Azure Time Series Insights

Azure Time Series Insights is an end-to-end Platform-As-A-Service offering to ingest, process, store, and query highly contextualized, time-series-optimized IoT-scale data that’s ideal for ad-hoc data exploration, as well as operational analysis. Azure TSI is a uniquely extensible and customized service offering that meets the broad needs of industrial IoT deployments.

More details about the service are available Time Series Insights documentation.

  1. Add abillity to remove events within a given time period or with given time series Id

    There are no good ways to remove data from TSI, especially during development its a pain to recreate TSI's because you can't go back and change data and if you rerun the datasets you get duplicate datapoints, at the very least an update feature should be present that is based on the event time.

  3. Increase the limit of events that can be downloaded by TSI

    Downloading events from TSI is currently limited to 10000 events. This is probably because the query API is limited to 10000 events per query. Please consider increasing this limit.

  5. API for embedding Time Series Insights Analyze page

    I would like to be able to embed the Analyze page into an existing website, passing parameters such as list of devices, environments, starting time period. Also options to turn on/off page widgets (like Save Query).

  6. Being deployable instances of Time Series Insights to Japan region

    There are some Japanese customers interested in TSI. In order to take it into their models, I would like to describe a story or a path that is going to be available in Japan after the end of preview period.

  7. Grouping needed in preview version

    In the GA version grouping is supported using the "split by" feature, or actually by not using it. Doing aggregates using grouping is my major use case and I guess that others need it too.

    The preview version has a more appealing price model, and I would prefer to work the preview version than sticking to a "doomed" version since we are in early stages of the project.

    Suggestion: Add a way to do grouping in preview version

  8. Better Documentation needed

    As of now current documentation looks quite isolated. It would be better to have a doc starting from posting json

    {

        "deviceId": "FYYY",
    
    "timestamp": "2018-01-17T01:18:00Z",
    "series": [
    {
    "tagId": "pumpRate",
    "value": 0.58015072345733643
    },
    {
    "tagId": "oilPressure",
    "value": 22.2
    }
    ]
    }

    to how to model this json for better visualization. to a new comer modeling and hierarchy concepts are kind of still isolated. It might just be the missing piece.

  10. Add lookup table and static values

    I use the Time Series Insights Preview and I like it that we can create own parameters. For some formulares I need to get a value out of a lookup table and some static values (but the static values can change from time to time...).

    For example the formulare needs a value which depends on the temperature. I would look into the lookup-table with my temperature, get another value which than inputs the formulare.

    Something like that

    LookUp-Table-Definition:

    x y (x is input, y is output)
    10 15
    11 17
    12 20.5
    13 25

    The formulare is something like

    (tempLookUp($event.[relTemperature].Double)…

  11. Timestamp documentation

    The timestamp is an important factor in the Azure Time Series Insights. But there is no proper documentation regarding the format, the best practices to send timestamp in UTC (or in any other format) from the IoT device. It will be extremely helpful if there is proper documentation for this scenario.

  12. Calculate values (booleans?) for formulas

    In the Time Series Model, I'd love to create a new variable in a Type that is a categorical value, but based on thresholds of a calculation or a variable. Now the categorical values are just translations of lists, but I would love to be able to create a new variable like this:

    Good: temperature < 23
    Warn: temperature > 23 and temperature < 24
    Alert: temperature > 24

    I don't see that possible in the time series model ?

  13. Increase maximum number of concurrent connections per environment

    Currently, only 20 concurrent connections are allowed which limits usage of the API heavily. Would be great if this was increased to a larger amount per environment.

  14. Create an Angular typescript package for TSI

    Create a TypeScript package for use with Angular to easily integrate TSI into Angular SPA applications rather than forcing developers to adapt the existing JavaScript SDK.

  15. Use instance fields for calculations

    Can we use the instance fields to calculate variables for a given type? And if so, how?
    So far I only see event data being used ($event.[value].double), but what if I need a static value?
    Something like $instance.[fieldname].Double would help but it doesn't seem to work like that...

  16. no 'raw' data can be viewed in PowerBI when using the TSI connector

    We used the accelerator to generate IOT data and then can view the data in TSI. However when we try to view the data view PowerBI , no 'raw' data can be viewed in PowerBI when using the TSI connector to PowerBI approach.

    Here is a link to the details on how I am trying to view TSI data in PowerBI:
