  3. Search engine

    The search engine in PI Coresight is (to put it politely) very, very poor. put simply, the word search just does not work.

  4. Support Installation on Windows Nano Server

    Support installation on Windows Nano Server.  Nano Server is the latest OS that is optimized around private clouds and data centers. 

    It has a much smaller footprint from Windows Server Core and is "headless" which means that there is no GUI or local login capability.

  8. Have ProcessBook and Coresight exhibit same behavior for imported ProcessBook Displays

    In an imported ProcessBook display, I would like to see the same behavior in Coresight and in ProcessBook regarding changing the time context. In short, we want the value displayed to be based on the End Time of the display. We see this in ProcessBook, but not in Coresight.

    Let’s say we have a ProcessBook PDI file that has a trend with a default span of 7 days. This PDI is viewed both in ProcessBook and via Coresight.
     
    On that trend we have pi tags that are getting updated frequently. Above the trend we text that displays the address…

  9. Color in multistate color pallette default choices matching the display background

    When building a element-relative display in ProcessBook, we often use a rectangular shape and set a mutli-state behavior to show or hide information on an element's attribute(s) based on whether it is excluded or not.  The color of the shape when something is excluded is the color of the display background - which is easy to manage.

    When doing same in Coresight 2016 R2 - the color of the display background is not available in the multistate color palette default choices.  While we now also have an option to create a custom color- the process is very hard to use…

  11. Multistate Line Styles

    Have the ability to change a line style from solid to dashed based on a multistate value. I have multistate lines that change color but changing the line style from solid to dashed would be a valuable feature.

  13. Apply a time range that includes both the parent and child event frame

    Right-clicking either the parent or child event frame provides the option to "Apply Time Range" (attachment).  When selected, the time range then shifts to match the parent or child event.

    In cases where the child event can occur before the parent event, the ability to select a time range that encompasses both the parent and child event can be valuable.

  14. Manual data entry to a PI Tag with validation for future data

    Manual data entry to a PI Tag with validation for future data. We want to implement a 'No Touch' policy for a start/end time (duration) where power plants cannot go for maintenance due to peak load requirements. While Excel and Manual Data Logger, SMT/AF comes to mind, it would be great if Coresight becomes the source for the data entry. More clean, validation (ensure end data is in the future) and one URL instead of multiple files floating around for a team authorized to enter this data.

  15. Allow Asset swap in kiosk mode

    In kiosk mode, the asset list swap drop-down menu disappears. There is a desired functionality to have the asset swap still visible and usable in kiosk mode.

  16. Always allow start & end time to be modified from the timebar

    Allow manual adjustment of the display timerange start time and end time from the timebar regardless of the size of the Coresight browser window. Currently at small resolutions, e.g. projector screens, the start & end times of the timebar become read-only and cannot be modified.

  17. PI Coresight admin page's Data Servers and Asset Servers should show the same format for test connection button

    On admin page, "Data Servers" tab shows "Test connection" button on the right side.
    On the other hand, "Asset Servers" tab shows "Test connection" button on the left side with green icon.
    Customer thinks that the format should be the same since the function is very similar.
    This request comes from Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Ltd. (Internal notes case: 759016)

  18. select reference event based on actual data in AF (instead of manually pin)

    In Coresight 2017 events can be pinned. Request functionality to automatically select (instead of manually pin) a relevant (reference / golden) event based on actual data in AF (e.g. a reference/golden batch for product currently produced). E.g. having 2 sets of independent search criteria would enable this.

  19. Image files over a certain size (3+ mb) will not load. Coresight should produce an appropriate error message if this limitation is expected

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Insert image file greater than 3mb. Example "FP05a" attached
    2. Produce attached screenshot, "no error msg"

    Desired outcome:
    1. Error message that reads, "Please insert an image up to [xx] in size.
