Where would I put my AF2.0 and Notification posts in this discussion hall? I not able to find a suitable forum.
Hey Tjidde, I would guess in the SDK Development section as it mentions AFSDK. Unless OSI take your hint and create an AF/Notification section.
Actually I'm hoping they will take the hint and create a forum. I think there is enough going on with AF2.0 and notifications to justify a dedicated forum
I not only have quetion related to the SDK programming, but also some issues/question/enhancement request for using the AF2.0 explorer. E.g. a question how I can handle occasional string in a Formula data reference or pointers in making a script to apply a template for notification using our own developed endpoint or a question when custom attribute values are made availbel for webservices. Where would I post these issues?
Likewise, I have questions about using AF and the AF Processbook addin. I have posted a question in the Processbook forum for want of a better place. This is nothing to do with developing with the AF SDK, just using AF.
Hi Alistair and others who requested this! :)
As I wrote in a previous post, we are really trying to focus on "for developers, by developers" and provide a great portal for "PI Programming & Integration" related questions and resources. Our regular technical support (email@example.com - +1-510-297-5828) should be the preferred channel for "PI Admin" and "End Users" type questions. When in doubt, please don't hesitate and post it here: we'll help you the best we can and redirect posts to TechSupport when appropriate - we understand there sometimes is a fine line between the 2 categories of question...
On another hand, we also understand there is a desire for our customer and partner ecosystem, to have discussion forums for plain PI Administration and End-User type discussions. Please rest assure we communicate that to the TechSupport Management and we'll see :)
That said, there's another topic buried in this discussion thread: whether or not to segregate the "OSIsoft SDKs Development" Forum into smaller, more specific forums... I'd like to hear a little more on this from the community. Please see my previous post in this discussion thread.
And here's something we'd like to suggest - your feeback is more than welcome:
Generic Forums - vCampus Discussions (non-programming) - PI System Integration and Administration (non-programming) - General .NET Development Discussions
Development with OSIsoft SDKs - General - PI SDK - AF SDK - Notifications SDK (AN SDK)
Development other OSIsoft products - PI OLEDB Development - PI OPC Development - PI ACE Development
Add-In/Microsoft Development - ProcessBook and Microsoft Office Development - SharePoint Development & Integration

Steve, gets my vote.
I vote for that one too!
But I would add a "things that didn't fit anywhere else" forum, just for the sake of it. :D
So the vCampus team has voted - last call for the rest of the community before we'll make the change
I think we need some polls in here, maybe.
Done! As some of you requested, we re-organized the discussion forums! It look a little longer than expected as we had to take care of a few displaying concerns, but there you are!
Remember this is your community - make sure you provide feedback on what you like and dislike, and things you'd like to see change. You can even make use of polls when you initiate a new discussion thread (a 'Poll' tab appears when you write a new post).
Steve...can you create nested forums?So you retain "OSISoft SDKs Development" but in there you then have each SDK separated.
OSISoft SDKs Development |-> General |-> ....all posts |-> PI SDK |-> ....all posts |-> AF SDK (Analysis Framework, AFExplorer, System Explorer) |-> ....all posts |-> AN SDK (Notifications) |-> ....all posts |-> EF SDK (Event Frames) |-> ....all postsThat way your top level forum is not too crowded. Once a user homes in on a specific technology area (SDKs in this case) you can post in general or get specific with each SDK and associated product.
