This is a quick start tutorial for IBM Watson IoT Platform for Mongoose OS.
This does not require any credentials and will set up the device for QuickStart cloud dashboard connectivity. With QuickStart dashboard, you will be able to send data from the device at a limited rate but device management (sending commands to the device) is not available.
Note: in order to make a button press to send events,
mos config-set rpc.mqtt.enable=false
set_button_handler()callback by changing topic name:
Save, upload to a device using
let topic = 'iot-2/evt/mos/fmt/json';
mos put fs/init.js, and reboot.
If you already have an IBM Cloud account and a cloud orgaization set up (you can register for a free trial here) you can use
mos to add a device to your org.
You will need to obtain app access credentials for
mos to use:
$ mos watson-iot-setup --watson-api-key a-bcdefgh-qwertyio --watson-api-auth-token "tokengoeshere" Using port /dev/ttyUSB0 Connecting to the device... esp8266 1AFE34A5930F running demo-c Org ID: bcdefgh Device ID: esp8266_A5930F Checking device type "mos"... Creating device "esp8266_A5930F"... Updating config: device.id = esp8266_A5930F watson.client_id = d:bcdefgh:mos:esp8266_A5930F watson.enable = true watson.host_name = bcdefgh.messaging.internetofthings.ibmcloud.com watson.token = SECRET Setting new configuration... Saving and rebooting...
Note: As with other flags, values can be specified as environment variables:
Invoked with no additional flags, as above,
mos will use device type
mos (will be created if necessary) and device ID derived from platform and the device's unique ID (usually MAC address) and a random auth token. Additional flags can be provided to override these defaults:
--watson-device-type- specifies device type
--watson-device-id- specifies device id
--watson-device-auth-token- specifies device auth token instead of generating a random one
--watson-api-host-name- use this host name for API calls instead of
--watson-messaging-host-name- use this host name for device connections instead of
