or using a Script.

    Additionally, information on what Data Items (PI Points/Attributes) are used in each Vision Symbol could be included.

    Output could be saved as a report.

    Possible use cases:


    • Troubleshooting PI Vision displays

    • Minimizing the use of expensive symbols to improve performance.

    • Evaluating use of custom symbols. Identify those that are not used or only used once and see if…

  17. Acknowledge Event Frames in PI Vision Without Kerberos

    As a PI Vision administrator, it would be helpful for PI Vision Event acknowledgement and annotation to function without Kerberos delegation. This would allow the feature to work on cross domain environments where Kerberos may not be possible.

  20. PI Vision 12hr interval time range

    PI Vision default search time range, that are available (1h, 8h, 1d, 1w, 1mon) do not offer a 12 hour search option. As this is mining standard shift length, it would be very convenient and helpful to have the 12h time range option as default.
