  1. 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).

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. "+ 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".

  10. Group Stream Properties Together in Search Pane

    Within the trend search pane, group properties of a stream under the stream as opposed to a flat list and for PI to OCS streams, and make it easy to get the Value and not StatusCode (which is unlikely to be trended).

    Ex:
    <StreamName>|Value
    <StreamName>|SystemStateCode

  11. 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

  12. Create Custom-Defined Patterns for Parsing Context from Stream Names

    Ability to create user-defined patterns that can be parsed from the stream name to add context. Currently the service uses delimiters to aid in the construction of a pattern. For example, a stream name with B1234 can be deconstructed into equipment: Boiler and equipment ID: 1234

  13. Include Calculated Data in OCS Data Views

    As a data scientist, I often want to include calculated features in addition to the stream property data. Examples include min, max, average, etc. calculated at the same frequency as the interpolated stream property values.

  20. Can we get PJM or MISO to put market pricing (LMP) data and Day Ahead data the they offer in APIs in OCS?

    Instead of having to setup an API on a server in our SCADA environment, get the data offered in OCS from PJM or MISO and then get it into our PI System for analytics and analysis.
