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. 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.

    • Show SAS token in IoT Hub properties

      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?

            • Make SharedAccessSignatureBuilder public in Csharp service client

              It's already public in Microsoft.Azure.Devices, but we don't really want to reference this library from a client, because it mostly contains service stuff.

              • Robust file upload (with resume) for the C device SDK

                Azure supports uploading large files in chunks to support continuing broken uploads. This should be added in the C device SDK as well.
                I could also imagine having the user implement this and just providing a hook to doing something with a CloudBlockBlob:
                public Task UploadBlobAsync(string blobName, Func<CloudBlockBlob, Task> upload);

                • Support virtual folders for Blob upload in the C device client SDK

                  Upload to blob fails when destination file name includes a virtual folder e.g. "testfolder/hello_world.txt". The sample application iothub_client_sample_upload_to_blob works as expected with a single file name "hello_world.txt", but fails with a folder prefix "testfolder/hello_world.txt".

                    • Add samples or support for TLS Cert test servers

                      Offer the ability to test an Azure IoT Hub device client against an IoT Hub server whose TLS certificates have been revoked / are outdated to validate that invalid TLS server certificates are correctly handled by my implementation and the C SDK.

                              ESP32 is the new and upcoming version of the ESP8266. It's cheap and more powerful than the EPS8266 and as an IoT developer I want access to it and the power of the Azure IoT suite.

                                    • Make a CAD for Board Development in Visual Studio

                                      Not really Azure related, but...

                                      How about extending Visual Studio so that I can drag and drop a Raspberry Pi or some other device from the toolbox? I can then drag over a power source, some wires/lights/resistors/servos/etc.. and connect them to the board. VS tells me if the circuit is complete and any problems with the wiring. I then can write code and see how the emulated device behaves. I then can send the code to a real Raspberry PI plugged in (like you do now). It would greatly help software devs looking at EE for the 1st time.

                                      • support json compression and decompression

                                        json is quite a lousy format when bandwidth is limited but streaming analytics depends on it, please support a compression format such as MessagePack which is automatically decompressed when ingested into IoTHub

                                        • Allow Device Twin Metadata on Device Creation via REST APIs

                                          Need to create a device with a device twin property. We want to do that with one call. Right now it is two, one to create the device and one to add the Device Twin property.
