  1. Segregate Data from Different Customers within a Namespace

    Ability to segregate and view information (Data Ingress, Streams, Assets, etc.) from multiple customers/clients within a Namespace SO THAT it's very clear what data and system artifacts are related to each customer and SO THAT information doesn't accidentally get mixed up and exposed to the wrong customer.

    Ability to manage security from ingress to egress via the same mechanism.

    We’re currently working on the ability to remotely monitor and manage the configuration of OSIsoft’s edge software.

    This includes a dashboard for viewing the current health status of edge systems as well as a configuration UI to assist in configuring and managing configuration of edge systems.

    This feedback item originally referenced additional aspects of remote management which have now been split out into individual feedback items. Please take a moment to vote for these items if you are interested in the corresponding aspects of remote edge system management:

  6. Hosted Cloud Data Store

    We don't have the resources or skills to setup, administer, and manage our own PI System. We would just like to be able to use a hosted system delivered as Software as a Service (SaaS).

    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.

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

  8. 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.

  10. Implement a Changelog/New features announcement functionality

    As an OCS user, it is often hard to find out about new features added to the platform as it is constantly being updated. Understanding what new features are coming, what changes are being made to existing features and any bug fixes is important. This is a feature I take advantage of quite often with other cloud platforms.

    Whilst changes will be continual with OCS, a monthly "re-cap" of what has happened will be very helpful. The service blog may be helpful for being notified of new/large features, getting access to more granular updates will help me understand how my…

  11. Expose REST API for PI to OCS configuration

    Provide a documented REST API for PI to OCS connection and data transfer configuration. This would enable scripting against these configurations, allowing users to update their data transfers automatically, and manage them in a customer-specific way.

  15. Better OCS API time zone support

    OCS APIs need to provide better support for viewing data in different time zones / my local timezone. We should be able to encode UTC UTC+13 when making queries to the system.

  17. Make Documentation/User Manuals Great Again!

    In general latest versions of User Guides for all products are trying to be user-friendly, but this is taking its toll in form of less information. User Manuals nowadays should be considered as "Plug-and-play" quickstart guides, which are here to help customers to set up the product the way so it works. There used to be other, more in-depth written User Manuals several years ago, which were more like Reference Manuals. They covered all possible scenarios the customer could run into during the setup, they listed all errors, error messages, tips for troubleshooting etc.

    Please, make the Documentation Great again…

  20. Support different data retention via OCS

    Some customers need to store (retain) some, but not all, data for extended periods of time. For example, there can be a need to store any data used in regulatory reports for 5-7 years. Going forward, could OCS be an option for collecting/aggregating/storing these data?
