Ability to search for PI Points used by PI AF attributes
As a user, I want to be able to search for specific PI Points used by PI AF attributes, so that I can easily find where the PI Points are being used.
Searching PI points used in PI AF elements/attributes is very needed feature.
This is a very needed feature to find all the assets that are using a particular tag.
Native way to search in Pi System Explorer if a PI Point is used and where it is used would be very useful.

Here is a similar use-case for those who are trying increase their AF adoption:
Create a way to search for PI Points that are NOT represented anywhere in AF.

In the meantime, I would suggest making a query table in Excel that uses PI OLEDB Enterprise to get the same information. Then you only need to refresh the table to update it rather than import the information all over again.
Now I used PI Builder (in Excel) to download the AF structure and search where tags are used. I would like to suggest an update / addin for System Explore that would allow you find tags and where they are used in the AF structure
This would be very helpful. Currently, I'm doing a Tag Name child attribute so it can be found using the Attribute Search's filter. However, this is very cumbersome.

Customer would like the ability to search in PI System Explorer for a tag, and find all references (attributes linked to that tag) in the database.
I want to search AF element or its child attribute based on PI point. If I know PI point I can search its linked element and attributes in AF.
In pallette option "search by tag" this feature should be provided.
Not only search PI Points but the ability to search for a value of a PI AF attributes. Example if an attribute is an asset type such as a pump, a fan, an agitator, etc. It would be possible to find all the elements that would have an attribute value of "fan".
