How can we improve PI Connectors?

Selecting a subset of items from the same OPC UA template

When multiple OPC objects share the same template, you can only either select the entire template or not since only the template would be populating the filter file. In the example above, if one were to want to bring CC1001 in PI but not CC2001, then, they would need to be moved to a specific folder in the UA Server or change the template on the UA Server side. There should be a user-friendly way to perform more granular selection

We plan on improving the user experience when it comes to data selection using PI Connector for OPC UA. This is actively being looked into.

    It is now possible to define "IncludeDataTypesInFilter": true, in %PIHOME64%\Connectors\OpcUa\Configuration\Datasource.config.json, then restarting and re-discovering the data source to have separate entries different data types.
