  1. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Improve OCS Permissions Management

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

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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

  13. Trend search result copy string

    After doing a general I would like to be able to highlight and copy a substring from one of the results from the results list so I can search on just that easily to find the streams I need.

  14. OCS APIs should allow requests with an Access Token issued by my Identity Provider

    A customer is building a Web application that needs to access both Microsoft APIs (secured using Azure Active Directory) and OCS APIs (secured using OCS Identity Server). In order for the customer to call both sets of APIs from their Web application, they currently need to authenticate the User with Azure Active Directory and perform a second authentication with OCS Identity Server.

    The Access Token issued by Azure Active Directory can be used to access Microsoft’s APIs and the Access Token issued by OCS Identity Server can be used to access OCS APIs, but not vice-versa. This means that the…

  15. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. 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.
