  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.

  2. Monitor PI to OCS connection

    Sometimes, the PI2OCS agent seems to have some interruption in replicating data from a PI Data Archive into OCS. It would be beneficial to have some more monitoring options (in addition to what is available through the OCS portal) either by supporting performance counters in the Agent software or having some statistics available through the REST API. Either receiving a notification when data is not current anymore would be a great accomplishment. Connection stability is crucial for using OCS within a production environment.

    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:

  8. 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.

  15. 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.

  18. 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…
