  1. Allow RedirectURL to be free form. (currently restricted to only http schemed ones).

    I'm building a mobile app to authenticate to OCS. Using OIDC Authentication, my app is expecting a Redirect URL of “host.exp.exponent”... but OCS won’t let me whitelist this Redirect URL, it tells me: “URL is invalid”.

    The issue is that OCS appears to artificially restrict redirect URLs to only http schemed ones.

    However, native app redirects are free form and not necessarily schemed. Lifting that restriction should solve the issue.

  2. Programmatic access to large tabular data sets

    Ability to define and query a shaped and formatted tabular time-series data set as a data view for use in data science and advanced analytics applications. .

    OCS stream data is interpolated at a given interval. Any time period can be queried and retrieved, and the data can be re-shaped to fit requirements of downstream applications.

  4. Stacked Trend

    Besides the single-scale and multi-scale trend modes, I also want to stack the trends on top of one another so that traces don't overlap, and each trace has its own Y-axis scale.

    OSIsoft Cloud Services (OCS) now offers three Y-axis modes: single-scale, multiple-scale and stacked. Users can click the button in the upper-left corner to toggle between the modes.

  5. Hide / Show Traces

    As an end-user of the Trend app, when visualizing multiple variables in a trend, sometimes I want to hide a few of them so I can focus on the rest. Once done, I want to add the hidden traces back to the trend so I can see the whole picture.

  6. Quick Time Ranges

    As an end-user of the Trend app, I want to be able to pick from a group of pre-defined time ranges so that I can easily set the start and end time on the trend.

  7. Trend Session Recovery

    As an end-user of the Trend app, I want to be able to recover my trend session when I accidentally close the browser window or when there's a power failure so that I don't have to start from scratch again.

    Now users are able to recover their last trend sessions on the same devices so that they wouldn’t have to start from starch again after a power failure or accidentally closing their browser windows.

  8. OMF endpoint URL not easy to find.

    I think the OMF endpoint should be easier to find. I struggled with this for over half an hour trying to find the URL for my OMF endpoint.

    Also, I might be wrong on this, but shouldn't the URL include the https:// as a prefix?

    I used the OMF endpoint from OCS by using the "copy to clipboard" button, and pasted in my json configuration file for OSIsoft's Edge Data Store (EDS). The Result: I received an "error: Invalid Endpoint". The solution was to add the https:// in front of the url that I copy from OCS.

  9. "+ Add Connection" Button Functionality.

    I think the "Add Connection" button should prompt the user if they want to create a "OMF Type" or a "PI System" type connection.

    This was confusing for me, since I didn't realize that the "Add Connection" button functionality is DIFFERENT based on weather I have the TYPE set to "OMF" vs "PI SYSTEM".

  10. Make Documentation/User Manuals Great Again!

    In general latest versions of User Guides for all products are trying to be user-friendly, but this is taking its toll in form of less information. User Manuals nowadays should be considered as "Plug-and-play" quickstart guides, which are here to help customers to set up the product the way so it works. There used to be other, more in-depth written User Manuals several years ago, which were more like Reference Manuals. They covered all possible scenarios the customer could run into during the setup, they listed all errors, error messages, tips for troubleshooting etc.

    Please, make the Documentation Great again…

  11. Group Stream Properties Together in Search Pane

    Within the trend search pane, group properties of a stream under the stream as opposed to a flat list and for PI to OCS streams, and make it easy to get the Value and not StatusCode (which is unlikely to be trended).

    Ex:
    <StreamName>|Value
    <StreamName>|SystemStateCode

  12. Last modified timestamp on documentation topics

    As a documentation user I would like to see a last modified timestamp on each documentation topic. This would be helpful to keep track of when changes/ updates were made to individual topics.

  13. Streaming API - for real time visualization

    As a OCS real-time-visualization-client I require a Streaming API so that I can avoid continuously polling the REST API.

    Similar to the WSS Chanels in PI WebAPI

    Or something like PI WebAPI Stream Updates could also work

  14. Create Custom-Defined Patterns for Streaming Metadata from Stream Names

    Ability to create user-defined patterns that can be parsed from the stream name to add context. Currently the service uses delimiters to aid in the construction of a pattern. For example, a stream name with B1234 can be deconstructed into equipment: Boiler and equipment ID: 1234

  16. Include Calculated Data in OCS Data Views

    As a data scientist, I often want to include calculated features in addition to the stream property data. Examples include min, max, average, etc. calculated at the same frequency as the interpolated stream property values.

  18. Automated Creation of Stream Metadata from Stream Names with Delimeters

    Ability to parse meaningful metadata from stream names to add context. Utilize the delimiters in a stream name to define a pattern for parsing metadata.
    Stream metadata enriches the sequential data, and is valuable to OCS users for data organization, easier finding of desired data, and richer analysis.
