  1. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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).

  8. Trend search should have indicator to show which streams are already present in the trend display

    As an operations engineer, when searching for stream properties on the trend search, I want to know what stream properties are already showing on the trend so that it'll be obvious to me what items are trending and that I don't have to spend time double checking to see if I have the correct items showing.

  9. 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. 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.

  12. 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…

  13. 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.

  15. Trend Data Filtering

  16. Improve Consistency with OCS API

    Some of the different OCS API resources (streams, assets, data views, etc) use different methods of accessing the information.

    For example, in some you may use the ID, others may use the name, others may use ID or name.

    This inconsistency makes it more difficult for a developer to leverage the API.

  17. Improve OCS Permissions Management

    Make improvements to OCS permissions management and user experience throughout the platform.

    If I don't have permissions to something, don't show it.

    Set default permissions on streams from the beginning, etc.

  18. Better OCS API time zone support

    OCS APIs need to provide better support for viewing data in different time zones / my local timezone. We should be able to encode UTC UTC+13 when making queries to the system.

  19. Trend colors of removed attributes should be reused

    I was trying to create a couple of trends to show other people. I created one trend and saved off the URL to share with other people. I then deleted the attributes and added new ones. The earlier colors are easier to see so I would prefer to reuse those in the trend as the later colors can have less contrast.

    Also in writing this up I realized I should have hit RESET to make a NEW trend and avoided this issue, but the naming wasn't expected.

  20. Throttle multiple identical error messages from appearing on the screen

    As a user getting multiple of the same error can be very distracting. For instance if you are on the preview route you get an error on every keystroke
