  1. Hyperlink to Display: Additional Filter Options

    When linking to another display, being able to see folders that displays are in would be useful to finding the display as opposed to just a Display Name search.

  2. Stacked area trends

    I would like to have the possibility to use most of the plot types present in Excel in Coresight.
    One of the most useful for me would be stacked area trends.

    We use it really often at corporative level to show, for example, plants contribution to the total production of the company.

  3. Polar plot

    I want to be able to do a polar plot! We have the need to monitor deformation in the stator of a hydro turbine. The you can see if the stator is oval.
    The time-series data behind must have an configurable time space.
    Start time, period.

  5. 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.

  6. Change Login as a different admin user

    As a System Administrator I want to log in to the PI Coresight Administration site using different credentials than are currently logged into the computer so that I don't have to change IE settings, close the browser, restart the browser and log in.

    Provide a mechanism to log out of the admin site and log in as a different authorized user.

  7. 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…

  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.

  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. Support logical operators (AND, OR, NOT) in PI Vision searches

    Searching for data items by search string in PI Vision can tend to return a large number of results, making it difficult to find the tags and attributes to add to displays. Currently, PI Vision does not support using logical operators (like AND, OR and NOT) to refine the search criteria.

  11. 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.

  12. Enable a user to specify attributes they care about

    User Story: Only show me asset attributes that I care about: As a process engineer, I only want to see asset attributes that I care about SO THAT I don’t have to sift through a bunch of all attributes that aren’t typically useful to me.

  16. Table: Support Different Table Styles

    Similar to tables in Word / PowerPoint, support several different styling options for tables. Additionally, support the ability for a user to style a table exactly how they want it (with background fill colors, text colors, etc.).

  17. Preserve Zoom Level on saving a display

    Preserve the zoom level when saving a display so that it opens to that level. This is probably needed per user per device.

    Currently PI Vision will save the Fit All setting, so that the display will always open to fit all contents in the browser window but specific zooms levels are not saved.
