Devices are a core data type in the portal and represent basic users on the IoT platform. Here are some key definitions regarding devices on the portal.
- Device: This is a device (API Basic User) on the IoT Platform. A device can be linked to one or more account. Linking can be done programmatically or manually by the Super Admin. A configuration is required in the Advanced Config to enable a device to link to more than one account.
- Device Type: A device can be linked to a device type. By default this feature is disabled. A device type is useful to create additional data fields describing that device to be presented in the portal. Linking a device to a device type can be done manually or programmatically.
