    In the 'Dashboard' you will see the three main perspectives of Bosch IoT Manager, namely 'Device Management', 'Tasks Management' and 'Rule Engine', as well as links to the 'Dashboards' of Bosch IoT Rollouts and Bosch IoT Things (see screenshot below).

Register a Namespace

Your package instance has been configured automatically, however, you have to set a namespace following these steps:

  1. Click 'Things Dashboard' to open the Bosch IoT Things UI.

  2. Navigate to 'Namespace'.

  3. Click 'Create new namespace' and follow the 4 steps of the wizard. Each step is further clarified below:

    1. Enter a namespace in the field. The namespace can be anything, as long as it conforms to the reverse domain name notation, e.g. example.dm, as in our case. However, it needs to be unique, i.e. you cannot register the exact same namespace for multiple instances. Click 'Continue'.

    2. To enable the Device Management package to work properly, select 'Complete' on the Index step.

    3. The review step shows your settings.

    4. Confirm with 'Create'.
