  1. Allow "PI View" target to be disabled

    I would like the option to remove or disable the "PI View" target on the Data Warehouse, Azure, and SAP Hana editions. 

    In these editions, the PIIntegratorDB is expected to remain small because the data is published out to a separate database.  The problem, however, is that users may accidentally publish very large views to the "PI View" target instead of, for example, Azure Data Lake.  This can fill up drive space on the SQL server and prevent the Integrator (or other services that rely on that SQL server) from running.

    For these editions, most users will not be publishing…

  2. Allow for sampling rate that is faster than one event per seconds

    High frequency data is increasingly common. With examples in manufacturing of events happening entirely within a few 100s of milliseconds.
    The request is to allow the export of interpolated data at a rate higher than the current limit of 1 event per second.

  3. Allow configurable publish target timeout

    If the Integrator encounters a timeout writing data to a publish target, it would be nice to be able to configure this timeout in the Integrator's configuration file (%PIHOME64%\Integrators\BA\CAST.UI.WindowsService.exe.config). It is currently not possible for the user to specify this timeout for writing to a publish target.

  4. Sign up for updates on the PI AF Server for new event frames

    Currently, the PI Integrator for BA 2018 will add rows for event frames ending within the scheduled update time range. It would be better if the PI Integrator signed up for updates on the database and gets a list of all new or modified event frames to handle the cases where event frames are closed with an end time in the past that is not covered by the run period anymore.

  5. Send timestamps to esri ArcGIS along with values

    As a PI admin I would like to be able to optionally send through the timestamps of attributes to esri ArcGIS so that my end users can be sure that the data they are seeing in maps is current.

  7. Allow users to add GUID of the Event Frame to a view

    The abillity to add an Event frame's GUID is necessary to allow advanced solutions like genealogy to report on and link to a specific event frame.

  8. Allow users to "Add Columns" while "Modifying View" even if there is no time series values selected.

    Allow users to "Add Columns" while "Modifying View" even if there is no time series values selected.

    This will let us export things like 'path', 'description', 'category', 'name', etc. Which may be useful on their own, or when joined with another table.

    This has the additional benefit of making table joins easier, as time series tables are almost guaranteed not to have any columns with unique entries.

  9. 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.

  10. Add AMQP message queuing (like RabbitMQ) as a target to the PI Integrator for BA

    As a BigData analyst, I need to be able to add PI information to a global AMQP message queuing middleware, RabbitMQ being one example amongst others. From this message queue other consumers will have access to PI information along with message queues from other sources for offline or streaming analysis.

  12. Support different TimesStamp formats when Modifying Views

    Currently it is not possible to change the TimeStamp format from MM/dd/yyyy 12h AM/PM to other formats. Since there are many potential different data endpoints, it may be a good idea to allow users to change to other formats, such as 24h Military time.

  13. Add Conversion Faktor configuration to PI Integrator for BA

    When adding Total column in PI Integrator fro BA it is one day total (Conversion Factor = 1) by default. This should be configurable.

  14. Improve the UI to allow the starting/stopping of multiple views at once.

    There are a variety of reasons why being able to handle views in bulk would be nice. If I am cleaning up the UI it would be easier to delete multiple views at once. If I am doing maintenance on a target and I want to stop a subset of views, then I currently have to do them one at a time. Allowing the option to select multiple views would aid in these tasks.

  15. 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.

  16. Select all the attributes in a row

    When I click on the "Select All" button in order to select all the attributes of a view, the child attributes are not automatically selected and it is needed to select them one by one.

    Could it be possible to implement a new version of this functionality in order to facilitate our work?

  17. Show Date and Time of Local PI Server, Not PI AF Instance

    Currently, the timestamp which is shown in the export files is the date and time of the PI AF server which is extracting the data, not the date and time on the local PI server that the data is extracted from.  Like Datalink, we need the ability to pull data based on local date and time.

  18. Update data fucntionality for text file outputs

    Implement the ability to update data for continuously publishing views to text file outputs in same way that it is available for other data targets.  Use cases for this include:

    1) Ability to update data in the case of out of order events, late arriving data, or recalculated data.

  19. Filter based on tag attributes

    As a data scientist, I would like the output from the integrator to only include values for tags that are actively updating. When the PI administrator disables scanning on a tag, I would like the option to filter the row or at least send a NULL value instead of interpolating the stale value.

  20. Cross-Column filtering on PI Integrator

    Have to be able in the filtering page of the PII4BA to 'include all columns where any/all of these conditions are true' and then select where a given attribute is greater, lower, etc. than... another attribute present in the preview table. Now I am able only to define constants (e.g. 100, 50).
