Create a new device type


I want to create a new device type associated with a contract in order to register my devices.

Step-by-step guide

According your user rights in the backend, you'll be able to create a new device type following the steps below: 

  1. Go to Device type tab
  2. Click on New button in the top right corner
  3. Choose the group or sub-group in which you want to create the new device type
  4. Fill in the Device type information:
  • Name of your device type
  • Description of your device type
  • Set the Keep-alive value in minutes (optional)
  • Contract: you can associate multiple contracts to a device type
  • Alert e-mail: If a callback fails, an email will be sent to the address below so that you can take action to fix the problem.
  • Configure the downlink callback mode 
  • Configure the Payload display

A device type can be modified by clicking on the Edit button in the top right corner of its information page.

You can also create or edit a device type using API endpoints.
