  1. Possibility to backfill multiple views in bulk

    When having many configured views it is time consuming to perform backfill after a data outage.
    If a situation occur that require backfilling of data it is most likely that it will affect a mjority of the configured views that are set up. Today we need to go in on each view and perform the backfill. It would be very valuable if i was possible to select the number of views you would like to run backfill on and then select "execute".
    That would be much more effective than enetering 100 views and run backfill on each.

  3. Allow for an IT policy requiring fixed database sizes by optionally preventing the PI Integrator Log database from dynamically shrinking

    As a system administrator working under our IT department's policies, I want to be able to prevent the PI Integrator's Log database from shrinking, so that I can conform to IT policies that require fixed SQL database sizes with the goal of preventing fragmentation.

  4. Scheduled Update Data for Business Integrator

    We would like the ability to "schedule" a reoccurring "update data" write for a PI View. We have several scheduled backfills for processes where data is somewhat delayed (i.e. lab data) but to get the data in the PI View today we need to do a manual "Update Data" each time from the PI BI portal.

  5. Provide an option to only use access control lists to access Azure Data Lake Storage (ADLS) Gen2 containers and directories

    Published on behalf of a customer. PI Integrator for BA currently requires the use of role-based access control (Azure RBAC) to authenticate to the storage account first. With the Storage Blob Data Reader role, it grants read and list permissions to all storage containers and blobs. As a user, I would like to only use Access Control Lists (ACLs) to limit PI Integrator service's permission to a specific container/folder.

  7. Add Esris statistics support on augmented feature layer for ESRI Integrator

    Currently, only GeoServer or Time-Enable layer can be used with Esri Dashboards Statistics such as pie and serial charts. This should also be possible with augmented feature layers.

  8. Export data in rows instead of columns

    Data is usually exported under column headers, but I'd like to know whether it's possible to export data in rows (e.g. tags in one row, values in another row). I can transpose this data in SQL after the fact, but is this possible to do from the Integrator itself?

  9. Allow streaming view for Event Frames in the PI Integrator for Business Analytics

    It would be useful to be able to stream Event Frames via the PI Integrator for BA so that the associated and aggregate data for events can be used in targets.

    This opens the possibility of using Event Frames to identify specific situations, gather the data and then share that data in real-time with other systems so that those systems can make event-based analyses.

  10. Allow Publishing of a Narrow Data Format

    It would be helpful to be able to publish to a narrow format to reduce downstream impact due to the fact that we don't have to change the table structures when the assets change. (flexibility)

  11. Add a "quality tag" to the Integrator jobs that tells the receiving system if the Data source is up or down.

    Having an "up/down" or source-system quality check will help the receiving systems know if the data is flowing or stopped. If destination analytics are using the output of an Integrator and are expecting the latest values to be available in calculations, knowing if the system is down can prevent invalid analyses outputs/calculated values due to missing or stale data.

  12. Provide option to pause a backfill

    PI Integrator views can be backfilled using the Update Data or automatically with the PI Integrator Sync service. Having the ability to pause these backfills could allow users to resume them at a later time if their PI System is experiencing any temporary issues.

  13. Provide prompt whenever data will be deleted by an action

    There are multiple PI Integrator actions that will cause data to be deleted such as Update Data or republishing a view. Whenever data will be deleted by the PI Integrator, a prompt should be returned so users are aware that their actions will result in this.

  14. Allow Configuration of Target Table Name from View for PII4BA

    We have a use case where there is a need to publish data from one PI Integrator instance to multiple environments for IT to run through their dev / test / prod on the datalake setup. Our targets are SAP HANA instances, but this problem applies to all targets as it is inherent in the setup of the Integrator that the table name created is the same as the view name.

    Right now this requires the view names to change between targets and the view name is the name of the database table that is created. I would like to…

  15. Drop support for TLS 1.0 & TLS 1.1

    Please drop support for TLS 1.0 & TLS 1.1. These have been known to be insecure protocols for a while now, are not supported by modern browsers, and have been superseded by TLS 1.2 & TLS 1.3.

    "Compatibility with older browsers" is not a good reason to keep them around, since even Internet Explorer supports TLS 1.2 & TLS 1.3. Anyone using an older browser should upgrade for their own good.

  16. Add support for TLS 1.3

    TLS 1.2 is the highest version of TLS that PI Integrators currently support. Please add support for TLS 1.3 to make the PI Integrator web pages load faster and more securely.

  17. Add support for HTTP/2

    The PI Integrator web pages currently use only HTTP/1.1. Please add support for HTTP/2 so that these web pages will load faster. This is especially important for mobile devices, which are generally already slower compared to desktop or laptop computers.

  18. Minify the HTML, CSS, and JavaScript code of PI Integrators

    The code for the web pages of PI Integrators is currently not minified. Please minify it so that the pages load faster, especially on mobile devices, and so that the network traffic is reduced.

    To be clear, to avoid the extra processing time of minification during the use of the PI Integrators, the code should be minified to begin with. That is, PI Integrators should be released with pre-minified code and minification should not be a separate step.
