Azure IoT Edge

Azure IoT Edge moves analytics and logic out of the cloud and onto your on-premises devices. Using a cloud interface, you can deploy either Azure service logic or your own code to devices without having to physically access them. And offline capabilities mean that you can extract business insights anywhere, without worrying about maintaining constant communication with a cloud service.

More details about the services are available in the documentation.

  1. Connection of IoT Edge on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS with the IoT Hub

    I tried to set up an IoT Edge device on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and connect it to an IoT Hub. For the installation I followed the steps described here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/iot-edge/how-to-install-iot-edge-linux, what worked perfectly fine. After finishing the installation and filling the connection string into the config.yaml the 'iotedge check' command gave an error thath the Edge Hub cannot bind on ports on host. The reason being was that the container was not automatically started. After talking to the support it turned out that the solution was to deploy some other device (I tried with a simulated temperature sensor), as…

  4. Allow installation of IOT Edge (runtime) on Windows to a different directory and drive location.

    In an enterprise environment we are often restricted to where we are allowed to install software. For example all installed software should be on the D drive in Programs directory.

    This is currently not possible with the iot edge runtime without modifying the IOT Edge standard installation scripts.

  5. Issue related to IoT Edge Module Deployment.

    When I deploy a module to IoT Edge device using the Azure portal and open the same deployment again, it does not refresh the previous deployment and setup and consider the prevision deployment manifest only.

    After doing Refresh and going to Set Modules page works as expected.

  7. Progress bar for deployment of modules

    For development, testing and monitoring purposes it would be great if there would be more information about the progress of a deployment, especially on the Edge device itself. One can look at the logfiles for the start and finish of a deployment, but I would like to know more than this. My suggestion would be to see the container in the 'iotedge list' with status downloading (42MB/100MB, 42%), but I'm open to any other form of monitoring the progress of the deployment.

  8. Allow upstream IoT Hub (Event Hub) to be different as management one

    It would be nice to have possibility to set upstream IoT Hub (or even Event Hub) to be different as management IoT Hub. Scenario is, that Dev Company is taking care of development and operation of IoT Edge device, but collected data should flow to their customer subscription for further processing. Sure it is possible to connect to different IoT Hub from module and send data that way, but this bypasses routes feature provided by IoT Edge.

  9. Rust SDK Azure IoT Edge

    Since Rust is becoming increasingly popular it would be amazing to use Rust for creating custom IoT Edge modules. Rust would be a good fit for IoT Edge modules which require high performance and safety!

  11. Common project strucuture for iot edge solutions

    To integrate iot edge solutions into development tools, I found different possibilities.

    - The Visual Studio Code solution: https://docs.microsoft.com/de-de/azure/iot-edge/how-to-vs-code-develop-module

    -The Visual Studio solution: https://docs.microsoft.com/de-de/azure/iot-edge/how-to-visual-studio-develop-module

    Both ways uses different project structures. They are not interchangeable. Not only for development tools. I run into problems, when I want to use a iot edge project in azure pipelines with offical azure Iot-Edge-Build-plugin. (https://github.com/MicrosoftDocs/azure-docs.de-de/issues/341#issuecomment-493401019)
    I think it would be useful, if there is a common project structure for iot-edge solutions.

    when processing queued messages after reconnecting, send messages with LIFO instead of FIFO as the latest data is the most important for real time monitoring. This is similar to the one posted already

  13. Public List of Available IoT Edge Module

    It would be helpful for there to be a link to all published IoT Edge Modules. This could be a link from the GH repo to the market place and ensuring that even the OSS modules are available in the market place.

  14. Support Node.js and Python Edge modules on Windows

    Currently Node.js and Python custom Edge modules are only supported in Linux containers and therefore are not supported on Windows IoT or IoT Core platforms/devices as Linux containers are not supported on Windows in production. Linux containers should be supported on Windows (IoT Enterprise and IoT Core) or Python and Node.js modules should compile & run in Windows containers.

  15. Installing IoT Edge Runtime on Core OS.

    CoreOS is one of the popular container OS in the market.It will be great idea to install Azure IoT Edge Runtime(EdgeAgenet,EdgeHub,iotedged bootstrap security daemon) on Core OS.

    As per https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/iot-edge/support#operating-systems CoreOS is neither in Tier-1 nor tier-2 OS list for IOT EDGE RUNTIME.

  16. Module needs the ability to detec if offline

    In my PoC, I would have liked to route messages from a device WHERE ($hubIsUnavailable) directly to a module, and otherwise passed it directly upstream. The ability to have an edge module run business logic that sets flags to influence routing might be powerful. Instead I was able to implement the routing/forwarding in the module itself.

  17. Need better parent child relationship with IoT Edge

    • The Parent/Child relationship between edge and leaf devices is too restrictive for our application. We have customers that are load balanced across and within physical locations, and our devices need to roam both with and without internet connectivity. If the child device concept could be extended to contain entire deployment groups based on a certificate chain, that would be preferred. Then each of our customers could have their own intermediate certificate with each of their devices as a leaf; and that intermediate certificate could be tied to each of their Edge appliances

  18. Log a Warning if messages are deleted from the StoreAndForward/offline cache (because of TTL)

    Currently there is no way to figure out that messages were deleted because of the Time To Live/TTL StoreAndForward configuration. There should be a warning in the Logs if this happens to hint the deletion of messages that were not sent to IoT Hub. Ideally there is a configurable second warning before this happens (e.g. 10 minutes before messages get deleted because of TTL).
    In addition it would be great to add more control to the StoreAndForward/Caching/Queuing functionality of messaging - refer to ideas https://feedback.azure.com/forums/907045-azure-iot-edge/suggestions/33534802-more-options-or-configuration-parameters-of-stor and https://feedback.azure.com/forums/907045-azure-iot-edge/suggestions/36632884-low-bandwidth-partially-connected-message-deliv

  19. Iot Edge on Windows 10 Iot Core on RaspBerry Pi 3B

    Windows ARM architecture is not yet supported by IoT Edge. AMD64-based IoT Core platforms should work. I want the iot edge can work anywhere iot core was installed.
