  4. 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.

  5. Returning from the Manage Data of a Stream shouldn't clear searches that got you there

    In Sequential Data Store if you search and find a stream and then view the data of that stream, when you press to go back to streams it removes your search. It would be ideal to keep the search there and the results of that search (incase you selected the wrong one and can only tell by the data you are looking at). In the case of nonsimple queries this is incredibly frustrating.

    Other things that would help would be to able to do stuff similar to the API console where you could have a history of searches, and be…

  6. Simple Searches in Portal Should Include Wildcards by Default

    The default search in sequential data store (maybe elsewhere in the portal too) should include *s on both ends for simple queries. This is important because adapters are setup to have prefixs (and PI to OCS) so finding what you want requires you to either remember the prefixes or remember that you need a star at the beginning.

  7. Improve user experience for building queries in Data Views

    As a Data View creator, I want an improved user experience for creating asset and stream queries in Data Views so that I do not need to understand stream search syntax or asset search syntax to create queries for my Data Views

  8. Display stream Description, TypeId when managing Data Views queries

    When running queries in Data Views, the query checks stream Description and TypeIds, but those values are not displayed in the UI. When these fields are the only match for a stream, it can be unclear why the streams were returned at all. Suggest displaying the stream Description and TypeId somewhere in that view to make this clear. This would also allow the user to use stream's Description.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  13. Send OCS invitations directly to the desired IdP

    Currently, I must use a Microsoft IdP (MSA) account to accept the OCS invitation. If I ultimately want to use another IdP (e.g. Google), this means I have to temporarily create a MSA account just to accept the invitation. I would like to directly use my non-MSA account to accept the invitation.

  14. Read data from multiple streams with a single request

    As a developer working on an application that needs to execute a bulk load of MANY separate streams via the OCS REST API, I would like an option to submit a list of streams with start/end index as well as per-stream continuation token, and get raw data back for all the streams. The experience should be as similar as possible as when I'm reading a single stream and the response payload should include the identifier associated with each stream as well as a per-stream continuation token.

  16. OCS Data Views to offer Last Recorded Value retrieval mode

    *** Analog to the PI Integrator for BA feature ***

    Using Data Views when retrieving sampled interpolated values we cannot make use of a linear interpolation between two archived values since the result is not representative of the reality of the process.

    Say I have a value of 0 at 12h and a value of 10 at 13h. I don't want to interpolate every 10min with a slope of results between 0 and 10 for this 1h publication. I want to make use of the Last Recorded Value of 0 and keep this 0 throughout the intermediate interpolations until the…

  17. 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.

  19. OCS Tenant-specific URL

    Ability to bookmark a URL, e.g. https://cloud.osisoft.com/alias, where opening that URL would automatically associate with my tenant. Clicking to sign in, the browser would know to use my alias, even if I have not checked the box to remember my tenant. This could be useful across devices, across browsers, or in private browsing.
