  2. Trend Scale Range: Top / Bottom Based on AF Attribute or calculation

    Would like the ability to set the trend scale based on an AF Attribute since different products, equipment, lines etc might have different operating parameters.

    It would also be nice to be able to base the scale on a calculation, i.e. (AF_Attribute_UpperLimit + 5%)

    AF attributes can be used for scale limits in PI Vision. This can be done using the Minimum and Maximum limit attribute traits in AF.

    If these are set and the trend is configured to use database settings then these values will be used as the minimum and maximum scale values.

    For more information on attribute limit traits please see: https://livelibrary.osisoft.com/LiveLibrary/content/en/server-v11/GUID-0D32012F-7520-4555-8086-FBC6286FC50A

  4. Use AF attribute traits to set symbol scale or limits

    As a PI Vision user, I would like to have the option to set the scale or limits of any symbol based on the attribute traits defined in AF. When the symbol contains multiple attributes, it would be useful to be able to select only one attribute to define the scale of the symbol.

    PI Vision currently supports this functionality. When the ‘database’ option is selected for a symbol scale, if the attribute has Min and Max traits, the traits will automatically be used to define the scale on the PI Vision symbol.

  5. Multistate Configuration should show the values defined for the limits besides the traits (Maximum, HiHi, Hi, Lo, etc..).

    For multistate configuration with AF limits, the customer would like to see the values defined for the limits besides the traits (Maximum, HiHi, Hi, Lo, etc..).

    In previous versions the limit trait values were shown in the tooltip if you hovered over the name shown for the limit. In PI Vision 2017 R2 we changed this so that the value is shown in the configuration pane under the name of the limit attribute trait so that you do not need to hover to see these values.

  6. Allow a way to clean up the Display Management "To" list of users

    Customer has many more users appearing in the display management To list than the from list. He is wondering why being or having been a display owner at some is sufficient to remain in this list. Could there be a means to delete unneeded users from this "To" list?

    You can use “User Settings” on the admin portal to remove a user from the drop-down list by clearing its settings. Please check out the functionality and let us know what you think. Thank you for your feedback!

  7. Search by attribute or tag description

    When searching for attribute, it would be nice to search descriptions of attributes as well.

    The descriptions of AF attributes and PI Tags are searched when executing a search in PI Vision. To view the description of a search result, hover over the item and the description will be show in the tooltip. Showing the description of search item results in tooltips was added in the 2016 R2 version.

  8. PI Manual Logger: Option for Web App to default to Grid View

    In PI Manual Logger Web, there is a Grid Data Entry view, and a List Data Entry view.  The current default is the List view.  However, many users only use the Grid view.  It would be nice to have an option, such as a url parameter, that has a Tour Run default to the Grid view.

  11. Shortcut to collapse all groups at once in the PIML Web Grid View

    By default in the PI Manual Logger Grid view, all groups are displayed in the expanded state.  To minimize clutter on the screen, some users like to work with all groups collapsed except for the group they are currently working with.  To facilitate this workflow, it would be helpful to have a "Collapse all/Expand all" control to collapse or expand all groups at once in the grid view.

  12. Much richer dashboard look and feel properties to tune

    a.      The canvas colour cannot be changed through a user-friendly control. The 2016 R2 version requires fiddling with the CSS in order to change canvas colour. Or, one must resort to overlaying a filled rectangle. Not elegant, on both accounts.

    b.      Various font sizes, types and colours cannot be changed. Only trace color and style can be changed in PI Coresight 2016. However, the text in the trace side bar cannot be adjusted.

    c.      The text blocks change text size based upon block size and cannot be independently changed.

    d.      Better graphic element layout helpers (like snap, grid, group, even…

    The PI Vision development team has completed work to allow the “Fit-all” option to be saved with a display in PI Vision 2017. Displays saved with “Fit-all” will automatically resize to fit within the browser window. Upgrade to PI Vision 2017 to take advantage of this and other key new features. You can read about the key new features in PI Vision 2017 in our release announcement here: https://techsupport.osisoft.com/Troubleshooting/Releases/RL01216

  15. URL Parameter to configure value scale

    Add scale mode to the URL parameters to allow for pre-selection of single or multiple scales.

    COMPLETED  ·  Alicia Coppock responded

    The PI Vision development team has implemented a setting for the Symbol URL parameter allowing multiple scales to be toggled on or off for ad-hoc trends in PI Vision 2017 R2. By default multiple scales will be shown, to use single scale instead add the parameter: Symbol=trend;MultipleScales=false

    Upgrade to PI Vision 2017 R2 to take advantage of this and other new features. You can read about what’s new in PI Vision 2017 R2 in the release announcement: https://techsupport.osisoft.com/Troubleshooting/Releases/RL01278

  16. Gauge Symbols with configurable areas

    Dear developers,

    we are really missing the gauges as visualization element. It would be good to have them again in the next Version. Similar to the multistate Symbol it would be good to be able defining what is the Minimum and Maximum area.

    Best regards Kerstin Voss

  17. Support installation on Windows Server Core

    Support installation on Windows Server Core with the standard install kit. Server Core requires fewer patches, uses fewer resources and has a smaller attack surface than the full GUI version of Windows Server.

  18. Hide trace

    Provide a user with the ability to hide a trace on trends. Basically the user can click on the trend legend (or a check box in the legend table - see other enhancement request) to show/hide the trace.

    This functionality exists within process book, so basically replicate the same functionality in Coresight.

    Traces can be hidden by right-clicking on the trace in the legend and choosing ‘Hide Trace’. This functionality was added in the 2016 version.

  19. PI Vision trend dynamic scales with attribute values

    PI Vision trend should have dynamic scales according with the attribute values (limits).

    This feature is available in PI Vision 2016 or later. It can be accomplished by leveraging dynamic AF attribute traits, which was introduced in PI Server 2016.

  20. Alignment of values within an element

    Ability to left, centre and right align text so that when values change, they stay aligned with sibling elements. For instance, a value of 1,000psi going down to 0psi will align itself back to the left but it would be preferable to align to the right so that units line up.
