I have created a few fixed attributes in AF and when I open the element template in Coresight I can see these fixed values as well as my tags and calculated items. Is there a way of masking attributes out in Pi Explorer or somewhere else?
Sorry, currently there is no way to mask out attributes in PI AF. We have had this request a number of times and are currently working on a solution. As you suggest, the new feature will depend on a future release of PI AF that will provide a "flag" that can be used by PI Coresight, or other PI clients, to distinguish attributes that should not be displayed. Once this flag is available PI Coresight will automatically hide those attributes that are flagged in PI AF.
Thanks Tom, good to know, I will stop looking now.
No Problem. I should have mentioned, there is a current feature that can help things a little. PI Coresight will group attributes by category when displayed in the search pane. You could assign your fixed attributes to the category "zConstants", for example, to group them all together and sort them at the bottom of the display list. That would at least make them less awkward to work around.
