Provide a ways to Configure the URL for imported Process Book Files.
Provide a ways to Configure the URL for imported Process Book Files. Currently the Process Book Files are getting unique IDs and those IDs are part of the URL (e.g. https://ip address/PIVision/PB/#/PBDisplays/88)
The problem is for example we change something on the files, it happens that the Display is getting a new ID. (Newer Version of the Same Display, new ID…)

Updating a ProcessBook display should not change the display ID. There might be a system issue that is causing the display to be removed before it is re-added, which could cause this issue. We do currently provide a URL to access the ProcessBook display by its path and name, not its ID. I think that should meet your needs. Here is an example from the PI Vision Installation and Administration Guide:
If the path to the PI ProcessBook display file is \\fileServer\Imports\Dealer
\Customer2\ChemicalPlant\DistillationProcess.svg you can open it using the
I hope this is helpful.
