It currently takes more effort to follow OSIsoft's recommendation of setting minimum permissions for all PI service accounts than it is to use fewer service accounts with more permissions.

To help steer PI administrators in the right direction, please bundle the PI Data Archive with one PI Identity for every non-deprecated PI programs and assign them minimum permissions in the Database Security table by default.

This way, it is easier to simply use the built-in minimum-permission PI Identities than it is to create a new PI Identity that encompasses multiple programs.
