    Also, most pages that this page links to have their own problems (e.g. images not loading, buttons everywhere).

    Even though the PI Interface Configuration Utility is not deprecated, I feel that it should be excluded from the starter PI Identities, since it would require permissions to the PI Module Database, which is deprecated. The PI Interface Configuration Utility helps with but is not necessary for configuring PI Interfaces.

    I should have said "starter" instead of "built-in". I feel that these PI Identities should still be deletable but come with the PI Data Archive preconfigured with minimum permissions in the Database Security tables.

    I realize that a single PI Data Archive can deal with multiple instances of a product, but this will at least be a good start and a step in the right direction.

    This suggestion also applies to the PI Asset Framework, similar to the suggestion linked below:

    PI Adapters are advertised as being available for Linux, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux and CentOS are Linux distributions, so I'm not sure what the issue is.

    The part of the PI Interface For OPC HDA user guide that I reference is:
    https://docs.osisoft.com/bundle/pi-interface-for-opc-hda/page/_sk_read-only-and-read-write-interfaces.html

    Also, RDBMS can be removed from my examples, since it now has an equivalent PI Adapter.

    I should also mention that PI ACE and PI ProcessBook have official end-of-support dates:

    If this suggestion cannot be completed, then the PI ICU should be deprecated, or at least its use should be discouraged. As much as I prefer the PI ICU's user-friendliness over writing batch files manually, the latter requires fewer permissions and so is more secure.* I'm glad to see that, as of late 2020, the PI ICU is not included in PI Interface install kits going forward.

    *Specifically, the PI ICU requires all of the permissions required when you write batch files manually, plus read access to PIDBSEC and read and write access to PIModules and certain branches of the PI Module Database.

    Czuprynski, PI ACE is deprecated in favour of the PI Analysis Service (see this: https://pisquare.osisoft.com/s/article/000036664). I've never used PI ACE before, so I can't tell you if the PI Analysis Service has all of the functionality of PI ACE.

    If we REALLY wanted to kill the PI Module Database, we could always set up our PI Interfaces without the PI ICU, but it would be harder than when we do use the PI ICU. I don't understand why the PI ICU needs to store a separate copy of the configuration settings in the PI Module Database. The settings are already contained in the batch file and PI ICU will even complain when the batch file and the PI Module Database don't match.

    I wonder if the "plotvalues not supported" suggestion is related to this fairly recent question, which involves only 2 OSIsoft employees:

    In the meantime, you can use these:

    I wonder if it's because you're not associated with any site. Maybe the question linked below is relevant to your case:

    This suggestion should be moved here:
    https://feedback.osisoft.com/forums/555148-pi-server?category_id=181228

    PI Notifications already has a feature to take a screenshot of a PI Vision display at the time that it sends, and clicking on the screenshot brings you to the PI Vision display. PI ProcessBook is deprecated in favour of PI Vision.
