  2. To manage floor plans and allow users to mark devices in the plan

    Allow users uploading floor plans.
    Then, the user can mark devices in the plan which can be displayed on the dashboard.
    The latest telemetry data can be shown below the icon representing the device.

  3. Allow more flexible sizing on widgets

    For things like labels, the 1x1 minimum size is too big. It would be nice to have something that could be smaller and serve as a section header or break.

  4. Management of multiple IoT central instances via one management environment

    We have to manage templates, flow, rules etc..etc.. per individual IoT central. We would like to see a way of working / service where we have a central overview overall to direct registration of devices or update templates

    We’re currently focused on providing a great experience to manage multiple tenants within a single IoT Central instance. Once we ship that capability, we’ll re-asses if there’s demand for this multi-app management strategy. If you have more details on your use cases, please let us know.

    Thanks,
    Luis on behalf of the IoT Central team

  6. Add the old "Measurements" view as a default view

    I am seriously missing out the very intuitive Measurements view, showing all Telemetry, all States and all Events (if so configured) in the same UI view. There doesn't seem to be a similar view in v3, which surely must be a mistake. In general I find V3 UI much less vivid and professional than V2. Wouldn't it be possible create the Measurement view as a default view, automatically created?

  7. Dynamic Device Groups in Dashboards and automatic update tiles.

    Currently i can add a tile on a dashboard and select a device group.
    Below the device group i have to select all devices individualy. This is not good to maintanance. When a new device will join the devicegroup then i have to update all tiles from this dashboard and add the single device.

    It would be very helpful if i can select just "all devices" in a "device group" and the application updates the tiles automatically.

    Best greetings
    Fabrice

  8. Map should use LastValue instead of Africa

    When the location telemetry reports slow (example: running on batteries, therefore once per day) and the Map is configured for a faster interval. It will place the PIN at coordinates 0,0

    Render the PIN in the last known location instead

  9. Display Date in International format on Main Dashboard. Currently USA is used

    When using "last known value" tile, the "recevied" date is shown as USA format, even though Dasboard language is English UK.
    Please change date format to reflect Dashboard language.

    Refer to support case 119072323000358 for more information.

  10. Issue: device templates shows "no items found" in data export

    Hi all,

    In "Data export" form, I tried to use a filter: device templates equals <my-device-tempalte> but it shows "no items found" (as the attached image).

    I have added 2 device templates.

    Do I miss something? thanks.

  11. Bug report: Device template name naming issue

    When creating a new device template, if I edit manually the identity name (The UID to be called via API) removing the automatically generated suffix to make it identical to the template display name, the following happen:
    - a new identity is generated and displayed in the dashboard, with another random suffix
    - calling the API with the displayed template identity name results in an error
    - calling the API to get the template identity name associated with a certain device returns the original automatically generated template identity name

    As a result, we need to use this template identity name…

  12. With DTDL v2, Events shall support Objects

    Currently, the only thing that can be associated with an event is a numeric or string value.
    Events should support complex objects and the visualization should be smart to add columns as needed.

    example:
    {"beaconInRange":{"Tag":"0001", "Rssi":-64, "Battery":20}}

  13. Custom time range between 12:00 PM and 12:59 PM not selectable on the measurements tab.

    Measurements tab > Time Range > Custom

    Custom time range between 12:00 PM and 12:59 PM are not selectable on the measurements tab.

    The hour drop-down only has 00 - 11.
    00:30 PM works as if it was 12:30 PM, but this looks odd.

  15. Bug: Python sample app for previewing device template is out of sync with iotc python sdk

    The Python sample app that is downloaded for previewing a device template is out of sync with iotc python sdk. It will not even run as it appears to be using an outdated version of the sdk.

  18. Increase update frequency on Measurement tab to near real-time capability

    I use the IoT Central Bridge to send data to IoT Central in IoT demos.
    Sending simulated data from Node-Red or from a hardware device directly to the IoT Central Bridge, data points / measurements on Measurements tab are seriously lagging. Sometimes a change in value takes 30 seconds plus to show up, making demos hard.

  19. Data Pre-processor in the pipeline

    JSON is great but is too verbose for technologies that pay per byte or the battery depends on the traffic. Example cellular, LoRa or NB-IoT

    With Plug and Play and a known contract on the data definition, it should be completely possible to define data structures and support CSVs or even binary messages.

    A Data pre-processor converts the raw telemetry payloads to JSON

  20. IoT Central REST API: Add more operations for devices

    Currently are available operations described in the document https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/iotcentral/devices

    There are missing useful operations for device such as:

    Get DeviceTemplate

    GET https://{subdomain}.{centralDnsSuffixInPath}/api/preview/devices/{device_id}/deviceTemplate

    Get ConnectionString (compatible to the IoT Hub)

    GET https://{subdomain}.{centralDnsSuffixInPath}/api/preview/devices/{device_id}/connectionString

    Today we have to call multiple times to obtain a requested result. Using the single Get will simplified these operations on the client side.

    Thanks
    Roman
