  1. URL parameters for displays with parent and children attributes

    When I use a URL parameter to change the parent, all of the children attributes on that display also change. I have a handful of element structures that are all the same. I want to make one dashboard and then use A URL parameter to reference the other parents that will automatically update all the other data with children of the newly selected parent.

  3. Allow size change of Trend Column in table

    Dear developers,
    in a table the column containing the small trend/preview cannot be resized (made wider). It would be very beneficial if the size of this column could be also changed.

  4. Zoom in PI ProcessBook ad hoc trends

    When clicking on a symbol of an imported PI ProcessBook display it opens an ad hoc trend in PI Coresight.

    We would like to be able to zoom on that ad hoc trend

  5. Allow Filtering Linked Elements or Elements With Duplicate Names

    1) Ignore linked elements (this seems the most direct but there would probably be a use-case where this would cause a problem)
    2) Allow blocking or “ignore” of selected paths to prevent the search from finding elements not wanted in the results
    3) Maybe a variant of #2 – provide a “preferred path”
    4) display switch(s): “Unique only”, “Ignore Linked” or something like that.

    A similar issue occurs when elements are given duplicate names (ie: Factory 1 and 2 both have a Unit 1 and 2). CS will find 2 Unit1 but it’s not immediately obvious which factory it belongs…

  6. URL Parameter

    Include URL parameter to control AF search path within Coresight. Useful for when sending an email that then allows a user to drag and drop attributes into Coresight.

  8. Plant Operations TreeView Navigation

    16 or so years ago Marty Williams at Coors came up with the idea to create a hierarchy to reference the file location of related PI ProcessBook Displays. The system originally as per the presentation used MS SQL to hold the paths of the PI ProcessBook Displays. This was similar to PIW displays but leaner. I rewrote the program to use the Module database to hold PB file references. The Treeview uses an S88 hierarchy to outline the whole brewing process and maps all implemented production PI ProcessBooks available for Brewing Operations staff. This one PDI file is still in…

  10. Control keyword setting for public displays

    Dear developers,

    in public displays it is possible that anyone can delete keywords which have been stored for a Display. This is not good since then users can change something without the permission of the owner of the display.

    What I did: I changed the keyword for a public display from which I am not the owner, i.e. I delete the only keyword defined and click on save.
    When I check the keywords for the public display I see that the deletion was successful and no keyword is defined.

    I can understand that it should be possible for other users…

  13. Default/Templated displays for asset templates

    because every asset has an template => every template has a asset based view default display.

    it should be possible to configure a default display per asset template, when i klick on the left asset tree then the element automatically opens with the right display

  17. When drilling down, one losses visibility of other elements at the level of the parent.

    This behavior changed from the previous version of Coresight. Major customer in the O&G industry is asking for this to be restored

    Description:
    When I select a parent element (eg. Texas), I'll see all assets under Texas (eg. Odessa, Houston, etc), however I lose visibility of all other elements that existed at the same level of the parent element (Texas, Utah, Wyoming).

    See screenshot attached for more info

  19. AFTable data in Coresight

    Allow AFTable data to be used in a Coresight display symbol.

    Currently there is no way to navigate to AFTable instances in the navigation pane of Coresight. It would be useful to expose these object types and allow custom Coresight symbols to consume their data.

    It would also be beneficial to expose a function in the webServices service so that this data can be retrieved programmatically. Currently, this is only possible by directly querying the PI Web API for this data via an $http call.

  20. Table - Trend Preview

    Trend preview from table. Similar to how Silverlight version worked, where you can click on the spark trend in a table and get a larger preview
