This topic describes how to create a product, add a device to the product, and obtain certificate information about the device in the IoT Platform console. The certificate information includes the ProductKey, DeviceName, and DeviceSecret parameters. Certificate information about a device must be added to a device SDK-based project. When a device attempts to communicate with IoT Platform, IoT Platform uses the certificate information about the device to authenticate the device.

Procedure

  1. Log on to the IoT Platform console.
  2. Create a product.
    1. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Devices > Products.
    2. On the Products page, click Create Product, specify the required parameters, and click Save.

  3. Add a device to the product.
    1. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Devices > Devices.
    2. On the Devices page, click Add Device and add a device to the product.

Result

After a device is added, the certificate information about the device is displayed. You can also follow these steps to view the certificate information about a device. Go to the Devices page, find a device, click View next to the device, and view the certificate information on the Device Details page.
