    If you use the AF 2018 SP2 release, you can use the BadVal() function to check for validity of the input – i.e. if the input PI Point doesn’t exist. Thus you can use the BadVal() function now to check for validity of the input and also whether the input has bad values. Using the BadVal() function you can add logic to your Expression to handle missing inputs or bad inputs.

    I’m sorry but I don’t understand your question about exclude output attributes. Can you provide an example use case?

  2. Ability to create/modify/delete PI Points using PI System Explorer

    As a user, I want to be able to create/modify/delete PI Points using PI System Explorer, so that I do not have to use multiple tools to manage my PI Points and AF objects.

  3. Support SQL Azure as a PI AF SQL backend

    As an administrator, I want to use SQL Azure as the database backend for my PI AF databases, so that I can offload the SQL adminstrative tasks to Azure.

    Can you give an example use case for this? Not sure I understand why you would want to disable an analysis based on an expression. Since analytics is an online/continuous/near-real-time calculation engine, its goal in life is to continuously run calculations based on triggers. It seems what you’re asking is a one-time adhoc type evaluation to help you with initial configurations? Can you provide more details?

  5. Sort Dates in PI System Explorer correctly

    Very small/minor request:
    PI System Explorer Grid Control needs to sort Date Attributes by Date and not by String.

    Example of current sorting:

    1/1/2018
    11/1/2017
    2/1/2016
    3/1/2015

    Proposed sort:

    3/1/2015
    2/1/2016
    11/1/2017
    1/1/2018
