  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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?

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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 .

  20. 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.
