  1. PI AF - Event Frame Naming Pattern

    The need and desire is there to be able to further customize event frame names via AF Analysis. I would like the ability to name my event from an Attribute value. In my case this would pull in the BatchID and give the event frame a name of 1001, 1002 and so on for new events.

    We can do this in Event Frames Generator but it's not ideal when we only need to correct events for one element we end up touching all of them during a restart or backfill. Doing this via Analysis would be a great benefit to…

  2. Easily create periodic event frames

    I'd like an easy way of creating periodic event frames (such as hourly), so that the close of one event frame is at the same time as the open of the next.

  3. Event Frame summaries

    As an user, I want to be able to get summaries of an event frame such as count, total duration, total of event frame attributes so that I can characterize the event.

  4. Event Frame Generation for Step Changes

    There does not seem to be a clear and concise way to trigger a new event frame (and end an old one) based on a step change in a tag. For example, if we had a tag, PHASE, that changed every time we entered a  new phase and remained at that value, I would like to end a previous EF and start a new EF anytime that tag changed. Currently, even with performance equations, there doesn't seem to be a clear way of doing this with an EF Analysis. You can do it with the EF generator interface, but it…

  5. The permissions at the EF level are derived from template, want to configure AF security for permission of EF level only.

    Want to configure AF security that will allow an AF Identity to rename Event Frames once they have been generated, but do not want this Identity to be able to modify the Event Frame Template that the Event Frame is based on. The permissions at the EF level are derived from their associated template. This is stated in the following documentation:

    The security on the created Event Frames is controlled by the template’s ReadData and WriteData security settings. For your use case, you would configure the template’s security for the identity to NOT have Write permission and to have both ReadData and WriteData permissions.

    The documentation in the AF SDK’s help for AFSecurity class has more information: https://techsupport.osisoft.com/Documentation/PI-AF-SDK/html/T_OSIsoft_AF_AFSecurity.htm

  6. Support event frame duration as a substitution parameter

    As an user, I want to be able to substitute the duration of an event frame in a data reference ConfigString so that the data reference can take the event frame duration into consideration.
