  1. Managed Tenants for our Customers

    We are a company providing connected services leveraging operational data to our customers.

    Enable us to provision OCS Tenants on behalf of our customers, and manage things like data ingress, stream configuration, data mapping, context, and others for our customer managed accounts SO THAT our customers can just consume our service (and they paid for us to do these types of tasks).

    We need a way to onboard our customers easily with their own OCS tenants SO THAT we can expand our business to all our potential customers, not just those that already have a relationship with OSIsoft.

    This work is planned as part of our Community & stream data sharing functionality in OSIsoft Cloud Services (OCS). It will likely come after we release our initial data sharing functionality.

  2. Create Calculations using R

    As a data scientist, I need to be able to create calculations from data using R SO THAT I can create analytics using the language I'm familiar with and write the outputs of these analytics back to the data store.

  6. Scenarios for Stream Multiple Index

    Use this idea to tell us about your scenarios for OCS streams with multiple indices (besides just time).

    What are your scenarios? How do you need to access the data? How would you like to visualize it? etc.

  7. 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…

  9. 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?

  10. 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).

  13. Community Membership Expiration

    As a Community Lead, I need the ability to configure an expiration date on membership to a community SO THAT contractors automatically lose access after their contract / project is finished.

    In these cases, their member account should be deactivated (not deleted). If they want to gain access again, there should be a way for them to contact the Community Leads to reactivate their account.

  14. Rename / Anonymize Data Shared with Partners

    As a Data Steward, I would like to rename shared data / metadata that is shared with our partners/customers SO THAT the data is meaningful to them or SO THAT I can protect the source of the data.

  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.

  17. Share Personally Identifiable Information (PII) in Communities

    When I'm a member of a data sharing community, I see value in being able to view the names of community members from other Accounts SO THAT I know specifically who has access to our data and I can collaborate with my business partners in an easier way.

    If PII was shared in a community, users would have the ability to opt out of this functionality.

    Please capture any feedback, value prop, scenarios regarding PII sharing to this idea.

  18. PItoOCS Installation Footprint

    As a PI System Administrator, I would like a way to deploy PItoOCS in a secure and manageable way so that it is easy to maintain, and I can trust it is secure.

    Currently, OSIsoft recommends PItoOCS be installed on a separate computer from the Data Archive to which it connects. PItoOCS only supports a single connection to a single Data Archive in the current version.

    OSIsoft Product Management would like to better understand customer requirements about deployment of PItoOCS in their environment.

  19. Trend: Rolling / Moving Average

    The ability to plot the rolling or moving average of trended data SO THAT I can smooth out the data by filtering out the “noise” from raw data making it easier to see longer term trends.

  20. Zoom Out and Revert Trend

    You can zoom in on a portion of the trace, but it doesn’t appear possible to zoom out and return to the starting point. Perhaps this feature will be implemented later? I expect to be able to zoom out again, in part, because this is the behavior I see in other applications. I also want to be able to get back to where I was before I zoomed.
