The Devices section in the Everyware Cloud Console provides status information about the devices that are associated to the account Everyware Cloud in scope and it allows to remotely manage the target devices.
The Device Registry table lists all devices that have been connected to your Everyware Cloud account. The table summarizes the following information for each device. In addition, table can be customized to show specific data from the connected device, directly in the table cells. The available columns can be listed by interacting with the controls of the table headers.
Provides a visual indication of the device status in relationship to its connection to the Everyware Cloud Broker: Green: Device is connected properly. Yellow: Device performed an orderly disconnect. Red: Device lost its connection.
A unique identifier within an Everyware Cloud account that represents a single gateway device. This Client ID maps to the Client Identifier defined in the CONNECT message of the MQTT specifications. For a gateway, the MAC address of its primary network interface is generally used as the Client ID of that gateway.
A “user-recognizable” name assigned to that device in the MQTT Cloud Client, for display purposes only. The Display Name can be provided by the device itself or assigned server-side. The Display Name is an alias of the Client ID, so it is device specific.
Last Event On
Last time the device sent a life-cycle message to the Everyware Cloud.
Last Event Type
The type of the last life-cycle message sent by the device to the Everyware Cloud.
The list of applications installed on the device responding to the Everyware Cloud device management protocol.
The identifier and version of the IoT framework installed on the device.
Devices will be automatically added to the Device Registry upon establishing the first connection to Everyware Cloud. Devices can be manually added to the Device Registry by clicking on the Add button.
Deleting a device from the registry only deletes the profile and history information. It does not delete the data published by the device.
Device Attributes such as Display Name, Status, its Access Group and Custom Attributes can be changed by clicking on the Edit button, after selecting a device from the table.
The Description tab shows the profile as reported by the device to Everyware Cloud. The Device profile contains information regarding the Cloud Connection, the GPS position, the device Hardware, the device Software, the cellular Modem, and the Network Interfaces.
The device profile also reports the custom device attributes that are assigned to the device on the server-side.
Each Device can be assigned one or more Tags. A Tag is a string which will be associated to one or more devices. Tags can be used to create target groups when performing bulk operations, both from the web console and from the REST APIs. Tags will be persisted in the internal Everyware Cloud database and will be available even if the Device is offline, thus giving the possibility of filtering devices indipendently from their connection status.
In the Device section of the Everyware Cloud Console, select a Device and navigate to the Tags tab. From the Tags, device administrators can manage the tags applied to a device, adding new ones or removing existing ones.
Upon establishing a connection to Everyware Cloud, devices publish a Birth Certificate life-cycle message that contains information on the device hardware and software configuration. Devices will also notify Everyware Cloud when they disconnect gracefully by publishing a Death Certificate life-cycle message. Through the characteristics of the MQTT protocol should a device lose its connection to the Broker, the Everyware Cloud platform is informed through a Last-Will Testament message. In addition to connection monitoring, a device event is published and logged by Everyware Cloud after each device management operation.
The Everyware Cloud Console allows account administrators to monitor the status and review the full life-cycle history of their devices.
Access the Devices section in Everyware Cloud Console, select the device and then click the Events tab. Select the Date Range to control the period over which events will be displayed. Data can be exported in Excel or CSV format by clicking the Export button under the Events tab.
