  1. Segregate Data from Different Customers within a Namespace

    Ability to segregate and view information (Data Ingress, Streams, Assets, etc.) from multiple customers/clients within a Namespace SO THAT it's very clear what data and system artifacts are related to each customer and SO THAT information doesn't accidentally get mixed up and exposed to the wrong customer.

    Ability to manage security from ingress to egress via the same mechanism.

  2. Support different data retention via OCS

    Some customers need to store (retain) some, but not all, data for extended periods of time. For example, there can be a need to store any data used in regulatory reports for 5-7 years. Going forward, could OCS be an option for collecting/aggregating/storing these data?

  4. Store Images & Pictures into OCS

    Ability to store images as time bound data into OCS, and retrieve the images for viewing or modeling/analysis.

    Example scenario: a thermal camera takes a picture of a furnace and the image is used to extract data and performance KPIs about the furnace (stored back into OCS).

  8. 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.

  9. Define UOM on SDS Type Field in OCS Portal

    Ability to define Units of Measure on a Field in an SDS Type using the OCS Portal UI. Currently, the field type, name, and description can be edited, and fields can be marked as indexed. It is not possible in the UI to add UOM to a Field.

  11. Easier Experience for Editing Stream Types

    Stream Types are not editable in OCS SDS by design but it's painful to have to recreate a new type and do your work all over again when you need to make a change or forgot something.

    Please capture related scenarios you have around making changes to Stream Types here.

  13. Allow for Exporting of Stream list from Portal as csv

    It would be beneficial to be able to export a list of streams in csv format (including columns such as stream name, stream id, type id) from the portal's SDS explorer, particularly after a search query has been executed so only a small subset of the streams would be included in the export. This csv file could then be used in other applications for easy stream name to stream id reference, or to simply document a list of streams to apply to certain search criteria.

  14. Duplicate SDS type

    I am creating a large type (10+ properties), but am not sure exactly how I want the type to look. I would like to be able to easily in the portal duplicate an existing type and then make edits to it and save it as a new type, rather than having to type in and reselect each property selection. This would allow me to test my data in different organizational patterns to see what is best for my needs.

  17. Improve type dropdown for SDS fields

    When creating a type using the OCS Portal, the SDS field "Type" dropdown is a flat list including dozens of options, half of which are array types. This could be better organized to make common types (e.g. Double, Int32, DateTime, and String) easier to find in the list.

  18. Create multiple index types through OCS Portal

    Ability to save a type with multiple indices using the OCS Portal UI. Currently, it is possible to select multiple fields as "Indexed," but saving the type then results in an error as the index order is not defined.

  19. GeoJSON

    As a remote operations monitoring user, I would like to store locations and track movements of assets in a native GeoJSON data type / format for both querying as part of OCS and integration with peer cloud services that take advantage of geospatial positioning data.
