Project with subproject/applications
When using multiple sensor types within 1 project. All sensor data is forwarded to our application with 1 stream. We need to recognise the sensor type in our application.
In (for example) TTN, we can create a application per sensor type and thus have a endpoint per sensor type.
Would it be possible to do this on iotcreators?
Or do we need to have a extra project for that? (But that would mean extra costs)
Hi Lauwie, you if you register a device you can set uplink message tags in which you could store the sensor type, I guess. Would that work?
If you really need different endpoints for every device that would mean one device per project. How many devices/projects would that be? And would that mean you would need a new project every time you want to add a new device?
I didn’t knew about the uplink message tags. Can I add them to existing devices?
It wouldn’t be an endpoint per device. Let’s say (example) an endpoint for 100 location trackers and a different endpoint for 50 Parking sensors.
In my application I create a flow for the location trackers and a flow for the parking sensors (independent from each other). When I add extra location trackers to the ‘location trackers endpoint’, they will reach the corresponding application (same with the parking sensors in the example).
For now this would be two endpoints. But I would prefer to have the option to add more (also for development devices, separated from the live devices).
@lauwie007 It’s a new feature we added a while ago - at the moment, unfortunately, you need to set it when registering the devices and cannot be changed later. So you would need to re-add the devices to make it work.
Let’s set up a call and we can go through some options regarding the different end-points with multiple projects. Please just send me an email to email@example.com with some meeting proposals.
