Select Components From ID
In perspective We can set a DOMID to any component, it would be awesome to have something like document.getElementByID("MyId").props.text = "Foo and Bar" instead of self.parent.getChild("FlexContainer").getChild("MyId").props.text = "Foo and Bar" this will allow not to depend on component messaging to accomplish the goal of decoupling and shorten the development time. it will not be too efficient ( https://forum.inductiveautomation.com/t/select-elements-components-from-id-instead-of-hierarchical/82851/2?u=subin_adhikari ) but it certainly decreases the dev time.
Cancel Perspective reports
when a client runs a report if it takes to long there just going to click away from that screen/ view and try again this can and has lead to some problems for us where we notice stuff running slowly then look ands see we have 4 reports trying t generate for the last 4 hours but none of them ever finish because the user clicked off there view. now when on the project there is a cancel reports option but im hoping we can get the same option added to perspective so we can stop the report with scripting when ever they clicked off the view
Tags Cross Reference
It would be nice to have some sort of report that shows where all the tags are being used
Configurable Context Path for Ignition
It would be very helpful to have a supported Kafka Connector to integrate Ignition with Kafka for Tag History / Alarms / Audit Events etc.
Auto Ranging Charts for Reports
Right now there is auto scaling as an option on the Axes for the Time series chart but that ether does it for both low and high or nether it would be nice if we could have only the high value auto scale and the low be fixed or vice versa
Ability to zoom on a client at runtime
I have worked on projects where the customer wants to see a drawing with statuses for all units in a facility, approximately 1000 units. The user would be able to use the mouse wheel or buttons to zoom/pan the screen to more easily determine which unit is having problems. Currently you can zoom in on the Ignition designer using the zoom slider at the bottom of the screen. Could we have some scripting methods for zooming in and out on a client window?
Perspective - Drawing Tools
Add basic drawing tools to Perspective (lines, circles, squares, etc.). If feasible, it would be fantastic to be able to group as well.
Power chart searh option
An search option for tags is needed. It can be really hard to find the tags you want to trend, when you don't know the tag path in the tag browser in the power chart
