  8. Enhance the Timestamp data type to support all the formats allowed on .NET

    Use case: ISO 8601 timestamps (2019-07-08T18:48:02+00:00), would be much easier to parse with full .NET datatime format support.
    It would also allow the connector to be consistent with the dynamic timestamp formatting that follows

  9. PI Connector for Cygnet - Historical Data Recovery

    The PI Connector for Cygnet is normally used for real-time data acquisition. But, some times it becomes necessary to migrate large volumes of historical data between Cygnet and PI.

    There is a back filling application that can be used to do this, but it is currently unsupported by Osisoft. It would be best to integrate a historical data recovery functionality into the connector.

  11. PI Connector for OPC UA Failed to populate Discovered Endpoints list

    When pressing the Discover Available Endpoints button under the following condition , it failed to populate the Discovered Endpoints list because of 501 Error:
    a. NAT configured between PI Connector for OPC UA and OPC UA Server networks b. OPC UA Server's Endpoint URL was specified with the IP address from OPC UA Server network.

    Request
    This error occurs when NAT is involved in the network configuration. PI Connector for OPC UA should take into consideration this scenario and work as UaExpert, which can handle it without any problem.
