PI Vision - Collection including another collection?

Hi all,

 

Big fan of PI Vision collections after their introduction last year. Wondering if there's an answer or a planned enhancement for this feature, because I can't seem to get it working currently.

 

Let's say I have 8 hydro production facilities, and at each facility I have (amongst other equipment) some variable number of pumps.

 

Site ABC

Street Address

Site Contact

Rollup Analysis 1

Pump 1

--> Condition

--> Operating Temperature

--> Run time

Pump 2

--> Condition

--> Operating Temperature

--> Run time

Pump 3

--> Condition

--> Operating Temperature

--> Run time

 

Site DEF

Street Address

Site Contact

Rollup Analysis 1

Pump 1

--> Condition

--> Operating Temperature

--> Run time

Pump 2

--> Condition

--> Operating Temperature

--> Run time

 

etc.

 

 

Obviously, thanks to collections, it is trivial to generate a "site overview" page for one facility - I can have a collection to generate info for X number of pumps, along with a single 'Value' widget for the 'Rollup Analysis 1'. However, I don't seem to be able to find a way to quickly replicate the combined "overview" information for all 8 facilities.

 

I can copy and paste the collection I created earlier 7 times, set the root path for each manually, and add 7 Value widgets manually, but by the time I have done all that, the process involves about 15 steps. I'd love it if I could say to Vision "build me a collection with all facilities, and in that collection include the Rollup Analysis, and a collection of all the pumps, for each site".

 

Am I just wishfully thinking for this feature?

 

Cheers
