  1. PI Vision and PI ProcessBook macro support

    As a PI Vision and PI ProcessBook user, I would like to have VBA code support on PI Vision, or Web API code embedded on a PI ProcessBook display so I can publish a single display with macros on PI Vision.

    While we won’t be supporting PI ProcessBook VBA macros within PI Vision, PI Vision does support extensible symbols and toolpanes created for use with native PI Vision displays.

  2. PI Vision install kit should include AF Client 2017 SP2

    The PI Vision 2017 install kit includes an older version of PI AF Client (2.9.0.8065).

    There should be a new PI Vision install kit that includes the latest PI AF client 2017 SP2 (2.9.2.8185) that fixes some issues that was found in the older version.

    This would simplify installation steps.

  3. Trend: Show Child Events (EF) on a Trend

    I want to view child events like phases for a production run on the trend so that I can clearly see where these phases start and end in relation to the continuous data.

    One visualization example for this is to draw a vertical line at the start of each child event and place the name of the child event vertically along the line. This is another way to visualize child events rather than an aligned Gantt Chart.

    This would pose a significant security concern so I have to decline it. On the other hand, I’d like to know what you are trying to accomplish and how we can help. PI Vision 2017 R2 SP1 (the latest version) allows display authors to define text font size and color.

  5. After moving displays to a folder, the display owner should be able to maintain read-access

    Currently, after moving a display to a folder, a display owner will lose write permissions to the display if they do not have write permissions to the folder. It would be easier if display owners automatically had write permissions to displays even if they are moved to a new folder.

    If admins wish to control access to certain folders, it may be better to configure that as a setting for the folder (ie a setting where "Only folder permissions are considered for security to displays) or they can change the display owner.

    The behavior is by design, and I think, is intuitive and expected by most users. Take Windows operating system for example, if you create a file on your desktop, and move it to a folder to which you don’t have write access, you will lose write access to that file as well.

    On the other hand, the behavior you proposed would pose a security concern. Therefore, I have declined it.

  6. Remove HTTPS Requirement

    Is there any way to make this run in HTTP mode only?  It seems to want to default to HTTPS, but there isn't any real way to make a certificate from an authority work since this isn't an internet-facing server.  Most browsers harbor an extreme distaste for self-signed certs.

    In general, the entire World Wide Web is moving away from HTTP to HTTPS for security. In fact, more and more websites only allow connections via HTTPS, which is also adopted as a standard by an increasing number of our customers. As OSIsoft is committed to delivering most security products to our customers, we are obliged to use HTTPS and to be rid of HTTP.

    Unfortunately it’s impossible to translate VBA into something a web browser will allow you to do. PI Vision does have it’s own extensibility model, but it is based on web development (JavaScript).

  9. Text Editing in CoreSight 2016 beta

    In the 2016 Beta, is it possible to edit text once entered, or must it be deleted and re added ? It would be useful to adjust the text size, and ideally have an italic font as well as a standard font such as is already in use.

  10. Search for Text at end of Data Item

    Currently when users type a search string, PI Coresight automatically appends a * wildcard character. So if a user searches for "**state", it is the same as searching for "*State*".

    Users would like the ability to search for text at the end of the data item name, so that a search for "*State" would return "OutletState", but would not return "FanState1".

    Note: This was previously Enhancement 79001.
