Introduction to the Bosch IoT Suite Console

This video shows you the main features of the Bosch IoT Suite Console - the web UI of Bosch IoT Suite through a Bosch IoT Device Management subscription. See how the console helps you to get started with information about your subscription and organization, an interactive product overview, and access to the entire user and API documentation. Moreover, it supports you with a customizable menu, a namespace and provisioning assistant, device and device sets management, and navigation with single sign-on to all services and systems. Bosch IoT Suite Console allows you to manage your devices in bulk - through tasks or automated rules, and to monitor all device executions.
