  1. Allow for an IT policy requiring fixed database sizes by optionally preventing the PI Integrator Log database from dynamically shrinking

    As a system administrator working under our IT department's policies, I want to be able to prevent the PI Integrator's Log database from shrinking, so that I can conform to IT policies that require fixed SQL database sizes with the goal of preventing fragmentation.

  3. Add Esris statistics support on augmented feature layer for ESRI Integrator

    Currently, only GeoServer or Time-Enable layer can be used with Esri Dashboards Statistics such as pie and serial charts. This should also be possible with augmented feature layers.

  4. Export data in rows instead of columns

    Data is usually exported under column headers, but I'd like to know whether it's possible to export data in rows (e.g. tags in one row, values in another row). I can transpose this data in SQL after the fact, but is this possible to do from the Integrator itself?

  5. Allow streaming view for Event Frames in the PI Integrator for Business Analytics

    It would be useful to be able to stream Event Frames via the PI Integrator for BA so that the associated and aggregate data for events can be used in targets.

    This opens the possibility of using Event Frames to identify specific situations, gather the data and then share that data in real-time with other systems so that those systems can make event-based analyses.

  6. Add a "quality tag" to the Integrator jobs that tells the receiving system if the Data source is up or down.

    Having an "up/down" or source-system quality check will help the receiving systems know if the data is flowing or stopped. If destination analytics are using the output of an Integrator and are expecting the latest values to be available in calculations, knowing if the system is down can prevent invalid analyses outputs/calculated values due to missing or stale data.

  7. Provide option to pause a backfill

    PI Integrator views can be backfilled using the Update Data or automatically with the PI Integrator Sync service. Having the ability to pause these backfills could allow users to resume them at a later time if their PI System is experiencing any temporary issues.

  8. Provide prompt whenever data will be deleted by an action

    There are multiple PI Integrator actions that will cause data to be deleted such as Update Data or republishing a view. Whenever data will be deleted by the PI Integrator, a prompt should be returned so users are aware that their actions will result in this.

  9. Allow Configuration of Target Table Name from View for PII4BA

    We have a use case where there is a need to publish data from one PI Integrator instance to multiple environments for IT to run through their dev / test / prod on the datalake setup. Our targets are SAP HANA instances, but this problem applies to all targets as it is inherent in the setup of the Integrator that the table name created is the same as the view name.

    Right now this requires the view names to change between targets and the view name is the name of the database table that is created. I would like to…

  10. Drop support for TLS 1.0 & TLS 1.1

    Please drop support for TLS 1.0 & TLS 1.1. These have been known to be insecure protocols for a while now, are not supported by modern browsers, and have been superseded by TLS 1.2 & TLS 1.3.

    "Compatibility with older browsers" is not a good reason to keep them around, since even Internet Explorer supports TLS 1.2 & TLS 1.3. Anyone using an older browser should upgrade for their own good.

  11. Add support for TLS 1.3

    TLS 1.2 is the highest version of TLS that PI Integrators currently support. Please add support for TLS 1.3 to make the PI Integrator web pages load faster and more securely.

  12. Add support for HTTP/2

    The PI Integrator web pages currently use only HTTP/1.1. Please add support for HTTP/2 so that these web pages will load faster. This is especially important for mobile devices, which are generally already slower compared to desktop or laptop computers.

  13. Minify the HTML, CSS, and JavaScript code of PI Integrators

    The code for the web pages of PI Integrators is currently not minified. Please minify it so that the pages load faster, especially on mobile devices, and so that the network traffic is reduced.

    To be clear, to avoid the extra processing time of minification during the use of the PI Integrators, the code should be minified to begin with. That is, PI Integrators should be released with pre-minified code and minification should not be a separate step.

  14. Ability to edit free-form views and keep custom properties

    Right now, when adding new attributes to a view, custom properties are lost when the field is updated. A workaround is to add custom properties when adding new items. This works for a few items, but can be quite cumbersome when adding a large amount. It would be nice to be able to update the view and keep the custom properties at the same time.

  15. Reduce the number of API calls required when publishing to AWS S3

    Currently, the PI Integrator makes at least one API call per shape match when publishing views to the AWS S3 target. However, this results in increased cost (AWS S3 tiers have API quotas) and difficulties in implementing the AWS Lambda service when it is configured to trigger on new bucket actions.

  16. Allow greater control of the streaming view schema

    Currently streaming views in the PI Integrator for Business Analytics have a custom schema inside of initial curly brace's {}. Streaming views should have an option to encapsulate these messages inside of a square brace [] which is required for some downstream applications.

  17. A report that shows the elements, attributes, PI points, publish targets, etc. used in all views.

    As an end user/PI System admin, I need to get a list of views, elements, attributes, tags, target and run frequency for all views in PI Integrator. When the target is a SQL server, I also need to know the database and table name.

    Currently this information may be collected from different places, e.g. using the PI Builder and AF configuration database, or the Integrator backend SQL database, but it is a tough manual search process.

  18. Allow users to save/copy preview data for PI Integrator views

    My downstream coworkers generally like to see the format of an example data set in order for them to be able to shape and manipulate the data within Azure Datawarehouse/IOT hub. Right now, I can view the data, but can't export or even copy and paste it. It's a minor request, but it'd be great to be able to copy and paste the preview data .

  19. Add secur

    As an IT administrator, I would like PI Integrator for EsriArcGIS to support security-related configuration parameters so that I can protect my organization against cyber security threats. Some examples of parameters we are looking for are:
    <RequestLimits> element, specifically the maxAllowedContentLength, maxQueryString, and maxUrl attributes.

    <headerLimits> to configure the type and size of header your web server will accept.

    connectionTimeout, headerWaitTimeout, and minBytesPerSecond attributes of the <limits> and <WebLimits>

    <httpCookies httpOnlyCookies="true" requireSSL="true" />

    An attribute to redirect HTTP traffic to HTTPS
