How can we improve PI Integrators?

Allow assets to be filtered based on template inheritance

We currently have Elements built on inherited templates. For example, we have ElementTemplate, which has inherited child templates,  ChildTemplateA and ChildTemplateB.

In PI System Explorer, we can do an Element Search and apply a template filter for ElementTemplate. The results will include any elements based on ElementTemplate, as well as any Elements based on both inherited child templates, ChildTemplateA and ChildTemplateB.

However, when building a shape in the integrator, there is currently no corresponding way to filter based on the parent template, ElementTemplate.

In order to provide a consistent user experience, the PI Integrator for Business Analytics should allow the user to filter in this way.
