  2. PI to OCS - Import list of tags

    Be able to import a list of tags from PI into PI to OCS data transfer configuration to simplify the user experience when I already have the list of tags I need.

  3. 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.

  4. Connection to OCS through Azure Data Factory (ADF)

    The ability to store data to OCS from Azure Data Factory (ADF) and also to retrieve data from OCS to ADF. The use case is that we get data from a variety of data sources like CSV, JSON, XML, PDF, SQL Backups etc. How about mapping the attributes from these sources directly to attributes in a stream in OCS in ADF so that the process of ingestion can be automated? This can mainly help in the cleaning,standardizing , processing and ingesting the data in bulk to OCS in one single place.
    Also, If there is a way to get the…

  5. PI to OCS ability to include annotations

    In addition to including the "Is Annotated" flag, I would like the ability to include the actual annotations with a PI to OCS data transfer

  6. Configure PI to OCS metadata to sent to OCS

    I would like to be able to select which fields to send to OCS as meta data from PI. Currently the options include High, Medium, Low. none. I would like a 5th option that allows me to pick and choose which fields are important to me to send.

  7. Enhance PI to OCS to be able to transfer PI Points with Float16 pointtype

    Currently PI Points with the Float16 pointtype are rejected by PI to OCS due to OCS and .NET not supporting the Float16 data type. It would be preferred for these PI Points to be handled as Float32 by PI to OCS, rather than rejected.

  8. PI to OCS Data Transfer dynamically based on Search Criteria Rather than Explicit Tag List

    Allow PI to OCS Data Transfer to be defined by Search Criteria such as Point Source or Tag mask and dynamically include\exclude points based on the criteria -- rather than building an explicit list of tags.

  9. PI to OCS include AF Attribute properties as metadata

    For PI Point Data References brought in from PI AF using PI to OCS, it would be valuable to to have additional metadata fields on the OCS streams to indicate AF information such as the attribute's Path and UoM. This could allow us to leverage some of the hierarchy we have already built to better understand the context of streams, as well as AF UoM that may be more useful than the PI Point's engunits.

  10. Minimize PI to OCS Post Installation Configuration Utility

    As a PI to OCS Administrator, I would like to be able to minimize the PI to OCS Post Installation Configuration Utility so I can more easily switch between running applications to gather necessary information to correctly configure my PI to OCS connection.

  11. Support multiple PI to OCS Transfers with one agent, from a single Data Archive

    As a System Administrator in charge of deploying software at my organization, I would like PI to OCS to support multiple transfers from a single Data Archive, with a single agent so my Data Owners can manage the transfer of data without impacting other Data Owners in my organization. This will also provide more granular control for smaller data transfers, instead of one single data transfer that could encompass 100,000's to 1 million PI Points.

  12. Sync PI to OCS Value Property UoMs with the source tag's EngUnits

    By placing the engineering units from the data archive into a stream metadata, it precludes their usage within OCS's UoM functionality (such as data view column labels for example). The EngUnits won't be trivial to sync into OCS, but an attempt to find a match, then prompting for manual intervention where necessary would be helpful to get the engunits synced into something more functional.

  13. Configure PI to OCS data transfer parameters

    As of this writing, the PI to OCS Agent sends data every 30 seconds or every 10,000 events and this is currently not configurable. The idea is to allow an administrator to configure these types of parameters so they could control how often data is sent from PI to OCS. This idea came from discussions where there are PI Tags that update infrequently and those are the only tags that are part of the PI to OCS transfer.

  14. Configure PI to OCS Transfer Configuration via CSV or other file import

    In addition to building the transfer list via searching a data archive, it would also be good to allow the user to reference a file (e.g. CSV) that has a list of points to transfer.

  15. Allow Configuration of PI to OCS Proxy Settings

    Allow for manual configuration of proxy settings for the PI to OCS Agent. Items such as the endpoint to use as well as how to authenticate (default credentials, specified username/password).

  16. 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.

  17. 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…

  18. Support Custom Prefix on PI to OCS Streams

    I am bringing some of my customers' PI Data into OCS. I would like to be able to add a prefix to the data within a particular transfer, because it is very possible my customers could have PI tags with the same name, and even PI Servers that are named the same. I am concerned about the possibility for naming conflicts.

  19. Monitor PI to OCS connection

    Sometimes, the PI2OCS agent seems to have some interruption in replicating data from a PI Data Archive into OCS. It would be beneficial to have some more monitoring options (in addition to what is available through the OCS portal) either by supporting performance counters in the Agent software or having some statistics available through the REST API. Either receiving a notification when data is not current anymore would be a great accomplishment. Connection stability is crucial for using OCS within a production environment.
