Bosch IoT Asset Communication

2020-09-14 - Implicit provisioning of devices communicating via gateways

The latest update of the Bosch IoT Suite for Asset Communication package, comes with joint forces to improve the registration "on-the-fly" of devices communicating via a gateway device.

The gateways - acting on behalf of the devices - trigger implicit device registration by sending a telemetry or event message to the Bosch IoT Hub service. Afterwards the digital twin is created in the Bosch IoT Things service based on the provided template.

To facilitate the implicit provisioning of devices which communicate via a gateway, following changes have been implemented:

  • Bosch IoT Hub allows gateway devices to set a new property auto-provisioning-enabled.

  • Bosch IoT Things allows enabling the implicit provisioning at the level of the Hub-Thing connection based on a configurable template for the newly created thing.

At this occasion, various minor bugs have also been fixed.
