Release Notes for system:inmation 1.74
- Audit Trail Display
Improvements have been made to the Audit Trail Display, fixing issues with empty timestamp fields and the export function. JSON viewer option has also been added to context menu for audit entries. Filter time added to toolbar and Query and Returned time fields added to the display footer.
- History Grid and History Trend Display
Fixed regression, introduced in 1.74.9, where history displays would show history of referenced item when referencing object is added to a display.
- OPC A&E Server improvements
Issue fixed with OPC Classic events not being delivered to the Server component after restart of the Core.
- History Sink
Issue fixed with cursor error message when using the History Sink to sink data to AspenTech IP21 systems.
- DataStudio Improvements
Improved handling of workspace changes when DataStudio disconnects from Core. Also, improved field layout and sorting behaviour in the Event View Display and resolved issue when restoring HistoryTrend Display from saved config file.
- Generic Time Series Buffer
Optimizations have been made to the performance of data transport to the Generic Time Series Buffer.
- BPR MongoDB operations
Issue fixed where in certain circumstances, the lifetime management of Mongo client when performing BPR MongoDB operations could cause problems.
- Web API Improvements
- WebStudio Improvements
Multiple improvements to WebStudio including: Diff Editor improvements, scroll bar on Report Viewer Widget, Filters, column width configuration and support for hierarchical structures on Table Widget, added cursor support and root path configuration for KPI Model in Chart Widget. Other small bug fixes and improved error reporting.
- OPC UA A+C Support
The support for OPC UA A+C has been increased with a brand new storage schema specific to UA alarms accompanied by changes to the Lua API geteventhistory function and changes to the Event View display.
- OPC UA Source Timestamp Support
It is now possible to select whether to use source or server timestamps on OPC UA Servers connected to the system with the OpcUaUseSourceTimestamp Property of the OPC UA Datasource object.
- Redundant Stream
An issue with the Redundant Stream object has been fixed that caused it to not work correctly with script events.
- WebStudio Table and EventTable Widgets
Improvements have been made to WebStudio including default column sorting in the Table widget and improved widget refresh functionality. An issue with filtering via timestamps in the EventTable widget has been fixed in this release.
- Production Tracking and Audit Trail Data Store Queries
Retrieval of Audit Trail Data Store records is only supported in MongoDB versions 3.6 and above.
- Pass Through Queries
Data that resides in external Datasources (for example OPC servers, OSI PI systems, SQL servers) can be queried using the Web API without any requirement for data storage within the system. These queries will be passed through the system components allowing for on demand querying of Datasources connected to remote Connectors.
- History Transfer - Generic Time Series Buffer
The new Generic Time Series Buffer extends the Store and Forward sub-system to aid the efficiency of transporting data to the cloud using the history transfer chain. The Generic Time Series Buffer allows data transfer from remote Connectors to cloud locations without needing to write data to MongoDB.
- Read-Only Datasources
- MSI Interface
The MSI interface offers the possibility, to process incoming data with a user-defined script. Likewise, outgoing data can also be generated using a user-defined script. This mapping option is called Custom Script.
Store and Forward of data from outdated components
Connectors and local cores that are not up-to-date (i.e., not version 1.74) will be unable to forward historical data or events. This affects only the systems where said components are configured for the manual-permissive software update mode. Until the connector (local core) is updated, the data will be stored locally at the outdated component (within the configured storage limits); then the previously stored data will be forwarded normally.
- Honeywell PHD integration
- PLC Datasources
Performance of read operations on S7 PLCs has been significantly improved.
- Batch Tracker
The API to retrieve stored batches from the database has been improved. It is now possible to use MongoDB commands like $elemMatch and to return only BPR-IDs instead of complete records.
- DataStudio Unresolved Objects Dialog
The dialog has been improved giving the user a better overview of displays with unresolved objects as well as more control over resolving them.
- PI Bridge
PI Bridge now targets .NET 4.6.2 (previously .NET 4.5.2) and uses the latest SDKs of both PI (18.104.22.1688) and AF (22.214.171.1243).
Compatibility of 1.74 with Visual KPI 126.96.36.1992
For system:inmation v1.74, it is recommended to use version 188.8.131.522 of Visual KPI.
system inmation v1.74 remains compatible with older versions of Visual KPI from 184.108.40.2064 onwards. However, due to known issues, Visual KPI 5.57 should not be used.
