  1. Logout capability

    We would like to change users often. Could we have a logout button or something similar?

  2. Add ability to search for AF Identities to share displays with

    Instead of a scrolling list of checkboxes, it would be helpful to be able to search for specific AF Identities to share displays with.

  3. Set Permissions for Root folder "Home"

    As already implemented for subfolders, we would like to set permissions also on root folder "Home".

    Use Case: We would like to make sure that only creation of new displays in subfolders is possible and not in home folder.

  4. Support Multi-tenancy in PI Coresight

    Have Coresight support mutli-tenancy (possibly as Software as a Service, SaaS) so individual tenants of the application can't access each other's displays/data.

    In order to support multiple tenants, we need a way to isolate displays so that users can only see certain displays.

  5. Integration with customer enterprise ‘non-windows’ authentication system

    A significant number of customers in my region are not using/don’t plan to adopt WIS as their authentication policy. As a result many of them are not using windows AD.

    Customers need PI Vision to be more flexible: PI Vision pages can be integrated with their chosen SSO system, or at least don’t have to enter windows credentials when viewing a PI Vision page embedded into a Portal.

  9. PI Vision support for URL only display access

    Please create a way of sharing displays with users without having the display show up in "All Displays". Rather, the display should be private but only accessible through URL to a mapped group. This group could be PI World or a specific set of AF users.

  10. Use WIS to allow security based on Active Directory

    PI Coresight 2016 allows 'Set Database Search Root' and 'Restrict Database Access' but is assignable only to individual users - too cumbersome to manage in a large system. Want to integrate with WIS so can use this to assign to previously defined AD groups (ex: based on user site/location) as this is how the PI access is assigned (AD group mapped to PI identity). Could potentially use the same functionality as the display group security which is based on AF identities.

  11. Option to disable warning pop-up for trusted third-party sites

    Add the option to whitelist certain domains from triggering the third-party warning pop-up. This could also be handled per session by end-users ("Remember my choice") instead of adding domains to a whitelist.

    Current version of PI Vision has the dialog box hardcoded to trigger if a navigation link is not a link to another display.

  12. Restrict user tag search of the PI Data Archive in PIVIsion

    Ability to restrict Pi Vision users to use the PI Data Archive tag search when building displays.
    There exists a feature to restrict user access to AF Databases in the PIVision\admin\UserSettings. However, there is no way to restrict PI Vision users from the PI Data Archive.
    Or be able to rename the PI DA symbol in the search.

  14. Hide or Show AF Templates in PI Vision based on identities

    We have a TON of AF templates and not necessarily all of them will be used by our end users. It would be nice if there was a way to either view these templates by category or make them show/hide based on AF identities. Currently there is now way to hide a AF template in PI Vision without deleting it.

  16. Allow to modify a read-only display if I am the owner

    As a owner of a display, i would like to be able to modify it even if it is marked as read-only.

    Actually, I need to go on the main page, uncheck the read-only, edit the display, save it, and back to the home page again to modifiy to read-only again

  17. Add the ability to hide the domain of a logged-on user

    Provide administrators with the ability to hide or obscure the domain of users logged on to a Vision server (instead of domain\userID in the top right, it would just show userID).

    Creating on behalf of a customer, for who the Vision server is hosted on an internal network but accessed externally. They wish to hide the internal domain for users outside the network.

  18. Change display sharing options for displays in a folder

    If a display is in a folder, the list of identities with which the display can be shared will include all identities. However, the customer do not want to see all the Identities, only want to find all identities that the current user is a member of.

    We are making this change in the upcoming release of PI Vision 2019 so that only users with write access to a folder will see the sharing option for that folder and the list of identities shown will be the identities that they are a member of in addition to the identities that the folder has already been shared with.

  19. Claims based authentication through Azure B2C instead of B2B

    Currently PI Vision support claims based authentication through openid connect one of which is Azure b2b. However Azure B2B is not flexible when it comes to onboarding process. For this Azure B2C is a preffered option however the library's required are not natively support in PI Vision.

  20. Allow anonymous authentication to PI Vision

    As a PI System Administrator, I want to allow read-only access to PI Vision for anonymous users so that my users do not need to log in on their mobile devices to view displays and data.
