Azure IoT

This forum is to get feedback on the new IoT services: Azure IoT Hub and Azure IoT suite. This forum will help the engineering team collect feedback from our customers and users and help us understand and prioritize the roadmap.

How can we improve Microsoft Azure IoT?

  1. Supporting CSV file format in Iot Hub Message Routing

    Right now, message routing supports only Apache Avro format while storing device messages to blob storage. It would be good if there is a support for CSV file format also like stream analytics does.

    Use case: D2C messages can be stored in storage account using three ways 1) using Function App, 2) using ASA 3) Message routing. If MR supports the CSV, we don't need an additional service like FA or ASA.

    • Add TLS Session Ticket support to reduce data exchange during TLS connection

      Since many IOT devices could use SIM cards with limited internet data contract, I think it could be a great idea to support TLS Session Ticket to reduce the data exchanged by peers at each Iothub connection/disconnection: certificates exchange can be ignored if the peers are already paired by a previously successful connection, so we can avoid about 10kB of data each connection.

      "When the server sends the “Server Hello” message, it can include a session identifier. The client should store it and present it in the “Client Hello” message of the next session. If the server finds the corresponding…

      • Provide Business Alerting for Invalid/Missing/Disconnected Devices

        Have a mechanism in the Azure Portal to configure alerting (email, sms, skype) for the following situations:
        1. Tell me if I havent received a message from this device/sensor in a certain period of time
        2. If I received a message from a device/sensor, but it contains data outside an expected range
        3. If I received a message from a device/sensor but it wasnt in a valid format (e.g. invalid JSON),.

        We have had to build our own solution using Azure Function and Logic Apps. This should be built in to IoT Hub out of the box.

          • Allow to use "connectionState" to identify conected devices

            Certain applications requires to know if device is disconnected with accuracy<1 minute. By implementing heartbeat pattern as advised (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/iot-hub/iot-hub-devguide-identity-registry) with large amount of devices it creates enormous volumes of heartbeat messages and it results in generating 99.9% of quota messages just to know when device goes offline (Disconnected).

            • Support Korea region

              There're many manufacturing companies in Korea.
              I'm sure IoT Hub is the one of the most useful service for them.
              Could you tell me, is there any plan to support it in Korea region, very soon hopefully?

              • Add native support for GSM modules such as SIM900 or SIM800

                GSM Modules such as SIM800 and SIM900 are controlled using AT commands. The idea would be to add support in the SDK for establishing SSL connection and sending/receiving messages to/from IoT Hub over HTTP using AT commands under the hood.

                        • Allow for fall-through routing rules

                          It would be useful to allow routing rules to be set up with a fall through processing behavior. This would allow routing logic to be structured such that duplicate property checks across a series of rules would not be repeated.

                          • IoT BACnet Stack SDK for Azure

                            It would be wise to add an IoT SDK with BACnet communication support. This would generally solve the common problems of using different open source libraries. Instead if Microsoft can provide this library/SDK as part of IoT SDK would be really useful for Industrial automation users.

                            SDK should easily be able to provide a configurable interface to easily communicate to BACnet/IP devices available in Azure Cloud. This also should provide secure bi-directional communication options as well.

                            • Create custome IoT solution

                              I am new to the Azure IoT Suite and trying to wrap my head around how the system works as a whole. For my application, the IoT Hub is very advantageous for its message handling and scaling capabilities. I am wondering if I can use the IoT Hub and DocumentDB to gather and aggregate all my messages. I would then like to have an application outside the IoT Suite access the database and display to my own custome front-end.

                              Can I only have the data ingestion be handled by the IoT suite? And then be able to write my own…

                                • Read from IoT Hub like a generic MQTT server

                                  I appears that you cannot read from IoT Hub without using one of the prescribed SDKs. Furthermore it seems like reading is not well supported outside of the .NET SDK (I am talking about monitoring messages, not reading back ACKs after writing).

                                  I would be a lot easier if IoT Hub could be connected to with a generic MQTT connector.

                                    It would make life easier if SAS tokens were automatically generated and presented in the portal (both under Device Explorer and Shared Access Policies). Just need user to enter a TTL value.

                                      • Custom endpoints for Service Bus topic and subscription

                                        Hi,

                                        On portal, could you please add the "subscription" parameter to the Service Bus topic endpoints ? It will be really useful when we deal with the IoT Hub routes. Topics subscriptions are currently only available by code. This will simplify Bus uses if this is available.

                                        Regards

                                        • Add support for SAM3X8E Cortex-M3 to the C device SDK

                                          There is Arduino Due build on SAM3X8E Cortex-M3 which is very similar to Mega 2560 from the number of pins perspective.
                                          Is is possible to bring the support of this SDK to this platform?
