  1. Automatically add new attributes to existing views

    As a PI administrator I want the integrator to detect new attributes on a template and add them to existing views automatically. This would be easier than creating a new view and asking users to reference this new output.

    This feature has been considered and has been rejected as not practical. SQL Server targets and other relational databases, files, and other destinations do not support efficient means of adding columns and inserting new data into existing data structures. There is a heavy reliance on bulk calls for performance reasons.

    Alternatives involve post processing a more generic table that can handle attribute additions.

  2. Allow PIIntegrator SQL database name to be configurable during installation

    During Integrator installation, we would like to choose the name of the Integrator's backend SQL database instead of using the default name PIIntegratorDB.

    Some use cases include:
    -Being able to use the naming scheme that our organization's DBA requires for SQL Server tables
    -Installing more than one Integrator instance on the same SQL Server

    Workaround: Follow the steps in KB01640 - Installing multiple Integrator instances on one SQL server.

    This is an old idea with actually 2 use cases.

    The idea in the title on having the PI Integrator SQL database name to be configurable during installation is not something we will move forward on at this time.

    However, the second use case mentioned on being able to support more than one Integrator instance on the same SQL server is planned to be supported in the release after PI Integrator for Business Analytics 2018 R2. As always, please feel free to email me if you have any questions!

  3. HA/Failover mechanism for the PI Integrator for ESRI

    As a user of the PI Integrator for ESRI, I would like a High Availability/failover mechanism for the integrator (data relay and application server components).

    Thank you for sharing your feedback! We have reviewed this idea, but have decided to decline it for now, as we are focused on other high priority work within the PI System, and don’t expect we’ll be able to prioritize this idea in a reasonable time period.

    You may have recently noticed that a number of ideas on our feedback site have been marked as “Declined”. While many of these ideas are great and valuable suggestions, we need to be more diligent about recognizing our development priorities and communicating back to those users when we realize we won’t be able to act on something. We are currently working through a large effort to clean our feedback forums up and provide “Declined” statuses where we recognize that we won’t be working on an idea in a reasonable timeframe. This effort spans across all of our products and will help us improve…

  4. 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.

    We do have a workaround procedure that can be followed, and while it’s not as convenient, it can at least get users past this hurdle.

  5. Support connecting to a different DNS listener for each of the Integrator's backend SQL databases

    The Integrator currently supports only a single SQL server connection string to access all of its backend databases (PIIntegratorDB, PIIntegratorLogs, PIIntegratorStats). Our organization's SQL Server cluster provides high availability at the SQL database level, however, with a separate DNS listener for each database. When either of the other PI Integrator backend databases fails over to another SQL server, we see errors like the following:
    “SqlUtilities:GetBackendSqlConnection: Error: Unable to obtain open SqlConnection to database, ‘PIIntegratorLogs’,at SQL server path, '(Server)'".

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. Allow configurable column size (nvarchar) when publishing to a relational table

    The current default column size is 4000 characters. It would be nice to allow the user to have control over this parameter.

  10. Have option to publish data only when the value changes

    As a user for PI Integrator for BA, I would like to have an option to only publish data when the value changes. The use case: a point is calculated via analysis service once a minute, and the value does not change often. I want the data to be published only when the value changes. Right now, PI Integrator for BA publishes the same (unchanged) value at each run with a different timestamp

  12. 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.

    As an Integrator administrator, I would like to be able to easily find specific Views in the Licensing tab of the admin page by filtering and/or sorting the table. Currently, when many Views have been created and deleted, it is hard to find specific Views or even find ones that have streams that can be recovered.

  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?

    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).
