  7. 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.

  8. Short Term / Temporary Community

    As a Community Lead, I need be able to support temporary Communities by deactivating a Community after a project is completed (in a couple of months) SO THAT we can protect our data that they no longer need access to.

    Example Use Case: CompanyA contracts an OEM to manufacture custom equipment for their manufacturing process. While the OEM is building and testing the equipment, the CompanyA wants access to the data to support design and testing efforts at the OEM site. This way, CompanyA's engineers can monitor and provide input into the development and qualification process while working remotely. Once…

  13. Visualize Attributes & Asset Measurements in the Trend

    I would like to be able to visualize a string in the Trend. The string would be from an Asset Measurement.

    When trending asset measurements, I also want to see the attributes associated with the same asset so that I can understand the context.

  15. Create Custom-Defined Patterns for Creating Assets from Stream Names

    Ability to create user-defined patterns that can be parsed from the stream name to create Assets, Asset Attributes, & Asset Measurements. Currently the service uses delimiters to aid in the construction of a pattern.

    This would help customer create and manage Assets in Bulk.

    For example, a stream name with B.1234.Temp can be deconstructed into Assets: Boiler 1234 with related data such as Temperature referencing the stream.

  18. Allow Reordering Traces in the Trend

    I was adding data items from a fictional plant where they have equipment 1-9 and I wanted the order to reflect the name instead of the order I clicked to add to the trend.

  19. PI to OCS credentials

    I’d like to be able to setup the agent using a pre-created clientId and clientSecret along with my tenantId – our servers require that we login with a different account than our normal user account and since credentials we're trying to pass to OCS with passthrough I was unable to get in the middle of that process and use my normal user account to authenticate for the agent install. My elevated admin account for the servers does not have access to email, so I wasn’t able to just add the account as a user in OCS. That caused me to…

    Thank you for the feedback. We are researching how best to achieve the goal of specifying a client id and secret manually during install rather than forcing the user to login to OCS to retrieve the client id and secret.

    Please let me know if you have questions, or additional information you wish to share.

    Warm regards,

  20. Disable the Hover Cursor

    I personally find the ever-present cursor really annoying. For example, sometimes I’m moving my mouse to scroll to a later point in time. Or I can imagine myself using my mouse to point something out to a colleague. In both instances, the cursor is not relevant and its presence is distracting (like a gnat!).
