  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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",…

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Support AF Identities from Multiple Servers

    Currently, only 1 AF server is configured to provide identities for vision display security. Displays can show data from multiple AF servers, which could have different security mappings. It would be nice to be able to pull identities from multiple AF servers for display security that matches the AF security that already exists.

  10. Ability to change the configuration of the Asset drop-down using a URL parameter

    I would like to be able to change the Asset drop-down from a navigation link in a PI Vision display ( in other words to change the configuration of the Context Switching for a display) so that I can reuse an existing display and point it to different search roots with a different asset drop-down.

  11. Wrap text in tables and number formats

    Ability to wrap text headings in tables and asset comparison tables. Ability to set number format (number of decimal points, scientific, $, etc) for values in asset comparison tables.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Event Gantt: Visualize Child Events on Parent Event Gantt Bar

    On the event gantt chart, have the ability to show lines/time markers for the child events in the parent event gantt bar when not expanded. This way the user doesn't need to expand the gantt to get an idea of when the children occurred.

  16. Filter Events Table by Severity

    Would like to be able to filter Events Table using "severity" column, whether above a certain "severity" (>Warning) or selecting individual severity (Warning OR Critical)

  17. Ability to change acknowledge button color

    We are using event frames as alarms and in the event tables having the acknowledge button being green indicates there is no issue, it would be nice to be able to change the color to red or base it on how critical the event is.

  18. Asset Search: Tree View / Structure in PI Vision - Not consistent with other products.

    Not a fan of the Asset Framework tree structure in PI Vision. It needs to work as a tree structure just like PI System Explorer. The setup in Vision is too clunky and is hard to navigate.

    Again, I would like to see the tree structure consistent in all products to mirror System Explorer.

  19. Navigation: Alternate display name for element

    Please allow for having an Attribute tagged as a Display Name for the entire element that would be shown in dialogs like the Switch Asset instead of the Element Name.

    It is reasonable if this had to be indexed to be usable.

    We are aware of the tooltip which helps but its only sometimes useful and does not seem to be sorted alphabetically when the names are identical.

    We have identical element names at the lowest element level with the parent path having more unique name (this is to support creating processbook displays from the parent and being able to…

  20. Navigate to parent of selected element

    In a collection you can use 'Set asset context' to open a new display and show data regarding the selected child element.
    But when you want to use a link\button to navigate back to the previous display you cannot use this functionality. Because it will use in the current (the child) element instead of the parent. When you don't use 'Set asset context' it will open the correct display, but the selected element will be the one used when the display is last saved.

    Notes:
    - The option to open displays in a new tab of the browser is not…
