PI Vision (Search crawler) configuration option to automatically index new AF database.
Request for a feature in PI Vision (search crawler) to automatically index new AF databases for a given AF Server. This allows for a seamless process between building out AF hierarchy and being able to visualize the data in PI Vision. Currently users (database architects whom may not have PI Vision admin access) must wait for PIVision (or WebAPI) admin to add the database for indexing.
In the upcoming PI Vision 2020 release, we will remove PI Vision’s dependency on PI Web API, and thus the dependency on PI Indexed Search and the PI Indexed Search Crawler.

Agreed, would like to see this added as standard configuration

I know this is a bit old, but I agree with David Wang. I need a way to trigger the crawler service to index DA databases and AF databases. I added all the tags and elements, but they aren't immediately available in Pi Vision. I don't know when the crawler service is going next. Is there a way to trigger it manually so I can continue working on the Pi Vision displays? I'm going to give it a day, but it would be nice if I could deliver this sooner than later.
