Registering a Device
Register a device on the IoT platform and define device parameters. Then the device can connect to the IoT platform if authentication succeeds.
- Choose .
- Click the Individual Registration tab, and then click Register. In the dialog box displayed, set the parameters based on Table 1, and click Confirm.
Table 1 Individual device registration parameters
Select a product.
You can select a product only after it is defined on the Product Models page. If the product model has not been uploaded, upload or create it first.
Specify the unique physical identifier of a device, such as its IMEI or MAC address. This parameter is carried during device access and used by the IoT platform to authenticate the device.
For a native MQTT device, the device ID (corresponding to the node ID) and secret generated after the registration are used for IoT platform connection.
For an NB-IoT device or a device integrated with the AgentLite SDK, the node ID and pre-secret entered during the registration are used for IoT platform connection.
- For an NB-IoT device, the pre-secret is used to encrypt the transmission channel between it and the IoT platform.
- For a device integrated with the AgentLite SDK, the pre-secret is used by the IoT platform to authenticate its access.
- A native MQTT device does not require a pre-secret.
Enter the pre-secret again.
