Hiding PIPoint visibility in DataLink, but still reading the data via AF Attribute

We're using DL2016 and AF 2.7.5 and DA 2015 R2


We have mapped our PIPoint's over to AF Attributes. 

Now, we're wanting to read the data via DataLink using AF Attributes and not via the PI DA Points.  We'd like to hide them, so as to encourage the use of our AF model.

I was hoping this could be accomplished by turning off READ access to the point security, but leaving READ access for the data security.  We've done the same for PIWorld, too.


Unfortunately, DL comes back saying the PI Point can't be found.  I was hoping to read the data (via AF), but hide the PI Point list. 

Is this possible?
