  1. Always produce output table on publication: if there is no data to export when an asset view is published, produce an empty output table

    I build asset views on a schedule with interpolated time points based on a PI Point. I also set these up before any data is added to the PI Point so on first publication there is no data to export. Currently the PI Integrator for Business Analytics does not produce an output table if there is no data to export so any downstream SQL queries will fail since the table does not exist. If the output table was always created on publication, and an empty table was created when there is no data to export, this problem would be fixed. …

  2. Allow asset views to run now and on a schedule

    I need to create asset views that perform daily aggregation at midnight. Currently once I create an asset view I must wait until after the following midnight to see the output. It would be very useful to have the option to publish once and thereafter on a schedule so there is data to work from immediately.
    Alternatively if it was possible to upgrade an existing single published asset view to running on a schedule this would solve the problem.

  3. Time shifting data to align with plant process flow and tank retention

    This concept would really apply to all integrators except Esri. 
    We are careful to interpolate data in evenly spaced samples for large matrix analytics.  What happens when some of the data is upstream and the rest of the data is downstream and a tank sits in the middle with a 2 hour retention?  The data will not align.  We need to take into account the asset time retention as the process flows from the beginning to the end.  This can easily be calculated by time shift analytics that would shift data on the inlet to match the data on the…

  4. "Start Time" and "End Time" of a view reflect the data the view contains.

    As someone who uses the UI to get a summary of what my views contain, I would like the view's "Start Time" and "End Time" to reflect the actual data contained within the view in the case that I "Update Data" in the view to be something outside of the original bounds.

  5. Create ArcGIS Feature Services and Layers with More Descriptive Names

    Update the naming convention used to create ArcGIS feature services and layers to use names that more accurately reflect the services and layers stored on the Integrator side. Customer Issue: The current convention is to use numbers instead of the layer names which causes confusion when trying to locate published items in ArcGIS Online or Portal for ArcGIS.

  6. Support ArcGIS Stream Services

    Provide PI System data to ArcGIS stream services in addition to feature services. Customer Issue: Some customers require immediate availability of the data in client applications. Stream services provide a near-instant update rate which feature services cannot.

  7. Make Attributes for PI Coresight Ad-hoc Trend Selectable

    Provide a mechanism to filter out attributes that are not wanted on the PI Coresight ad-hoc trend. Customer Issue: All of the layer's fields (attributes) are included on the ad-hoc trend by default. This makes for a crowded trend that often includes unnecessary attribute data.Ê

  8. Operations Dashboard Trend Widget: Compare a Single Attribute Across Many Features

    Provide the ability for users to trend only selected attribtues of a layer across multiple features in that layer using a PI Coresight widget. Customer Issue: The existing Trend WidgetÊallows users to view all of the attributes for a single feature. Users want the option to limit the attributes on the display and then select multiple features to include.

  9. Provide SQL Scripts for Creating the SQL Database Prior to Installation

    Provide a way for a user with elevated SQL credentials to complete the SQL part of the installation prior to another user completing the installation of the executable. Customer Issue: Many customers have restricted access to SQL servers that an installing user would need to complete the installation. Providing scripts for the customer to complete the database creation before the installation means they can review the specific tasks that will be carried out before running the scripts, and they can have a user with existing elevated permissions perform this part of the installation.

  10. Editing Layer Fields: Sort AF Attribtue Options Alphabetically

    When editing an existing layer's fields (not during layer creation), sort the AF attribute dropdown list aphabetically rather than by category. Customer Issue: When there are a lot of AF attribtues on an element template, viewing that dropdown list of attributes by category makes them difficult to find.

  11. Create Notifications/Event Frames Triggered by Location

    Provide a mechanism to create notifications and event frames in AF as moving assets approach geotriggers and geofences. Customer Issue: Customers need to be alerted when these events occur and want to have that information stored in the PI System.Ê

  12. Widget Styling: PI Coresight Widgets and their Dialogs do not Uniformly Implement Operations Dashboard Customizable Styles

    Provide widgets to Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS that respect the skinning and style customization that a user wants. Customer Issue: Users want the PI Coresight widgets and their dialogs to respect customization through the dashboard's extensibility model in order to control the look and feel of their environment.

  13. Support Event Frame Layers

    Provide a mechanism to view event frame data layers in addition to layers built on elements. Customer Issue: Users want the start and end times of the time periods for review to come from existing AF objects such as event frames.Ê

  14. Support Altitude ('z') When Creating Layers

    Allow layer configuration to include an altitude (z) component of location. Customer Issue: Features with an altitude attribute in the PI System do not have that reflected through the Integrator to the ArcGIS Platform.

  15. Localization

    Provide localized versions of the PI Integrator for Esri ArcGIS. Customer Issue: Users prefer to interact with the application in their native language so they can more fully understand it and be sure that it works with localized versions of other OSIsoft products.

  16. Widgets for Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS

    Develop native widgets for Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS that are similar to the ones available for Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS. Customer Issue: Customers building apps with the Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS want PI Coresight widgets available for their use in this application as well.

  17. Incorporate Manual GeoEvent Steps for Integrating with an Existing ArcGIS Feature Layer into Wizard

    Improve the Integrator's native support for appending PI System data to an existing ArcGIS feature layer rather than creating a new layer. Customer Issue: Appending PI System data to an existing ArcGIS feature layer with geometry necessitates several manual, time-consuming steps.
