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 firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also use the special mailbox we have setup for CTP feedback: CTPWebAPI@osisoft.com.
