  2. External triggers for streaming views

    Request to allow for streaming view triggers based on attributes that are not already in the schema. Need to be able to specify external triggers while defining the shape for a streaming view.

  4. Allow PI Integrator for Business Analytics to publish to an existing/pre-defined table

    PI Integrator creates tables in the destination database. I'd like to have PI Integrator publishes data to pre-defined tables.

  5. 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

  6. Manually refresh point configuration changes

    As a PI System Admin, it would be useful to have a way of manually refreshing point configuration updates in the PI Integrator for Business Analytics user interface, instead of waiting for point changes to updated automatically. This would be useful for testing purposes and fast-moving projects. At present this is achieved by restarting the service however a button, similar to the Restart button in PI ICU for interfaces, would be helpful.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Allow saving message schema to a file from PI Integrator for Business Analytics UI

    Currently, PI Integrator only allows to save message schema to Registry. I would like to be able to save the schema to a file (for example: .json, .csv) as well.

  10. Support non-domain SQL server as PI Integrator backend

    PI Integrator supports SQL authentication to the backend SQL server. However, the install user is only authenticated to the SQL server by windows authentication, which makes using a non-domain SQL Server unfeasible. Please support a non-domain SQL server as the Integrator backend to allow more flexible architecture options.

  11. Support SQL in Azure as a BA Integrator backend

    As an administrator, I want to use SQL Azure as the database backend for my PI IntegratorDB, Stats, Logs database, so that I can offload the SQL administrative tasks to Azure.

  12. Allow publishing to S3 with Roles instead of key / secrect key

    Rotating security keys on a regular basis is extremely time consuming when you have to change the key on each defined target.

  13. Have the Column Headers show up regardless whether this is the first of second file of an export data file?

    Have the PI Integrator for Business Analytics always create Column Headers regardless if it appending to the same file or a different file, and ID to reset to 1. Currently, "Append Timestamp" is unchecked and upon the program removing the file from the original export location, sometimes the column headers will not show up and the ID will not reset as the Integrator believes that it is appending data when the first file that is gone. The First file will always contain the Column Headers and ID will start at 1. Please let all subsequent file Column Headers and ID…

  14. Alert user when PI Integrator is close to the licensed stream limit

    As an Integrator user, I would like the Integrator to more actively alert me when I am close to my licensed stream limit so that I can take action. Currently I can check the Administration > Licensing page, but I would prefer to have a more active alert such as a warning message in the User Interface.

  15. Support latest Oracle database and ODAC version

    As a user who publishes to Oracle, I would like the PI Integrator to support the latest Oracle database and ODAC versions so that I can take advantage of Oracle bug fixes.

    For example, the PI Integrator 2020 version supports only ODAC 12.1.0.2.4 , but nuisance messages due to the following were resolved in a later version of ODAC: ORA-03137: Malformed TTC Packet From Client Rejected.

  16. 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…

  17. Change the friendly name of the self-signed certificate to "PI Integrator for Business Analytics Self-signed Certificate"

    To avoid confusion during certificate selection, please change the friendly name of the self-signed certificate from "PI Integrator for Business Analytics" to "PI Integrator for Business Analytics Self-signed Certificate"
    PI SQL DAS self-signed certificate has the friendly name "PI SQL Data Access Server Self-signed Certificate", which is quite clear.

  18. Improve the Upgrade Installation Experience

    Allow the licensed size of the integrator to be increased on already deployed infrastructure without requiring a new installation of the software. License process similar to the current one with the PI Server is requested.

  20. 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.
