  3. Improve relative time configuration experience in the OCS Power BI Connector

    Improve the user experience for relative time configuration for the Data View start index and end index (e.g. '-6mo' to '') in the OCS Power BI Connector.

    Currently, relative time must be configured using M Query code in the Power Query Editor after the initial configuration of the Data View parameters as absolute values.

  5. Auto-Fill Tenant ID from Shared Links

    When a user clicks a shared link to launch OCS, they may get prompted for the tenant ID. Although the information is embedded in the links, it's not obvious to many users. It will be a much friendlier user experience if the tenant ID can be populated automatically.

  6. Returning from the Manage Data of a Stream shouldn't clear searches that got you there

    In Sequential Data Store if you search and find a stream and then view the data of that stream, when you press to go back to streams it removes your search. It would be ideal to keep the search there and the results of that search (incase you selected the wrong one and can only tell by the data you are looking at). In the case of nonsimple queries this is incredibly frustrating.

    Other things that would help would be to able to do stuff similar to the API console where you could have a history of searches, and be…

  7. Simple Searches in Portal Should Include Wildcards by Default

    The default search in sequential data store (maybe elsewhere in the portal too) should include *s on both ends for simple queries. This is important because adapters are setup to have prefixs (and PI to OCS) so finding what you want requires you to either remember the prefixes or remember that you need a star at the beginning.

  8. Improve user experience for building queries in Data Views

    As a Data View creator, I want an improved user experience for creating asset and stream queries in Data Views so that I do not need to understand stream search syntax or asset search syntax to create queries for my Data Views

  9. Display stream Description, TypeId when managing Data Views queries

    When running queries in Data Views, the query checks stream Description and TypeIds, but those values are not displayed in the UI. When these fields are the only match for a stream, it can be unclear why the streams were returned at all. Suggest displaying the stream Description and TypeId somewhere in that view to make this clear. This would also allow the user to use stream's Description.

  10. Enhance PI to OCS to be able to transfer PI Points with Float16 pointtype

    Currently PI Points with the Float16 pointtype are rejected by PI to OCS due to OCS and .NET not supporting the Float16 data type. It would be preferred for these PI Points to be handled as Float32 by PI to OCS, rather than rejected.

  11. PI to OCS Data Transfer dynamically based on Search Criteria Rather than Explicit Tag List

    Allow PI to OCS Data Transfer to be defined by Search Criteria such as Point Source or Tag mask and dynamically include\exclude points based on the criteria -- rather than building an explicit list of tags.

  12. OCS Data Views to offer Last Recorded Value retrieval mode

    *** Analog to the PI Integrator for BA feature ***

    Using Data Views when retrieving sampled interpolated values we cannot make use of a linear interpolation between two archived values since the result is not representative of the reality of the process.

    Say I have a value of 0 at 12h and a value of 10 at 13h. I don't want to interpolate every 10min with a slope of results between 0 and 10 for this 1h publication. I want to make use of the Last Recorded Value of 0 and keep this 0 throughout the intermediate interpolations until the…

  14. OCS Tenant-specific URL

    Ability to bookmark a URL, e.g. https://cloud.osisoft.com/alias, where opening that URL would automatically associate with my tenant. Clicking to sign in, the browser would know to use my alias, even if I have not checked the box to remember my tenant. This could be useful across devices, across browsers, or in private browsing.

  15. Minimize PI to OCS Post Installation Configuration Utility

    As a PI to OCS Administrator, I would like to be able to minimize the PI to OCS Post Installation Configuration Utility so I can more easily switch between running applications to gather necessary information to correctly configure my PI to OCS connection.

  17. 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.

  18. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. 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
