Allow sending data to the OPC UA Server
Currently the Interface is supporting read only.
Sending data is also required
Currently, there are no plans to incorporate bi-directional data flow within PI Connector for OPC UA. This request will be reviewed again at a later date but for now, there are no immediate plans to incorporate this functionality.

NOVARTIS and ROCHE are requesting this feature for different use cases, like the PAT for example. More and more devices are coming on the market with OPC UA Server embedded only (and no more OPC DA)
Due to network restrictions we will be forced to migrate from OPC DA to OPC UA and write functionality is something we need and currently use with OPC DA so it is a very important matter for us

Some EA customers are requesting this functionality which would be very important for them.
