  1. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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,

  12. 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…

  13. Trend search results should highlight only returned results

    When I search for something in the the Trend search, the results that are highlighted should only highlight fields that were searched on. Highlighting other text returned, as it currently does implies the search found it that way.

    For example if I search on SystemStateCode. It returns 2 results, 1 for the value property and 1 for the systemstatecode property of the PI to OCS stream called SystemStateCode. The systemstatecode stream name and property name are both highlighted. I know I have more PI to OCS tags on this system and that these streams properties are not being returned in…

  14. Hovering over a hidden variable in an OCS trend should not gray out shown variables

    As an OCS end user, when I hover over a hidden variable in my OCS trend, I would like for shown variables in the OCS trend to not gray out, leaving no visible variables in the trend. Hidden variables should not affect the visualization of the OCS trend.

  18. Support meta data rules on streams that ignore some delimiters

    I would like to be able to generate meta data for my streams that have extra, unused delimiters in the name

    Yes, the selective use of delimiters will be supported by the Stream Metadata Rules. OSIoft recognizes that not all delimiters in a stream name or description are equally meaningful; they may be quite significant in one position and unimportant/ignored in another position (e.g. period used as delimiter and skipped within the same pattern).

    Development is currently working to complete this feature function.

  19. Disable PII (Personally Identifiable Information) from being shared in Communities

    If personally identifiable information (PII) is ever capable of being shared across tenants in a Community, have a Community configuration option to turn this off for a specific community SO THAT PII can explicitly be protected.

    NOTE that currently, PII information is not shared across tenants for members within a community. If that ever changes, there needs to be this option to disable.

  20. Save PI Point Transfer List to easily rebuild transfer query

    Having to redefine the Pi point transfer list manually every time is inconvenient. For example, it currently takes 5 different queries for me to build my list, and this last time I forgot one. It would be nice if somehow you could save and reference a previous list of pi points or the application remembers what has already been included in a past transfer. It's really common that you might only need to add a few streams to the existing pi point transfer list. If you could save a list of previous transfers then add the new query for new…
