Bosch IoT Device Management - will be discontinued by mid 2024

2021-11-22 - Bosch IoT Things - service update

Our latest service release comes with various changes:

Trigger the de-provisioning with a live message

In some custom scenarios the Device Provisioning API can not be requested directly to delete a thing, its policy, device and device credentials.

However, you can achieve the same result with a live message, that is subscribed by a managed connection, which is empowered to request de-provisioning.

With the new service update, the Connections UI offers a new template for creating and configuring the connection.

Find a detailed description on all steps involved in such a procedure in our new how-to section: Trigger de-provisioning via a live message.

Connection log publishing

Managed connections help you to integrate your custom applications with the digital twin service layer of Bosch IoT Device Management.

For development stages you can activate logging via the Connections UI, however, this feature will only be active for one hour.

For production scenarios a continuous logging might be necessary, however as of now we don't provide self-service for subscriptions to establish such forwarding of logs.

Customers of standard plans with a silver or gold support plan, who need to store the log files of their connections in a custom data store, can contact us via support channel to get such a forwarding of the log files.

Find details in our FAQ section Configure log forwarding.

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