  2. Allow bulk deletion of streams

    Deleting a large number of streams at once is a time consuming process as each deletion needs to be done separately. It would be beneficial to have a bulk deletion endpoint to make this a faster operation.

  4. Customize Asset Status Labels

    Users have pumps that have statuses of ON and OFF. Currently, they map to Good and OFF to Warning. However, pumps being off isn't really a warning sign to them, but only a normal condition.

  5. Enable refresh of SDS stream Manage Data page

    When on the Manage Data page for a stream I would like an on screen option to refresh the last value/first value/ range. This is because I want to be able to see if a new value came in for easy troubleshooting purposes. Currently you either need reload the whole page, or change the data call and apply it and then change it back and apply it again.

  6. 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.

  7. SDS Explorer - Hide Columns

    As an admin using SDS Explorer, I want to hide the columns like ID or type because I don't care about these and I want to see the entire stream name which is impossible even if I make other columns as small as possible.

  9. Implement a Display Digits setting for the OCS Portal to only render a select number of decimal places

    The PI Data Archive allows for the setting of Display Digits so that clients such as System Management Tools only renders a certain number of decimal places, regardless of how many are actually stored in the archives. We would like to this functionality to be added to OCS streams, and for the portal to abide by it when rendering recorded values.

  10. Duplicate SDS type

    I am creating a large type (10+ properties), but am not sure exactly how I want the type to look. I would like to be able to easily in the portal duplicate an existing type and then make edits to it and save it as a new type, rather than having to type in and reselect each property selection. This would allow me to test my data in different organizational patterns to see what is best for my needs.

  13. Enhance Metadata Rules in the OCS Portal to Include Stream IDs

    Currently, the OCS portal only exposes Stream Names when creating Metadata Rules, but the API exposes the Stream ID as well. It would be beneficial to create a Metadata Rule based on the Stream ID from the portal.

    Stream IDs are often more formulaic than names, and therefore can be better suited for parsing out data. PI to OCS streams are a common use case where the Stream ID contains useful metadata (data archive name, point ID) not found in the Stream Name.

  14. Store Images & Pictures into OCS

    Ability to store images as time bound data into OCS, and retrieve the images for viewing or modeling/analysis.

    Example scenario: a thermal camera takes a picture of a furnace and the image is used to extract data and performance KPIs about the furnace (stored back into OCS).

  16. Define UOM on SDS Type Field in OCS Portal

    Ability to define Units of Measure on a Field in an SDS Type using the OCS Portal UI. Currently, the field type, name, and description can be edited, and fields can be marked as indexed. It is not possible in the UI to add UOM to a Field.

  17. Improve type dropdown for SDS fields

    When creating a type using the OCS Portal, the SDS field "Type" dropdown is a flat list including dozens of options, half of which are array types. This could be better organized to make common types (e.g. Double, Int32, DateTime, and String) easier to find in the list.

  18. Create multiple index types through OCS Portal

    Ability to save a type with multiple indices using the OCS Portal UI. Currently, it is possible to select multiple fields as "Indexed," but saving the type then results in an error as the index order is not defined.

  20. Easier Experience for Editing Stream Types

    Stream Types are not editable in OCS SDS by design but it's painful to have to recreate a new type and do your work all over again when you need to make a change or forgot something.

    Please capture related scenarios you have around making changes to Stream Types here.
