  2. Copy or migrate displays between systems & reassign data items

    Be able to copy displays between different Coresight systems. One example might be a dev --> test --> prod scenario. The migration needs to include the reassigning of data items to a new PI-AF server and/or PI Server.

    But there are other cases where you want to reuse a display that's already been created but it's in a different Coresight system.

    Note: This was previously Enhancement 64766.

    The PI Vision Display Utility was released with PI Vision 2017 and allows PI Vision administrators to move displays between PI Vision servers and update data items on displays to facilitate migration between development, test and production environments.

  3. Have the ability to set Preferences / Default configuration options

    Like in PI ProcessBook you could use the Preferences section to set the default configuration options, you need a way to set it in PI Coresight.

    Maybe that could be part of the Administration page. There is a need to have the ability to set the default Trend symbol trace colors, default coloring of other symbols, default time bar time ranges (we should have the ability to define what choices we want to see as a company in the time bar selector), etc.

  4. Bulk Display Management

    Enhance the Display Management section of the administration page to support bulk and multi-select operations to reassign, delete, "make public" and "make private" displays for any display in the system.

    As a PI Coresight administrator, I want to be able to efficiently reassign, make private or delete my site's Coresight displays.

    Workaround: The Home page can be used to administer a single display at a time.

  7. Remove requirement for SQL setting 'disallow results from triggers' to be set to 0

    When 'disallow results from triggers option' SQL feature is enabled and set to 1 on the SQL serverwhere the PI Vision database is hosted, PI Vision displays cannot be saved resulting in error:

    "A trigger returned a resultset and the server option 'disallow results from triggers' is true"

    Existing versions of PI Vision do not support this feature to be enabled and must be set to 0 for a proper functioning of PI Vision saving displays capabilities.
    However, this SQL feature is reportedly recommend to be set to 1 by Microsoft and it is mandatory for some customers to have…

  9. Allow a way to clean up the Display Management "To" list of users

    Customer has many more users appearing in the display management To list than the from list. He is wondering why being or having been a display owner at some is sufficient to remain in this list. Could there be a means to delete unneeded users from this "To" list?

    You can use “User Settings” on the admin portal to remove a user from the drop-down list by clearing its settings. Please check out the functionality and let us know what you think. Thank you for your feedback!

  10. PI Vision: End support for Internet Explorer 11 (IE)

    Microsoft has announced end of support for Internet Explorer 11. For more information, refer to the Microsoft page, https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/lifecycle/faq/internet-explorer-microsoft-edge. AVEVA recommends only using supported browsers to access PI Vision.

    With future releases of PI Vision, AVEVA is evaluating dropping support for Internet Explorer due to the Microsoft end of support. Moving to a supported browser gives customers a more secure and more modern browsing experience.

    We would like to hear your feedback on how this change would impact your organization and your current plans to migrate away from Internet Explorer. Are there environments where your PI Vision users will…

  11. Specify a domain account for the search crawler

    The default account used for the Crawler service to index the allowed service might not have the correct permissions to create the index. If this occurs, the PI Coresight Admin needs to open the Services applet and change the password and restart the service. Specifying an appropriately privileged user account during installation mitigates this problem.

  12. Removing Displays

    If you are in the PI Vision Admins group, you will have permissions to delete any display. This can be done on the PI Vision home page by clicking on the gear icon to open the Display Settings dialog and choosing ‘Delete display’. If you’d like to delete displays in bulk, the PI Vision Display Utility can be used for this.
