  1. Segment access to PI Client software downloads

    It would be helpful to provide users access to download PI Client software without also giving them access to download PI Server software.

    We would like to hear from you about the use cases for this request.

    Currently, only a “Super User” or an “Admin” can generate a PI Server License file. “Download User” cannot.

    “Download User” can download all software and files (including the PI Server exe), but with no ability to generate the required PI Server License file (see this KB Article for details on portal profile permissions: https://customers.osisoft.com/s/knowledgearticle?knowledgeArticleUrl=What-is-a-Customer-Portal-user-profile) .

    Without the ability to generate a PI Server license file, the Download User cannot install a new instance of the PI Server. Does that satisfy the request?

  2. Allow Site Name to be searchable on the Products page

    For customers who have many sites, it is cumbersome to find the site they want on the Products Page. It would be nice if the "Select Site Name" dropdown list itself were searchable for any text in a site name and/or if, when "All Sites" is selected, the Product search bar could be used to return results based on the value in the "Site Name" field.

  3. Provide more information in Customer quotes for services and related expenses

    The quotes provided for T&L related to onsite services are too generic. It is difficult to tell the difference among a set of quotes which leads to confusion when matching POs against them. It would also be helpful to have more information on the quote to justify the PO.

  4. Correct the escaping of characters in migrated cases

    In migrated cases, what was originally \ and " now appear as \\ and \", respectively. Please restore the escaped characters to how they originally appeared.

  5. Add a space between the first name and last name in the description of migrated cases

    In migrated cases, the description appears as:
    Note: This case has been opened by the following person - KennethBarber

    There should be a space between the first name and the last name.

  6. Drop support for TLS 1.1 and weak cipher suites on customers.osisoft.com

    This change will improve the security of the website and will improve the Protocol Support score of the website on the SSL Server Test.

  7. Easy access to quotes.

    I have to submit POs before I can download the quote shown in the window. Can this be more intuitive?

  8. Quickly add fellow admins for many, many sites

    I administrate many sites. I need a way to quickly add a fellow admin that matches my own view and access.

  9. NOC Routing

    Previously, NOC alerts were handled by whoever was on a NOC shift. With the new customer portal, NOC alerts are assigned to an engineer and the engineer takes ownership of the NOC alert. Customer stated if he responds to an alert when the engineer is not on shift, the customer will not get a response until the engineer is back on shift. Customer would like to have the alert handled by whatever engineer is available / on shift right when he responds to an alert.

  10. Eliminate the need to scroll on the sign-in page

    On laptops, the contents of the sign-in page do not fit on the screen, so the user must scroll to see all of it. Please redesign the page so that the content fits on the screen. Shrink or eliminate the picture of the bridge, or send it into the background (e.g. https://login.live.com/).

  11. Filing an EA Tech Support case for a specific site

    Since EA software licenses are managed on the EA virtual site, they are losing the ability to track cases filed against products as well as a site or sites. They would like to be able to track these items against both, as well as filter against both.

  12. Attach my site's architecture diagram

    I'd like to be able to attach my site's architecture diagram via the customer portal. This would allow me to avoid having to re-explain my architecture every time I call into Tech Support and speak with a new support engineer.

  13. Order the version numbers

    When you go to create a new case online, you must choose the version number of the program. Please make sure that the versions are always in order. For example, for PI DataLink, the version numbers are listed in descending order, which is fine, but then 2019 was sloppily appended at the bottom of the list, even though it should be at the top.

  14. Make the pop-up screen for uploading the MSF file for license generation larger or include a scroll down button

    When generating a PI license file on the customer portal, a pop-up screen is presented for uploading the MSF file. When the pop-up screen opens it cuts off before you see where to upload the MSF file. Include a scroll function on the side bar so customers can expand the pop-up screen and see where to upload the MSF file or make the pop screen larger.

  15. Please don't show me older expired product licenses

    It's confusing - I have old expired licenses that I'm requesting download access, and unknown to me, there is another site has the current license that I'm looking for. Rather than just emailing the account team of my download request, just direct me to where the license is current among the sites that I have download rights to.

  16. Streamline changing of roles

    As an admin changing the role for a user requires you to enter into each user and updating the role. Unfortunately phone number and/or other fields such as working times, timezone, etc. typically aren't set and these are required. This means that to simply change permissions the Admin must now enter in all of these fields which is an arduous task, especially if you need to do it for a team of people.

    Rather, when clicking Configure for the user the role is shown in a dropdown that's currently disabled. Being able to update the role here would streamline the…

  17. Add SSO username to profile

    Add a section to the customer profile with their SSO username so they know how to log onto FTP.

  18. Remove product family from product search criteria

    The Search in the ‘Product’ Section of the Portal allows customers to search a number of fields including anything in the ‘Custom Name’ field. Thus they can name their servers meaningful names (to them) and be able to find them easily.

    This is a great capability BUT we feel that we have identified a problem.

    One of the fields that seems to get searched is ‘Product Family’. This creates the issue.

    It would seem reasonable, in fact a good idea, for a customer to call a server something like ‘Project X Development Server’. But we use ‘Development’ as a Product…

  19. Add hyperlink to "case link" on emails on TS cases.

    When a customer gets an email related to a support case, there is a case link in the email, however that case link is not a hyperlink and the customer needs to copy and paste it into a browser. It would be nice if this was a hyperlink to direct the customer to the case page of the customer portal.

  20. Customer Portal Feedback

    I am using the products page on the Customer Portal and I believe that some changes should be made, regarding the display of release dates and version numbers directly from the download UI, as I feel that this is a necessary column to include, and I don't understand why it's not shown immediately. I believe that better sorting of product downloads by chronological release when displaying "All Versions" would be an important enhancement. I notice that some products have their full version numbers listed, while others have their - more common - version year listed. I believe that this should…
