  1. Y-axis in Tiles could be expanded to the min/max values on the selected range

    Make Tiles spark line y axis min/max the current selected timeline range instead of the total stream min/max range

    • Accept Access Key and Bucket Key as get parameters in API

      Some devices can't set HTTP headers and are limited to HTTP GET. Please support such devices by accepting all parameters in guery rather than headers and json.

        The API now supports using the HTTP GET verb for sending data. This is a-typical of HTTP REST style APIs, but very convenient for many simple HTTP clients. Since GET requests cannot contain request bodies, you will have to supply data via url parameters. An example would be this:

        curl ‘https://groker.initialstate.com/api/events?accessKey=YOUR_ACCESS_KEY&bucketKey=YOUR_BUCKET_KEY&some_key=some_value&some_other_key=some_other_value’;

        This curl command doesn’t specify a verb action, and therefore uses the default HTTP GET verb. You could also paste this url into a browser and the browser will perform a GET which will send the data to that bucket.

      • Save Waves Configuration (order, amplification, etc)

        Save changes in Waves such as signal order, signal amplification, hidden signals, etc. so that on re-load, Waves is restored to its previous state.

        • Deleting individual data points inside a bucket

          This request comes from an issue of sometimes a multisensor in my Home Automation System sends out a crazy wild erroneous reading and it then totally throws of the charting/graph visual.

          Would be nice to be able to delete single data points or a group/chunk of data points inside of a bucket for times like this. Thanks!

            Real-time expressions provide the ability to filter out unwanted data points and data ranges in Tiles and Waves (http://support.initialstate.com/knowledgebase/articles/1093294-real-time-expressions-filter-out-unwanted-data).

            For accounts that do not have real-time expressions, you can set the min/max y-axis for line graphs and min/max range for gauge views to prevent an erroneous data point from dominating the view in Tiles. See http://support.initialstate.com/knowledgebase/articles/871260-tiles-set-line-view-min-and-or-max-y-axis for details.

          • A blank tile or stacking tile

            I'd like to make columns for my data points. Right now it appears tiles must be stack on the right (and probably wrap around) to the next line. I'd like a bit more free form in placement.

                • Ability to create multiple tiles for same data from Web

                  Currently one tile is automatically created per data item. It will be useful to create multiple tiles with same data. The purpose is to have different views (Line, Gauge etc..) for same data item.

                    • Rename buckets and rename readings

                      Would be useful to rename a bucket eg. from "garage" to "floor zero" and being able to rename "temperature" to "Garage temperature" to be able to better expand and rethink your sensors arrangement
                      (you have to reflect the changes on the sensors, that's ok)

                      • Ability to rename tiles.

                        Meaning, if a device is renamed in ST it can be re-associated to the old device name in IS. Currently the only options is to create a new bucket with the new device names.

                            • Allow for a stream to be defined as the result of an expression where the input could be other stream values.

                              I have a use case, where I am collecting to values, but what I would like to display is actually the result of something like:

                              virtual stream = (2*value1 + value2 ) / 3

                                  I would like to be able to create an expression, that would be associated with a particular stream, and would be executed every time a new data value is posted to that stream.

                                  This could be as simple as adding an offset to the value, or more complex like executing a formula.

                                        This has been added, however, it’s important to note that the gauge tile doesn’t currently support specifying a min and max, the min and max are derived from the values in the current viewed timespan. We are working on support for the ability to predefine a max and min range for a gauge tile. Enjoy!

                                        • day, week, month, year tile views

                                          tiles for 24h, 1 week, 1 month, 1 year - these are typically used when data is logged over a long time and days are compared to one another as are weeks and months etc...
                                          Additionally, if one is in one of those views you can shift forward or backward, i.e. if you are viewing a value for a month, then you can move to the previous or the next... same with the others..
