As a next step, find your newly registered device in the Bosch IoT Manager Console. Go through its detailed information and execute instant management actions, following the steps below.

Prerequisites:

For the sake of a richer type of example we have connected an Edge Services runtime to our Edge Agent. Learn how to do that via Enable Edge Services with Bosch IoT Device Management.

Exploring the device

  1. Go to the 'Device Management' perspective, open the 'Gateways' view, where you should automatically see your registered gateway.

    If for any reason you do not see the device, type its device ID in the field called 'Filter by id' (case-sensitive) and press 'Enter'.

  2. Expand the gateway to view its related digital twin representations, which come from the Edge Services enablement.

  3. Select the gateway to see detailed predefined information about it in the 'Gateway Info' section to the right.

  4. If necessary, you can manage the gateway by:

    1. Attaching it to a directory group ('Attach' button). If the device is already part of a directory group, the button will state 'Move Device'.

    2. Tagging it ('Tag Device' button)

    3. Adding, editing and removing custom attributes to it (through the icons in the 'Attributes' section)

    4. Unregistering it ('Unregister' button)

All gateway features, including its bundles represented as features, will be listed in the 'Features' area.

When you select a feature, you will see its properties in the right-bottom view of the Bosch IoT Manager Console.
You can also instantly control the feature, if it supports any actions - you will see them listed in the 'Actions Info' section.

The screenshot above shows a selected bundle available on an edge device connected through this gateway. You may try to stop the bundle by clicking the 'stop' command.
After the command is received and executed by the gateway, the new bundle state (RESOLVED) will be reflected in the 'state' field.



You can now create your first task involving this newly registered device.
