  2. Implement a Changelog/New features announcement functionality

    As an OCS user, it is often hard to find out about new features added to the platform as it is constantly being updated. Understanding what new features are coming, what changes are being made to existing features and any bug fixes is important. This is a feature I take advantage of quite often with other cloud platforms.

    Whilst changes will be continual with OCS, a monthly "re-cap" of what has happened will be very helpful. The service blog may be helpful for being notified of new/large features, getting access to more granular updates will help me understand how my…

  6. OCS Portal Relative Time Entry

    Inputs into the portal for start time/ end time should be able to be things like wild card (*) and other common relative time format (maybe PI relative time?)

  7. An Easy Way to Map Properties in Asset Rule Builder

    When I create an Asset Rule I have a Token Value Mapping, some of my Mappings have a delimiter in them. I would like to be able to easily specify to map that Mapping to the same words, but with a different delimiter, without having to define each one individually. For instance I would like to go from Gasrate to Gas rate and SRProd_velocity to SRP rod velocity.

  8. Extend Power BI Integration to Direct Query Mode

    OCS Power BBI Connector does not currently support Direct Query mode for Power BI Datasets - Import is the only option.

    Addition of this capability would enhance the functionality and is pretty much required when dealing with large datasets.

  12. Better Expose the Form Parameter in the API Console for Data View Data Calls

    Currently, when executing a Data Views data call in the API Console, there is a checkbox for "Return tabular data (form=tableh)", but the form parameter has five possible values. Instead of a checkbox, if the form Parameter were exposed as a drop down of possible values, or even a free-form text box, it would better expose the possible values for this parameter.

  13. Have the Form Parameter for Data Views Data Calls Accept form=json

    Currently, to receive the output in json form, the form parameter either needs to be left off the URL or set to form=default. Specifying form=json results in a 400 error, which can be confusing since it's a valid form. Having the parameter accept either form=json or form=default for the json response format would be beneficial.

  14. Allow Multiple Data Archives per PI to OCS Agent

    Allowing data transfer for tags from multiple PI Data Archives with one agent will help to cut down on the number of agent services, and therefore machines, that need to be involved to send data from PI to OCS.

  15. Allow for Exporting of Stream list from Portal as csv

    It would be beneficial to be able to export a list of streams in csv format (including columns such as stream name, stream id, type id) from the portal's SDS explorer, particularly after a search query has been executed so only a small subset of the streams would be included in the export. This csv file could then be used in other applications for easy stream name to stream id reference, or to simply document a list of streams to apply to certain search criteria.

  16. Show User Friendly Property Names by Default for All Tenant Users

    The customer considers the ‘Value’, ‘SystemStateCode’, and ‘DigitalStateName’ triplicate in the trend search results to be clutter. They want to show user-friendly property names by default for all users in their tenant.

  17. Configure PI to OCS Transfer Configuration via CSV or other file import

    In addition to building the transfer list via searching a data archive, it would also be good to allow the user to reference a file (e.g. CSV) that has a list of points to transfer.

  18. Edit a PI to OCS Transfer after it is created

    As a PI to OCS Administrator, I would like to be able to modify a PI to OCS Transfer after it is created. I may need to add data to the transfer - because we added new data sources, or because I may have missed some data that needs to be included. This is important so I don't have to delete the existing transfer and then rebuild it with the modified list of PI Points.

  19. Swap Assets in OCS Visual Trending Using URL

    I have hundreds of weather stations for each I create a link to visualize its properties in OCS Visual Trending.

    The process is tedious. It would be great if I could simply swap a part of the URL to change the context of the trending session.

  20. Support Saving Defined Assets as a Type in Rule Builder

    When I want to create assets with types from an asset rule, I am not usually aware of all the properties the type will need before hand. So generally I create the asset rule, create a type from one of the generated assets, and then add the asset type Id through the API.

    It would be great if it allows typing on the asset preview page.
