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. Support X.509 certificates in IoT Edge for Raspbian (Linux) and the Device Provisioning Service (DPS)

    We are using a Raspberry Pi Zero W for a large-scale IoT sensor rollout. Our plan is to use IoT Edge on Raspbian (Linux) to run our Python software on the devices and leverage the IoT hub to deploy our code via modules to our devices. We also want to use the IoT hub Device Provisioning Service to further automate the rollout of newly added devices. The goal is to make this scalable to 1.000 devices as a Proof of Concept, and in a production phase scale up to 50.000-100.000 devices.

    We've tried to follow the tutorial by Microsoft to…

  2. Azure blob file upload

    We are planning to upgrade an existing production application from V1 to V2. In addition to streaming data (as messages to Azure IotHub), we also upload hourly aggregated data to Azure blob store. Can you share approximate time-lines when V2 can have support for Azure blob upload?

  3. Need a way to see a message as it is routed through the Edge

    An IoT Edge message correlation id should be provided so that specific message workflows can be diagnosed via module logging.

  4. IoT Hub device and module twins limit.

    There is limit of 8KB limit for IoT Hub device twins. What’s the limit on module twins? How much total size allowed for both device twins and module twins? Is any plan to enhance the size of both twins in GA or later release?

  5. BLE Sample

    Will a BLE sample be available?

    As I understand, it will require the module container to run in privileged mode to gain access to hardware devices... Is this supported?

  6. Hierarchy possibilities for edge devices.

    The purpose is to have for example 5 incoming sensors in the 'sensor' edge device where we can do some calculations on the edge. The output goes to another edge device, where again we can do some calculations on the edge with input from other similar 'sensor' edge devices. The last edge device in the chain will send the data to the IoT Hub.

  7. (Cloud-triggered) IoT Edge Runtime Updates

    Provide a way of an (automatic) cloud-triggered update mechanism for the IoT Edge Runtime through IoT Hubs Device Management. Providing update capabilities not only for the containers but for the runtime and even the underlying OS is crucial for IoT Scenarios.

  8. Example of C based module for Transparent gateway

    Can you please add code sample for transparent gateway use case? We use the v1 modules implementation for communication with other
    network protocol based on this example: https://github.com/Azure/iot-edge/blob/master/v1/samples/ble_gateway/iot-hub-iot-edge-physical-device.md. We would like to move the solution to v2. Modbus module is not very useful for our solution. Thank you.

  9. Issue iotedge commands from Azure

    It would be great to issue iotedge commands from Azure on specific devices. Especially the "iotedge logs" command to see what is happening on a device remotely.

  10. IoT edge device getting deleted from azure IoT hub

    My company has a policy to delete IoT device from azure IoT hub if you create it using symmetric key. You have to create the same using certificate. In case of IoT edge device i am getting only symmetric key device creation option only. As a result my IoT edge device getting deleted from azure IoT hub. Please help me on that.

  12. 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.

  13. Provision of IoT Edge Security Damon package for Tire 2 system

    For the Tier 1 system, the latest IoT Edge Security Damon package is provided in the package repository (https://packages.microsoft.com/)
    But for the Tire 2 system, it is not provided.
    For example, for Ubuntsu 18.04 of Tire 1, iotedge_1.0.4-1_amd64.deb is provided, Regarding Debian 9, it still iotedge_1.0.0-1_amd64.deb yet.
    Our products use Debian 9, and we are asked to provide packages that fix bugs from customers.
    We will to build it localy and provide it at our own repository, What do you think?
