  • Getting Data into Spotfire® from OSIsoft PI, Asset Framework, and Event Frames

    Use this Spotfire Custom Data Source to pull data from your OSIsoft PI data source into Spotfire®.

    Important Announcements

    One of the most frequently asked Spotfire® questions, particularly from Manufacturing and Oil and Gas customers, is "Can you connect to OSIsoft's PI System?".  There are many standard ways to do this using JDBC and ODBC drivers supplied by OSIsoft.  However, for the casual data discovery user, these require some extra configuration steps that can be challenging.

    In order to make it easier, we developed some Spotfire Custom Data Sources that allow the following:

    • Reading of PI Tag data and metadata
    • Reading of Asset Framework (AF) data and metadata
    • Reading of Event Frame data


    These data sources are shared with the Spotfire Community for free use by customers and partners under the  Spotfire Component Exchange License.  If you have suggestions for enhancements or run into issues, please post questions on Spotfire Community.
