  1. Support Silent (Unattended) Installation and configuration to ease cloud deployment

    Please provide a silent installation capability for PI Integrators. A preferred implementation would be a command line approach (as opposed to a silent ini). This allows for the install to be execute via a command prompt or via PowerShell where configuration settings are passed as command line arguments as is done currently with the integrated PI Server install kit. An ability to export the command syntax from the PI Integrator install kit would be an added bonus. (Example of the specific implementation can be found on page 294 of the PI Server 2018 Installation and Upgrade Guide.)

  2. Allow configurable publish target timeout

    If the Integrator encounters a timeout writing data to a publish target, it would be nice to be able to configure this timeout in the Integrator's configuration file (%PIHOME64%\Integrators\BA\CAST.UI.WindowsService.exe.config). It is currently not possible for the user to specify this timeout for writing to a publish target.

  3. Sign up for updates on the PI AF Server for new event frames

    Currently, the PI Integrator for BA 2018 will add rows for event frames ending within the scheduled update time range. It would be better if the PI Integrator signed up for updates on the database and gets a list of all new or modified event frames to handle the cases where event frames are closed with an end time in the past that is not covered by the run period anymore.

  4. Provide support for Element Attribute with Value Retrieval Method by time Not Supported when requesting sampled data with an interval

    When retrieving AF attributes with a by Time Range setting of Not supported, the integrator will not return the data for the intervals as defined by the Query.

  5. Announce to user that current browser is unsupported

    This request applies to any OSIsoft product that requires a web browser: If certain browsers or browser versions are not supported by an OSIsoft product, the browser version should be detected and an error message shown to the user so they know to use a different browser or version.

  6. Send timestamps to esri ArcGIS along with values

    As a PI admin I would like to be able to optionally send through the timestamps of attributes to esri ArcGIS so that my end users can be sure that the data they are seeing in maps is current.

  8. Lock or rename file when actively writing to file

    We are using file target to move data into a system that PI Integrator does not support writing to directly. We have a script that moves the files PI Integrator creates to our other system, but we need a way to tell when the Integrator has finished writing to that file. The Integrator should either lock the file it is writing to or have a processing naming pattern similar to UFL.

  9. Send Notification When Publish Job Complete

    Not sure this would help with continuous jobs, but for large jobs that are scheduled to run one time (for example: publish last 2 years of history) it would be nice to be able to have PI Integrator send off a notification when the job is complete. In the administration section where you can create publish targets, you could add a section, notification targets, where you could define a group of people to send a notification to by email. In the email I could see it stating that the publish job is complete and maybe some high level stats, but…

  10. Have the option to preserve or change GUID during View import

    During View import process, have the option to preserve or change the View's GUID. This comes into play if multiple Integrators share the same SQL backend; there will be a GUID collision. Use case: split a large view among Integrators (for performance reasons) by using the Export/Import option.

  11. Integrator should have a status page

    The Integrator application server should have a status page ("OK" or "Running") so that clients or load balancers can easily determine whether the site is up or not. This should be implemented when the Integrator eventually supports high availability.

  12. Have PostgreSQL as a output target for PII4BA

    We have customers which neither use Oracle or MSSQL as datawarehouse but have standardized heavily on PostgreSQL as Data Warehouse. We should support this as a target System for PII4BA.

  13. add Output format

    When PI outputs multiple TAGS data to the SQL database, the output table needs only three fields (TAGS, time, value).

  14. Represent the PI real time data in AWS Cloud

    We are planning to represent the PI real time data in AWS Cloud (in any suitable format) using some weblink or any other way.

    We trying to build a Dashboard kind of thing (using Dimensional modelling) to pull equipment data based on Several filter condition on AWS Cloud Solution. I am not actually trying to put PI Server on AWS Cloud,

    Going forward we need the ability to display the AF data related to equipment.

    Will any PI Integrator help me to achieve my goals?

  15. Add AMQP message queuing (like RabbitMQ) as a target to the PI Integrator for BA

    As a BigData analyst, I need to be able to add PI information to a global AMQP message queuing middleware, RabbitMQ being one example amongst others. From this message queue other consumers will have access to PI information along with message queues from other sources for offline or streaming analysis.

  16. AF Audit Trail is incompatible with the Integrator for BA

    Refer to the details of ticket #881602.
    In short, the integrator leads to excessive amounts of Auti records. I see at least 50% of the Audit enties being related to the Integrator, when that is only used very lightly.

    1) it should be documented that these are effectively incompatible
    2) preferred there should be a way such that the Integrator does not cause any audit records for the internal housekeeping of the tool.

  17. PI to Maximo integration

    When PI is used to gather equipment sensor information but Maximo is used for asset management, it would be helpful to have a simple way to get equipment information out of PI and into Maximo.  This would be useful for scheduling preventative maintenance, among other things.

    Thanks for the feedback and ideas so far! At this time, we have commitments and another planned release for PI Integrator for Business Analytics at the end of 2018. We will revisit this idea again after the next release. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or additional feedback.

  18. Select all the attributes in a row

    When I click on the "Select All" button in order to select all the attributes of a view, the child attributes are not automatically selected and it is needed to select them one by one.

    Could it be possible to implement a new version of this functionality in order to facilitate our work?

  19. Support filtering Integrator time-enabled layers by boolean fields

    The customer is displaying grid sensors on their map. The grid sensor error attribute is a boolean, True or False. They would like to be able to filter on a time-enabled layer based on whether the sensors are in error or not.

  20. Enable searching time-enabled layers using Portal map search.

    Searching the time-enabled feature layer data items using portal map search doesn’t work. According to the Esri manual, Hosted feature layers with Query enabled should be searchable.

    Attached is an example of this behavior from case #875453
