  1. The Cursor Table's Icon Can Be Confusing

    In the lower pane of the workspace, the icon that is associated with the table doesn’t seem to “fit.” It has such a strong association with Google maps or a physical location. I think it might be better to use another icon. This is also where having tooltips would help.

  2. Allow RedirectURL to be free form. (currently restricted to only http schemed ones).

    I'm building a mobile app to authenticate to OCS. Using OIDC Authentication, my app is expecting a Redirect URL of “host.exp.exponent”... but OCS won’t let me whitelist this Redirect URL, it tells me: “URL is invalid”.

    The issue is that OCS appears to artificially restrict redirect URLs to only http schemed ones.

    However, native app redirects are free form and not necessarily schemed. Lifting that restriction should solve the issue.

  4. OMF endpoint URL not easy to find.

    I think the OMF endpoint should be easier to find. I struggled with this for over half an hour trying to find the URL for my OMF endpoint.

    Also, I might be wrong on this, but shouldn't the URL include the https:// as a prefix?

    I used the OMF endpoint from OCS by using the "copy to clipboard" button, and pasted in my json configuration file for OSIsoft's Edge Data Store (EDS). The Result: I received an "error: Invalid Endpoint". The solution was to add the https:// in front of the url that I copy from OCS.

  5. "+ 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".

  6. Create Custom-Defined Patterns for Parsing Context from Stream Names

    Ability to create user-defined patterns that can be parsed from the stream name to add context. Currently the service uses delimiters to aid in the construction of a pattern. For example, a stream name with B1234 can be deconstructed into equipment: Boiler and equipment ID: 1234

  15. SDS API Summary Calls

    Working with the SDS, it would be nice to be able to specify non equal time interval when looking at monthly summaries for example.

    Alternatively, it might be useful to support providing an array of indexes defining the different interval as an alternative to only providing a count between two boundaries.

    Lastly, having the flexibility to ask/return only a subset of the summary value (out of the 12 provided) might help with performance and filtering out summary value that have no mathematical sense depending upon the data type and index type being used.

  20. Create an API that helps deliver an appropriate amount of data to the user or application

    As a data scientist or UI user, I don't know how much data I'm requesting when I ask for a sequence of data. However, I can provide some boundary conditions to help scope the request SO THAT OCS can deliver an appropriate level of detail for my use.
