  1. 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.

  2. Event Frame Advanced Search

    There is no ability to refine the event frames returned. Even worse there is no mechanism other than the name to identify the differences between event frames. We do have multiple different types of EF's on a single item of equipment; for example we might have an EF for downtime and another for "idle time" (equipment running but not doing anything useful).

    There is no way currently to filter the EF results based on the EF Template or category. I would also include the template and category in the search results

    A new search configuration dialog has been added to PI Coresight 2016 R2 that allows custom searching for events. Now users can search by event severity, custom time range, asset name, asset type, attribute value, and more. The search configuration is saved with the display so users can quickly find events of interest without the need to reconfigure.

    Thank you for providing your feedback and helping us add the features you want to PI Coresight.

  3. Support loading Coresight search results in smaller sets (paging)

    Provide ability to return smaller sets of search results, which are a manageable size, as well as the ability to return the next set of results when needed by the user.

    Customer Issue: Customers may issue searches in PI Coresight, or browse into an AF element, which returns large numbers of results (on the magnitude of tens or hundreds of thousands). This can result in the search taking so long to return that it times out. In addition, if the search does return, it can be very difficult to navigate and explore through a large number of search results, using…

  4. Hide system and intermediate attributes in Search Results

    Provide the ability, in PI Coresight, to hide particular classifications of AF attributes that are not desired to be returned in search results. These attributes could either be system attributes (as designated by AF) which do not contain meaningful data, or AF attributes that have not been configured.

    Note: This was previously Enhancement 98395.
