    The suggestion is spot-on. This affects even those people that do not work for a partner company (e.g. non-partner consultant).

    Hi Stephen,

    It has been a while since I've worked with analyses. I did some testing and I can't reproduce the issue in the suggestion. I would say "maybe it has already been fixed", but the "bump" comment from pete.long makes me think otherwise, unless pete.long is using an older version of either PI Server or PI System Explorer.

    The testing did jog my memory a bit. I think that by "attribute path change", I meant the attribute or any of its parents being renamed. The attribute path appears in the Output Attribute column.

    To answer your question, your impression of what I meant is correct, but I'm not sure what you mean by "move this output attribute".

    If you can reproduce the issue on the latest versions of PI Server and PI System Explorer at the time that the suggestion was posted but not on the current versions of PI Server and PI System Explorer, then it's safe to say that the issue has already been fixed. If you cannot reproduce the issue on either, then we haven't found the right conditions to reproduce the issue. If you can reproduce the issue on both, then the suggestion still applies.

    But before any testing, it might be worth checking the release notes or internal documentation on what has been fixed since the release of the latest versions at the time that I posted my suggestion.

    Yes, I'm talking about a variable in analytics.

    For the 1st discussion in https://learning.osisoft.com/pi-system-basics/480642#en-language, there are 2 spaces in "company already".

    There is also a mistake here: https://learning.osisoft.com/series/all-content/pi-system-basics

    "There is also a final quiz which you must pass to OBTAINED a certificate of completion."

    It has been a while since I posted this suggestion, and all of the courses that I mentioned are gone. Anything related to using PI ProcessBook seems to have been concentrated into Building Displays With PI ProcessBook. There are no more courses about PI WebParts or PI ACE.

    This suggestion is almost completed. There just needs to be some mention that customers should consider using PI Vision instead of PI ProcessBook. Also, if we want to be more thorough, please label playlists and videos about deprecated PI programs as such.

    I forgot one: about half of Visualizing PI System Data is focused on PI ProcessBook, so this course is half outdated.

    I also feel that this should be moved to the Installation category:

    I agree with the suggestion but not with the example list of programs.

    PI System Management Tools and PI System Explorer would be better off being remade as web apps.
    PI DataLink and PI Builder could go in the Office Store.
    PI ProcessBook is slowly dying in favour of PI Vision.
    PI OLEDB Provider and PI OLEDB Enterprise have been mostly superseded by PI SQL Client.

    That leaves PI SQL Client as basically the only modern PI client program, and the only PI program that would be appropriate for the Microsoft Store.

    This issue comes up all the time if you use a PI Collective. While I agree with the suggestion, I also know that PI SDK is on its way out, and OSIsoft will probably never get around to this.

    PI Trusts and the PI Module Database are already obsolete. We shouldn't even be using them, other than %OSI\Interfaces. Their replacements are PI Mappings and the PI Asset Framework, respectively.

    Documentation for methods PIPoint.UpdateValue(s) and PIServer UpdateValues will contain this note in 2017 R2.

    There's not much point in trying to improve the PI OPC DA Server, since OPC DA is on its way out. A PI OPC UA Server should cover PI AF with no problem:

    The PI Connector For UFL can be used to get data from websites. Also, that OASIS website needs an upgrade. It's definitely best to not be creating a PI Connector specific to it based on how it is now.

    I disagree with the suggestion. The world is supposed to be moving away from Internet Explorer. The fact that some IT environments are locked down to the point that only Internet Explorer can be used is counterproductive, since forcing users to use an outdated browser will only decrease security. The less stuff there is that works with Internet Explorer, the more incentive there is for these IT environments to consider newer browsers.

    We have a feature in the upcoming 1.2 release of the connector that will allow you to collect data from OPC UA tags that do not have current values but do have history. We would poll these every 60 seconds (default) to find new data.

    Was that part of this request in any way? Can you describe in more detail what you would like as a feature that prompted you to vote for this time?
