  1. Enable the inclusion of a Stream or Asset's Description in a column header

    We would like to add the Stream's description to the data view column label so that it is present in the dataset.

  2. Allow multiple identifying fields in column labels

    It is sometimes desired to select more than one of the options for the 'Identifying Field' for the column label, particularly when using PI to OCS streams so that 'Name' and 'EngUnits' can both be displayed.

  3. Shapes for Issue Remediation

    After creating initial Assets in LH project, the customer had a problem found with one Asset. Unable to determine the root cause of this new issue the users created fake Assets to shape the data to key measures suspected of being related to the problem... which proved to be very useful.
    - One fake asset was the troubled Asset reshaped to this particular use case
    - One fake asset was a high performing Asset of the same Asset Type reshaped to this particular use case to use as a comparison to the troubled Asset
    - Other fake assets of stable…

  4. Support for adding metadata and tags to streams shared via a community

    Allow for metadata and tags to be added to community streams so that community data sharing can be used in the same manner as other OCS streams.

    The metadata and tags should be kept private from the community, but simply reference streams shared with the community.

  5. Digital Twin and Asset Status shape

    After creating assets like conveyor belts, bottlers, labels, fillers, and more. The digital twin asset management was enabled. However, the shape of an Asset’s Status was a daily need for some users. Asset Status was a shape of each asset refined to its measures that indicated active state of the asset. Unfortunately, without asset shapes available the user was forced to manually create each Status data collection for each and every asset resulting in assets like: Pump 1, Pump 1 Status, Pump 2, Pump 2 Status, Pump 523, Pump 523 Status

  6. Digital Twin and Process shape of Asset Health

    Primary business needs didn’t stop at digital twinning, another key data shape would aid their operational foundation: a persistent shape of an asset's performance health. Although all measures and values are important to the Asset, a smaller sub-set of measures and values are indicative to the Asset's health, maintenance, and reliability. Want to persist such an asset data shape, be able to apply it to other like assets and make it useful to users who need to focus on maintenance and health without having to wade through all the other asset data.

  7. Digital Twin and shape of Asset Productivity

    ASSET DATA PRODUCTIVITY SHAPE. After creating assets like conveyor belts, bottlers, labels, fillers, and more in Lighthouse project. The business foundation was set to see and manage each asset via its digital twin.

Although all measures and values are important to the Asset, a smaller sub-set of measures and values are indicative to the Asset's productivity.

  10. Add querying of Data Views to Data View API

    There is currently no way to search for Data Views apart from retrieving them all and then searching. Other APIs such as the Assets API and the Streams API support querying so it would make sense for the Data Views API to as well.

  11. Implement a Changelog/New features announcement functionality

    As an OCS user, it is often hard to find out about new features added to the platform as it is constantly being updated. Understanding what new features are coming, what changes are being made to existing features and any bug fixes is important. This is a feature I take advantage of quite often with other cloud platforms.

    Whilst changes will be continual with OCS, a monthly "re-cap" of what has happened will be very helpful. The service blog may be helpful for being notified of new/large features, getting access to more granular updates will help me understand how my…

  13. Delete individual API Console Favorite

  14. Tag API Console Favorites

    Being able to save API Console favorite is great, but it would be nice to be able to tag or name them because sometimes the URL gets very long and it is hard to tell which one you want to go to.

  16. Need to manage multiple independent environments for Development, Testing, Staging, and Production purposes

    In order to confidently develop applications on top of OCS, we require different, independent environments to meet the needs of dev / testing / QA, staging, and production.

    These environments should typically be isolated as far as configuration, users, security, and data.

    There are also needs to promote objects in one environment to the other environments as they progress in the development & testing cycles.

  17. Enhance Metadata Rules in the OCS Portal to Include Stream IDs

    Currently, the OCS portal only exposes Stream Names when creating Metadata Rules, but the API exposes the Stream ID as well. It would be beneficial to create a Metadata Rule based on the Stream ID from the portal.

    Stream IDs are often more formulaic than names, and therefore can be better suited for parsing out data. PI to OCS streams are a common use case where the Stream ID contains useful metadata (data archive name, point ID) not found in the Stream Name.

  18. Allow Multiple Data Archives per PI to OCS Agent

    Allowing data transfer for tags from multiple PI Data Archives with one agent will help to cut down on the number of agent services, and therefore machines, that need to be involved to send data from PI to OCS.

  19. The ability to share the current API Console URI as an encoded URL, just like sharing a trend

    The ability share trends as encoded URLs is incredibly useful.

    Another area where exploration and collaboration can be done is in the API Console, and there I'd love the ability to craft a query URI and then be able to save that query with a single click and share it directly with a colleague--and I'm not talking about simply sharing the actual REST request URI, I'm more thinking of a link that would open the API Console with that URI already populated, so that my coworkers can start inspecting the same raw data that I'd presented.

  20. Improve the details/actions associated with OCS notifications

    When I was working on a project and logged into an account I saw a notification popup that said "There was an error acquiring a new access token. Your session will expire within 2 minutes. Please save any pending work". It's great that the system let me know I need to save my work, but it would be helpful if there were some remediation steps listed. What can I do about this situation if it persists? The idea is to apply an 'actionable information with links to details' mentality to all notifications.
