Custom Time Series Data Store Improvements

Changes have been made to the Custom Time Series Data Store feature to improve functionality and performance. An issue has been fixed with switching custom data store selections and the maximum retention time settings have also been increased.

1.62.1 - January 20, 2020

New in 1.62

Custom Time Series Data Stores

Users can now create Custom Time Series Data Stores to selectively archive data. Multiple Custom Time Series Data Store objects can be created below the Core and made available as an archive option for I/O item data and other time series data producing objects in the system.

Web Chart Web App

The Web Chart Web App functionality can be accessed in a browser or embedded in Visual KPI dashboards using the Advanced Trend KPI Model object. The responsive Web Chart display supports multiple x and y axes and contains extensive configuration options in the browser display.

History Refetch

The History Transfer Controller now supports Refetch of historical data. This function can be used to fill data gaps in the sink or to repeatedly fill in historical data for any purpose. The Refetch function can be activated for all or a selected subset of the tag streams managed by a particular History Transfer Controller object.

Active Directory Federation Service (AD FS) Web API Integration

The Web API now incorporates Microsoft’s Active Directory Federation Service (AD FS) as an authentication method.

Improved in 1.62

inExcel Add-In Communication

The communication between the inExcel Add-in and the Core has been upgraded to use the Web API. This improves performance and increased functionality with the range of available Web API endpoints.

v1.62 contains changes to the way the inExcel Add-in communicates with the system. The Web API is now used instead of the SCI so the inExcel Add-in must be reconfigured. Please visit here for details on how to change the necessary settings.

For system:inmation v1.62, it is recommended to use version 5.71.2.417 of Visual KPI.

system inmation v1.62 remains compatible with older versions of Visual KPI from 5.55.1.344 onwards. However, due to known issues, Visual KPI 5.57 should not be used.
