    OSIsoft Cloud Services has expanded to support data residency in EMEA. In addition to the previously supported West US region, you are now able to store data in the West Europe region. You can choose to utilize one or multiple regions within your OCS account.

    Data ingress via OSIsoft Message Format and PI to OCS Connections also supports sending data to either region in OCS.

  3. Trend OCS Stream Properties

    Ability to search for OSIsoft Cloud Services (OCS) Streams by name and trend Stream Properties.

    Ability to perform basic trend interactions such as: setting the time range, configure y-axis mode, highlight traces, hide/show traces, multiple cursors, horizontal panning & zooming.

  4. PI to OCS - More configuration options when selecting PI tags to transfer

    Allow users more flexibility and options when finding and selecting PI tags to transfer to OCS. Current implementation only allows a single PI tag name search criteria, and limits one transfer between each PI Data Archive and OCS namespace.

    PI to OCS now supports a more flexible user experience when selecting PI Points for transfer. You can now search for PI Points by specifying several additional attributes such as Descriptor, Engineering Units, Point Type, Extended Descriptor, and Location Codes 1-5. Additionally, you can now build a list of PI Points by doing multiple searches, to accommodate PI Points that may not conform to a naming convention.

    This functionality was released in version 1.4.84.0 on August 12, 2020. Please log into OCS and download and install this latest version of PI to OCS to enable these features.

    OSIsoft Cloud Services (OCS) visual trending supports URL parameters for data items, time range, and Y-axis mode. You can copy your trend session URL and sent to your colleagues, so it’s quick and easy to get on the same page about what’s happening.

    This functionality can also be used to bookmark trends you frequently use within your web browser.

    Please check it out and let us know what you think.​

  7. Enable Partners to Build / Develop Connectors that write to Cloud Services

    As an OSIsoft Partner and Systems Integrator, I want to have a way to build connectors (interfaces) that can write data to Cloud Services for customers that have custom equipment SO THAT we can have more opportunities in the market.

    Leverage OSIsoft Message Format (OMF).

    OSIsoft Cloud Services (OCS) supports claims and Identity Providers. Our first release was mid-2019. More specifically, we are using the Open ID Connect implementation of OAuth 2.0.

    We support the following Identity Providers in OCS: Azure Active Directory, Microsoft Accounts, and Google.

  9. 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.

  11. PI to OCS browser dependency in PI to OCS Agent install

    There seems to be a dependency on IE, when installing the PI to OCS agent. This wasn't there in earlier versions. I kept getting Flash error during DUO authentication. I had FF and Chrome installed, and Flash was disabled. I ended up having to install IE, then disable Flash in IE, before I could get past the DUO error

    PI to OCS now uses the System Browser during installation. The install kit will now use the default system browser instead of the older embedded browser for user authentication to avoid known embedded browser issues.

    This functionality was released in version 1.4.84.0 on August 12, 2020. Please log into OCS and download and install this latest version of PI to OCS to enable these features.

  13. Access or Share from PI Tags

    I need to be able to access or share PI tags with my industrial operating customers/external partners when these tags aren't incorporated into an AF structure.

    PI Cloud Connect today requires an AF structure to transfer data.

  14. Programmatic access to large tabular data sets

    Ability to define and query a shaped and formatted tabular time-series data set as a data view for use in data science and advanced analytics applications. .

    OCS stream data is interpolated at a given interval. Any time period can be queried and retrieved, and the data can be re-shaped to fit requirements of downstream applications.

  15. Stacked Trend

    Besides the single-scale and multi-scale trend modes, I also want to stack the trends on top of one another so that traces don't overlap, and each trace has its own Y-axis scale.

  16. Hide / Show Traces

    As an end-user of the Trend app, when visualizing multiple variables in a trend, sometimes I want to hide a few of them so I can focus on the rest. Once done, I want to add the hidden traces back to the trend so I can see the whole picture.

  19. Automated Creation of Stream Metadata from Stream Names with Delimiters

    Ability to parse meaningful metadata from stream names to add context. Utilize the delimiters in a stream name to define a pattern for parsing metadata.
    Stream metadata enriches the sequential data, and is valuable to OCS users for data organization, easier finding of desired data, and richer analysis.
