Authorize Devices

To connect to the Golioth Cloud, we need to pass the newly created credentials to the hardware device.

Retrieving Device Credentials

Device details now includes device credentials

To access device credentials, select the Credentials tab from the device view in the Golioth Console. The PSK-ID and PSK (the Identity and the Pre Shared Key) are what your device needs to authenticate and connect to the Golioth Cloud. You can always return to this panel in the device details to retrieve these values.


When a device credential ID is automatically assigned it follows this format: GMT timestamp, the name of the device, and the name of the project. If you prefer shorter device IDs, you may want to choose the ID yourself. By convention, all device credential IDs will end with the @ symbol followed by the project name.

Congratulations, you're ready to move on to selecting hardware!
