  1. Community Data Sharing: Share Data with External Partners

    As a company that needs to share data with external business partners, I want to have a way to provide secure access to our company's data through the Cloud SO THAT we can share data with partners that don't have a PI System, without making external copies of the data, and having a more standard way of sharing data with our external partners.

    We have started development on Community Management features and Stream data sharing in OSIsoft Cloud Services (OCS) to enable sharing of operational data across tenants.

    If you have an active use case where you are trying to share data with external business partners of yours and you interested in trying this out once we have reached a point in our development where this is possible, please let us know and we will add you to our list!

  2. Ensure Data Segregation for Data Sharing - Multi-tenant System

    As a service provider, I need to ensure that our customers can NEVER see another customer's data or even meta-data (that they exist) SO THAT customers can't see any information about their competitors and who we work with.

    As a industrial operating company that shares data with partners and service providers, I need to ensure that our data is only accessible to those that we share with SO THAT we can ensure our data and company's intellectual property (IP) is safe and secure.

    We have started development on Community Management features and Stream data sharing in OSIsoft Cloud Services (OCS) to enable sharing of operational data across tenants.

    As part of the Community creation workflow, we are working on a way that Communities are formed without exposing other customer accounts/tenants in the process.

    Additionally, Namespaces can now be used to segregate customer data (if you’re providing a service to those customers), or the data can be stored in their own OCS tenant/account and then shared via Community data sharing functionality (when it becomes available).

  3. Data Constraints: Limit Amount of History in Data Sharing

    Ability to define and constrain the scope of data shared. For example, limit the amount of data history shared with an external partner (ex: week of data, month of data, year of data, etc.). Or a specific time range. There should be no limits on when the time range can exist (i.e. able to share data from 5 years ago).

  4. Conditional Sharing of Data - Contract Manufacturing

    As a contract manufacturer (or partner of a CM), I need to only share data with my partner (customer) while I am manufacturing their product on my equipment SO THAT they don't get sent data from another customer.

    The Contract Manufacturing equipment is used to produce products from multiple customers so data can only be shared with each partner when their product is being manufactured.

  5. Business Partner Collaboration

    Enable a way for external organizations that are partners that are sharing data and displays to also communicate & collaborate with each other in the context of their sharing community SO THAT everyone in the community can leverage the expertise of the community members and work together to meet their collective business objectives.

    Support a chat/message board to enable collaboration and sharing of ideas within a 'community space'.

  6. Handle Unit of Measure (UOM) Conversion Across Companies

    As a company that receives data from our partners or customers, I need to be able to convert/transform shared data from my partners into different Units of Measures (UOMs) that our company works with SO THAT we can work in the units we're comfortable with and our analytics and visualizations are built on top of.

    We are currently planning on supporting UOM conversions for shared data and in the OCS platform in relation to this work.

  7. Share data from AF Hierarchy

    As a company that shares our data with partners, I want to define what data to share with partners via our existing AF model SO THAT I can use this existing context to know what we're sharing with Partners.

    We have started development on Community Management features and Stream data sharing in OSIsoft Cloud Services (OCS) to enable sharing of operational data across tenants.

    This will include REST API access to data shared in a Community.

  12. Community Membership Expiration

    As a Community Lead, I need the ability to configure an expiration date on membership to a community SO THAT contractors automatically lose access after their contract / project is finished.

    In these cases, their member account should be deactivated (not deleted). If they want to gain access again, there should be a way for them to contact the Community Leads to reactivate their account.

  15. Share Personally Identifiable Information (PII) in Communities

    When I'm a member of a data sharing community, I see value in being able to view the names of community members from other Accounts SO THAT I know specifically who has access to our data and I can collaborate with my business partners in an easier way.

    If PII was shared in a community, users would have the ability to opt out of this functionality.

    Please capture any feedback, value prop, scenarios regarding PII sharing to this idea.

  16. Community Exit Strategy

    As a Community Lead, I need to stop sharing data with a partner/vendor/service provider that is providing services to me but we decide to terminate the relationship (perhaps choose a different service provider).

    In this situation, we would like to still retain access to the history of the community because you might need to determine what the vendor was doing with your equipment back in history.

    NOTE: Please use the comments section for this idea to help document your requirements and use cases when a sharing relationship or contract is terminated.

    We need to do more customer research on what the expectations are when a Community is dissolved (perhaps the business relationship has gone another direction) … what happens to the old Community information? what stays around and is accessible vs not anymore?

  17. Short Term / Temporary Community

    As a Community Lead, I need be able to support temporary Communities by deactivating a Community after a project is completed (in a couple of months) SO THAT we can protect our data that they no longer need access to.

    Example Use Case: CompanyA contracts an OEM to manufacture custom equipment for their manufacturing process. While the OEM is building and testing the equipment, the CompanyA wants access to the data to support design and testing efforts at the OEM site. This way, CompanyA's engineers can monitor and provide input into the development and qualification process while working remotely. Once…
