OData CTP Is Now Available

Blog Post created by dnoonen on Feb 11, 2014

In this blog post I summarize our new PI Web API and PI Cloud Access products. I also mention the fact that a Community Technical Preview (CTP) for the PI Web API's OData feature will be announced "soon".  With this post I'm announcing that availability! 


The PI Web API is a family of RESTful service products that enable resource-oriented access to PI System data.  A CTP of the PI Web API’s Core Service has been available for over 2 months now and I know that many of you have downloaded and developed against it.  We're now excited to provide a CTP of the OData feature.  The OData CTP can be accessed in the vCampus Download Center.  Navigate to the Pre-Release category and look for “PI OData Service CTP”.


In addition to the documentation that accompanies the OData CTP,  the sources noted below provide additional information:

  • We recently presented a vCampus Webinar on the PI Web API and PI Cloud Access products.  That Webinar contains information about our OData capability.
  • You can also reference the Extras in the Download Center and download the vCampus Live 2013 - Hands-on Labs.  The "Introduction To The PI OData Service" lab materials are a good reference source.

If you have feedback or questions on the PI Web API, don't hesitate to send me a message at dnoonen@osisoft.com.  You can also use the special mailbox we have setup for CTP feedback: CTPWebAPI@osisoft.com.
