Allow the PI Vision Display Utility to export the configuration to a file and import from a file
The current (2017) version of the PI Vision Display Utility requires both environments (source & target) to be connected. There is a need to be able to export and import those displays between systems that are not connected.
If not exported to a file, it could, for example, use PI Web API to use the REST endpoint to export the display configuration and vice-versa.
The export of displays to a file so that they can be imported to another PI Vision server is planned for a future release.
The CTP display copy tool is too limited. If we have a way to export & import displays in XML or Excel, that would allow for the proper maintenance, distribution, generation, version management, etc. of Coresight displays.
Now i need to manually build all displays MANUALLY 4 times when i push them through my environments from Dev, Test, Acceptance, Production. Environments are not on the same network, they can be local developer VM,s in different countries, different organisations, etc.
