Implicitly create things when a new device is registered

In case you work with devices, which communicate via a gateway device, you can configure the connection to automatically create a new thing in the Bosch IoT Things service.

The configuration can be enabled and customized either via the HTTP API or via the Things UI.

The default configuration for a Hub-Things connection will create

  • a thing with the given device ID (received via the header device_id),
  • a policy, using the function to copy the policy of the gateway,
  • and an attribute named Info, which documents the gateway ID.
