Be able to expose AF with PI OPC DA Server
Today PI OPC DA can only expose tags from DA.
To have the option to expose information from AF.
Both the AF structure and attributes.
We are using AF for everything so why not in PI OPC DA.
OPC UA has capability to expose all the metadata unlike OPC DA which has limitations to show very few information, so for exposing the AF structure and attributes, there would be a need to implement PI OPC UA Server. It won't be PI OPC DA.

There's not much point in trying to improve the PI OPC DA Server, since OPC DA is on its way out. A PI OPC UA Server should cover PI AF with no problem:

Yes this would be greatly welcomed. MDB in the versions prior to 2015 allowed a nice structure to be in place in the DA server, now there is no way to have a structure it seems.
