  3. Bypass Certificate Prechecks for PI Integrator Upgrade

    Similar to PI Web API certificate feedback recently implemented in PI Vision 2020.

    If PI Integrator is currently using a 3rd party certificate and is upgraded- have installer bypass certificate prechecks and continue to use the same certificate with the upgrade. Some customers have restrictions on the servers where we need to install the SSL certificates, that make it impossible to verify the validity (e.g. no access to revocation servers).
    The certificate is accepted by clients as those have different authorisations.

    I would like to optionally bypass the certificate checks in the PI Integrator installer to allow using the same…

  4. SQL Views include a column for time of the export

    I would like a column to be configured for "time of export" For instance, if I have scheduled the periodicity of 1h, I would like the value of the column changed each hour. Currently, this is not possible as I can only add the timestamp (local and EF) but both are giving the same timestamp (EF one), which is not useful.

  5. Include DST to the sampling interval

    If values in the view are sampled by more than few minutes (12 ours for example) DST change can be an issue, especially if you want to have values exactly at 12 am/pm. It should be optional to include DST into sampling interval.

  6. Configuration improvements

    Post configuration (for this installation we're only using manually configured services/layers), you must walk through the wizard again to see how the data store / service / layer might be defined in GeoEvent Server. For support in these conditions, it would be helpful on the layer pages under ArcGIS tab to see how the layer is actually configured.

    In addition, once created, it is not possible to change descriptions of services / layers. I could potentially use these fields to provide links to the above in external documentation, but cannot edit it.

    Perhaps there are ways to do this, but…

  7. Disable the functionality deleting existing files when modified view is republished

    When a view that publishes to a file-based publish target is republished, the existing published data files are deleted. Disable this functionality or show a confirmation message before republishing. If a user is unaware of this functionality and republish, all previous work will be deleted.

  8. Create an intermediate file cache for file writers that do not support append data

    Some targets, for example S3, do not support append data. Therefore, anytime the PI Integrator for Business Analytics tries to update the file, it needs to reupload the entire file with additional data. As a consequence, during publications, the PI Integrator needs to upload the delta files multiple times as opposed to generating the file once locally and uploading it to S3, which would improve performance.

  9. Allow the creation of global filters so that they do not need to be created individually for each view

    As a user that creates multiple views, allow the creation of global filters so that they do not need to be created individually for each view manually

  12. Allow PI Integrator to transform data before publishing it

    We have data coming from an RDBMS Interface with the format XXX|YYY|ZZZ.

    In some cases, we have several records with the same timestamp, so we cannot use an Analysis in AF to separate XXX|YYY|ZZZ into 3 different tags with the values XXX, YYY, and ZZZ.

    When we push this tag to a SQL Server through PI Integrator for BA, we would like to have the option to do this transformation there (from 1 column to 3 different ones), instead of finally creating a view in the SQL Server where we do the transformation.

    Feedback written as a recommendation from case…

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  17. 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.

  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.

  19. Support Kerberos Authentication to the PI Integrator

    The PI Integrator for Esri ArcGIS does not support Kerberos authentication to the Integrator.
    By adding support of Kerberos Authentication to the integrator means that when providing access to time enabled feature layers from external networks, the users do not need to enter their credentials.
