In the old version of coresight it was possible to export displayed data to Excel. I don't seem to be able to find that option in the new version of Coresight (2016). Any idea if this is still possible?
Thanks in advance!
From the release notes:
The Export Data feature, which exported data for the data sources on the current display in an Excel supported XML format, is not supported in PI Coresight 2016.
Good question. I thought there was, but can't find that option in neither the documentation nor CoreSight2016 itself...
One of the way to achieve download function is creating Custom Symbol.
From Custom Symbol, you can get snapshot or plot data. So you can download these.
Though if you want to get summaries values, you need to call PI Web API from Custom Symbol.
Also remember that PI Coresight Custom Symbol is still CTP(Comunity Technical Previw) version.

I created sample. See following.
