Support FAQ > Data Sources > How do I convert existing PI interfaces using the PI SDK to the new RDA (Rich Data Access) interface?
Upgrading Visual KPI to use the new RDA interface for PI is easy. First, create a new interface for your Visual KPI instance using the Visual KPI Server Manager. Right click on Interfaces and then Create a new one of type PI RDA. Once this is complete, open your Visual KPI Designer, and the read in the definition of any objects you wish to change to use the new interface (KPIs, Trends, etc). Do a Select All (Ctrl A) and then a Replace (Ctrl H). In the top box type the name of your existing PI Interface. In the bottom box type the name of the new PI RDA interface, then select Replace All. After saving these KPIs (or any other object type), the system should use the new RDA interace correctly.
Please contact us if your system behavior is different. We will walk through it together with you online.
