As a company that provides services for remote assets at our customers sites, we need to collect data from our customer sites without having to deploy a full PI System SO THAT we can start providing our service weeks to months faster and save on deployment and infrastructure costs.
Ideally, we could deploy some PI Connectors to remote sites and store the data in a Cloud Data Store.17 votes
Currently in development via our Pervasive Data Collection and OSIsoft Message Format initiatives in support of Remote Operations Monitoring.
As a PI System Administrator, I would like a way to deploy PItoOCS in a secure and manageable way so that it is easy to maintain, and I can trust it is secure.
Currently, OSIsoft recommends PItoOCS be installed on a separate computer from the Data Archive to which it connects. PItoOCS only supports a single connection to a single Data Archive in the current version.
OSIsoft Product Management would like to better understand customer requirements about deployment of PItoOCS in their environment.4 votes
Enable a more seamless upgrade experience for the PI to OCS Agent, the on-premises component required to transfer data to OCS.2 votes
We are looking for customer feedback and requirements on this idea.
I’d like to be able to setup the agent using a pre-created clientId and clientSecret along with my tenantId – our servers require that we login with a different account than our normal user account and since credentials we're trying to pass to OCS with passthrough I was unable to get in the middle of that process and use my normal user account to authenticate for the agent install. My elevated admin account for the servers does not have access to email, so I wasn’t able to just add the account as a user in OCS. That caused me to…2 votes
Thank you for the feedback. We are researching how best to achieve the goal of specifying a client id and secret manually during install rather than forcing the user to login to OCS to retrieve the client id and secret.
Please let me know if you have questions, or additional information you wish to share.

PI to OCS for digital tags: Make it easier to distinguish real digital state values vs system digital states
PI to OCS creates an OCS stream type for PI digital tags with a property called DigitalStateName. This property includes both the "real" value of the tag's digital state set, but also the System Digital State (No Data, Error, Comm Fail, etc) when the Value property is null. It's difficult to distinguish what strings correspond to values and what strings correspond to errors.1 vote
The ability for data generating devices in the field to be redeployed to new assets and have the data in OCS reflect this reality.
* Device 123 is capturing data from Asset A and redeployed to Asset B at this timestamp.
* Device 456 is capturing data from Asset A and is replaced with Device 789 at this timestamp for Asset A.
When looking at data for Asset A, it should reflect the history of all the data from the various devices.1 vote
As a OMF developer, I would like a way to easily check if my OMF message succeeded and the message was processed and there were no errors. I would like to do this from my sending application. One possible way would be to send in the returned operation-id of a call to get its status(using same auth header).1 vote
Provide a way to upload spreadsheet data to OCS. This is manually entered information, compiled manually from multiple sources.1 vote
I think the "Add Connection" button should prompt the user if they want to create a "OMF Type" or a "PI System" type connection.
This was confusing for me, since I didn't realize that the "Add Connection" button functionality is DIFFERENT based on weather I have the TYPE set to "OMF" vs "PI SYSTEM".1 vote
Ability to integrate data from eWON Cloud IoT platform into OCS1 vote
As an admin, I need to install and configure a Connector or application that collects, buffers, and transmits data to OSIsoft Cloud Services so that I can start making displays that help me monitor my process.1 vote
