  2. Add description to search results

    Show description information in the search results when searching for PI tags and AF attributes.

    Just showing the Tag Name is not helpful on sites with large volumes of complexly named tags. Descriptions are shown in a tooltip when hovering over search results however description information needs to be more prominent.

  3. Add ability to Collapse/Expand Attribute category sections in Asset Search Pane

    By default, the attributes shown for an asset in the Asset Search Pane, are all shown under their categories with no ability to collapse a given section. The can mean that the user has to scroll down a considerable amount in order to find the attributes they need (see screenshot 1). Screenshot 2 shows an example of how the "Real-Time Data" may be beneath under attribute sections, that while may be important at times, are not collapsible to make it quicker and easier to get to a section the user may access much more frequently. Of course, one can make…

  4. Search for assets by attribute value

    User Story: Search for assets by attribute value: As a process engineer, I want to retrieve assets of a particular type by specifying an attribute value like Production SO THAT I can find the specific assets that I'm looking for.

    For example, find me all wells where Production < 1000.

  6. PI Vision - Tag search results should show both name and description

    As a user creating PI Vision displays, I would like to see the tag descriptions as part of search results so that I can quickly and easily spot the right tag I am looking for.

    In the current version of PI Vision I have to hoover the tag search results to see the tag description which is time-consuming.

  7. Manual Search of Assets in PI Vision Display

    Adding functionality to manually search for assets under a parent element without the pre-populated asset dropdown list in a PI Vision display. This can be used when there are many assets listed under the parent element with the same template (i.e. 70,000+ transformers listed under parent element Transformers).

  8. Display Current Value on Hover

    When searching for a tag, hovering over the tag will currently display the description. It would be helpful to also show the most recent value for the tag, along with the time stamp.

  9. search by description

    Search by a tag description on search. Currently you must search by when using PI AF, we use tagnames, so using tag descriptions would make the queries esier when searching for a specific system with just the description.

  11. support querying by pipoint attributes

    As a user, with points in different pointsources, I would like to use PI Point Query Syntax to specify a specific point source.

    Since Vision 2020 is now using AFSDK instead of crawler, the search text box should allow ability to search by any query syntax permitted.

    Without this capability, users will drag historical tags onto the screen, and then wonder why the tag is failing to update, or is "Scan-Off".

    In the absence of this capability, when a single tag is selected in the search result, the ability to right click to context menu (or displaying this information in…
