    5. The Status will be Provisioning while the service subscription is being created.

    6. In case the Status is still not Active after some seconds, click the Refresh button.

  3. Click Show Credentials to see your access credentials.
    The example shows the structure of the credentials.

    {
    "service_instance_id" : "xxx-xxx-xxx-xxx-xxx",
    "provisioning_endpoint" : "https://deviceprovisioning.eu-1.bosch-iot-suite.com/api/1/your-service-instance-ID",
    "hub" : {
    "tenant_id" : "xxx",
    ...more-details...
    },
    "things" : {
    "api_token" : "xxx",
    ...more-details...
    }
    }

    All these credentials are also useful in case your need to address one of these services by their own API.

    Copy the binding credentials or at least the service instance ID to your local machine, as you will need such credentials later on.

Your service instance is free.
In case you want to subscribe a paid service plan, please start the subscription via the AWS Marketplace. Follow the links at the bottom to the https://www.bosch-iot-suite.com/service/asset-communication/#serviceplans table.
