    PI Coresight 2016 includes a feature that allows a display owner to share a display with a specific group of users. Management of security groups is controlled by an Administrator using PI-AF identities (which can be tied to Active Directory groups). Group sharing applies to native PI Coresight displays and imported PI ProcessBook displays.

  2. View Read-Only Access for Coresight users

    Allow a PI Coresight Admin to provide viewing (read-only) access to a subset of users. These users will not have the ability to save new displays.

    An example might be a university where they would like to give students viewing read-only access to displays available in the system.

    ===
    Note that this request is different than a kiosk mode which does limit creation of new displays, but does not allow a user to search for data items, perform ad hoc creation of symbols, and does not enable navigation from the displays page.

    Note: This was previously Enhancement 106679.

    The PI Vision development team has released a new Explorer user type in PI Vision 2017. Explorer users can view and manipulate existing displays and create ad-hoc displays for investigation, but cannot save displays. Upgrade to PI Vision 2017 to take advantage of this and other new features. You can read about the key new features in PI Vision 2017 in our release announcement here: https://techsupport.osisoft.com/Troubleshooting/Releases/RL01216.

  3. 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.

    In PI Vision 2019, only users with write access to a folder will see the sharing option for that folder. The list of identities shown for sharing will be the identities that the user is a member of in addition to the identities that the folder has already been shared with.

    For additional information on PI Vision 2019 check out the release announcement here: https://customers.osisoft.com/s/knowledgearticle?knowledgeArticleUrl=kA01I0000007AdxSAE

  4. 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.

    In PI Vision 2019, this behavior has been changed so that there is no longer a pop-up warning when navigating to an external site. Instead the mouse cursor will change to indicate when a symbol is configured with a navigation link and a tooltip will show the navigation link URL.

  5. Support installation on Windows Server Core

    Support installation on Windows Server Core with the standard install kit. Server Core requires fewer patches, uses fewer resources and has a smaller attack surface than the full GUI version of Windows Server.
