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. C2D Messaging

    I know direct methods are possible but sometimes you just want to have a queue of C2D messages which are delivered to devices when they come online. Direct methods only work when a device is connected and it would require some effort to implement the aforementioned scenario. Also one would need some routing logic to deliver those messages to modules.

  2. Document how to connect Azure Sphere Device as Downstream Device to Edge

    It would be great to connect the new Azure Sphere to the IoT Hub on Edge to use Sphere in a Transparent Gateway Scenario

  3. Certificate based Proxy Authentication

    Can you please provide support for certificate based proxy authentication on IoT Edge. The certificate are client signed certificates used to securely authenticate within the client network.

  4. Remote Restart of the IoT EDGE Daemon for re-provisining services

    For DPS re-provision scenarios, such as moving the device to a new IoT hub or setting new configuration of the device, the daemon needs to restarted in order to use the config.yaml file to communicate with DPS, so the configuration can be updated.

    it would be useful to be able to restart the daemon remotely ( via a direct method of the edge agent as an example )

    We’ll likely add this capability as we expand our device management and update capabilities. In the meantime, you can write a custom module that exposes this method and calls the correct system methods for the OS used by your devices.
