  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  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,

  7. 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!).

  14. Store pre-computed averages to accelerate data scrubbing operations in a UI tool

    As a user that is looking to visually identify past behaviors in long sequence ranges, I would like to be able to scroll backward, forward, and zoom in quickly SO THAT I can isolate the appropriate behavior rapidly. Other back-end systems and UI tools support pre-computed totalizations (especially averages) to help users get a better trending / analytical experience. If I record 1Hz data, I probably don’t need to initially see every data point when they trend 6 months of data… so, having those always available would be nice (1M, 60M, 12h, 24h, 5d, 7d, 2wk, 4wk, 6mo, 1y).

  20. Deployment of OCS onto Amazon Web Services (AWS)

    Deployment of OSIsoft Cloud Services into Amazon Web Services (AWS) rather than Microsoft Azure.

    Note that the hosting platform for OCS shouldn’t matter since the interface to our services are available via public REST APIs.
