Register a device automatically

Bosch IoT Things supports the automatic creation of things and their policies for two scenarios:

  • for edge or virtual devices, which communicate via a gateway,

  • and for gateway or stand-alone devices, which use proper device certificates for authentication.

Both scenarios work in combination with Bosch IoT Hub, to enable automatic registration of a device, when it connects for the first time to the Bosch IoT Suite infrastructure.

As a subscription owner, you can configure the “Device via Bosch IoT Hub” connection to define which thing template should be applied, when automatically creating the thing.

The configuration can be enabled and customized either via the HTTP API or via the Things UI.
