  1. 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…

  3. Remotely Configure Edge Systems

    Are their any time estimates that can be shared where remote management of Adapter configuration may be possible? Is there another non-OSIsoft technology that can enable remote management of Adapters?

  5. Send OCS invitations directly to the desired IdP

    Currently, I must use a Microsoft IdP (MSA) account to accept the OCS invitation. If I ultimately want to use another IdP (e.g. Google), this means I have to temporarily create a MSA account just to accept the invitation. I would like to directly use my non-MSA account to accept the invitation.

  6. Read data from multiple streams with a single request

    As a developer working on an application that needs to execute a bulk load of MANY separate streams via the OCS REST API, I would like an option to submit a list of streams with start/end index as well as per-stream continuation token, and get raw data back for all the streams. The experience should be as similar as possible as when I'm reading a single stream and the response payload should include the identifier associated with each stream as well as a per-stream continuation token.

  8. Configure PI to OCS Point List via CSV

    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.

  10. 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.

  12. Configure PI to OCS data transfer parameters

    As of this writing, the PI to OCS Agent sends data every 30 seconds or every 10,000 events and this is currently not configurable. The idea is to allow an administrator to configure these types of parameters so they could control how often data is sent from PI to OCS. This idea came from discussions where there are PI Tags that update infrequently and those are the only tags that are part of the PI to OCS transfer.

  13. Allow Assets to Reference Community Streams

    Allow for assets to reference community streams so that community data sharing can be used in the same manner as other OCS streams.

    These assets should be kept private from the community, but simply reference streams shared with the community.

  14. Monitor PI to OCS connection

    Sometimes, the PI2OCS agent seems to have some interruption in replicating data from a PI Data Archive into OCS. It would be beneficial to have some more monitoring options (in addition to what is available through the OCS portal) either by supporting performance counters in the Agent software or having some statistics available through the REST API. Either receiving a notification when data is not current anymore would be a great accomplishment. Connection stability is crucial for using OCS within a production environment.

  16. PI to OCS Data Transfer dynamically based on Search Criteria Rather than Explicit Tag List

    Allow PI to OCS Data Transfer to be defined by Search Criteria such as Point Source or Tag mask and dynamically include\exclude points based on the criteria -- rather than building an explicit list of tags.

  17. Expose REST API for PI to OCS configuration

    Provide a documented REST API for PI to OCS connection and data transfer configuration. This would enable scripting against these configurations, allowing users to update their data transfers automatically, and manage them in a customer-specific way.

  18. OCS Data Views to offer Last Recorded Value retrieval mode

    *** Analog to the PI Integrator for BA feature ***

    Using Data Views when retrieving sampled interpolated values we cannot make use of a linear interpolation between two archived values since the result is not representative of the reality of the process.

    Say I have a value of 0 at 12h and a value of 10 at 13h. I don't want to interpolate every 10min with a slope of results between 0 and 10 for this 1h publication. I want to make use of the Last Recorded Value of 0 and keep this 0 throughout the intermediate interpolations until the…

  19. PI to OCS include AF Attribute properties as metadata

    For PI Point Data References brought in from PI AF using PI to OCS, it would be valuable to to have additional metadata fields on the OCS streams to indicate AF information such as the attribute's Path and UoM. This could allow us to leverage some of the hierarchy we have already built to better understand the context of streams, as well as AF UoM that may be more useful than the PI Point's engunits.

  20. Autocomplete for SDS Stream MetadataValue
