  1. App Support for Community Data Sharing

    The ability to publish one app (such as a Power BI report, or custom web application) that gets used for multiple customers.

    Customers should be able to log into the app using the OCS credentials from their Account (passed through to OCS), and get access to any data that's shared with them.

    We don't want to publish the app for each customer individually. There might need to be a way to link an app into a Community that gives that app access to data shared in that community.

  2. Provide Gauge Charts in OCS Visualization

    It would be nice to provide a wide range of visualization panels like Multibar graph panels, Gauges, maps etc with more features to edit and visualize based on time and also metrics. Supports for other data sources with minimal efforts would also be great.

  4. Auto suggest SDS Type from Data JSON

    As a developer quickly trying to store data in OCS I would like to be able to send the data JSON that will be coming and to be able to get a suggested SDS type based on this JSON data. I envision this is similar to paste special in VS where you get a class from a json object. I would expect as a user to be able to edit this (ideally from a nice GUI, but the JSON would be ok too)

  7. Auto Cursors Aren't Self-Explanatory

    when clicking the line, it would be helpful to add a text to the max and min markers to denote what they are. I was confused as to why those two markers showed up. This would be consistent with the fact that the average line marker.

  8. Zoom Functionality Isn't Intuitive

    I was confused with the zoom button functionality. I was expecting that when having zoom activated and clicking on the screen would zoom in at a given rate around the time-stamp I clicked at, but it seems that it cancels the zoom. Clicking on a point and automatically zooming is a common behavior in many applications. Other users might expect the same. Right clicking is usually associated with zooming out. I was able to zoom in by clicking and dragging, but it took some getting used to.

  9. Handling Replaced or Redeployed Devices

    The ability for data generating devices in the field to be redeployed to new assets and have the data in OCS reflect this reality.

    Scenarios:
    * Device 123 is capturing data from Asset A and redeployed to Asset B at this timestamp.

    * Device 456 is capturing data from Asset A and is replaced with Device 789 at this timestamp for Asset A.

    When looking at data for Asset A, it should reflect the history of all the data from the various devices.

  10. Trend Cursor: Set a Specific Time

    I'd like the ability to enter a specific trend cursor time SO THAT I can see the cursor information at a specific time (could be an interpolated time) and multiple cursors at a specific time range.

    In this case, I have other timestamp information when I know an event/time period has happened and I want to hard code that into my cursors so I get the exact stats & calculated information.

  11. Log the usage of a clientID for data ingress/egress

    In maintaining and managing IoT devices I would like to be able to watch my data ingress and egress and general connections to OCS based on a clientIds to see if one has been compromised and is being used differently than expected.

  14. Find Assets by Latitude & Longitude

    I would like to find Assets by a boxing query / geo-fencing of their Longitude & Latitude locations SO THAT I can find all the Assets in a geographical area. .

    This could be for static assets (like a weather station or building) or mobile assets (like a car, truck, ship at sea, or sheep on a farm).

  16. Indicate that OMF was accepted

    As a OMF developer, I would like a way to easily check if my OMF message succeeded and the message was processed and there were no errors. I would like to do this from my sending application. One possible way would be to send in the returned operation-id of a call to get its status(using same auth header).

  17. Enable conditional substitution between fields in a Data View

    As a Data Scientist exploring or analyzing my dataset, I want to have the ability to configure a Data View to conditionally substitute the value from one field into another field (for instance if a field has a null value at one interval, fill that interval with the value from a different field)

    An example of a common use case would be regarding PI tags sent to OCS via the PI to OCS Agent. Consider a scenario where a numeric PI tag (eg. of type Float) had a period where it stored system Digital State values (eg. Bad Input) instead…

  18. Ability to support nested attributes in OCS Visualization

    Whilst OCS' SDS supports storing structures that include nested attributes, OCS Trending currently doesn't support that functionality.

    The workaround is to flatten the nested structure to a simple type, and get the OCS Trending to work.

  20. 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.
