  1. 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.

  2. Option to automatically create sub folders in AWS S3 per time period (hour/day/month)

    It would be nice to have an option to specify PI INT to create sub folders within a 'view' folder in AWS S3 so that data files dumped in S3 folder could be automatically organized by the time period, example: subfolder for all files created for that day.

  4. Configure PI Integrator for Business Analytics to Publish to Amazon Redshift Database Schema

    As an end user, I would like to be able to publish views directly to Amazon Redshift Database Schema targets. Amazon currently implements database schema functionality that allows databases to be partitioned. While PI Integrator for Business Analytics allows publishing to Amazon Redshift, it does not allow for schema to be configured, and always results in the view publishing to the public schema.

  5. Support Element metadata Modification for data synchronization with PI AF

    I would like the PI Integrator for BA to be able to detect an Element metadata modification (ex.: Category) and automatically add this element to published views where the element modification matches the view's shape

  6. Choose a shape's filter condition ('OR' or 'AND')

    Currently, two filters added means it's an "OR" condition. I would like to be able to choose the condition applied, so I could instead select it to be an "AND" condition so the elements must meet both or all criteria. This would be useful to apply multiple categories to the View, such as an element being x 'OEM' category and y 'Model' category. As an alternative, make the categories multi-selectable.

  7. Add the ability to select all child elements and replicate parts of the AF hierarchy when using Streaming Views

    As an end user utilizing existing AF hierarchies with the PI Integrator for Business Analytics, I would like the ability to select entire parts of the AF hierarchy when creating streaming views such as the ability to select all child elements and their respective attributes. Filters can work when the hierarchy has been optimized with the Integrator in mind but not in all situations.

  8. Set the default installation path to PIHOME64 instead of C:\Program Files\OSIsoft\Integrators\Esri ArcGIS\

    The installation path should be consistent with all other OSIsoft products that are installed in PIHOME64.

  9. More control over view format (wide verse long tables)

    I would like to be able to have more control over the format of the views. For instance, right now it automatically populates every included attribute as a column. For my continuous data attributes I would like to be able to condense the 50+ individual attribute columns into 3 columns : attribute, value, timestamp. This would make the table a long format instead of wide.

  10. Add value option to publish element version metadata

    As a PI Integrator user, I would like to be able to publish metadata about a given element's/attribute's AF version metadata (such as number like 0, 1, 2) so that I am aware when an element/attribute version has changed.

  11. Support element and attribute versioning for all value retrieval methods

    As a PI Integrator user, I would like the Integrator to support retrieving element and attribute versioned data and metadata (PI Point, element GUID, etc.) so that the data I publish with the Integrator are correct in their respective time context. For example, my attribute's data reference may be Tag1 until the equipment was decommissioned a month ago, and then a new element version is created to reference Tag2. I would like the Integrator to respect the AF element/attribute versioning effective dates to determine the correct data to publish.

  13. Support ArcGIS Print widget

    Example customer use case:

    In order for the HSE team to drive continuous improvement, it is desired to integrate real time data and GIS maps, and be able to export findings in a certain area of the map into a pdf format (using the Print Widget) which can then be saved for future use and also shared among the team.

    When turning on only static layers (layers that are not published by Integrator), the printing works fine, but having a static pdf is not of much use to the HSE team and they need to see the layers on the…

  14. Support data aggregation when requesting data with a time interval filter through PI Integrator for Esri feature service

    Provide support for Element Attribute with Value Retrieval Method by time-Time Range, By Time Range-Maximum/Minimum/Average/Total when requesting data with a time interval through PI Integrator for Esri feature service.

    We are creating Esri Web App Builder chart and map widgets that show PI data, and we are using PI Integrator for Esri to access the PI data. One use case is to show max feeder load for a set of feeders over a set time range in a bar chart, the time range could be a particular month, year, quarter, or ad-hoc date range selected by the user through a…

  16. Add a "Written" timestamp column when publishing a view to indicate when the data row was modified/written

    Have an extra column in the view that indicates when the data row is actually written to the target.
    The current timestamp column is the timestamp of the value itself, not when the data row is written.
    This will be especially useful for troubleshooting, or when PI Integrator is updating existing value in a target table (will give indication of which data row was recently updated).

  17. Improve performance on narrow table queries

    Improve performance of queries resulting in a narrow table. This can happen for queries with many Elements, each with a few Attributes, where bulk queries to the data source are not possible. A narrow table can also result when using * for the Attribute criteria, as each Attribute is then considered a separate match.

  18. Grant permissions only to configure targets

    As a PI Integrator Administrator I need to grant permissions to a group of users to configure targets since they are the administrators of the target systems (SQL Server, ADLS, etc.), but they don't need access to other administrator tasks like security management.

  19. Allow to Manually execute a publish once view

    To execute a view with the same parameters, it is actually mandatory to edit the view to be able to execute it again.
    It would be nice to be able to force its execution using a right clic on it for example

  20. Display the total number of matches for a shape

    When applying a filter when building a shape, the Integrator displays a limited amount of matching elements which is fine.
    It would be useful do display the number of element matches as an additional info
