Finally you will need to assign the distribution - the bundle prepared by you - to your target, i.e. the gateway device based on Bosch IoT Edge that you registered.

Trigger the update

Navigate to the Deployment view.

  1. The Targets column should display your registered device.

  2. The Distributions column should display your distribution set created at the step Prepare a software update.

    If for any reason you do not see your device or distribution, feel free to use the search dialog at the top-right corners of the respective columns or go through the steps once again.

  3. Assign your Distribution Set to your target (device) via drag&drop.
