  1. More Authentication Options like Open ID, Oauth

    I need more authentication options than windows/Active Directory such as Open ID, Oauth (or other open standards) SO THAT customers have a variety of ways to authenticate into the system.

  2. Comply with GDRP Data Storage Requirements - Asia Pacific (APAC)

    We need to ensure that when our company's data is stored in the cloud, it is stored within Asia (APAC) SO THAT we can comply with local regulations and stay in compliance.

    We need to make sure the servers that our data resides on is located within Asia.

  5. Store pre-computed averages to accelerate data scrubbing operations in a UI tool

    As a user that is looking to visually identify past behaviors in long sequence ranges, I would like to be able to scroll backward, forward, and zoom in quickly SO THAT I can isolate the appropriate behavior rapidly. Other back-end systems and UI tools support pre-computed totalizations (especially averages) to help users get a better trending / analytical experience. If I record 1Hz data, I probably don’t need to initially see every data point when they trend 6 months of data… so, having those always available would be nice (1M, 60M, 12h, 24h, 5d, 7d, 2wk, 4wk, 6mo, 1y).

  7. Global Context Library & Mapping

    Ability to define a global library of asset templates and assets and then map site data structures into it SO THAT we can standardize easier across sites when the underlying systems and equipment structures are different (and focused more on automation design rather than the use of the data).

  9. Deployment of OCS onto Amazon Web Services (AWS)

    Deployment of OSIsoft Cloud Services into Amazon Web Services (AWS) rather than Microsoft Azure.

    Note that the hosting platform for OCS shouldn’t matter since the interface to our services are available via public REST APIs.

  11. Mask data / metadata before it's shared

    As a Data Steward of my company's data, I need to be able to mask the names of data such as attribute names, descriptions, UOMs, etc. before sharing with my partners SO THAT it's not easy for someone else to understand and reverse engineer our process through the data. We want to protect our IP.

    Our partner just needs to get the raw values and they need to know the typical range for the attribute but they don't need to know what it means.

  13. Drive Data Sharing from On-Premises Display

    Drive data sharing from a shared on premises PI Vision display.

    For example, selecting to share a display (or set of displays) externally would automatically copy all supporting data to OSIsoft Cloud Services. The display definition and data are automatically moved.

  18. Community Exit Strategy

    As a Community Lead, I need to stop sharing data with a partner/vendor/service provider that is providing services to me but we decide to terminate the relationship (perhaps choose a different service provider).

    In this situation, we would like to still retain access to the history of the community because you might need to determine what the vendor was doing with your equipment back in history.

    NOTE: Please use the comments section for this idea to help document your requirements and use cases when a sharing relationship or contract is terminated.

  20. Temporarily Share Data

    As a company that shares data with partners, we need to share data temporarily (has an expiration) SO THAT my partner can see the data they need right now when they need it but they don't have access to it for ever.
