    Final testing for PI System Connector with configurable snapshot support is underway. We look forward to announcing General Availability for real time snapshot support in our next update.

  2. Add the ability to select a subset of PI Points from a PI Data Archive

    The PI System Connector allows to include PI Point replication directly from the PI Data Archive even if they are not reference in the PI AF hierarchy with the "Include all PI points from this PI Data Archive" option.

    I would like to replicate only some PI Points that are not referenced, not all. This would remove the need to maintain both a PI to PI and a PI System Connector.

    I could create a bogus AF Database referencing those points but I would prefer not to.

  3. Windows Authentication on the Wonderware SQL databases

    Currently, if SQL server authentication is disabled on the SQL server hosting the Wonderware Historian, the connector cannot authenticate and read from it because the connector is designed to authenticate explicitly using SQL credentials. To be able to authenticate using Windows authentication is essential for some customer to be able to implement the PI Connector for Wonderware Historian, as some organizations disable SQL server authentication for security purposes.

  5. Possibility to configure AF Prefix - PI System connector

    For the PI System Connector it is possible to configure a prefix for PI Tags. We also need the possibility to configure a prefix for AF related items like Event Frame Attributes or tables.
