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.

  1. Bring IoT Hub into Azure Stack

    Industry sector (with integrated IIOT) will certainly appreciate Azure Stack - power of Azure in own Datacenter.

  2. new feature for IoT Hub and Event router

    Hello,
    many client is asking to have Azure PaaS services avail not on public endpoints but only via internal vnet connected to client side services via server to server VPN.
    this request come especially for:
    - iot hub
    - event hub
    - storage
    - sql database

    thanks

    This is not in our plans for now but definitively an interesting scenario.
    As of today you can already do so in different ways such as compressing data in your device code before sending and using an Azure Function on the back end that will be triggered each time a compressed message arrives. Not totally integrated into IoT Hub but gives you the choice of the compression format and flexibility in routing messages before decompressing content (using message headers for routing).

  5. 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).

  7. Support Iot hub upload requests monitoring

    Iot hub should be able to log upload requests, not only upload notifications from the device.
    At the moment a production team is not able to check if a device has tried to upload a blob.

  8. Consider a pricing model that bills based om the number of messages instead a fixed number per day

    Consider a pricing model that bills based om the number of messages instead of a tier model with a fixed number per day. This is much more flexible when dealing with spiky traffic. It is also much easier to predict traffic volumes over a long period, than estimating a reasonable day average.

  9. Should be able to "Stop" any service, including IoT Hubs

    Please include "Stop" as a feature of any service that "runs." You can stop a VM, App Services and Stream Analytics jobs. Why not a SQL Database, DocumentDB, IoT Hub, EventHub, etc? Heck, should be able to Stop a Resource Group, which obviously would stop every service within.

  10. 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.

  11. SSH Tunneling to Devices

    Customer uses a Linux box to wire all the sensors which runs an OPC UA server. A user with SU privileges will SSH into the box and fix any issues related to malfunctioning OPC server, configuration change, etc. In terms of the number of sessions, the SSH session is only used occasionally on a per device basis. This falls under broader device management category for non-constrained devices like PLC and RTU used in a lot of industrial automation scenarios. If IoT Hub wants to be the focal point for industrial automation devices, it is prudent to offer that capability. If…

  13. 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);

  14. Method to determine real size of message in Device/Service Client SDK

    Since the SDK is adding its own headers and serializes the content which is sent to the IoT Hub, then it is not possible to upfront know if a message will be too large.

    Would be nice it there was a method that could give the size, so we can compare to the limits of the IoT Hub.

  16. Field Gateway SDK: Please provide a Device Management module

    The Field Gateway SDK will be used to manage leaf node devices. Device Management module is a must have and at this point must be coded by each developer implementing a gateway. Please provide a baseline Device Management module that ships with the Gateway.

  18. Need guidance on how to handle twin data > 8kb

    The customer anticipates needing to push larger configurations via Device Twins than the currently supported 8K limit. We need to detail the best patterns and practices to push larger configuration files to/from devices & module twins.
