  1. 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.

  3. Partners can create their own displays from shared data

    As a company that shares data with our partners, my partners would like the ability to create their own displays from data we share with them SO THAT they can build what they need in a self-service model (and we don't have to build everything for them).

  7. Indicate that OMF was accepted

    As a OMF developer, I would like a way to easily check if my OMF message succeeded and the message was processed and there were no errors. I would like to do this from my sending application. One possible way would be to send in the returned operation-id of a call to get its status(using same auth header).

  8. Let me copy the URL for the "get data" Data Views API call directly from the Data Views configuration page

    As a Data Scientist, I want there to be an "easy copy" button so that I can quickly and easily copy the API URL that can be used to query for the Data View's interpolated data, with the parameters set in the configuration page.

    This will facilitate ease-of-use for citizen Data Scientsts who will be leveraging this API call in other tools, as well as save time for both expert and citizen Data Scientists, by generating the API URL with required fields such as AccountID, Namespace, DataViewID, startIndex, endIndex, interval, etc.

  9. Enable conditional substitution between fields in a Data View

    As a Data Scientist exploring or analyzing my dataset, I want to have the ability to configure a Data View to conditionally substitute the value from one field into another field (for instance if a field has a null value at one interval, fill that interval with the value from a different field)

    An example of a common use case would be regarding PI tags sent to OCS via the PI to OCS Agent. Consider a scenario where a numeric PI tag (eg. of type Float) had a period where it stored system Digital State values (eg. Bad Input) instead…

  10. Ability to support nested attributes in OCS Visualization

    Whilst OCS' SDS supports storing structures that include nested attributes, OCS Trending currently doesn't support that functionality.

    The workaround is to flatten the nested structure to a simple type, and get the OCS Trending to work.

  14. 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.

  15. The Cursor Table's Icon Can Be Confusing

    In the lower pane of the workspace, the icon that is associated with the table doesn’t seem to “fit.” It has such a strong association with Google maps or a physical location. I think it might be better to use another icon. This is also where having tooltips would help.

  16. Y-Axis Modes Aren't Self-Explanatory

    There are three views of the traces. The “stacked” view where each trace is separately displayed is clear. But it isn’t obvious to me what the difference is between the other two views.

  17. Allow RedirectURL to be free form. (currently restricted to only http schemed ones).

    I'm building a mobile app to authenticate to OCS. Using OIDC Authentication, my app is expecting a Redirect URL of “host.exp.exponent”... but OCS won’t let me whitelist this Redirect URL, it tells me: “URL is invalid”.

    The issue is that OCS appears to artificially restrict redirect URLs to only http schemed ones.

    However, native app redirects are free form and not necessarily schemed. Lifting that restriction should solve the issue.

  19. OMF endpoint URL not easy to find.

    I think the OMF endpoint should be easier to find. I struggled with this for over half an hour trying to find the URL for my OMF endpoint.

    Also, I might be wrong on this, but shouldn't the URL include the https:// as a prefix?

    I used the OMF endpoint from OCS by using the "copy to clipboard" button, and pasted in my json configuration file for OSIsoft's Edge Data Store (EDS). The Result: I received an "error: Invalid Endpoint". The solution was to add the https:// in front of the url that I copy from OCS.

  20. "+ Add Connection" Button Functionality.

    I think the "Add Connection" button should prompt the user if they want to create a "OMF Type" or a "PI System" type connection.

    This was confusing for me, since I didn't realize that the "Add Connection" button functionality is DIFFERENT based on weather I have the TYPE set to "OMF" vs "PI SYSTEM".
