  1. Include root cause data into Notifications message

    Include event frames root cause data into Notifications message. A customer ask about how to include event frames root cause data into notifications message because he has a notification message generated when an equipment fails but to diagnose the cause of fail he has setup a root cause event frame and he needs to see this root cause data into notifications message.

    The current architecture has a 1:1 relationship between the main event frame and the notification rule. The notification rule has no knowledge of the root cause event frame. As a workaround, since the root cause event frame is based on the same EF template as the main EF, you can include additional EF attributes with a time offset as the root cause event frame to capture the information. You can then include these additional attributes in your notification email.

  2. Get the content of a string array in a Notification email

    An AF attribute with a data type of String Array and a data reference of table lookup retrieves multiple values from an imported table (number of rows always vary). Would like to get the content of the string array in the body of the Notification or provide a URL link to a PI Vision display with the content of the string array.

    With the current implementation of PI Notifications, any event frame or referenced element attribute values can be included into a notification email.

    If you’re not able to accomplish that, please contact tech support.

  3. Online Course for PI Notification Rules

    I believe the rather complex process of migrating from the legacy version of PI Notifications to PI Notification Rules and the new paradigm of how they operate deserves an online course in how to migrate, set up, configure, test and improve your new PI Notification Rules.

  4. Ability to change notifications in bulk for delivery channel

    API Rest delivery channel has one format, it is configured for one template. Customer would like to implement it for all of the templates in bulk.

    Two Notification Templates could be linked to two different Analysis Templates that can be linked to two different Event Frame templates. Therefore the options to populate the delivery end point could be different between notification template. SQL stores a GUID in the properties of the delivery format, applying in bulk would also mean copying over GUIDs which would result in the wrong configuration.
