  1. Support reading native EF comments and annotations

    As an RTReports administrator I would like to have the ability to incorporate comments and annotations that users attach to Event Frames .  For example, I would like generate a notification report for a unit over a period of time - PI notifications now stores acknowledgments, comments, approvals and I think severity in the AF database.  when generating my notification report I would like to incorporate this data into my report.

  4. Allow Report Parameters to be used in Asset Context Templates

    Utilize Report Parameters to select things like Asset Names, Asset Templates, and Root Paths in Reports that use Asset Context Templates.

    Example use case: A customer has 100 units based on the same AF template and would like their users to be able to select a specific, desired unit from a drop-down list (i.e., utilizing a report parameter) in the RtReports Generator to run a time-based report against. They would need to configure an Asset Context Template in the RtReports Editor, with the AF Template specified, and the Asset Name set as a report parameter.

  5. Enable Including Event Frames in Time Based Report

    It would be useful to have the possibility to include EFs in a Time Based Template.

    For example:

    • if downtime events are recorded as Event Frames, I would like to report on all the downtime EFs occurred in the last month (for example), including acknowledges and annotations.
    • Using PI Connector for Siemens Simatic PCS7, conditions end-up in PI Event Frames accompanied with a related set of static and dynamic attributes. Having the possibility of including Conditions EFs in a time based report could be useful.

  7. Configure Automatic Report Generation Security

    Automatic Report Generation (ARG) security is currently based on User Group privileges and Report Execute privileges, meaning that any user that has permissions to generate a report can also configure ARG for that report.

    The request is to implement a security feature so that Admin users can restrict user access to the ARG configuration page without also restricting that same user's access to generate, edit, and view the report.

  10. New line or Next line character - Need a "Formating" control character/object such the users may ensure object(s) start on the next line

    The current RtReports does not have any "next line" control character/object that customer is using Text object: </br> which is not recommended by OSIsoft developer

  11. RtReports end time for ongoing batch

    The RtReport batch end time and duration should show N/A or * while the batch is still in progress. Users might be generating the report and commenting on it before the batch ends. The current format could cause confusion for the user by showing the time that the report has been generated as the batch end time for a batch that has not been completed yet.

  12. time based report approval status

    Show if Time Based Reports are already Approved or Not Yet Approved in the Generator without having to generate each report to check.

    This will allow approvers and users printing the reports to easily check which reports are already approved.

  13. Sorting of Wildcard-matched Modules from MDB

    When creating a report which will bring in PI Point data from all module aliases matching a given wildcard expression, I would like there to be a way to set the order of items returned in the Report and the data journal without needing to specify actions individually.

  14. RtReports Editor Idle Timeout

    RtReports Editor does not have an "idle timeout" function today.

    As a reporting application which needs to comply with 21 CFR Part 11 requirements it is important to have the functionality to define a "Idle timeout", meaning, the minutes or seconds that the application should count when the user is idle (not actively interacting with the application) until it LOCKS the user out and requests a re-login to be done for the user to go back to the active session and continue working.
    This should be a configurable parameter (similarly to how it is done in the RtReports Generator)

  15. Gridline frequency of X axis in trends

    As mentioned in case 00677743, we wish to be able to format the X axis also.

    For example 15 minutes step. Or 4 grid-lines per trend.

    Also the time value is formatted as integer, e.g. 11.75 hour(s).
    would be nicer if 11 hours 45 minutes.

    Cosmetic things.

    Thank you

  16. Have both default PI Data Archive and Asset Framework Server load in generator

    Some customers are using the same RtReports Server to connect to both PI Data Archives (for batches) and Asset Framework Servers (for Event Frames) since they are using both at the same time. They'd like to be able to store both DA and AF/Database in the Generator, so there's no need to click around selecting them.

  18. Parse String Tag Using an AF Attribute as a Filter

    Following the "Parse String Tag Using an AF Attribute as a Filter" KCS is a very complex setup to filter Strings based on AF Attribute values.

    We would like to see the filter functionality enhanced to allow filtering based on an AF Attribute Value.

    Link to current workaround: https://customers.osisoft.com/s/knowledgearticle?knowledgeArticleUrl=000025025

  19. Enable RTREports to support SDK Buffering to allow fanning data to each collective member

    With the move to AF and Event Frames, the limitations of PI Batch in respect to collectives is now gone. It would be very beneficial for customers to configure SDK Buffering with RTReports to allow for all GMP data to reside on every collective member. The lack of this support greatly diminishes the value of collectives and increases the likelihood of downtimes and data loss.
