  1. Naming of the Data Access Filter File when exporting the available Type Definitions

    Currently, the filename will always be AvailableTypeDefinitions.csv. The filename should contain at a minimum the data source name.

    For example: <DataSource><DateTime>AvailableTypeDefinitions.csv

  5. Read the historical data of a variable from OPCUA server when PI connector (version 1.3) is running

    • In my OPC UA server, each node is historized for 7days of time in order to avoid the data loss in case of internet issue/communication issue in field devices.
    • When the PI connector is stopped and restarted for some time interval, data missed during that period has been recovered successfully.
    • While PI connector is running, I want to read and store this historical data of each node in PI server. It would be great if any options available in PI connector (version 1.3) to view and store this historical data?. Thank you

  8. Connector syncing to existing points in the DA/AF servers.

    Can there be another Excel export/import step when establishing the "Destination" where the "Source" points be matched w/ what points already exist in the DA/AF server?

  11. Identify the updated or changed nodes on the Type Definitions Export

    Be able to identify the changed (new, updated, removed) nodes that are exported in the Available Type Definitions file through the connector interface.   For systems that are in flux, there's not another way to identify those PI AF elements / attributes that are changed without saving different versions of the Export file and using a file comparison tool to see what has changed.  If the export file contained a date on each item on when it was created/updated (if that's available) that would help identify the new or changed items.

    When there are nodes and attributes that were removed from…
