  1. Update PI AMI Interface for OpenWay Collection Engine v1.8.1.124

    Release a new version of the interface where it does not depend on the 1.x version of log4j rather the most recent and secure version of log4j. This is to improve security.

    Note: The Log4j 1.x version installed with the interface is not a part of the security vulnerabilities found in 2021.

  3. PI EFGen 4.1+ has limited recovery capabilities

    Up to PI EFGen 4.0, we were able to backfill OOO Event Frames by simply inputting the start and end time of the corresponding period. Since 4.1, this must be done in a per-event basis, since larger time ranges are modified so that RST matches the start of the latest active event and OOO EFs are missed.

  4. Migrate the PI Universal Interface (UniInt) Framework to use PI AF SDK

    Most PI Interfaces are based on the PI Universal Interface (UniInt) Framework and rely on PI API and its successor, PI SDK. PI SDK has, in turn, been superseded by PI AF SDK. PI SDK also relies on the deprecated and insecure ActiveX technology, which PI AF SDK does not use. I don't know or want to think about how insecure PI API is, even when the Windows Integrated Security version is used.

    For many data sources, the only OSIsoft-supported option to get data from the data source to PI is a PI Interface, partly because an equivalent PI Connector…

  5. Provide an option to show source batches of merged batches as child event frames

    PI Interfaces for Batch allow source batches to be merged into one merge batch and then store the source batch properties as extended properties on the event frame. There should be an option to show source batches of merged batches as child event frames rather than extended properties.

  6. PI EMDVB Interface - Allow to retrieve "description" column content from SQL DB

    The interface can retrieves Report events [Event,value="Report"].
    Within these events, [Descript] - parameter returning "category" from SQL database.
    We could not retrieve "description" column contents from the SQL DB [BReportEvent] table.
    See case 00902899.

  7. Retire 32-bit versions of PI Interfaces that have a 64-bit version

    These days, 32-bit operating systems are used for 1 of 2 reasons:

    • Somebody accidentally installed the 32-bit version instead of the 64-bit version, which is a mistake that OSIsoft has no obligation to accommodate.

    • The computer is very old, in which case it is due for an upgrade. If companies want to keep their operating systems up to date, they will need to replace their computers because of the minimum hardware requirements of Windows 11 and because Windows 11 does not have a 32-bit version. The replacement computers will be able to run the 64-bit versions of PI…

  8. Allow PI-ICU to Create/Edit Stored Credentials in Credential Manager

    An issue we run into often is that most of the accounts that are used to run our interfaces (mostly OPC DA) are different from accounts we use to configure the interfaces. Because these interfaces run on different domains, we have to store an account that can authenticate with the PI server in Credential Manager. This is easy to update for the logged in user but much more difficult for the service that runs the interface. Lots of times these accounts are not able to log in interactively and also are admin type accounts that the control systems personnel want…

  14. PI interface for OPC .. UA

    it would be useful to have an interface that can connect and retrieve data from OPC UA server. it will help to avoid using any additional software for "downgrading" the protocol to OPC at client side.

  15. MV90 interface

    We see some value in getting a read/write interface with Itron's MV90 billing system database. Being able to see billing interval billing data in PI would be valuable as well as being able to transfer billing data between other partners via PI to PI interface would solve a rather complex data exchange issue going on in the utility space.

  17. Avoid reloading tags after edits of non-key PI Point attributes

    Currently, UniInt-based interfaces will reload a tag if edits are detected on any of the PI Point attributes. This is not ideal as edits to non-key attributes (such as EngUnits) will still cause a tag to be reloaded, potentially leading to data source issues if large numbers of edits are made.

    Requesting to add the option to filter out edits to PI Point attributes that are not used by the interface to avoid unnecessary reloads.

  18. Add SOAP 1.2 support to the PI Interface for OPC XML-DA

    The current version of the PI Interface for OPC XML-DA seems to only support SOAP 1.1. All recent OPC XML-DA servers are developed following SOAP 1.2 standards, meaning the PI interface will not connect. Please enhance the interface to also support servers using the newer SOAP 1.2 standards.

    This also relates to tech support case 00857284

  20. Fix PI XMLTool (bundled with PI Interface for OPC XML-DA)

    The PI XMLTool that is bundled with the PI Interface for OPC XML-DA does not function with Windows Server 2019 even though the PI Interface for OPC XML-DA itself is documented to function. Can the client tool please be worked on so that it will function with the same operating systems that the interface does. This is a key component to aide in the troubleshooting of the interface as well as determining the correct instrumenttag field by the browsing the XML-DA tags on the server.
