Bosch IoT Rollouts

List and filter actions

The Actions UI feature, which you can access through the left navigation, displays automatically a list of all actions which have been started in the context of your tenant.

An action is usually a software update operation requested for a target.

It is created automatically by a rollout campaign. An action is always reported and identified on the level of the target. In other words, one Action ID is associated with one target within one rollout campaign.

During the rollout, the action moves through multiple states, which can be monitored in real time.

List actions

The main view called Actions provides an unfiltered list of the actions with specific information.


By default, the following information is included in the list view, organized in text columns or icon columns respectively:

  • Date and time - the date and time when the action was created

  • Active - a colored icon indicating whether the action is active (green) or inactive (grey)

  • Status - an icon representing the current status of the action (e.g. running, scheduled, finished, canceled, error, etc.)
    For complete information, see Action state machine.

  • Action ID - the ID of the specific action

  • Target - the name of the target on which the action is performed; includes a hyperlink which leads to details of the specific target (Targets UI feature)

  • Rollout - the name of the rollout which created the action; includes a hyperlink which leads to details of the specific rollout (Rollouts UI feature)

  • Distribution set - the distribution set which was sent to the target via this action; includes a hyperlink which leads to details of the specific distribution set (Distribution sets UI feature)

You can configure the displayed columns and add new ones via the Configure columns icon images/confluence/download/thumbnails/2866176636/settings-version-1-modificationdate-1682670190000-api-v2.png in the top right:


You can search for specific columns or reset the view to its default columns via the input field and Reset icon images/confluence/download/thumbnails/2866176636/reset-version-1-modificationdate-1682601359000-api-v2.png on the top of the menu.

Refresh the actions list

As the action moves through multiple intermediate states during a rollout, it is important to refresh the list to see the current states.

For a manual refresh of the list, click the images/confluence/download/thumbnails/2866176636/refresh-version-1-modificationdate-1682601465000-api-v2.png Refresh icon in the header.

For an automatic refresh, click the images/confluence/download/thumbnails/2866176636/play%281%29-version-1-modificationdate-1682601222000-api-v2.png Enable auto-refresh icon in the header. To stop the automatic refreshing process, click the images/confluence/download/thumbnails/2866176636/pause-version-1-modificationdate-1682601296000-api-v2.png Disable auto-refresh icon that appeared in its place.

Search for actions

The search bar on top of the actions list allows you to search for specific actions.

It searches for the entered value among the following action detail fields: Target, Rollout, Distribution set name, and Distribution set version.

Filter actions

When your device fleet grows, each rollout will include more and more actions. Filtering the list of actions will help you find the ones of interest quite easily.

To do that, click the Filter icon images/confluence/download/thumbnails/2866176636/filter-version-1-modificationdate-1682673509000-api-v2.png above the list. This will open a dialog where you can enter the relevant criteria.


In particular, you can filter the actions by:

  • Selecting an action status from the drop-down menu

  • Typing a status code, which is a possible feedback of a target processing an action (e.g 200)

  • Entering the ID of the rollout which started the action

  • Entering the ID of the rollout group which started the action

  • Entering the ID of the distribution set which is transferred through this action

  • Selecting whether the action is Active or Inactive

  • Entering the ID of a specific action

Click the Apply button to obtain the filtered list.

Please, note that it will contain only the actions that match all entered filter criteria.

The applied filter will be then indicated by a blue chip on top of the list.

The list of actions is automatically filtered when you follow the View actions quick link available in the details view of a specific target, rollout, or distribution set.
