  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Restrict Access to Tenant's Users & Namespaces / Strict Mode

    Ability to restrict user access to an Tenant's Users and namespaces within a Tenant so that certain users/roles don't know other users in the tenant.

    Used for scenarios when a Tenant is storing multiple customer's access within the same Tenant prior to Community Data Sharing services being available.

    We have implemented a new feature in OCS called ‘strict mode’ that can be enabled by OSIsoft on a customer’s tenant. This feature is now in preview.

    Enabling strict mode hides several OCS portal menus, API routes, and tiles on the landing Dashboard to non-Admin users.

    The feature is intended for use for tenants that may have multiple company’s users logging into the tenant (example: connected services and their customers) and there is a need to hide administrative information and other user information from non admin users.

    Strict mode hidden menus include: Identity Providers, Users, Roles, Groups, Clients, Usage, Health, My profile only shows a user’s own information. Likewise, API routes goes to a forbidden error. Dashboard tiles hidden include: usage tile, health tile, quick links tile.

    To enable strict mode, please contact OSIsoft and we can enable it on your tenant. Please let us know your feedback.

  6. Pi to OCS agent needs to be collective aware

    The Pi to OCS agent is not collective aware. Instead, only a single archive can be mapped to the agent. Please allow the Pi to OCS agent to utilize collectives. This increases the system's overall resiliency.

  8. OCS Trends Configuration Needs to be Saved in Cloud - Not The Browser!!!

    Currently, the trend configuration information is stored locally on the browser using cookies and does not persist between different computers. When local storage is refreshed or deleted, the trends then need to be reconfigured. Also, jumping between workstations, such as in a plant, makes this infuriating as the trends can be different. Basically, if you make a change to a trend, those changes don't synch to other workstations and have to be done manually for each. As this is a cloud platform this does not match the pattern of use or expectation that trends\displays would persist. This information should be…

  10. OCS APIs should allow requests with an Access Token issued by my Identity Provider

    A customer is building a Web application that needs to access both Microsoft APIs (secured using Azure Active Directory) and OCS APIs (secured using OCS Identity Server). In order for the customer to call both sets of APIs from their Web application, they currently need to authenticate the User with Azure Active Directory and perform a second authentication with OCS Identity Server.

    The Access Token issued by Azure Active Directory can be used to access Microsoft’s APIs and the Access Token issued by OCS Identity Server can be used to access OCS APIs, but not vice-versa. This means that the…

  11. Automatically detect new AF Elements and replicate them to OCS

    As an AF Administrator, when I add new equipment to our plant and create new elements/attributes in AF to represent that equipment, I want that to be automatically replicated to OCS so I don't have to manually update a PI to OCS transfer to force that replication.

    I would like to be able to define what is replicated and not replicate my entire AF database. For example, I'd like to replicate all elements that subscribe to a selected template. Or, I'd like to replicate all child elements under a selected parent element.

    I would like to have this done on…

  12. Support for Analytics in OCS

    We would like to do roll ups for categories, and analyze them on a schedule. We are bringing data into OCS from multiple sources, and would like to run the analysis in OCS once all the data we need is in one place.

    An example, I'd like to know how many assets meet a certain condition.

    We can kind of do this in PI Vision, but we want hard metrics that track over time.

  13. Showing Tick Values in the Same Color as Traces Is Unclear

    When looking at the Asset, the Trend is displaying over the Y-axis value in the same color, this could be made a little clearer for readability.

  14. Trend search results should highlight only returned results

    When I search for something in the the Trend search, the results that are highlighted should only highlight fields that were searched on. Highlighting other text returned, as it currently does implies the search found it that way.

    For example if I search on SystemStateCode. It returns 2 results, 1 for the value property and 1 for the systemstatecode property of the PI to OCS stream called SystemStateCode. The systemstatecode stream name and property name are both highlighted. I know I have more PI to OCS tags on this system and that these streams properties are not being returned in…

  15. Hovering over a hidden variable in an OCS trend should not gray out shown variables

    As an OCS end user, when I hover over a hidden variable in my OCS trend, I would like for shown variables in the OCS trend to not gray out, leaving no visible variables in the trend. Hidden variables should not affect the visualization of the OCS trend.

    This work is currently planned for 2Q2021.

    There are a couple of requested UOMs we do not plan on adding: VWC (%) should use the existing % UOM and include Volumetric Water Content (VWC) in the name or description of the stream. Same for pH.

    Additionally, we are not adding currency at this time because of the many complications around conversions (since currency values fluctuate over time).

    We will continue to update this idea with status updates.

  17. OCS to IP.21 Data Egress

    Ability to egress OCS data to an on prem IP.21 system for the purposes of ensuring operators on the plant floor can visualize this data with their existing displays for real time decision making.

  18. Table Lookup in OCS Context / Assets

    Support Table Lookup functionality in OCS Context, similar to AF where the meaning of a value (Code 7) is deciphered via a lookup table.

  20. Use Community for Sharing within the same Tenant

    Ability to use Community to share data from different namespaces within the same tenant.

    An example would be a connected services customer who is storing data for their customers within their tenant. Data is segregated by Namespace. These customers may want to share subsets of data with each other. So the Community would contain 1 tenant and data from different namespaces within that tenant, and users of that tenant (who may only access the data through an external app like Power Bi or the Connect Service provider's own Portal).
