- Historical data licensing
To generate and retain historical data in the system repository, you require the Metasys Historical Data Add-On license. If unlicensed, the site user only has access to the most recent seven days' worth of historical data, plus any additional engine buffer data outside of those seven days. Any additional older data that exceeds the engine buffer limits becomes permanently unavailable. After purchasing this license, the OAS retains all data and is available to the site user indefinitely.
Trend data and other historical data are available in both Metasys UI and SMP.
- Metasys UI Feature Licensing
To enable the Potential Problem Areas widget and the Scheduled Reports feature, which includes the ability to save report templates, you require the Metasys Potential Problem Areas license, the Fault Detection license, the Fault Triage license, and the Metasys Scheduled Reports license. If unlicensed, these features are unavailable in the Metasys UI.
- Monitoring and Commanding API
To enable the Monitoring and Commanding API, you require the Monitoring and Commanding API license. If unlicensed, this feature is unavailable.
- SMP UI
SMP UI requires a license at Metasys Release 12.0.
