I created an Element/Analysis in Pi AF that gives me a boolean tag, but it refuses to work in Pi Vision for multistate.
(I've created several others that work just fine)
Is there additional information in PI Vision Messages (the icon left hand from your user account showing in the upper right)?Can you verify with the admin page (/pivision/admin) if there are any errors.
No, no other information.
And I do not have admin rights.
Ok, let's approach this differently than. Can you share the configuration of the Attribute giving you the error as it shows in PI System Explorer?
Does this boolean use a different AF enumeration set / PI digital state set than other tags that do work?
Here is a Boolean I created today, it works fine.
Pi AF Attributes
Here is the one that gives me the error.
The only difference is the first one above is from a template, the one below, that will not work is not.
The other one I created that works is not from a template either.
I'll be darn, it just started working...So I guess it was a server error that corrected itself?
After seeing the other threads you've started I believe the issue was more a configuration issue. The PI Data Archive supports a Digital point type which is a more advanced representation of a Boolean.
There are a bunch of good videos available at OSIsoft's Youtube Learning channel which could help you to get familiar with some basic concepts. Some of the videos are pretty old but the basics haven't changed. With regards to Digital point type, I recommend the following videos to you:
I guess I have some confusion as to why there is a Boolean choice for type in Pi AF if the Data Archive can't use it.
The boolean type is supported by SQL Server, which is the backend for AF. In AF, you can configure an attribute that is NOT a PI Point, i.e. static attribute, table lookup, formula, etc. There are use cases where a boolean data type is useful even though it's not a PI Point.
This post can be removed, problem is solved.
The idea behind the Community is to build a public discussion forum with questions and answers that can benefit all users (both now and in the future). As such, rather than deleting posts when a solution is reached, the post is saved and is searchable so that others with the same or a similar question can benefit over time.Also, I noticed this question is posted in the Dev Club forum, which is geared more toward topics concerning development of applications with our Developer Technologies (i.e., programming). Since the topic of this post is more of a PI configuration question, it would be a better fit in the All Things PI forum. Posting questions in the forum where they are the best fit helps you get the most relevant information to your question and also makes it easier for others to find things on the Community. If you can please keep this in mind for future posts, it would be most appreciated. Thanks for being a part of the Community!
I guess I'm used to FB, deleting questions to keep things cleaned. Yes, since I"m new to all of this I was not sure where to post. I best guessed.
