  1. Capture data from remote customer sites that don’t have a PI System

    As a company that provides services for remote assets at our customers sites, we need to collect data from our customer sites without having to deploy a full PI System SO THAT we can start providing our service weeks to months faster and save on deployment and infrastructure costs.  

    Ideally, we could deploy some PI Connectors to remote sites and store the data in a Cloud Data Store.

  2. PI to OCS - More configuration options when selecting PI tags to transfer

    Allow users more flexibility and options when finding and selecting PI tags to transfer to OCS. Current implementation only allows a single PI tag name search criteria, and limits one transfer between each PI Data Archive and OCS namespace.

  3. PI to OCS credentials

    I’d like to be able to setup the agent using a pre-created clientId and clientSecret along with my tenantId – our servers require that we login with a different account than our normal user account and since credentials we're trying to pass to OCS with passthrough I was unable to get in the middle of that process and use my normal user account to authenticate for the agent install. My elevated admin account for the servers does not have access to email, so I wasn’t able to just add the account as a user in OCS. That caused me to…

    Thank you for the feedback. We are researching how best to achieve the goal of specifying a client id and secret manually during install rather than forcing the user to login to OCS to retrieve the client id and secret.

    Please let me know if you have questions, or additional information you wish to share.

    Warm regards,

  5. Indicate that OMF was accepted

    As a OMF developer, I would like a way to easily check if my OMF message succeeded and the message was processed and there were no errors. I would like to do this from my sending application. One possible way would be to send in the returned operation-id of a call to get its status(using same auth header).

  8. "+ Add Connection" Button Functionality.

    I think the "Add Connection" button should prompt the user if they want to create a "OMF Type" or a "PI System" type connection.

    This was confusing for me, since I didn't realize that the "Add Connection" button functionality is DIFFERENT based on weather I have the TYPE set to "OMF" vs "PI SYSTEM".

  9. 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

  11. Install and configure a Connector at a site with few IT resources

    As an admin, I need to install and configure a Connector or application that collects, buffers, and transmits data to OSIsoft Cloud Services so that I can start making displays that help me monitor my process.
