  3. Multistate: Grow Symbol Size as time elapses in bad state

    Have an option to grow the size of the multistate symbol based on the amount of time that it's been in a 'bad state'. This will help an operator prioritize what they have to do on a page of multistates.

  5. Enable a user to specify attributes they care about

    User Story: Only show me asset attributes that I care about: As a process engineer, I only want to see asset attributes that I care about SO THAT I don’t have to sift through a bunch of all attributes that aren’t typically useful to me.

  6. Provide a ways to Configure the URL for imported Process Book Files.

    Provide a ways to Configure the URL for imported Process Book Files. Currently the Process Book Files are getting unique IDs and those IDs are part of the URL (e.g. https://ip address/PIVision/PB/#/PBDisplays/88)
    The problem is for example we change something on the files, it happens that the Display is getting a new ID. (Newer Version of the Same Display, new ID…)
    For the end-user its annoying when the URL is changing. He has then to update the Favorites, or is confused (or even think the display was removed). Best option would be to provide also an URL with the Filename…

  7. Multistate icon set symbol

    Provide a multistate icon set symbol which would provide distinct state indication similar to Excel's Conditional Formatting -> Icon Sets functionality. Example is attached.

    The changing icons are particularly useful to users who cannot distinguish between colors.

    PI Vision currently has target indicators (up and down arrows) to show if a value is above or below target, but this request is to expand on that and in addition to the target indicators, also allow state indicators such as LL/L/H/HH.

  11. Store entries for "Databases Allowed" in SQL instead of web.config file

    Currently, the entries for the "Databases Allowed" are (locally) enteredin the web.config (PIPC\PIVision folder) file of the Vision server.

    Our PI Vision system is fully redundant (2 Vision servers beneath a loadbalancer, and SQL AlwaysOn), so depending on which server you land (because of the loadbalancer) you can see different Databases in the Asset-pane.
    From my point of view, these entries should be stored in the SQL Database.

  16. collection filter attribute value - failure?

    I want to show all assets in a collection which have the same template and a certain range of the value of a attribute. The selection filter does not work properly!
    The attribute is linked to a PI-tag. When there is no tag linked for certain assets in the template the value 9999 is defined. In the collection I want to filter all with = 9999 so I select attribute < 9999 butno filtering is done. I have tried several similar queries without effect

  18. Change PI Vision's custom symbol load behavior

    Written on behalf of customer.

    Currently all of the extensibility symbols needs to be perfect in order to load at least 1 extensible symbol onto PI Vision.

    This creates a bottleneck in developing the custom symbols for PI Vision because multiple developers cannot work on their symbols.

    Please consider changing the custom symbol load behavior in PI Vision so that it can at least load all the working ones.
