  1. 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.

    Data views now allows you to add OCS summaries into your dataset.

    Summaries will let you easily enhance your data sets beyond just field values – there are 12 summary types ready to choose from including min, max, mean, count, standard deviation, and more! See the full list in our docs here: https://ocs-docs.osisoft.com/Content_Portal/Documentation/SequentialDataStore/Reading_Data_API.html#get-summaries

    To add a summary to your data view, click the “+Add” button, and then use the form filters to find the field and summary types that you want to include. Select one or multiple to add them into your data view as new columns.

  2. Support Assets in OCS Data Views

    OCS Data Views now support the ability to query assets in addition to streams.

    When creating a query in your Data View, you can choose Asset as your query type. Please refer to the OCS Documentation for information on Asset Search syntax for querying assets by Asset Name, Id, Type, Metadata and Stream References.

  3. Automated Creation of Stream Metadata from Stream Names with Delimiters

    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.

  18. PI to OCS browser dependency in PI to OCS Agent install

    There seems to be a dependency on IE, when installing the PI to OCS agent. This wasn't there in earlier versions. I kept getting Flash error during DUO authentication. I had FF and Chrome installed, and Flash was disabled. I ended up having to install IE, then disable Flash in IE, before I could get past the DUO error

    PI to OCS now uses the System Browser during installation. The install kit will now use the default system browser instead of the older embedded browser for user authentication to avoid known embedded browser issues.

    This functionality was released in version 1.4.84.0 on August 12, 2020. Please log into OCS and download and install this latest version of PI to OCS to enable these features.
