You can call this operation to update the deduplication rule for property messages that are reported by devices of a specified product. If the call is successful, the new rule are immediately applied to all devices of the product.

Message deduplication rules

Based on the rules you set, IoT Platform determines whether to use the rule engine to forward data from devices to a specified destination.

The triggering conditions of a rule are related by the logic AND relation. For example, if you set PropertyValueFilter=true and PropertyTimestampFilter=true, the rule to remove duplicate messages is triggered only when both of the conditions are met.
