  2. Trend: Invert Scales

    I want to configure and invert the number scales on the y-axis of a trend so 0 is on top and 1000s are on the bottom so that I'm looking at drilling drilling depth data, the traces trend downward, just like the drill.

    The PI Vision 2017 R2 release included improvements to maintain synchronization between the asset dropdown menu and the display asset context.

  5. Not equal option in Event Name

    I would like to have a not equal Event Name option in Event Frame search  in  PI Vision. Currently, we using  event  frame attribute value in the search but we also like to  use not equal to a event name with  wildcards as well.

  6. Multistate Text Blink Functionality

    When multistate blink is configured for text, the text itself does not blink alone.  A box is generated to appear behind the text and blinks along with it.  Can there be an option to only have the text blink?

  7. Make popup trend show value and traits on the same scale

    If I double-click on a multistate symbol, I get an ad-hoc display showing the value and all it's thresholds. This is great except that the trend is multi-scale, which makes the threshold lines useless. If an ad-hoc trend is showing a values and its limits, they should all share the same scale (and possibly be differentiated by line-style or colour intensity instead of colour hue)

  8. The ability to plot individual sparklines from a table

    Currently if you try to plot a sparkline from a large table you get all the lines not the one you have selected.

    It would be more convenient if:
    Users can select certain row(s) in the table and pop out an ad hoc trend for those data items only;
    Or enable users to hide / show traces in the ad-hoc trend.

    Single-clicking on a sparkline in a table will open a popup trend containing only the data item in that row of the table. Double-clicking in another column of the table will also bring up a popup trend for that row’s data item.

    In the popup trend (and for trends on displays), traces can be hidden by right-clicking and choosing Hide Trace.

    In PI Vision 2019, traces can be hidden and shown with a single-click in both the popup trend and in the new ad hoc workspace using the checkbox contained in the table that is present in both of these areas.

  9. URL paramters

    I wish I can use URL parameters(kiosk mode, hidetoolbars etc) across all coresight displays and not just on Ad-hoc display.

    COMPLETED  ·  Tom LeBay responded

    URL parameters like Kiosk mode, HideToolBar, HideTimeBar, etc., work across all PI Coresight displays; displays created with the editor, Ad-hoc displays, and imported PB Displays.

  10. Specify a domain account for the search crawler

    The default account used for the Crawler service to index the allowed service might not have the correct permissions to create the index. If this occurs, the PI Coresight Admin needs to open the Services applet and change the password and restart the service. Specifying an appropriately privileged user account during installation mitigates this problem.

    Note: This was previously Enhancement 113344.

  11. Supply a "master asset" URL parameter

    This enhancement request is to be able to supply an AF asset path as a querystring parameter in a Coresight URL to allow that asset to be applied to the symbols on the display which share that asset's template.

    Note: This was previously Enhancement 62283.

  13. Alignment of values within an element

    Ability to left, centre and right align text so that when values change, they stay aligned with sibling elements. For instance, a value of 1,000psi going down to 0psi will align itself back to the left but it would be preferable to align to the right so that units line up.

    PI Vision 2017 R2 introduced the ability to horizontally align the text within value symbols (left, center or right)

  14. Small scroll increment of trend time in PI Vision

    Need to be able to make smaller than 1 interval change on time scroll.  Example: if displaying 1H of data, user can scroll 1H increments.  I would like to scroll in 1H increments or 15 minute increments.  this help navigating to right time period.

    Scrolling time in small increments can be done if you mouse over the bottom portion of a trend. When doing this, your mouse cursor will change to a hand that can be used to drag the time range forward or backwards in time in small increments. The increment is determined by how far you drag. This functionality was introduced in the 2016 version.

  15. multiscale: fix scale manually

    Hello,

    When I switch to "multiple scale" there is no possibility to add the values per scale manually!

    In PI Vision, it’s possible to adjust the scale minimum and maximum values whether you’re using single or multiple scales. When multiple scales are enabled, you can see a unique scale for each trace on the trend. You can manually adjust the scale for each trace in the “Trace Options” within the Trend Format configuration pane.

  17. Hide timebar passing through hyperlinks

    We may want to hide the timebar for certain displays, but maintain it for others.  Currently, it seems like all hyperlinks pull in the URL modifiers from the source location.  So if I want, for example, a timebar on my second-level displays, I need to have it on my first-level displays.

    The ability to control whether URL parameters like hidetimebar are passed in a display link was implemented in the PI Vision 2017 R2 release.

  18. remove element relative from pi vision screens

    Is there any option from admin to disable the element relative display from PI Vision screens?
    We are facing issues even when we don’t change it or touch it. Sometimes it is changing automatically and without touching or selecting another element.
    We are building PI Vision screens that contains several elements like Boiler 1,2,3,4,… that are using element templates and we need to show different boilers in the same trend and page. it is changing automatically the Asset Boilers and we have to remap them in our displays and again it will change automatically for some reason.
    Is there any…

    The PI Vision development team has completed work to allow the configuration of related assets for displays in PI Vision 2017 R2, including the ability to disable the related assets selector on a display. Upgrade to PI Vision 2017 R2 to take advantage of this and other new features. You can read about what’s new in PI Vision 2017 R2 in the release announcement: https://techsupport.osisoft.com/Troubleshooting/Releases/RL01278

  19. Allow uploading images larger than 2 megabytes

    Right now, users can only upload images up to 2 megabytes in size; while I realize that there are reasons for this, it'd be great to be able to configure that size cap through a web.config file setting, for example.

  20. CTP feature XY Plot and Eventstable documentaion

    In PI Vision 2017 documentation, CTP feature xy plot and eventstable can be unlocked via following command:
    AFDiag /FeatureFlag=

    However, this command only works upto.... more recent AF Server versionss. There is a need to know for PI Administrators which AF Server version is required to use XY Plot and EventsTable from PI Vision 2017+.

    The requirement of AF Server version was added to the admin guide. Besides, the symbols are no longer in CTP; they are now officially supported.
