Allow data encoding to be configurable
Certain data applications, such as Azure Stream Analytics, require specific encoding of data (eg UTF-8 vs UTF-16). In order to use these applications, the PI Integrator should allow the data encoding to be configurable during view creation.
This idea has been completed in PI Integrator for Business Analytics 2020 release.
It certainly needs this functionality otherwise data from PI- > azure IOT Hub,event hub --> Stream analytics will not work.
