  1. 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.

  2. Notify me when there is a problem with my PItoOCS agent or connection

    As a PI System Administrator managing our OCS implementation I need to be notified when there is an important change in my PI to OCS software or the connection to OCS that will require me to intervene. I need a notification to tell me about any problems that are occurring. I also need to be able to configure the type of message I get alerts on. I need an alert when data stops transferring, or something critical needs my attention.

    We have added a Health tile on the home page of OCS to surface the status of installed PI to OCS agents. However, we are interested in learning more about your use case and requirements for Notifications when there are problems with PI to OCS connections or agents.

  3. 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.

  6. Streaming API - for real time visualization

    As a OCS real-time-visualization-client I require a Streaming API so that I can avoid continuously polling the REST API.

    Similar to the WSS Chanels in PI WebAPI

    Or something like PI WebAPI Stream Updates could also work

  11. Equipment Benchmarking

    The ability to configure a peer group of similar equipment based on properties of the equipment SO THAT equipment KPIs can be benchmarked across multiple customers (and data shared anonymously).

    For example, a peer group might be all GE7FA gas turbines owned and operated by company xyz.

    The ability to see how my units are comparing across the entire group (including assets from other anonymous companies). What's my rank? Am I a good performer or a bad performer?

  12. 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.

    We need to do more customer research on what the expectations are when a Community is dissolved (perhaps the business relationship has gone another direction) … what happens to the old Community information? what stays around and is accessible vs not anymore?

  13. 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…

  17. Configure PI to OCS data transfer parameters

    As of this writing, the PI to OCS Agent sends data every 30 seconds or every 10,000 events and this is currently not configurable. The idea is to allow an administrator to configure these types of parameters so they could control how often data is sent from PI to OCS. This idea came from discussions where there are PI Tags that update infrequently and those are the only tags that are part of the PI to OCS transfer.

  18. OCS Trends Configuration Needs to be Saved in Cloud - Not The Browser!!!

    Currently, the trend configuration information is stored locally on the browser using cookies and does not persist between different computers. When local storage is refreshed or deleted, the trends then need to be reconfigured. Also, jumping between workstations, such as in a plant, makes this infuriating as the trends can be different. Basically, if you make a change to a trend, those changes don't synch to other workstations and have to be done manually for each. As this is a cloud platform this does not match the pattern of use or expectation that trends\displays would persist. This information should be…

  19. OCS APIs should allow requests with an Access Token issued by my Identity Provider

    A customer is building a Web application that needs to access both Microsoft APIs (secured using Azure Active Directory) and OCS APIs (secured using OCS Identity Server). In order for the customer to call both sets of APIs from their Web application, they currently need to authenticate the User with Azure Active Directory and perform a second authentication with OCS Identity Server.

    The Access Token issued by Azure Active Directory can be used to access Microsoft’s APIs and the Access Token issued by OCS Identity Server can be used to access OCS APIs, but not vice-versa. This means that the…

  20. Table Lookup in OCS Context / Assets
