Seeq R22 features reflect increased collaboration across large organizations.
The big changes in R22 include item-level permissions, significant processing speed increases, and additional collaborative features.
Facilitate Enterprise-Level Deployments
Enables you to control permissions for individuals and groups throughout the organization. For organizations seeking to allow only certain users access to given data, you can now configure permissions on:
- Calculated items created within an Analysis (e.g. Signals, Conditions, Scalars, Histograms, Scorecard Metrics, Formulas, CSV Imports, etc.) and External Calculations.
- Entire data sources, assets in an asset hierarchy, and/or individual data points from the data source.
- Folders, Analyses, Topics, etc. (as in previous versions)
You can give users 'Read/Write' (edit) access, or 'Manage' access to any of these items, as you would for Folders and Analyses. The user will be notified of the restricted access via a notification banner and an alert icon by the item in the details pane.
Seeq Integrated Security has several important benefits, including enabling you to give data access to only those that need it, facilitating data control compliance and data governance. Finally, Integrated Security simplifies and tightens management of access settings. Using permissions Groups and Folder Inheritance, most access control is done automatically; so, as users change roles and move to new positions, you can simply change Group membership to keep up-to-date on permissions.
Inherited Permissions & Historian Integration
- Child items, analyses, and folders will inherit parent permissions.
- Set permissions at the highest level practical for ease of use.
- Integrate the permissions already set on your historian.
- Seeq honors PIPoints permissions.
- Use a connector property transform to set the security string.
Permissions are not automatically transferred to items derived from the restricted item. However, you don’t have to set permissions on every single item, as item permissions are by default inherited from the analysis that contains the item, or from a parent asset tree or data source. If you want a child item, such as data calculated in a worksheet, to have different permissions than the parent, you can turn off permission inheritance.
This inherited permission system makes it more convenient to control access at the highest level of organization appropriate for your situation.
Scope controls where a calculated item may be found via item search; scope con
- Default: Items are only searchable within the analysis in which they were created.
- Global: Searchable by any user with permission to the item.
- Control an item’s scope in the ‘Item Properties’, under ‘Scope.’
- 'Manage' permission to the item is needed to change an item’s Scope.
Note: Use caution, as setting the Scope to ‘global’ cannot be undone.
Multi-User Awareness (Available in R21.0.44.00 and later)
The new Multi-User Awareness feature notifies you when others are working on the same Analysis or Organizer Topic, facilitating collaboration across your organization.
In an Analysis or Organizer Topic, an eyeball icon now appears in the upper right of the screen when other users are viewing the same Analysis or Topic. If more than one other person is sharing, the number of other users will appear at the bottom of the eyeball icon. Click on this icon to list the other user(s) viewing the current page. This icon is also available on each Worksheet within an Analysis or Document within an Organizer. Hovering over the eyeball shows whether each other user is Viewing, Editing, and Presenting so that you can discern whether parallel users are able to make changes that could impact your work.
Improved Analytical Tools
Scatterplot Coloring and Trendlines (available in R21.0.44.00 and later)
Scatterplot now enables users to:
- Filter to display data only within certain Conditions
- By default, Scatterplot shows all data in the selected date range. Filter by clicking the Filter button above the Display Pane.
- Color by Condition, Capsule, or Signal Value
- Color a specific Capsule: Select the Capsule in the Capsule Pane.
- Color an entire Condition: Click the Color button.
- Shade by the value of another Signal, where light shades indicate low values and darker shades indicate higher values: Click the Color button, Choose.
- Overlay Trendlines
- Overlay prediction models or Formula equations with one input. Show as many trendlines as you like.
- For each trendline, the r2 value indicating the fit to the scatterplot data is shown below the Display Pane.
These new features enhance the ability to see relationships between signals and between signals and trendlines, and to find and highlight periods of interest in the context of signals.
See the Scatterplot tutorials in Seeq University for more detailed instructions on how to zoom and navigate, use color, filter data, and add trendlines in Scatterplot.
