Control which PI/AF servers each data source sends data to.

Right now, for one instance of the connector, all configured data sources will send data to all configured PI Data Archives and PI AF Servers. It is all or nothing. Due to the fact that you cannot have multiple instances of the same connector on a...

Ability for PI Connectors to create future data point

Add the ability for PI Connectors to create future data point. This is especially useful for the PI Connector for UFL. The current workaround is to manually create the point as a StoredValues=FutureData.

PI Connector Relay support write modes

While writing data to PI through the connector relay there seems to be no option to control the write mode . E.g."[-109] Value at This Time Already Exists" is shown in the logs if the archive already contains an event with the same timestamp. The ...

Option to remove/edit template prefix

Allow for connectors to create templates without the fixed prefix. E.g. The option to name an AF template "templatename" and not "UFL.templatename"

Have option to enable exception on Connectors.

There are use cases where data is sent over networks with latency (satellite link, for example) so being able to filter out noise at the connector is important.  This is also important when a connector sends data to a local PI Server in the field ...

Enable Relay/DCM to allow control over the data streams and destination PI Systems

Currently the Relay will send all data streams to all routed destination. This does not allow customers to have control over what data streams go to a specific destination. The only workaround is to have independent Connector/Relay pairs with spec...

PI Connectors buffering (Tau) - provide configuration options

As a PI Administrator, I would like to be able to DISABLE or configure Tau buffering SO THAT after a network outage the flood of data doesnt overload my network switch and PI DA. My current use case doesn't require the data that may be lost during...

Allow the AF root element name to be configurable

The root element in AF is determined by the Connector code.  Allow the name of the root element to be specified by the user.

Put a REST endpoint on all connectors

It would be very useful to see the data flowing through a connector at the edge, or even the data buffered in a connector. Every connector could have a rest endpoint with the same methods as PI Web API. Possible uses: -Diagnose connection/configu...

Increase the default log size

The current default log size in the event viewer is 1MB. Although it can easily be increased, a larger default (100MB+) would allow to catch errors the first time they occur and allow for further troubleshooting then having to change it and have t...
