  1. If you have many different OSIsoft AF databases connected to Seeq, you will see all those Asset Trees show up in your Data Tab. As you can imagine, some customers have 50+ AF databases connecting to Seeq, which could lead to 50+ Asset Trees, making navigation to the desired tree difficult. Prior to R52, there was no alternative but to live with a messy Data Tab. Now, starting with R52, you can add a Property Transform to your OSIsoft AF Connector.json config file to rename the root Asset Tree name of each data source with multiple databases. Example: I have 2 PI AF data sources connected to Seeq, and each data source has 2 data bases with identical naming - see OSIsoft AF Connector.json original configuration file below. { "Version": "Seeq.Link.Connector.AF.Config.AFConnectorConfigV3", "Connections": [ { "Name": "piAFserverONE", "Id": "570974a9-d38f-4445-ad0d-3aac24fa88da", "Enabled": true, "Indexing": { "Frequency": "1w", "OnStartupAndConfigChange": false, "Next": "2021-07-05T01:00:00-05[America/Chicago]" }, "Transforms": null, "MaxConcurrentRequests": null, "MaxResultsPerRequest": null, "IncrementalIndexingFrequency": "300d", "AFServerID": "46abe034-1602-484f-b142-d8a667356e9f", "Username": '***', "Password": '***', "IncrementalIndexingMaxChangedPerDatabase": 10000, "IgnoreHiddenAttributes": true, "IgnoreExcludedAttributes": true, "NestChildAttributes": false, "SyncElementReferences": false, "RegisterSeeqDataReference": null, "AFServerName": "PIAFONE", "Databases": [ { "Name": "Database One", "ID": "af79d0c8-4afb-43ed-a7b2-115844f1ad29", "Enabled": true }, { "Name": "Database Two", "ID": "dee1a62d-9eac-4945-82e1-4a1e9baa9d8e", "Enabled": true } ], "AdditionalProperties": null, "PISecuritySynchronization": { "PointSecurity": false, "PIWorldMapping": null }, "AFSecuritySynchronization": { "IdentityMappingsDatasourceClass": "Windows Auth", "IdentityMappingsStopRegex": "^(BUILTIN\\\\.*)$", "Identities": false, "ElementsSecurity": false, "IdentityMappingsDatasourceId": null, "WorldMapping": null } }, { "Name": "piAFserverTWO", "Id": "68a9bccc-a421-4e0e-b06d-0586867decca", "Enabled": true, "Indexing": { "Frequency": "1w", "OnStartupAndConfigChange": false, "Next": "2021-07-05T03:00:00-05[America/Chicago]" }, "Transforms": null, "MaxConcurrentRequests": null, "MaxResultsPerRequest": null, "IncrementalIndexingFrequency": "300d", "AFServerID": "57abc41f-8822-4d0d-a668-8607db1c1445", "Username": '***', "Password": '***', "IncrementalIndexingMaxChangedPerDatabase": 10000, "IgnoreHiddenAttributes": true, "IgnoreExcludedAttributes": true, "NestChildAttributes": false, "SyncElementReferences": false, "RegisterSeeqDataReference": null, "AFServerName": "PIAFTWO", "Databases": [ { "Name": "Database One", "ID": "dee1a62d-9eac-4945-82e1-4a1e9baa9d8e", "Enabled": true }, { "Name": "Database Two", "ID": "8e05153b-a249-4165-a6cf-fa3e13fd6f4c", "Enabled": true } ], "AdditionalProperties": null, "PISecuritySynchronization": { "PointSecurity": false, "PIWorldMapping": null }, "AFSecuritySynchronization": { "IdentityMappingsDatasourceClass": "Windows Auth", "IdentityMappingsStopRegex": "^(BUILTIN\\\\.*)$", "Identities": false, "ElementsSecurity": false, "IdentityMappingsDatasourceId": null, "WorldMapping": null } } ], "ApplicationIdentity": null, "RestartAgentAfterErrorTimeout": null } In Seeq, my Data Tab would look like this: This is confusing, because I have no way to distinguish which data source each Database One is coming from, without diving into the Item Properties to get more information. Ideally, I could visually identify which is which. Hence, thanks to R52, I will rename the Asset Trees I see here via a Property Transform in my connector config file. See updated config below, with Transform: { "Version": "Seeq.Link.Connector.AF.Config.AFConnectorConfigV3", "Connections": [ { "Name": "piAFserverONE", "Id": "570974a9-d38f-4445-ad0d-3aac24fa88da", "Enabled": true, "Indexing": { "Frequency": "1w", "OnStartupAndConfigChange": false, "Next": "2021-07-05T01:00:00-05[America/Chicago]" }, "Transforms": [ { "Inputs": [ { "Property": "AF Path", "Value": "\\\\\\\\[^\\\\]+\\\\(?<path>[^\\\\]+?)$" } ], "Outputs": [ { "Property": "Name", "Value": "ONE.${path}" } ], "Enabled": true, "Log": false } ], "MaxConcurrentRequests": null, "MaxResultsPerRequest": null, "IncrementalIndexingFrequency": "300d", "AFServerID": "46abe034-1602-484f-b142-d8a667356e9f", "Username": '***', "Password": '***', "IncrementalIndexingMaxChangedPerDatabase": 10000, "IgnoreHiddenAttributes": true, "IgnoreExcludedAttributes": true, "NestChildAttributes": false, "SyncElementReferences": false, "RegisterSeeqDataReference": null, "AFServerName": "PIAFONE", "Databases": [ { "Name": "Database One", "ID": "af79d0c8-4afb-43ed-a7b2-115844f1ad29", "Enabled": true }, { "Name": "Database Two", "ID": "dee1a62d-9eac-4945-82e1-4a1e9baa9d8e", "Enabled": true } ], "AdditionalProperties": null, "PISecuritySynchronization": { "PointSecurity": false, "PIWorldMapping": null }, "AFSecuritySynchronization": { "IdentityMappingsDatasourceClass": "Windows Auth", "IdentityMappingsStopRegex": "^(BUILTIN\\\\.*)$", "Identities": false, "ElementsSecurity": false, "IdentityMappingsDatasourceId": null, "WorldMapping": null } }, { "Name": "piAFserverTWO", "Id": "68a9bccc-a421-4e0e-b06d-0586867decca", "Enabled": true, "Indexing": { "Frequency": "1w", "OnStartupAndConfigChange": false, "Next": "2021-07-05T03:00:00-05[America/Chicago]" }, "Transforms": [ { "Inputs": [ { "Property": "AF Path", "Value": "\\\\\\\\[^\\\\]+\\\\(?<path>[^\\\\]+?)$" } ], "Outputs": [ { "Property": "Name", "Value": "TWO.${path}" } ], "Enabled": true, "Log": false } ], "MaxConcurrentRequests": null, "MaxResultsPerRequest": null, "IncrementalIndexingFrequency": "300d", "AFServerID": "57abc41f-8822-4d0d-a668-8607db1c1445", "Username": '***', "Password": '***', "IncrementalIndexingMaxChangedPerDatabase": 10000, "IgnoreHiddenAttributes": true, "IgnoreExcludedAttributes": true, "NestChildAttributes": false, "SyncElementReferences": false, "RegisterSeeqDataReference": null, "AFServerName": "PIAFTWO", "Databases": [ { "Name": "Database One", "ID": "dee1a62d-9eac-4945-82e1-4a1e9baa9d8e", "Enabled": true }, { "Name": "Database Two", "ID": "8e05153b-a249-4165-a6cf-fa3e13fd6f4c", "Enabled": true } ], "AdditionalProperties": null, "PISecuritySynchronization": { "PointSecurity": false, "PIWorldMapping": null }, "AFSecuritySynchronization": { "IdentityMappingsDatasourceClass": "Windows Auth", "IdentityMappingsStopRegex": "^(BUILTIN\\\\.*)$", "Identities": false, "ElementsSecurity": false, "IdentityMappingsDatasourceId": null, "WorldMapping": null } } ], "ApplicationIdentity": null, "RestartAgentAfterErrorTimeout": null } After a fresh re-index of my 2 data sources, I can now see my Asset Trees are renamed in Seeq's Data Tab, and can clearly distinguish which Database belongs to which data source. You can use this to add data source information as I have done above, or simply use another method to order them in a different way - they will always populate alphabetically.
