It would be great to have menu/link/button or something in the PI System Explorer/Library/Element Templates/Analysis Template tab, that leads to the Analysis Management tab with automatically set filter conditions to selected analysis template.

In response to Stephen Kwan, "There are currently two situations where..."
1) Difficult question. It might be logical to send notifications for brand new events. I mean, if there were no eventframe before backfill, but the backfill generated a new eventframes, the notification is reasonable for them.
I think the biggest issue with auto-backfill is when new event-frames are generated after an AF Server restart or Analysis service restart. In these cases a duplicated notification is sent of every active EvenFrames.
2) Yes, usually we need to make manual backfill due to modifications in templates or calculations.
3)The easiest solution would be if we could turn on/off notification sending during backfilling, where I can select if I want to delete previous data.
We have made a workaround for the issue, and it is working properly.
We have separated AF structures for different functionalities, solutions.
So we have created a "Notifications Enabled" attribute in the root element of each solutions. (Non configuration item!)We have also created a global "Global Notifiaction Enabled" attribute in a separated AF root element. (Non configuration item!)Lastly we have created a formula attribute in each structure "Notifications Active" = min("Notifications Enabled", "\Config|Global Notifiaction Enabled"). This attribute is zero if the notifications are turned off globally or they are turned off for the given structure with the aforementioned attributes.We have put a formula reference eventframe attribute "xyz Notifications Active" in each EventFrames, that generate Notification. The reference points to the "Notifications Active" element attribute of the given structure.After these steps we just had to modify the notification rules to check the "xyz Notifications Active" eventframe attribute;
With this solution we can turn off the notifications for a given structure if we want to make template modifications or manual backfill for a given solution.
And our IT department can turn off the notifications globally if they need to restart the whole server.gmucsina shared this idea ·
