  1. Simplify access to objects using REST API

    Citizen data scientists, IT professionals and general OCS users need to use REST API methods in 3rd party applications - including Power BI - to access data or explore data using OCS Portal API Console.
    Typically objects not "custom created - where you can specify a human readable Id" and a GUID that requires the user to lookup the Id elsewhere or search through a list of objects is used.

  3. Transfer Community 'Owning Tenant' to another Tenant

    Ability to transfer the owning tenant / account administrator from one tenant to another tenant in a community.

    This would be useful for situations where one tenant (service provider) may get the community setup but then would like to transfer the ownership to another tenant moving forward.

    Additionally, it would support scenarios where the owning tenant leaves a peer community (with many tenants) and needs to transfer ownership.

    Yes, the selective use of delimiters will be supported by the Stream Metadata Rules. OSIoft recognizes that not all delimiters in a stream name or description are equally meaningful; they may be quite significant in one position and unimportant/ignored in another position (e.g. period used as delimiter and skipped within the same pattern).

    Development is currently working to complete this feature function.

  6. Audit connection for users and client connection

    I would like to be able to audit and understand who or what is connecting to my OCS tenant, and to be see what data and activities that a particular user, connection, or client is doing.

  9. Disable PII (Personally Identifiable Information) from being shared in Communities

    If personally identifiable information (PII) is ever capable of being shared across tenants in a Community, have a Community configuration option to turn this off for a specific community SO THAT PII can explicitly be protected.

    NOTE that currently, PII information is not shared across tenants for members within a community. If that ever changes, there needs to be this option to disable.

  10. Support PI to OCS Connections from 3rd party partners, without requiring Admin access

    I have a customer that I would like to collect data from. I would like to allow them to run PI to OCS to send their on-prem data to my OCS tenant. They are not part of our user database, and I do not want to grant that customer "Admin" level access to my entire tenant. Rather, I want to be able to allow this particular PI to OCS Agent write access to my tenant.

  17. Save PI Point Transfer List to easily rebuild transfer query

    Having to redefine the Pi point transfer list manually every time is inconvenient. For example, it currently takes 5 different queries for me to build my list, and this last time I forgot one. It would be nice if somehow you could save and reference a previous list of pi points or the application remembers what has already been included in a past transfer. It's really common that you might only need to add a few streams to the existing pi point transfer list. If you could save a list of previous transfers then add the new query for new…
