  1. Don't Include PI Server name in Stream ID for PI to OCS

    For PI to OCS streams, the PI Server name is currently prefixed onto the Stream ID. Provide an option to remove the PI Server name and use some other type of prefix or hash instead.

    PI to Data Hub now provides the ability to obfuscate your on-prem PI Server names (Data Archive and AF Server) in the cloud. This new functionality is available in the PI to Data Hub agent 2.0.0.0.  


    Note: this setting is configured in the Post-Installation Configuration Utility which runs on the same machine as your PI to Data Hub agent.


    Please log into AVEVA Data Hub to download and install this latest version of the PI to Data Hub agent to enable this feature.

  2. 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.

    PI to Data Hub 2.0.0.0 now supports the ability to Edit an existing transfer. You can now add/remove data from the transfer configuration, change the time range, as well as other properties of the transfer.


    This functionality was released May 16, 2022. Please log into AVEVA Data Hub and download and install this latest version of PI to Data Hub to enable this new feature.

  3. PI to OCS - More configuration options when selecting PI tags to transfer

    Allow users more flexibility and options when finding and selecting PI tags to transfer to OCS. Current implementation only allows a single PI tag name search criteria, and limits one transfer between each PI Data Archive and OCS namespace.

    PI to OCS now supports a more flexible user experience when selecting PI Points for transfer. You can now search for PI Points by specifying several additional attributes such as Descriptor, Engineering Units, Point Type, Extended Descriptor, and Location Codes 1-5. Additionally, you can now build a list of PI Points by doing multiple searches, to accommodate PI Points that may not conform to a naming convention.

    This functionality was released in version 1.4.84.0 on August 12, 2020. Please log into OCS and download and install this latest version of PI to OCS to enable these features.

  4. PI to OCS browser dependency in PI to OCS Agent install

    There seems to be a dependency on IE, when installing the PI to OCS agent. This wasn't there in earlier versions. I kept getting Flash error during DUO authentication. I had FF and Chrome installed, and Flash was disabled. I ended up having to install IE, then disable Flash in IE, before I could get past the DUO error

    PI to OCS now uses the System Browser during installation. The install kit will now use the default system browser instead of the older embedded browser for user authentication to avoid known embedded browser issues.

    This functionality was released in version 1.4.84.0 on August 12, 2020. Please log into OCS and download and install this latest version of PI to OCS to enable these features.

  5. Capture data from remote customer sites that don’t have a PI System

    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.

    Edge Data Store (EDS) was designed to meet IoT/edge deployments where a PI System is not a good fit due to environment, location, operating system, network and/or management concerns. EDS provides standard data collection via Modbus TCP and OPC UA, custom data collection via an OSIsoft Message Format (OMF) REST endpoint, persistent data storage, an API for local data access and custom application development, an API for configuration and management at scale, and data transfer to PI Servers and OSIsoft Cloud Services (OCS) using OMF. EDS has a small installed footprint and runs on lightweight Linux or Windows based devices and is a great fit for data collection and local data access for remote assets, especially when network bandwidth is constrained or network availability is not guaranteed. Link to the EDS user guide:

    In addition to EDS, OSIsoft has released a…
