Do you love PI?
Have you ever thought about easing your tasks by improving PI feature or functionality? Do you have any observation or suggestion you would like to share which could help your fellow PI developers/administrators with their day to day job? Have you ever thought about some specific capability of the current PI systems which needs to be improved?
If you have “Yes” for any of the above questions, then I think it’s time when we collect all these observations, ideas and suggestions. I have created a wiki “Improving PI Features – Functionalities – Behavior” with a few points which I thought needs to be improved or which has to be taken care of by a PI developer/administrator. These are some basic observations and I know there would be lot more that these. Therefore I need your help to add all interesting observations, ideas and suggestions. If we get some strong opinion about certain points, I hope we could reach out to SAP in some way.
If you have suggestions, please edit the wiki page yourself or put a comment on this blog and I will add the content in wiki. Before adding any point, please make note of these points:
- The format in which you should add your observation is
PI System: XI x.x SP xx, PI 7.x EhPx SP xx
- I have divided the wiki into 5 components ESR (or IR), Integration Directory, Runtime, Monitoring, Others. Please add your content into appropriate section.
SWC Change History
PI System: PI 7.1 EhP1
Observation: When “Objects are original” and “Objects are modifiable” checkboxes are changed for any Software Component (SWC) in ESR (for any landscape), you can simply save it and there is no change list created. Also, no history is maintained in the “History” option of menu.
Improvement: SWCs are critical for ESR and there must be some way to check history of changes made on it.
It may happen that some of our observations turn up to be incorrect. But why not discuss it, that’s why we are here.
I can’t promise if these would be corrected in upcoming versions, but you never know! 😉 It would be anytime good to have them collected at one location and accessible to everyone.
