  2. Add ability to Collapse/Expand Attribute category sections in Asset Search Pane

    By default, the attributes shown for an asset in the Asset Search Pane, are all shown under their categories with no ability to collapse a given section. The can mean that the user has to scroll down a considerable amount in order to find the attributes they need (see screenshot 1). Screenshot 2 shows an example of how the "Real-Time Data" may be beneath under attribute sections, that while may be important at times, are not collapsible to make it quicker and easier to get to a section the user may access much more frequently. Of course, one can make…

  3. PI Vision - "Internal Server Error"

    PI Vision "Internal Server Error" are not detailed enough to properly troubleshoot.
    As PI administrator, it would be great to have more granular and specific PI Vision "Internal Server Error" messages in order to get more insight as to what is going on.
    Our users have been experiencing intermittent "Internal Server Error", and we can not tell what the issue is either from the message log text neither when looking at the message logs level.
    If we have the ability to troubleshoot the root cause of the "Internal Server Error", we will be able to start looking at the problems…

  4. Asset Comparison Table: Label options for attribute columns

    The asset comparison table should allow control of what is shown as the column name. It would be helpful to be able to add custom friendly names to columns in asset comparison tables, or to use attribute description.

  6. Use PI AF substitution syntax for naming of elements on a display.

    With the new Collections feature in PI Vision it will be critical to keep the names of our elements to a few characters as it will pull the name from its element.
    It would be a great feature to allow the use of AF substitution logic so that I can use an Attribute within the element as a short name which will keep the visual in PI Vision tidy.

  7. Migrating Folder Structure Between PI Vision Environments with the PI Vision Display Utility

    As of right now, there is no easy way to copy the folder structure. It would either have to be recreated manually or the entire database restored via a backup.

    If the PI Vision Display Utility could also migrate the folder structure it would be a big help for users and administrators.

  8. Add "Sequence of Events" Symbol Type

    Add a table symbol which consists of the following 3 columns:

    Tag Name
    Tag Value
    Tag Timestamp (default sort on this column, ascending order)

    This table would consist of a set of tags over a specified time range.

    The purpose of this "Sequence of Events" table is for users to analyze the root cause and order of events that took place for a set of equipment. Typically your symbols in PI Vision and the way Datalink works is that each tag is separated into a separate column or row. The key feature here is to merge the tags into one…

  10. Search for assets by attribute value

    User Story: Search for assets by attribute value: As a process engineer, I want to retrieve assets of a particular type by specifying an attribute value like Production SO THAT I can find the specific assets that I'm looking for.

    For example, find me all wells where Production < 1000.

  11. Show ToolTip Statistics at PI Vision

    As a PI user, I would like to see the same ToolTip statistics as we are used to see at PI ProcessBook. It is automatic when any user sees a value and wants to check further information on an attribute with PI Point Data Reference.

  14. Show AD display names rather than User ID

    PI Vision shows who owns a display and who commented on Event Frames, but does so by showing the user's ID in format "Domain\UserID" which is not always readable. It would be better to display the AD user's display name in these places to make it clear who performed the action.

  15. Dynamic connectors between objects

    Similar to other diagram tools available, please make it possible to draw one line between any two items on a display, and snap to them, so that they move if the object does etc.

    It would also be really useful if these were aware of each other and could "jump" over each other. It's currently a very time consuming process to draw line after line and work out a way of showing where two pipes overlap rather than join.

  16. PI Vision Trend: Option to Display Full AF Attribute Path in Trend Legend

    Currently in a PI Vision Trend you can only see the full Attribute Path by hovering over the attribute name in the legend. If the attributes have differently named parent elements, then the legend will show the Parent Element and attribute name only, it will not show the parent element's parent element or more than that. If the parent elements are named the same, then the PI Vision trend will only show the Attribute name. For example, in the attached image there is a trend with 2 attributes named "Attribute", the first one has the following path: "\AARVM1\854090\Parent1\Child 1.1\Child 1.1.1|Attribute",…

  17. Single Sign-On (SSO) using claims authentication in PI Vision

    Integration with enterprise ‘non-windows’ (claims) authentication systems.

    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 should be able to be integrated with their chosen SSO system.

  19. Enhance adhoc URL parameter to create multiple symbols

    Update the ad hoc URL functionality in PI Coresight to be able to create multiple symbols based off multiple data items defined in the URL. The current behavior in PI Coresight limits ad hoc symbol creation to one trend containing all data items defined in the URL.

    Note: This was previously Enhancement 82942.

  20. Support exporting data from Events Table symbol

    As a PI Vision user, when I use the export data option for display, data from all symbols should be exported. In addition to the currently-supported time series data, this should also include Event Frames from the Events Table symbol.
