  1. Connector Failover

    Add failover capability so I can run a pair of connectors that will failover to the backup if the active is unavailable

  3. Wonderware Historian Connector should store some metadata in PI tag attributes

    The Description, Maximum EU, Minimum EU, Engineering Units, etc. that are stored in the Wonderware historian should be stored in the PI tags' attributes as well as the Wonderware AF structure.

  4. Wonderware Historian Connector Should store description in an AF attribute

    Wonderware Historian Connector should store description in an AF attribute.

    It has the description in hand as it is written to the PI tag descriptor

  5. Validate credentials before running connector

    Need a way to easily confirm that the credentials are correct before I try and run the connector.  Would like to see any errors surfaced via the web page so I can troubleshoot.

  6. Wonderware Connector - History Recovery

    Wonderware Connector has limited historical data recovery capabilities. It can cover a few days back in time but has not been designed to perform both realtime values and configurable history recovery period as both processes are synchronous.
    An old date is configurable but it would delay real time values capture which is counterproductive with the nature of the connector.
    It is not a reproach; that's just what it is.
    That's we figured out when implementig and assessing connector with an excellent support from OSISOFT engineers.

    Our connector implementation project came with the need of nearly a year of historical data…

  7. Disable Meta data collection for the PI Connector for Wonderware Historian

    We would like to have a way to disable the PI Connector for Wonderware Historian's ability to  collect descriptions and engineering units in the historian.  These can be incorrect at times in the Wonderware Historian.
