    Example

    {
    "AM/HV270618" : {
    "Temperature" : "OK",
    "Pressure" : "IMPAIRED",
    "Voltage" : "IMPAIRED"
    }
    }

    Where the first name is the name of the asset to which the following attribute values are to be assigned in the target system. PI Notifications doesnt allow the value of the "name" to be assigned through an AF attribute reference in a template or substitution parameter such as %Element%.

    If the above is valid JSON syntax, then PI should also support this format.

    BadVal should return TRUE if the input argument has a bad quality. So for a PIPoint DR this would be when the value is a digital state (for numeric), or digital state outside the digitalstate set, including system states. For formulas, I would expect that things such as "divide by zero", "all events filtered", "no events", "No data", "unknown attribute" etc etc would be treated as bad values. In the same way as the IFERROR function works in Excel.

    BadVal should do what it says it should, i.e. detect when the argument is bad. This saves a lot of defensive logic to be added to the formulas when it should be a standard function.

    IFERROR equivalent functionality would make validation and formula simpler. Or better still BadVal should work as you would expect. E.g. why doesnt a divide by zero error get picked up by BadVal?

    When displays are built in an offline PI-Dev environment, it is not possible to be able to connect this machine to a customers production environment in order to copy displays from one PI Vision system to another. The previous method of mounting a SQL Server database was better. A different method should be permitted such as exporting/importing in XML format.

    I would also like to have the SUMPRODUCT functionality within PI AF.

    Agree.It is not easy to see what are the current versions of products as the FEED is pretty useless. I end up having to go into each product and the downloads section, but even here the correct versions are not shown. For example AF client MUI latest version is SP2, but the version name shown is 2018 SP2A for everything. Which means you don’t know what has actually changed.
