  1. Support security baselining

    As a PI administrator, I need to baseline the security configuration of my PI System to ensure OSIsoft security best practices are followed.

    Below is a list of requested features.

    Baseline verification (read-only) for PI Data Archive:
    - PI Data Archive Table Security - examines the database security of the PI Data Archive and flag any ACLs that contain access for PIWorld as weak.
    - PIADMIN role - verify that the piadmin PI user is not used in any mappings or trusts.
    - PI Data Archive Version - verify that the PI Data Archive is using the most recent release. …

  2. Make the test reports actionable

    Once the test runs and the report is generated, it is not easy to interpret potential failures that are included in the report and the only option is to contact techsupport. It is useful to make the report more actionable to know how to go about troubleshooting potential failures without the need to reach out to Techsupport.

  3. Create Deployment Samples for Google Cloud Platform

    As a customer utilizing GCP, it would be helpful to have a deployment sample created specifically for GCP. This would enable me to quickly spin up an entire development PI System on GCP within a few hours.

  5. Support Claims Based Authentication in Vision

    PI System Deployment Tests will not pass pre-checks in our system because we have configured PI Vision to use claims-based authentication. SDT should support this message as claims is an IT standard.

  6. Allow support for load balanced AF servers

    In our environment we have an archive Collective and 2 AF servers coordinated by a network load balancer. The Tests should support a system with load balanced AF servers.

    It appears, that even if you set the value AFServer in app.config to one of the 2 AF servers, the pre-checks will still fail if the local instance of System Explorer is connected to AF using the load balancer as the host. I get errors such as these (PIAF is the name of the load balancer).

  8. Use filename from download

    In the scripts the file used for the installation of PI Server contains spaces.
    Why not using the original name we have from the download-site?

  9. Add documentation for remote connection on Azure

    In the README there is no documentation about the configuration to
    allow connection to the RDS from your own network. Add a section about this configuration so this is done before you start the deployment on Azure

  10. Split up installation and infrastructure of Deployment Samples

    We have installed the OSI PI System without problem with the scripts provided in these samples. But now it's only possible to run the full script with the installation/configuration of the infrastructure included. Is it maybe possible to split up the project in 2 parts? So it's possible to skip the infrastructure part because a lot of people are maintaining them by themselves with another tool. This will make it easy for people to spin up quickly a development setup that can integrate with tools like TrendMiner for example.

  11. Allow different host names and URLs for PI Web API

    Our PI Web API uses a DNS. The certificate we use is only valid for the DNS alias, not the machine host name. So in our system, we have the need to use the host name for some pre-checks, and the DNS URL for other pre-checks. Can you please separate these two things out in app.config?
