Exercise 4 - Once you have viewed the video Setup Custom Security on PI Points for Both Users & Applications, use PI Builder to give 'All Company' and 'PI Vision' read access to all of your PI Points on PI Server. Additionally, change the PI Point permissions for any PI Point that starts with "Tank1" on PISRV01 to allow the Consultants to see these points.


Now look for PI Points and PI Data by running PI System Management Tools as either pischool/iuser or pischool/sconsultant. Can pischool/iuser now see the points from all three of the tanks? Can pischool/sconsultant see only the Tank1 data? (hint: search for tag name: Tank1*)


If you are not using the Configuring PI Data Archive Security - Cloud Environment, you can use any non-production test tags such as 'sinusoid' and 'cdt158' or create your own. You should be able to configure security such that one user can see a large number of your PI Points, while a second user's permissions are restricted to read a small subset of your PI Points.
