  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. Group Developers Club users into a single group

    In the software download area I see my various PI Servers but there is also a large list of PI Developers Club licenses. As with all the products associated with each PI Server, I would like to roll all Developers Club licenses into a single category which could be expanded should the need arise.

  11. Provide a way to show what has updated in a KB article

    I usually look at all KB updates in the site. But, I don't know what has been added or updated in the KB! Please try to write or show what is new in the KB.

  12. Allow users to browse >2 pages of cases to view older cases

    Currently, I can see only 2 pages of closed cases and I cannot see any of the cases that I started before 2017. I deleted the case emails long ago on the assumption that the communications would always still be available online, which they are not anymore.

  13. Change "CaseDetail" to "Case Detail" in the title of case pages

    When you click on a case, the title of the web page, as shown in the browser tab, is "CaseDetail". This should be "Case Detail".

  15. Make default site under "Products" tab the primary site configured for the User Account

    EA customers often have a large list of associated sites. For EA customers the primary site they use to view available software is the "EA Virtual Site" which houses all OSIsoft standard software for download in one central place.

    CSMs get tons of requests from customers who cannot find software because they don't know to look under the "EA Virtual Site".

    It would be helpful if we could assign the "EA Virtual Site" as the primary site at the User level within Salesforce....then have this be the default site that shows up when the customer clicks on the "Products" tab.…

  16. OSISoft Web site Improvements

    The new OSISoft website has improved but some old features are not migrated properly. The drop down for selecting a site is not sorted on site name and hence is very difficult to find the server. Am talking from our experience where we have hundreds of sites n the company. Search feature on partial site name does not work

    Site is not supported on all Browsers, being international company they should have tested and provided on all browsers not just Crome.

    The documentation of products should not be hidden under each sites. Its should be common so that it easy…

  17. Drop support for TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 on ftp.osisoft.com

    OSIsoft's FTP website is lagging behind somewhat in terms of security. This website should be especially secure, since both the customer (who uploads files) and OSIsoft (who receives files) are at risk. Please drop support for TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1, and weak cipher suites for TLS 1.2.

    The security weaknesses are exposed by Qualys's SSL Server Test:

  18. Merge the login experiences of the FTP website and OSIsoft's other websites

    If you log into one of OSIsoft's websites, your login session will be good for most of OSIsoft's other websites. The FTP website (https://ftp.osisoft.com) is not one of them. A login session from the FTP website will not count towards other OSIsoft websites and vice versa. Also, during login, the FTP website accepts only the username of the OSIsoft account, while every other OSIsoft website accepts only the email address.

    Please give us the single sign-on experience on the FTP website and allow the both the email address and the username as options to specify the account to…

  19. Change the default text of links from "http://" to "https://"

    In existing cases, users have the option to add a link. By default, the link text is "http://". This should be changed to "https://", since the world is migrating more and more towards HTTPS, and it will help familiarize users with the idea that the secure version of links should be used whenever possible.
