  1. Allow for Exporting of Stream list from Portal as csv

    It would be beneficial to be able to export a list of streams in csv format (including columns such as stream name, stream id, type id) from the portal's SDS explorer, particularly after a search query has been executed so only a small subset of the streams would be included in the export. This csv file could then be used in other applications for easy stream name to stream id reference, or to simply document a list of streams to apply to certain search criteria.

  2. Show User Friendly Property Names by Default for All Tenant Users

    The customer considers the ‘Value’, ‘SystemStateCode’, and ‘DigitalStateName’ triplicate in the trend search results to be clutter. They want to show user-friendly property names by default for all users in their tenant.

  3. Data Update Mechanism

    Have a mechanism to subscribe to data change updates on the platform so applications don't need to constantly poll for changes.

  4. Swap Assets in OCS Visual Trending Using URL

    I have hundreds of weather stations for each I create a link to visualize its properties in OCS Visual Trending.

    The process is tedious. It would be great if I could simply swap a part of the URL to change the context of the trending session.

  5. Support Saving Defined Assets as a Type in Rule Builder

    When I want to create assets with types from an asset rule, I am not usually aware of all the properties the type will need before hand. So generally I create the asset rule, create a type from one of the generated assets, and then add the asset type Id through the API.

    It would be great if it allows typing on the asset preview page.

  6. Data view refresh preview option

    In the portal I would like to have the Refresh Preview button as an option at all times on the screen. This button currently appears if you have Auto Refresh off and you make a change to what would be in the table. In my case I knew they were updates to my data over the time range and I wanted to see these updates in the preview and had to refresh the whole page.

  7. Duplicate SDS type

    I am creating a large type (10+ properties), but am not sure exactly how I want the type to look. I would like to be able to easily in the portal duplicate an existing type and then make edits to it and save it as a new type, rather than having to type in and reselect each property selection. This would allow me to test my data in different organizational patterns to see what is best for my needs.

  12. OCS Portal Relative Time Entry

    Inputs into the portal for start time/ end time should be able to be things like wild card (*) and other common relative time format (maybe PI relative time?)

  14. Improve relative time configuration experience in the OCS Power BI Connector

    Improve the user experience for relative time configuration for the Data View start index and end index (e.g. '-6mo' to '') in the OCS Power BI Connector.

    Currently, relative time must be configured using M Query code in the Power Query Editor after the initial configuration of the Data View parameters as absolute values.

  15. An Easy Way to Map Properties in Asset Rule Builder

    When I create an Asset Rule I have a Token Value Mapping, some of my Mappings have a delimiter in them. I would like to be able to easily specify to map that Mapping to the same words, but with a different delimiter, without having to define each one individually. For instance I would like to go from Gasrate to Gas rate and SRProd_velocity to SRP rod velocity.

  16. Extend Power BI Integration to Direct Query Mode

    OCS Power BBI Connector does not currently support Direct Query mode for Power BI Datasets - Import is the only option.

    Addition of this capability would enhance the functionality and is pretty much required when dealing with large datasets.

  20. Auto-Fill Tenant ID from Shared Links

    When a user clicks a shared link to launch OCS, they may get prompted for the tenant ID. Although the information is embedded in the links, it's not obvious to many users. It will be a much friendlier user experience if the tenant ID can be populated automatically.
