  2. Create non-clustered index via the Integrator front end

    Our end users tend not to have SQL access. We would like to allow them to create clustered indexes to increase the performance of a SQL query on the target view.

  3. Preserve view model when PI AF Server is changed

    As a PII4BA user I need to create same views pointing to different PI AF Servers, when I change the AF Server, the view model is lost. It should check if templates and attributes exists on this AF Server, and if it is consistent, preserve the view model.

  4. Delete old rows

    As a PII4BA user I need to maintain on the target database only the data corresponding to the specified time range, older data should be deleted when new data is inserted.

  5. Specify desired logging level

    As a PII4BA administrator I would like to specify a logging level so I can filter which logs I want to store and which ones I don't want to store in the database.

  6. Support for "BoD" (beginning of day) in Start Time End Time

    As a user who creates daily reports with the Integrator, it would be great if setting the period had a function similar to AF's Analysis "BoD" which returns the beginning of a day regardless of time input so that it will avoid confusion and ease the dependency between the job running time and the selection period.  Currently if I want a job to get data from midnight to midnight at 1AM everyday, I have to use Start time *-25h and End time *-61m (to avoid 2 values of the daily interpolation).

  7. Sort View Statistics tab

    As a user, I'd like to utilize the columns in Statistics tab more effectively by being able to sort on the column so that I can sort by duration, error count, etc.

  8. Save sort/filter conditions

    As a user, I would like to persist the filters I have on the My Views page so that I can quickly check on my views and see their statuses in a logical fashion.  Right now, I can sort by certain columns, but if I navigate to another page and come back to My Views, the sort is lost.

  9. Send a notification if a view fails to publish successfully

    As a user, I would like a notification or email when a view did not succeed so that I can take action to backfill or triage the situation.  Currently I can only use the Last Run Time and it takes a long time to verify when each view's expected run time matches with the actual Last Run Time.  The Integrator does show an error icon when a view fails, but if the next run of the view succeeds, the icon disappears and the user has no way of knowing unless the user checks the 3rd party destination.

  10. Add support for "Limits" in PI System Explorer

    As a user of AF, we would like it to be the system of record for our data.  For some of our KPIs, we would like to leverage the Limits feature in PI System Explorer and have the ability to add those limits to the Integrator.  Then we can leverage the limits downstream when creating our dashboards to show if a KPI is below or above a limit.

  11. Show a note for the user in Preview Data that only the first 100 rows are shown

    At first I thought the Integrator only retrieved 100 rows of data.  It would be nice to know that the actual publication is not reflective of the preview and that the page is limited to the first 100 rows of results.

  12. Save the original First Run Time field when modifying a view

    When modifying a view that has already ran successfully, the First Run Time is not preserved.  The last time I configured it, it was set to a future date at 1AM.  When I modify it again, the field is populated with '*'.  It would be nice to have the last configuration saved even if it's not valid, so that I have the context of what I last configured.

  14. Allow the user to customize the decimal separator

    Currently, the only available decimal separator is the period (.). In some cases, the customer may want to use other decimal separators such as the comma (,). It would make sense for the decimal separator to follow the convention of the region and language selected in the UI, or have an option in the menu set it to something custom.

  15. Support SAP HANA multitenant database

    We would like the Integrator to support connecting to SAP HANA multitenant databases. The SAP ODBC writer used for PI Integrator for SAP HANA assumes that <port> takes the form 3<instance number>15 as stated in the HANA v2.0 SPS00 documentation. Since this is not true for multitenant databases, PI Integrator for SAP HANA does not currently support multitenant databases.

  16. Add a generic ODBC target

    Add a target that points to a DSN or where you can specify the connection string (including the driver) this would allow to insert in any database that has an ODBC driver for Windows.

  17. 'Download Logs' should download all logs within the specified time range

    Currently it only downloads logs that are loaded in the display pane. In order to get it to download everything, I have to scroll down until everything is loaded.

  18. Allow for default AF DB/Server to be reflected when building a new shape

    When a user starts making a new Shape in the Designer UI they are given a list of AF Servers/DBs to choose from.The list is currently in alphabetical order and the first item is selected. It would be great if there were some default could be reflected so the user can immediately start working on the shape.

  19. UoM conversions should be optional

    Currently the integrator takes the Unit-of-Measure Class of the first element found that matches the asset shape, and uses that for all elements. This causes UoM conversion problems if other elements have units from a different class.

    I want the UoM conversion to be optional, as only at design time one can determine if the current set of elements, AND the future set of elements returned by the asset shape would support any UoM conversion or not.
    There are no technical means to ascertain the UoM class for future elements returned by the asset shape would match the current class.

  20. Disable automatic matches in Modify View screen

    As a PI View creator with an AF Database with several thousands of elements, I need to disable automatic matches so the GUI would run faster, and when I have finished shaping my data I should be able to enable matches again.
