Ability to disable Calculations feature
In some situations, PI Vision administrators may wish to globally disable the Calculations feature, or selectively limit who may use it.
- Backwards compatibility with PI ProcessBook Data Sets is not needed
- Policy requires exclusive use of Asset Analytics
- Concerns of increased load on the PI Server due to lack of restrictions on Calculation creation
PI Vision should offer the ability to limit the use of Calculations throughout the system, or to only a select group of trusted users.
The functionality to disable calculation creation and calculation evaluation is in development for the PI Vision 2021 release. This will be a server level setting that can be set for the entire PI Vision server and is applicable to all users.
Thank OSI Soft for providing this much needed functionality. As it is open to all users, it will increase additional load on the system. Option to provide the functinality to selected users will very helpful.
