  1. PI Connector for RDBMS

    The PI Interface for RDBMS is one of the most used PI Interfaces. Unfortunately, the fact that it is a PI Interface makes it unnecessarily difficult to use, and turning it into a PI Connector can help alleviate this. No more Location codes, squishy PI ICU, distributor tags, SQL file in the InstrumentTag, strange notations in the ExDesc, etc.

    From this item description it looks like the major pain point with existing RDBMS interface is providing configuration information (to the tags and interface). I would like to understand more if the request behind the connector is to solely minimize providing configuration information to the existing interface and tags?

  2. PI Connector for MQTT

    Create a PI Connector that supports the MQTT messaging protocol

  4. Connector for GE HABConnect

    Having a connector available for GE HABConnect rather than the interface would be useful to customers that are dealing with large amounts of data and make frequent changes to points on the GE side.  A connector that is capable of automatically updating point additions/deletions/modifications so that this doesn't have to be done manually on the PI side would be very helpful.

  7. Relay -> Relay communication

    To accomplish a dataflow in a cross domain architecture including a DMZ, and the abbility to avoid the use of a Credential Manager it would be usefull to setup connection between two PI Connector Relays (DZM domain and PIDA domain) based on AMQPS.

  15. Make a PI Signal Generator Connector (Ramp Soak + Random)

    Please consider combining the PI Ramp Soak Simulator Interface and the PI Random Simulator Interface into a single PI Connector. The upgrade of these PI Interfaces is important because they come bundled with the PI Data Archive—nearly every PI system uses them. It is also the perfect opportunity to show off PI Connectors to students and new customers without burdening them with the step of connecting to a data source, since Ramp Soak and Random generate their own data.
