  1. Support COAP natively for IoT Hub

    Early documentation mentions COAP support in IoT Hub, but it does not appear to be supported natively and so requires convoluted gateway/proxy which is another potential point of failure. Being lightweight, COAP is important to the IoT domain and IoT Hub should allow direct connections from low power devices as much as possible.

    • Microsoft IoT Central

      Companys starting to build out with IoT are always price conscious.
      I think the 30 day trial is ok, but often I start a trial as Im interested to learn, but when the time comes to actually use it, its expired.
      The jump from 30 day trial to $500/month is way to steep.
      If I have a IoT project Idea, I need to spent weeks/months testing the idea before I know it might be a going concern.
      I think there need to be a price tier for developers that say is restricted to <10 devices, and low use, and it…

      • Please offer more info on IOTA

        Please explain in more detail how IOTA will benefit Azure, because I still don't see the full picture and this goes for many others as well...

        • Interchange of messages between Event Hubs

          Hi Team,

          I am trying to build an IoT Build Solution using Azure Service for last one month. As part of this activity, I created event hub, lets call it as EH1 to publish and subscribe through Azure Functions. Everything was working fine until I create another event hub EH2 for sending different set of events from Streaming Analytics Job. Once created, I tried to access the newly created event hub EH2 via Functions. Surprisingly, I was getting messages which were posted to EH1. I am 100% sure the configurations are correct as 2 days I had this issue and…

          • C2D Support in REST APIs

            The REST APIs do not include C2D capabilities. Customers who need REST only solutions need this.

            • Azure IoT Edge alternate data stream

              Azure IoT Edge should be able to send upstream data not only to Azure IoT Hub, but also to an alternate “mirror” endpoint configurable via Azure IoT Hub.
              This is extremely important to integrate with 3rd-party industrial software automation appliances and software, not providing this would reduce IoT Edge adoption and force customers to lock in with a specific vendor.

              • Azure IoT Edge: Custom communication protocols

                Scenario with dozens of industrial communication protocol implementations: plugging additional protocols into Azure IoT Edge must be easy and not requiring code rewrite.
                Without this, Azure IoT Edge would be much more expensive and slower to be adopted by partner final customers.

                                  • Customers are concerned about the reliability of the stack

                                    Customer noted that they would often see the runtime fail to issue certain docker commands, but then they would try again and it would work. They would like assurances around the reliability of the stack, particularly around how it will recover from error even when no one is around to watch it.​

                                      Customer did not notice that the "Location" field was preset for them, and that was why the Storage Account drop down was empty. Furthermore, they suggested that the "Configure" flow should support a "Create New" experience without having to go back through the portal to configure a storage account.

                                        • Edge explorer needs to support consumer group for "monitor events"

                                          Customer was unable to monitor events successfully due to epoch error. They could not get consumer groups to work and did not see a way to supply this in the monitor events cli.​
