  1. Expose PI Integrator Counters, Performance, and Status in Perfmon Counters

    Add product specific Perfmon counters for Pi4BA, including specific counters for the Integrator Service, the Data Sync, and Worker processes, beyond the standard windows process data - Such as # active sessions, # views, # of AF syncs, number of views processed per worker, view status.

    There was a previous feedback request that was marked as completed, as now some of this info is currently stored in the statistics table, but there is a separate table by view GUID, and a row of data stored per run per view - and the "stats" column seems to be encoded, making programatic…

  2. Allow PI Integrator to create a new file per publication in Amazon S3

    As a PI Integrator user, I'd like PI Integrator to create a new file per publication in Amazon S3. Currently there is a workaround with Maximum Rows/Objects option in target configuration, but it is not straightforward and cumbersome.

  3. Allow csv file rerun in PI Integrator for Business Analytics

    Allow PI Integrator for Business Analytics to rerun a view that outputs to a csv file. Currently the "Update Data" button is grayed out.

  4. Allow selection of US region for languages other than English

    Users should have the option to select the US as their region for languages other than English.

    Currently, the US does not appear in the region list when selecting French as the language.

    This would be useful for non-English users who wish to maintain an American date format.

  5. Improve source AF migration/rename procedure for PI Integrator for Business Analytics

    current procedure <What are the steps to point the PI Integrator to a new AF server for the element and attribute data that it publishes in views?> requires exporting/importing and republishing every single view, which is tremendous amount of work. On top of this, all existing data tables are dropped and re-created. Please provide a utility or an easy way to accomplish it.

  6. Don't recreate SQL View tables for minor changes

    As a Developer, it would be useful if the SQL tables outputted by the PI Integrator for Business Analytics were not deleted and recreated when minor changes are made to the Integrator View, such as the schedule. This would stop connections/queries being made to these tables from being broken.

  11. SQL Views include a column for time of the export

    I would like a column to be configured for "time of export" For instance, if I have scheduled the periodicity of 1h, I would like the value of the column changed each hour. Currently, this is not possible as I can only add the timestamp (local and EF) but both are giving the same timestamp (EF one), which is not useful.

  12. Allow Configuration of S3 Target Endpoint to Enable S3-Compatible Storage Solutions

    Currently PI hardcodes the AWS S3 endpoint. We would like to target open source S3-compatible storage solutions but are inhibited by the lack of configuration available when setting up the S3 target

  13. Include DST to the sampling interval

    If values in the view are sampled by more than few minutes (12 ours for example) DST change can be an issue, especially if you want to have values exactly at 12 am/pm. It should be optional to include DST into sampling interval.

  14. Allow/Support URL Redirection within PI Integrator internal Webserver

    Currently, PI integrator is setup on a SSL endpoint (443) and responds to https://FQDN, and https:/hostname, it ignores any requests to http:/FQDN (on port 80)

    This request is to allow some URL redirect or URL rewrite mechanism to allow URL forwarding for http://host or even https:/host -> https:/FQDN

    For certs issued with only a DNS of SAN=FQDN (no SAN=Host), having such forwarding would prevent a SSL cert warning about the URL and cert name mismatch.

    Finally, and more generally, given the possibility of future URL updates (like /PICoresight to /PIVision), or even host name moves, the ability to do…

  15. Expose counters to track communication health between PI Integrator Framework and the Worker Nodes

    As a PI Administrator, I need to determine the health of the PI Integrator. I wish to monitor the connection and inter-process behaviour between the integrator and multiple worker nodes. I would like to be able to determine when a worker node disconnects from the integrator framework/host, hangs or becomes unavailable as this will result in no data being published. By monitoring the health and performance of all components of the PI Integrator, I can take a proactive approach to system health and performance.

  16. Disable the functionality deleting existing files when modified view is republished

    When a view that publishes to a file-based publish target is republished, the existing published data files are deleted. Disable this functionality or show a confirmation message before republishing. If a user is unaware of this functionality and republish, all previous work will be deleted.

    Please specify what kind of high availability is requested. For PI Integrator for BA to run in a highly available fashion?

    To support other applications that are highly available? If so, which ones?

  18. Display next run time for scheduled views

    As a PI Integrator user, I would like to view the next run time of my scheduled view to ensure that I have configured it correctly.

  19. Apply the Row Filter criteria in the data preview screen for an Asset View before applying the 100 row cutoff

    Have the row filter that you define in the preview screen for an Asset View be applied before the 100 row cutoff. Currently it applies that cutoff first which means you won't see any rows returned if the columns that have the value you're filtering for are outside of the first 100 rows.

    I need to be able to preview the data that'd be returned and applying the 100 row cutoff first can make that impossible for larger datasets.

  20. Create an intermediate file cache for file writers that do not support append data

    Some targets, for example S3, do not support append data. Therefore, anytime the PI Integrator for Business Analytics tries to update the file, it needs to reupload the entire file with additional data. As a consequence, during publications, the PI Integrator needs to upload the delta files multiple times as opposed to generating the file once locally and uploading it to S3, which would improve performance.
