Force reprovisioning of the IoT EDGE Daemon locally
Provide some kind of configuration of the IoT Edge runtime where I can select the provisioning scenario which works for me. That means, forced reprovisioning is facilitated by the IoT Edge Runtime.
This way, eg. an IoT Edge on the move can start reprovisioning on its own to find the nearest IoT Hub without interrupting local compute (data ingest, transformations, executing ML, Executing actions).
Rebooting an IoT Edge just to force reprovisioning is not an option. The logic on the device has to run 24/7. Lack of internet connectivity (either no internet connection of during reprovisioning to a new IoTHub) has nothing to do with all telemetry ingest and ML models running on my edge device.
Control over reprovisioning could be established in the config.yaml
We’ve completed our feature planning for the second half of 2020. We’ll consider this when we do feature planning for the first half of 2021.
