  1. apply event time range to pi vision display to show time before and after event.

    We have events of short duration and often use the "apply time range" option from the events table or events search in Pi Vision. We then have to manually adjust the time frame in PI Vision to be able to see a wider time range and understand what happened before the event. It would be really useful to be able to have a configurable time frame that PI Vision uses to show x minutes before and x minutes after the event when using "apply time range".

    This functionality would also be useful on the event event details page.

  2. Minify PI Vision's HTML, CSS, and JavaScript code

    The code for PI Vision's web pages is currently not minified. Please minify it so that the pages load faster, especially on mobile devices, and so that the network traffic is reduced.

    To be clear, to avoid the extra processing time of a separate minification step, the generated code should be minified to begin with. That is, minification should not be a separate step.

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. Bulk load of data via PI-ML

    Within the PI-ML thick client it is possible to do a bulk load of data entry via an Excel Sheet. Within the web version of PI-ML this is not possible yet. We would like to see if it is possible to bulkloading of data also via PI-ML webversion.

  8. Give PI Vision the ability to set a display to be the default page

    Right now this can be only done through HTTP redirection and Osisoft does not officially support this as this can be handled by a third party resource

  10. Multiple time ranges per trend

    Hello, I would like to raise a requirement for PI Vision which is especially interesting since the release of PI Vision 2020.

    Now time ranges for trends can be independent of the global display time range.However I would rather be able to show multiple different time ranges per trend. So basically it should be possible to change the time range the same way as it is now done within PI Vision 2020 per trend but rather per trend line / data source.

    I would highly appreciate to see this feature within PI Vision 2021.

  11. Have the ability to left align charts on the Y axis rather than than the object edge

    When putting scale labels outside the chart and left aligning the charts the axis does not line up if the labels are significantly different in significant digits.

    This is especially obvious in collections.

  13. 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…

  14. Open Link in new Tab / Window

    Like on any other website, you should be able to right-click on a hyperlink and get the normal browser properties, like:
    - Open Link in new...
    - Copy Link

    This gives you flexibility in opening new tabs or windows that may not be the default function of the Navigation Link.

    Worse, the current right click options are 'modify' options, which, in my opinion is bad form - modify options should only be available in 'build' mode. The the point of having build and run mode (yeah, i know it's not called that anymore but i'm old).

  15. 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…

  16. 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.

  17. Be able to more seamlessly asset switch on both Parent and Child elements

    It would be helpful to be able to be able to "double asset switch" by controlling both the parent and child elements that you are viewing.

    For instance, let's say we have Line1 with Tank1 and Tank2 and Line2 with TankA and TankB. If I wanted to include information on the display related to both the Line and the Tank elements, it would be helpful to be able to better filter to specifically see the Tanks that are part of Line1 and Line2 (this can currently be done, but not very smoothly if the child elements are not named as…

  18. support querying by pipoint attributes

    As a user, with points in different pointsources, I would like to use PI Point Query Syntax to specify a specific point source.

    Since Vision 2020 is now using AFSDK instead of crawler, the search text box should allow ability to search by any query syntax permitted.

    Without this capability, users will drag historical tags onto the screen, and then wonder why the tag is failing to update, or is "Scan-Off".

    In the absence of this capability, when a single tag is selected in the search result, the ability to right click to context menu (or displaying this information in…
