Introduction

Thips page gives an overall summary of the main ThingScale components that you need to configure in order to set up ThingScale to process device streams, and how to configure them through the ThingScale Management Console UI.Given below the main components in ThingScale:

  1. Device Connector : Providing device connectivity and Secure transport mechanism.

  2. Device Manager : Manage Device ID, Token Authentication and device status.

  3. Channel Manager : Manage stream related to the device. 

  4. Event Manager : Near-realtime stream processing happens based on streams.

You can create device,channel and event using the ThingScale Management Console,which is available at https://m.thingscale.io/console/.

Optionally, you can directly create,modify,delete the object from REST APIs.

Creating an Device

In ThingScale there are two ways of device create method,

  • Manual Provision : To create device from Management Console or REST API

  • Auto Provision: To create device when the configured device is first connected.

ThingScale support Auto Provision to reduce the workload on the device registration tasks. 

To configure a device, you log in to the Management Console and select Device menu from left pane.
