Backfill/Recalculate over future data
The ability to backfill an analysis using an end time in the future. This would read data from future inputs and write the results as future values.
While we appreciate the interest the community has for this suggestion, we have decided to decline this item in favor of other high priority work. Thank you for your feedback, and please continue sharing suggestions for how we can improve the PI Developer Technologies for you!

We would very much like this to be added as we need to be able to calculate Forecast data to plan our Maintenance schedules. The workarounds posted in the forums are not very tidy and needs a lot of tinkering around. Especially when the calculations become complicated, this becomes a mess.
Do you want to backfill/recalculate analyses programmatically? I'm asking because this post is in the PI Developer Technologies section.
Within the standard product, it is possible to do this, but there is a limitation. The limitation is that the scheduling has to be periodic and not Event-Triggered. If you have questions about how this works, please contact tech support.
currently we revert to ACE to do this but this cannot be universally applied...
