  1. Indicate that OMF was accepted

    As a OMF developer, I would like a way to easily check if my OMF message succeeded and the message was processed and there were no errors. I would like to do this from my sending application. One possible way would be to send in the returned operation-id of a call to get its status(using same auth header).

  2. Let me copy the URL for the "get data" Data Views API call directly from the Data Views configuration page

    As a Data Scientist, I want there to be an "easy copy" button so that I can quickly and easily copy the API URL that can be used to query for the Data View's interpolated data, with the parameters set in the configuration page.

    This will facilitate ease-of-use for citizen Data Scientsts who will be leveraging this API call in other tools, as well as save time for both expert and citizen Data Scientists, by generating the API URL with required fields such as AccountID, Namespace, DataViewID, startIndex, endIndex, interval, etc.

  3. Enable conditional substitution between fields in a Data View

    As a Data Scientist exploring or analyzing my dataset, I want to have the ability to configure a Data View to conditionally substitute the value from one field into another field (for instance if a field has a null value at one interval, fill that interval with the value from a different field)

    An example of a common use case would be regarding PI tags sent to OCS via the PI to OCS Agent. Consider a scenario where a numeric PI tag (eg. of type Float) had a period where it stored system Digital State values (eg. Bad Input) instead…

  4. Ability to support nested attributes in OCS Visualization

    Whilst OCS' SDS supports storing structures that include nested attributes, OCS Trending currently doesn't support that functionality.

    The workaround is to flatten the nested structure to a simple type, and get the OCS Trending to work.

  6. PI to OCS - Automatic Agent Upgrade

    Enable a more seamless upgrade experience for the PI to OCS Agent, the on-premises component required to transfer data to OCS.

  7. 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.

  8. Flatten nested streams

    I would like to be able to use the Stream Views capabilities in OCS to be able to flatten nested streams.

  9. Allow Reordering Traces in the Trend

    I was adding data items from a fictional plant where they have equipment 1-9 and I wanted the order to reflect the name instead of the order I clicked to add to the trend.

  10. PI to OCS credentials

    I’d like to be able to setup the agent using a pre-created clientId and clientSecret along with my tenantId – our servers require that we login with a different account than our normal user account and since credentials we're trying to pass to OCS with passthrough I was unable to get in the middle of that process and use my normal user account to authenticate for the agent install. My elevated admin account for the servers does not have access to email, so I wasn’t able to just add the account as a user in OCS. That caused me to…

    Thank you for the feedback. We are researching how best to achieve the goal of specifying a client id and secret manually during install rather than forcing the user to login to OCS to retrieve the client id and secret.

    Please let me know if you have questions, or additional information you wish to share.

    Warm regards,

  11. The Cursor Table's Icon Can Be Confusing

    In the lower pane of the workspace, the icon that is associated with the table doesn’t seem to “fit.” It has such a strong association with Google maps or a physical location. I think it might be better to use another icon. This is also where having tooltips would help.

  12. Disable the Hover Cursor

    I personally find the ever-present cursor really annoying. For example, sometimes I’m moving my mouse to scroll to a later point in time. Or I can imagine myself using my mouse to point something out to a colleague. In both instances, the cursor is not relevant and its presence is distracting (like a gnat!).

  13. Zoom Out and Revert Trend

    You can zoom in on a portion of the trace, but it doesn’t appear possible to zoom out and return to the starting point. Perhaps this feature will be implemented later? I expect to be able to zoom out again, in part, because this is the behavior I see in other applications. I also want to be able to get back to where I was before I zoomed.

  14. Y-Axis Modes Aren't Self-Explanatory

    There are three views of the traces. The “stacked” view where each trace is separately displayed is clear. But it isn’t obvious to me what the difference is between the other two views.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
