  2. Improve Paging on PI Integrator Website

    When Loading PI Integrator website, the page loading time is proportional to the number of view. Reaching +200 views, we are waiting several minutes and using Integrator remotely, frontend is loading too much data.

  3. Shorten the wait time for recovering output streams

    Currently I need to wait for 7 days to recover output streams from deleted views. Please shorten the wait time.

  4. Ability to edit free-form views and keep custom properties

    Right now, when adding new attributes to a view, custom properties are lost when the field is updated. A workaround is to add custom properties when adding new items. This works for a few items, but can be quite cumbersome when adding a large amount. It would be nice to be able to update the view and keep the custom properties at the same time.

  5. Reduce the number of API calls required when publishing to AWS S3

    Currently, the PI Integrator makes at least one API call per shape match when publishing views to the AWS S3 target. However, this results in increased cost (AWS S3 tiers have API quotas) and difficulties in implementing the AWS Lambda service when it is configured to trigger on new bucket actions.

  6. Allow greater control of the streaming view schema

    Currently streaming views in the PI Integrator for Business Analytics have a custom schema inside of initial curly brace's {}. Streaming views should have an option to encapsulate these messages inside of a square brace [] which is required for some downstream applications.

  7. A report that shows the elements, attributes, PI points, publish targets, etc. used in all views.

    As an end user/PI System admin, I need to get a list of views, elements, attributes, tags, target and run frequency for all views in PI Integrator. When the target is a SQL server, I also need to know the database and table name.

    Currently this information may be collected from different places, e.g. using the PI Builder and AF configuration database, or the Integrator backend SQL database, but it is a tough manual search process.

  8. Allow users to save/copy preview data for PI Integrator views

    My downstream coworkers generally like to see the format of an example data set in order for them to be able to shape and manipulate the data within Azure Datawarehouse/IOT hub. Right now, I can view the data, but can't export or even copy and paste it. It's a minor request, but it'd be great to be able to copy and paste the preview data .

  9. Add security parameters to PI Integrator for Esri ArcGIS

    As an IT administrator, I would like PI Integrator for EsriArcGIS to support security-related configuration parameters so that I can protect my organization against cyber security threats. Some examples of parameters we are looking for are:
    <RequestLimits> element, specifically the maxAllowedContentLength, maxQueryString, and maxUrl attributes.

    <headerLimits> to configure the type and size of header your web server will accept.

    connectionTimeout, headerWaitTimeout, and minBytesPerSecond attributes of the <limits> and <WebLimits>

    <httpCookies httpOnlyCookies="true" requireSSL="true" />

    An attribute to redirect HTTP traffic to HTTPS

  12. Add the ability to export/import views via automation or command line

    The current feature in PII4BA 2020 to export/import views requires the user to go into the UI, connect to the target AF Server/DB and then import the (json) file in question.

    It would be ideal to be able to perform the same operation through a command line or REST API using arguments to select the AF Server/DB or other required configuration. This would greatly ease the operation of bulk loads and make the whole process more seamless to the end user.

  13. Have the option with streaming views to only send updated values to the target

    In PI Integrator for Business Analytics 2020 Patch 1 (2.3.0.426) streaming views has the option to send messages when any selected key values are updated, but this publishes the complete message to the target, including attributes which have not updated.

    It should be possible with the "any" message trigger to only send the updated values to the publish target. This option to only send updated data could be listed as one of the Value Options when configuring the message content.

  15. Add a toggleable switch for text file targets to allow the ID Column

    With previous versions when you would create a text file view, the first column would be an index/ID column numbering each row. With upgrade to PI Integrator for Business Analytics 2020 the column is no longer there as a part of the enhancements released in this version.

    One of the users of a view has a system already configured to account for the ID column and has requested that I put the ID column back in one of my views.

    For this use case, it would be useful to have the ID column be toggleable when I configure the text…

  16. Allow connecting to Read-only Domain Controller

    As a IT administrator, I would like to be able to configure the PI Integrator for Business Analytics to allow connection to my read-only domain controllers (RODC) so that the PI Integrator for Business Analytics is in line with the Windows Active Directory best practices that we employ for other applications in our organization. Currently, the PI Integrator for Business Analytics will use DNS queries based on its own server's domain to determine to which DCs it should connect, and this returns writeable DCs.

  17. Azure IoT Hub: Allow specifying contentType and contentEncoding in the message system properties

    Certain data applications, such as Azure Blob storage, require the contentType and contentEncoding to be specified within the message header. In order to use these applications, the PI Integrator should allow the two to be configurable during target creation.
