Building a Manual Data Entry Symbol In PI Vision - slide deck

Blog Post created by asorokina Employee on Apr 24, 2019

Hi everyone,


I had a pleasure teaching the "Building a Manual Data Entry Symbol In PI Vision" lab at PI World this year! Now I have the slide deck on my hands that I'd like to share with PI Square folks :-)

There are a lot of resources and throubleshooting guides that can be useful if you step into the adventure of building a manual entry custom symbol. 


Here is a brief overview:

  • PI Vision Extensibility Framework overview
  • Security warning (safety first!)
  • Debugging
  • PI Web API and how to communicate with it from custom symbols
  • Making a basic HTTP request
  • Making a request to send value
  • Adding user interaction logic
  • Troubleshooting or "what can go wrong"



Lab workbook with solutions and virtual environment should be available at Home Page - OSIsoft Learning sometime soon!
