  3. Trend Matrix Display / Auto Sizing Trends

    Have the ability to create a display of trends organized in a configurable matrix (1x1, 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, 2x4, etc.). The sizing of the trends on the display would be automatically sized by the Coresight application to auto-fit the screen and minimize white space.

    A key point here is to make sure the trend area has the same width so comparison across trends is easy.

  6. End Users can set their own default AF path

    The ability for an end user to set their own AF path within the Asset/Data Search Palette so that this path is the default 'scope' shown when browsing and for any searches on assets and data items.

    This is useful for companies that have large AF hierarchies but a user just wants a view of what their responsibilities are for. (if they search for a Tank, they don't want 20K tanks returned).

    One way to do this might be to 'pin' a AF path in the tree.

  7. Search for assets by attribute value

    User Story: Search for assets by attribute value: As a process engineer, I want to retrieve assets of a particular type by specifying an attribute value like Production SO THAT I can find the specific assets that I'm looking for.

    For example, find me all wells where Production < 1000.

  8. Allow the import folder to be changed without re-importing displays

    Allow administrators to update the Folder attribute to an import folder.

    Customer Issue: If the name of a file server is changed or the path to a share is modified, then the import folder must be re-added through import folder management and the displays must be re-imported.

    Workaround: If the name of the fileserver is changed, a DNS alias can be used to point to the new location.

    Note: This was previously Enhancement 117010.

  9. Search for attributes by value

    Add the ability to search by an attribute's or PI Point's value, not only configuration data. Value searching should work for all types of values: float, integer, string or enumeration value.

    Note: This was previously Enhancement 109138.

  10. Highlight traces on a trend from Event multiselection

    When a user multiselects events / child events, highlight the appropriate time period/traces on the trends for the event. This could apply to both a single time period trend and an overlay trend.

  11. Attribute Category Filter URL Parameter

    Add support for an attribute category filter in the Ad Hoc display URL parameters so that Ad Hoc displays can be constructed with only relevant attributes displayed.

    Customer Issue: Sometimes it is useful to display only a subset of attributes from an element in an Ad Hoc display, such as when there are a mix of static and dynamic attributes, or when a only specific aspect of the asset is of interest. Currently the two options with the DataItems parameter are to specify the element to show all attributes (DataItems=\\AFSRV\AFDB\Element) or specify the attributes explicitly in a semicolon delimited list…

  12. Suppport unique IDs for specifying AF objects in a Coresight URL Parameter

    Customer Issue: AdHoc PI Coresight displays for AF element attributes must use the full element path in the DataItem URL parameter. There should be a mechanism to create AdHoc displays based on AF element GUIDs.

    Enhancement Request: Add the abilityto accept the following schema for AF objects:

    {ServerID} + “|” + {AF|EF} + “:” +{Object GUID|Object Path} | {Attribute name}

    Workaround: None; a full path to an AF object is required

    Note: This was previously Enhancement 113343.

  13. Set the order of the root import folders when more than one root folder is defined

    Customer Issue: Import folders are listed in the order they are added which makes it difficult to sort them if more folders need to be included later.

    Enhancement Request: Allow administrators to set the import folder order.

    Workaround: If possible, include the import folders under the same root folder subfolders of an import directory are displayed in alphabetical order. Another method is to add the import fodlers in the order you want the import folders to be listed in the Home page.

    Note: This was previously Enhancement 117008.

  14. Share an event in email

    Be able to select an event (event frame), click a share button, and have PI Coresight automatically insert information about the event into the email such as name, start time, end time, duration, asset, and event attribute values. Also include a screen shot of the event on a trend.

    Also include a link to the same event details page in PI Coresight and a link to the display the event was on when shared, preserving all time context.

  20. 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.
