  1. Simplify access to objects using REST API

    Citizen data scientists, IT professionals and general OCS users need to use REST API methods in 3rd party applications - including Power BI - to access data or explore data using OCS Portal API Console.
    Typically objects not "custom created - where you can specify a human readable Id" and a GUID that requires the user to lookup the Id elsewhere or search through a list of objects is used.

  10. Cascading Security Inheritance Down to Streams and other Objects in a Namespace

    If a single namespace is being used to store data from multiple customers or sites, there needs to be a way to propagate security inheritance down to objects (streams, assets, etc.) within the namespace.

  12. 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.

  17. 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,

  18. 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.

  19. 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

    We have begun work to allow OCS data views to target assets, in addition to streams. We still want to hear more about how this can enable you to create more powerful analytics with your OCS data, so if this topic interests you, please vote, comment, or get in touch!
