Manage Devices

Let's use the Golioth Console to create a new device.

Golioth Console device view

In the center at the top of the console widow the currently selected project is shown. On the left sidebar we can use the ManagementDevices option to list this project's devices. Here we see the device that was created by the quickstart wizard.

  • Click the Create button in the upper right to create a new device.

    Dialog for creating new devices

  • Enter a Name and click save to create the device.

note

There are three optional values that we are not setting for this example

  • Tags: Group different types of devices together with your project
  • Blueprints: A designator used to identify device types for Over-the-Air updates (OTA)
  • Hardware ID: A unique hardware ID that you can choose to set to meet your project's needs (MAC address, serial number, etc.)

Before your newly created device can communicate with the Golioth Cloud it will need to be assigned credentials using the device authorization process.
