Release Announcement
PI Integrator for Esri® ArcGIS® 2017 ( is released

OSIsoft is pleased to announce the release of PI Integrator for Esri ArcGIS 2017. This version of the integrator features time-enabled mapping allowing ArcGIS clients to access and display historical PI System data. Users are now able to view data stored at any time in the PI System in addition to the previously available streaming current data.

Other New Features

  • Augmented feature layers to join operational data from the PI System with geometry data stored in ArcGIS
  • Manageability of ArcGIS objects created by the Integrator            
  • Automatic detection of new AF elements for relevant layers

Architecture changes

The following changes have been introduced in PI Integrator for Esri ArcGIS 2017: 
  • Previous releases of the Integrator included two components, the Data Relay and the Application Server. These have been merged into a single executable. There is now one install kit for one server.
  • There is no longer a dependency on Microsoft IIS for the web server; instead, the application now runs as a self-hosted web service.
  • Performance counters are not included in PI Integrator for Esri ArcGIS 2017. If you are upgrading from an earlier version of PI Integrator for Esri ArcGIS, any performance counters that were associated with the earlier version will be removed when the Application Server and Data relay components are uninstalled.

Release Caveats

  • Upgrading from the 2015 release is supported, however upgrading from earlier versions (2014 SP1 and earlier) and upgrading from the CTP version is not supported. 
  • Silent installs are currently not supported.

Known Issues

  • Time-enabled feature layers are not supported with Portal for ArcGIS when configured to use IWA
