  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. Show the Tag and PI Interface for an Attribute on a Display

    Have a way to see the source PI interface somewhere on the display for monitoring and troubleshooting reasons. For example, if there's a flat line on the data.

  10. 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.

  11. Multistate back in History shows Min / Max

    In current time/real time, multistate is based on the value at the current time. However, if the user changes the time of the display to be back in history (not in current time), then it shows a summary values (like min/max/avg) of the attribute indicating if something over that time period was in a bad state. This shows the user that something wrong happened during this time range rather than a value at the end time of the time range.

  12. Trend: Adjust an Event (EF) Start Time or End Time directly from a Trend

    As a super user process engineer, I want to be able to click on an event and see that event start time and end time brackets on the trends and change the start/end time stored in AF by dragging the time marker SO THAT I can fix the event trigger times based on the data I'm visualizing and interpreting since the trigger equations don’t always get it exactly right.

  13. Trend: Show Relative Time

    I want to show relative time on the trend so that I can view my data in reference to the start of Well Production.

    It is likely that Production time is configured as an Event (EF).

  14. Allow multistate for asset comparison columns to be based on the value of another attribute

    Want the ability to set multistate behavior on a attribute column based on another asset value – similar to Value, gauge and drawing symbols. If this can be done – should be able to do it as well for attribute columns which are strings. I would think it is based on a cell in a table at that point.

  15. More flexible multistating of asset comparison table

    The limits for multistating should be able to be different for selected cells in an asset comparison table, rather than applied to everything in the column.  In data tables, each row should be able to have different limits or have multi-state on or off independently.

  17. Allow to configure PI Vision Displays related to the Zoom Level

    Allow to configure PI Vision Displays related to the Zoom Level. This should allow the User to configuring High-level overviews, and when the User is Zooming in there should be details visible.
    This request is similar as Google Maps is working. For PI the use case is more for large PnIDs or Overview Maps. The more zoom the more details are visible (Country – City – Street - …)

  18. Trend: Ability to see long-term trace to put current trace in context

    As a PI Vision user, I want to be able to see a trend's trace in context with how the trace is trending over a larger time range.

    This could be visualized with a smaller trace above the trend that shows the trace over a larger time range, with the section highlighted that corresponds to time range of the main trend. This highlighted section should be able to be dragged forward or backward in times and should be able to be expanded or shrunk using handles. See attached image for an example.
