  3. Custom symbol security AD aware?

    PI Vision's extensibility is a great feature to implement and extend Vision to more custom displays. Sometimes though, we don't want all users to be using some custom symbols. If there is a per symbol security for custom symbols in built instead of manual override in code will be great. Kenji has already done the majority of the work : https://pisquare.osisoft.com/community/developers-club/pi-visualization-development/blog/2016/07/21/how-to-customize-appearance-of-pi-coresight-2016#comment-9600.

  4. Referenced Elements in PI AF

    We have a referenced Elements created In PI AF. We see the referenced elements has the same Element ID. Currently there is not flag to differentiate the Original Element from the Referenced Element. In PI AF it has a little arrow which tells us it is a referenced element. Would you be able to add flag for the referenced elements in the Element tables? Thanks!

  5. A compose mode, as well as a published mode for the CoreSight UI environment

    The current CoreSight mix composition and use of dashboards. Consequently, features, such as the AF tree is only available for compose actions, whereas it could have doubled as display navigation feature, where there a published mode for the displays.

    Also, switching a display to other instances of the underlying AF template prompt for Save, as if the display was in compose mode.

    WordPress is a good analogy: It has a powerful compose mode, in which web pages can be edited in many ways. Published web pages can be browsed as usual with web browsers.

  6. Support Installation on Windows Nano Server

    Support installation on Windows Nano Server.  Nano Server is the latest OS that is optimized around private clouds and data centers. 

    It has a much smaller footprint from Windows Server Core and is "headless" which means that there is no GUI or local login capability.

    Unfortunately it’s impossible to translate VBA into something a web browser will allow you to do. PI Vision does have it’s own extensibility model, but it is based on web development (JavaScript).

  8. One Step Process to Clean Cached Events on Mobile Devices with PIML Mobile

    As a user of Manual Logger Mobile, I would like the ability to easily manage the number of cached devices on my mobile device. It is a lot of steps required to clean up the number of cached events on a handheld device.

  10. Allow scrollbars on Coresight Processbook displays

    When viewing large displays in Processbook the user can use scrollbars to navigate around the display whilst zoomed in so that the symbols remain legible.

    When these displays are imported into Coresight there are no scrollbars which make it very difficult to navigate the display.

    Scrollbar functionality should be implemented in Coresight processbook displays so that the same user experience is shared in both formats.

  11. "Rubber band" object expansion

    I would like the bar graph, trend graph, and table to have sort of a "rubber band" expand mode. As I expand the object, text labels expand in size proportionally as well as the main element.

  12. [!] speech bubble in the header should have a tooltip

    This is minor, but the [!] speech bubble in the header should have a tooltip when you hover over it. I wasn't sure what it was before I clicked on it.

  14. Do not preserve old values in Gauges or values

    I designed a display. I wanted all of the parameters shown to be from a different set of assets. (URL parameters didn't work because they were in an AF hierarchy nd not a flat structure). I draged the numbers onto the guages and values and viola, the values reflected the new, dragged on value. The issue is that when you clisk on the value and view the history, it still shows the original value and there is no way to get rid of the original. Would be best if the oroginal disappeared, but secondarily, make it possible to delete the…

    Thanks for sharing details and clarifying this request. When updating a value symbol, dragging a new attribute will update the symbol value but not the multi-state as the multi-state is configured independently. You will need to drag the same attribute to the multi-state area as well.

    There are no near term plans to implement the requested functionality.

  15. Informationen based on Zoom Level

    Would be nice, for hugh overviews, to have the ability to define what is shown on the display based on the zoom level

  16. When drilling down, one losses visibility of other elements at the level of the parent.

    This behavior changed from the previous version of Coresight. Major customer in the O&G industry is asking for this to be restored

    Description:
    When I select a parent element (eg. Texas), I'll see all assets under Texas (eg. Odessa, Houston, etc), however I lose visibility of all other elements that existed at the same level of the parent element (Texas, Utah, Wyoming).

    See screenshot attached for more info

  17. Gauge: Show the min/max/avg values on gauge

    PI Coresight 2016 does not show the min/max/avg data value on a gauge the way that previous versions of PI Coresight did.

  20. Mobile version - Search specific PI server

    Mobile version search needs to be able to select a specific PI server to search first. We have a lot of PI servers, so searching all of them takes a huge amount of time when we know exactly which server we would like to search on. We hit the result limit because we are not able to select a specific PI server to search
