Cognite Data Fusion - April 2021 updateMajor release
Cognite Data Fusion (CDF) is the industrial data operations and contextualization platform that makes traditionally siloed operational, engineering and IT data instantly available to users across the organization, enabling better decision making and intelligent workflow automation to improve operational performance.This release focuses on the end-to-end data journey with fast and secure authentication to all Cognite applications using your organization's IdP. We currently support Microsoft's Azure Active Directory (Azure AD).Also, speed up time spent getting value for operations using the new sample function for contextualization and add events to a Grafana dashboard to visualize and analyze your CDF data. Manage access with OpenID ConnectRegister the CDF portal application and other Cognite applications in your IdP (Identity Provider) and use OpenID Connect and your IdP framework to manage user and service principal (app) identities securely. We currently support Microsoft's Azure Act
At last, Cognite’s long awaited standard support for external identity providers is here! Over the last year or so, it has been referred to as "native token", "OIDC support", "support for Azure Active Directory", and "proper OAuth2". Alas, it can be hard to understand, so let me try to explain in "not-so-technical" terms what all this is about.So, what do our customers get with this release that they didn’t have before? We have supported external identity providers, like Google login before, right?The answer is simple: they now get total control over who can access what data in Cognite Data Fusion (CDF) and which applications the users can use, and which applications are allowed to access data. No more extractors or applications that can run as long as you have an API key. And no more mix of accounts created in Cognite Data Fusion and the identity provider like Azure Active Directory (AAD) or Google. Access control is now enterprise grade and according to how enterprises typically mana
You can now sign in to InField using single sign-on with Microsoft Azure To use this option, your organization needs to configure new InField projects using OpenID Connect and Azure AD, Microsoft's cloud-based identity and access management service.When you sign in to InField, you'll notice the new Login with Microsoft Azure option:Only select this option if your organization started using InField after this release and configured InField for this option. If you're already using InField, you sign in as you always have done using your company ID and credentials.

Cognite InField 9.0Major release
We are very proud to present this major release of InField that offers you the option to add measurement readings to checklists based on templates. To include measurement readings in a checklist, you must first allow for this in the checklist template. You'll notice a new checkbox in the Create new template window.As you fill in the template items, you get the option to add fields for measurement readings. These fields are Name (required), Unit (required), and Min. and Max. values (optional). For checklists based on this template, the measurement reading fields are available on each checklist item. You can add and edit integers and decimal numbers, and if min/max values were added in the template, any deviations are marked with a red line.The PDF report you can create from either the checklist or the template also shows the measurement readings in a separate section.And there's more! Find operation IDs (if you're using SAP) or activity IDs (if you're using WorkMate) with the new filter
We are eager to show you the new functionality for archiving checklist templates! If you are granted extended rights and run InField from a desktop, you can use the menu option Archive templates on the Templates page to move templates into the new Archived templates section. In this section, you'll see all archived templates sorted according to the area of expertise. Here, you can open, restore or delete a template, and view any reports based on checklists from the template. Note that if you delete the template, the checklists reports will no longer be available. Make sure to download the reports you want to keep.

With the new core sequences resource type we introduce support for storing log and tabular data in CDF. Typical use cases for sequences include:Storing a log based on distance or depth, with information in columns of different types for each entry. Storing and retrieving an entire performance curve with an x-y dependency.Feature highlightsStore numerically indexed rows, where each row is represented by multiple columns. Support for different types of values for each column: integer, floating-point or string. Store metadata related to each column individually, allowing you to relate information such as units, source/origin of the value. Store up to 200 columns. Contextualize sequences by relating them to the physical world and connect them to your existing assets. Use externalId to maintain the relation with your source systems.To learn more about sequences, see the concept guide.Sequences are available through CDF API v1, the Postman collection, and our official SDKs: Python SDK 1.3.0o

Cognite Data Fusion lets you fuse industrial data from multiple sources, making it easy to build applications using industrial data. Now end users of applications can easily search and browse for data using terms that they know with our release of labels.With labels you as an IT manager or data engineer can create a predefined set of managed terms that you can use to annotate and group assets.You can organize the labels in a way that makes sense in your business and use the labels to make it easier to find what you want.For example, you can create a label called pump and apply it to all asset resources that represent pumps, and then filter assets to see only pumps. Labels lets you annotate assets by what they are, in terms more familiar to domain experts, than what is present in the source system.Labels are available through:Cognite API v1 Our SDKs The Cognite Power BI connector The Cognite Data Source for GrafanaTry it out, and let us know what you think!
