    Data Views now includes a new data endpoint that will allow you to query your data view to retrieve the stored values for the underlying data, instead of having the data interpolated to evenly spaced intervals.

    When making a data views query, you can now use either API endpoint for any data view:

    …\DataViews\[ID]\Data\Interpolated
    …\DataViews\[ID]\Data\Stored

    To help you visualize your data set before accessing it programmatically, you can simply toggle between the Interpolated or Stored preview in the data views configuration UI.

    Both the Stored and Interpolated Data Retrieval modes are also available in the OSIsoft Cloud Services Power BI Connector.

  2. Let me copy the URL for the "get data" Data Views API call directly from the Data Views configuration page

    As a Data Scientist, I want there to be an "easy copy" button so that I can quickly and easily copy the API URL that can be used to query for the Data View's interpolated data, with the parameters set in the configuration page.

    This will facilitate ease-of-use for citizen Data Scientsts who will be leveraging this API call in other tools, as well as save time for both expert and citizen Data Scientists, by generating the API URL with required fields such as AccountID, Namespace, DataViewID, startIndex, endIndex, interval, etc.

    There are now two ways to navigate from a data view, directly to the API Console, automatically populating the Data/Interpolated endpoint and relevant parameters.

    1) From the data view list page, click on a data view, and then open the context menu on the right side (in the data view overview pane). You will now see a “View in API Console” button
    2) When editing a data view, the “View in API Console” button is present below the table

    In both cases, this function will open a new browser tab to load the OCS Portal’s API Console and pre-populate the Data/Interpolated route for that particular data view, including inserting query parameters such as startIndex, endIndex, and interval.

    We’d love to hear any feedback!

  3. UOM Support in OCS Data Views

    As a data scientist, I want to know the UOMs for the data I am accessing and analyzing so that I have a more complete understanding of the data.

    Data views now supported including units of measure (UOMs) in your data sets! You can expose the UOM of a stream property or metadata field in two different ways:

    - Inside a column header by using the field label token {Uom} in your field label, useful if all of the data in the column is reported in the same UOM
    - In a separate column next to the corresponding data field, by editing the field and checking the “Include UOM as column” box, useful if the data in that column may have varying UOMs

    If you have any feedback on these new features, please let us know here on the Feedback Forum!

  4. Support Assets in OCS Data Views

    Support creating data views utilizing assets instead of individual streams.

    OCS Data Views now support the ability to query assets in addition to streams.

    When creating a query in your Data View, you can choose Asset as your query type. Please refer to the OCS Documentation for information on Asset Search syntax for querying assets by Asset Name, Id, Type, Metadata and Stream References.

  5. OCS DataView "Save as" function

    If there is a dataview existing, which might need to be altered or edited using the UI, but the original dataview should remain (i.e., because of dependency to existing applications accessing the dataview), it should be able to save the data view under a new Id/Name in order to preserve the original one. Specifically if the initial creation of the dataview was very time consuming that would be rather helpful.

    We have added a “duplicate” function in the OCS Portal so that you can easily copy an existing data view, providing a new Id/Name on creation. We hope this helps reduce efforts in building off of other data views, and can enable templatizing of common configurations.

    To duplicate a data view, navigate to the Data Views list page, click on the data view you wish to duplicate, and access the “Duplicate” option in the context menu on the right (in the data view overview pane).

  6. Add tooltip and doc. link for Shape selector in Data View config UI

    When configuring a data view, there is switch for Shape that allows a choice of Standard or Narrow (see screenshot), but there is no information on what this selection means. Users can see the affect by choosing one or the other and clicking on the Apply button, but it would be useful to have easy access to further information via a tooltip and/or link to documentation.

  7. Include Calculated Data in OCS Data Views

    As a data scientist, I often want to include calculated features in addition to the stream property data. Examples include min, max, average, etc. calculated at the same frequency as the interpolated stream property values.

    Data views now allows you to add OCS summaries into your dataset.

    Summaries will let you easily enhance your data sets beyond just field values – there are 12 summary types ready to choose from including min, max, mean, count, standard deviation, and more! See the full list in our docs here: https://ocs-docs.osisoft.com/Content_Portal/Documentation/SequentialDataStore/Reading_Data_API.html#get-summaries

    To add a summary to your data view, click the “+Add” button, and then use the form filters to find the field and summary types that you want to include. Select one or multiple to add them into your data view as new columns.

  8. Programmatic access to large tabular data sets

    Ability to define and query a shaped and formatted tabular time-series data set as a data view for use in data science and advanced analytics applications. .

    OCS stream data is interpolated at a given interval. Any time period can be queried and retrieved, and the data can be re-shaped to fit requirements of downstream applications.
