  1. How to share with other Groups in PI Vision display

    Current status:
    For example:
    username: abc
    if abc is mapped to PI identity called A, then abc can only share display with this identity
    if you want to share with AF identity called B, then abc needs to be mapped to B identity
    I would like directly share display with other identily,it doesn't need to
    be mapped to specific identity

  2. Have an option in AF Security to not pass down database security to newly created objects

    Use case: We want to give a user read access to a single element. All future elements created inherit the Database level Security, meaning the user will also have read access to all future created elements.

  3. Add configurable defaults for PI Point "Pointsecurity" and "Datasecurity"

    Read access to the PIPOINT table is required for most identities. Pointsecurity and Datasecurity currently use the settings on the PIPOINT table as the default. New points will generally give read access to most identities because of these defaults. This makes it difficult to configure an identity with read access to some points, but not all points (common when giving external contractors limited access).

    Additionally, for best practice security, buffer identities need read access to Pointsecurity, but read/write access to Datasecurity. There is currently no way to configure this combination as a default.

    Adding two new tables (ex. PTSECDEFAULT and…

  4. Move Auditviewer function away from local PI System access

    I want to run the Auditviewer function as a unprivileged remote user, moving away from the current requirement to run as a local user on the PI Data Archive Server.  This is so I can minimize security risk associated with local user access on a Windows server.

  5. Auditviewer separation of roles

    I want to separate the security roles between 1) the ability to run an Auditviewer report and (potentially) associate a change control record to a configuration change and 2) the PI Admin Role in order to minimize security risk.

  6. Claims based authentication

    As a PI Administrator I want to be able to use claims based authentication throughout the PI System so that I can provide a simplified and secure authentication methodology for all my users, including ones using web based applications.
