Allow Definition of Point Attributes via OMF to PI Web API

When creating containers via OMF the PI Points are created with default Point Attributes - if these need to be changed it is a manual process to subsequently change the attributes appropriately. As OMF solutions can be easily deployed it would be useful to be able to define in the OMF type what the attribute values should be. Attributes of key interest are: Zero and Span Exception and Compression DisplayDigits Step This would allow of the data to be collected in the most efficient way without manual intervention.

    This would be very helpful to have. Right now it is a lot of work to apply all those settings. Doing it via PI Builder is very fast, however it does require very careful working in order to not accidentally write the wrong values or overwrite some settings already done. Doing it with a self-built application using the PI Web API or AF SDK would also work, but require a lot of additional work. It would also result in the settings being set in a variety of places. If we could set the Point attributes via OMF, then we could at the very least have the settings done all in one place and only simply slightly expand our OMF publisher.

    Compression is especially important since the default pi point configuration has compression enabled. This can lead to confusion as a user may miss that compression is configured and see a difference between what they are sending and what is written to the data archive.
