  1. Trending data by other Indices, Vertical trends, Trending by Depth

    O&G customers that are looking at creating analysis applications for their drilling operations, would like to have an option to create vertical trends that would allow them to analyze their drilling operation by depth.

    Trending by another index other than time. For example Oil & Gas Drilling operations.

  2. PI Vision Display Utility: Copy displays between PI Vision databases on the same machine

    The 2019 PI Vision Display Utility was changed so that displays from a PI Vision Server cannot be copied over to a different database on the same PI Vision Server. We keep a backup of the PI Vision SQL database on the same machine as PI Vision in case we need to restore a display from the database backup.

    To support this, we would like the ability to copy displays between different PI Vision databases on the same machine.

  3. Expose display hierarchy in run mode to help navigate between linked displays

    If a display contains navigational links to other displays it would be nice to see this hierarchy and be able to easily switch between linked displays.

  4. Trend Cursor - Slow Data Values

    I've the noticed when adding a trend cursor, that the data values take a very long time to show up. This happens instantaneously in Procesbook, but takes 10-15 seconds in PI Vision, which doesn't make the tool very friendly to use.

  5. Provide a way to manage links used in many displays

    Provide a way to update links used in multiple displays, either with a way of bulk editing them or by allowing users to specify a variable in links that can be updated.

  6. Change display to owner who isn't already listed

    As a Vision admin, I would like to be able to reassign a display's ownership to anyone in the company.  Right now, you can only assign displays to people who have already created a display.  Our security is based on Windows Active Directory.  I should be able to assign any display to anyone in the active directory.  Just like I can search Active Directory when mapping people to Identities, I should be able to pull up the AD in the Display Utility or the Admin page.

  7. File data type attribute is supported just by PI System Explorer. It would be nice to have Pi coresight to support that also

    File data type attribute is supported just by PI System Explorer. It would be nice to have Pi coresight to support that also so a file attribute that hold a picture of an element could be viewd on a coresight display

  11. Provide a 'Description' textbox for Display Settings.

    Dear Devs. Currently, we have a few options for Displays; Display Name, Keywords, Display Owner and 'Share With'.

    I'd like to propose an additional setting in the form of a large text field for 'Description' say, 500 or 1000 characters.

    This would allow Display authors to include meta-data for their displays. Things like a description of what the purpose of the display. Who the intended author is. Who the Business owner of the display should be etc etc. Just a place where authors can add extra detail that may be required.

    Right now I have to do this in an…

  13. Mass copy PI Vision displays between folders

    It would be helpful to mass copy PI Vision displays between folders for different projects. Otherwise, we have to copy one display at a time.
    Obviously, the tags will need reconnected for the copied displays but the value of copy/paste with the display structure will save a lot of time.

  14. collection filter attribute value - failure?

    I want to show all assets in a collection which have the same template and a certain range of the value of a attribute. The selection filter does not work properly!
    The attribute is linked to a PI-tag. When there is no tag linked for certain assets in the template the value 9999 is defined. In the collection I want to filter all with = 9999 so I select attribute < 9999 butno filtering is done. I have tried several similar queries without effect

  15. Allow a screen to be placed in more than one display folder

    I would like the ability to put a display into more than one display folder. For example, I have a folder for 'Electrical'. However, if I want to create a folder for 'Executives', I could not include a screen already in 'Electrical'. My only option would be to create a copy of the display, which would mean needing to make sure both are updated any time a change is made.

  18. Add more tags to one trend for PDI files in Coresignt

    "Add more tags to one trend for PDI files in Coresignt"

    I am interested when i see one .pdi display in Coresight to put in context the tags evolution. Now i can see only one , the selected tag.
    For this reason to make the process easier it is better to can select lat say 10 tags jut by click and open in an trend directly from
    .pdi file.
    In Process book this is possible by VB macro.

  19. Overwrite a display in different folder

    In Pivision - if I use the 'Save As' function to save a display from Folder A to Folder B and that display name already exists in the destination folder - I should be given the option to overwrite the target display if I am the owner of both displays. I think having the warning message 'display already exists' is helpful, however, I should be able to proceed with the overwrite/save.

    If want to stage an update to a display in a limited access folder before copying the update to a public folder I am unable to do so -…

  20. Make PI Vision Display backup feature optional or customisable within Migration Utility

    Make PI Vision Display backup feature optional or customizable within Migration Utility
    Currently the backup feature is hard coded and everytime we migrate displays, errors get logged in DB.  As we don't have access to perform such backups on external system, such feature should be optional and/or customisable.
