Our company's regulator department has asked us to add some non disclosure language to the PI Vision home page. Has anyone done this?
Hi Sam Hoover,
That is an interesting question.
I think the best solution here would be to use a redirect for the homepage following this article - How to change the default PI Vision landing page/homepage? .
Please keep in mind that editing the PI Vision application itself would be a violation of your Product Usage Terms (please see 'Limitations' on pages 6 - 7).
Let me know if you have any follow up questions about this.

Well, that won't be a problem when the next version of PI Vision is out, shouldn't that finally include the option of having custom themes/branding of your installation? As presented in Prague, 20 minutes 20 seconds into this video: https://www.osisoft.com/presentations/a-look-at-the-future-of-pi-system-visualization/
When you are referring to the "next version of PI Vision" are you referring to a version referred to in the presentation you have linked to?
If so, that presentation was made in 2015. Several versions of PI Vision have been released since then.
We do have many versions of PI Vision extensibility which allows for custom symbols to be integrated into PI Vision. If you or someone else is interested in learning more about that, I would be happy to point you to the resources available for that.
As far as the option of having custom themes/branding your own PI Vision installation, this is is a question that would be best suited for a Tech Support case. Please let me know if I can help you start a Tech Support case to address this topic.
This feature is one of those things which seems to be pushed indefinitely into the future versions list. Right now I'm talking about PI Vision 4.x
Branding Sharepoint + webparts solutions was a big deal for us back in the days, and the then-Silverlight-based PI Coresight couldn't really compete. Then came PI Vision, first the renamed Coresight and then the dark-themed solution as presented in Prague, as we know it today. And in addition to extensibility of tool panes and symbols, theming was something we as system integrators as well as many of our clients, had requested for some time already. But after that, the main features having been included would be collections ++ in 2017, and ad-hoc features ++ in 2019.
We're now finding ourselves creating the visualization frameworks outside of PI Vision, either as custom web solutions or through 3rd party web frameworks, and then iframing the displays with all the kiosk modes and hiding of timebars and toolbars, in order to brand the solutions to our customer's requirements.
Okay, I see.
I have informed our current Product Manager for PI Vision about this feedback. He has added your comments from this thread to the following feedback idea - Configure the Color Theme for the PI Vision Chrome . He informed me that you have already voted for this idea and spoken to him about your requests as they relate to color themes in PI Vision.
I'll let the legal/license debate aside (although i think this is a very edge case of "modification"), but why not just include the non disclosure text on all PI Vision displays? There is nothing confidential about the PI Vision Homepage, i have the same as your company...
It's not the tooling that is not to be disclosed, it's the data on the displays. So i typically just ensure this is included in the policies and procedures for creating & updating displays.
I've seen a few regularory demands in strictly regulated industries, but there are limitations. You also don't ask Microsoft to place an NDA text on Excel just because you built an Excel workbook with confidential data, right?
