  1. AF URL attribute object in PI Vision

    PI Vision should have a object that gives functionality to open URL´s from AF attributes.
    It is possibel to use URL´s in AF attributes, it is even possible to open them from system explorer.
    PI Vision should recon that it is a URL when you drag it into the design pane and automatically create a text object with the URL.

  2. Allow ?Asset= to use all the derived templates under a base template as correct matches

    Attempting to use the parameters reference to reuse a display using the ?Asset= approach.

    All my assets at one level are based on the the same template with a couple of them derived from that template.

    This approach seems to require the template to be an exact match and not derived from the same template - is that the case?

    It would be far more useful to me if I could build one display based on the "building dashboard" template and then use it on that template and all derived templates as they will have the same "base" attributes.

    Yes…

    Enhancements to the Asset= parameter in PI Vision 2017 allow for the use of assets from derived templates of a PI Vision display. In addition, PI Vision 2017 R2 introduced the ability to configure the asset template, asset category or asset name filter used for the asset selector on a display.

  3. Using ONE display to link to multiple related assets

    This took me a long time to figure out, but you can already do this, just not easily Say you make a display for Engine 01 and it shows RPM HP and Fuel. You can then take the link and modify it so when you get an alarm for Engine 09 you can use the same display but send an email with a URL that will show engine 09 data. There has to be a way we can simplify this.
    IE:
    https://X.com:/Coresight/#/Displays/655/Main-Unit-Diagnostic
    https://X.com:/Coresight/#/Displays/655/Main-Unit-Diagnostic?Asset=\\SERVER\AF NAME\FOLDER\Main Unit 09

    The asset parameter can be used to change the AF context of a display, or an alternative is to use the asset list. By default the asset list shows elements based on the same template as other assets on the display, and starting in PI Vision 2017 R2 you can configure search criteria to control which elements appear in the asset list.

  4. Kiosk Mode: Show/hide toolbar/time bar of a display using URL Parameters

    Enhancement Request: Provide the ability to show and/or hide the toolbar and/or time range when browsing to PI Coresight displays.

    Customer Issue: PI Coresight is being integrated into customer dashboards. As such, more customization of the Coresight chrome is being requested to fully utilize the space afforded PI Coresight into these dashboards. There are scenarios where the toolbar and/or time bar are not needed along with the display currently being shown in the PI Coresight area of the dashboard.

    Note: This was previously Enhancement 103986.

  5. URL paramters

    I wish I can use URL parameters(kiosk mode, hidetoolbars etc) across all coresight displays and not just on Ad-hoc display.

    URL parameters like Kiosk mode, HideToolBar, HideTimeBar, etc., work across all PI Coresight displays; displays created with the editor, Ad-hoc displays, and imported PB Displays.

  6. Supply a "master asset" URL parameter

    This enhancement request is to be able to supply an AF asset path as a querystring parameter in a Coresight URL to allow that asset to be applied to the symbols on the display which share that asset's template.

    Note: This was previously Enhancement 62283.
