Let's use the Golioth Console to create a new device.
In the center at the top of the console window the currently selected project is shown. On the left sidebar we can use the Devices option to list this project's devices. Here we see the device that was created by the quickstart wizard.
Create a new device
Click the Create button in the upper right to create a new device.
1. Device name
Enter a name for your device
2. Tags, Blueprints, and hardware ID
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.)
3. Generate Credentials
By default, a PSK-ID and PSK will be automatically generated for this device. If you wish to set these manually, you may choose that option from the dropdown menu.
New device summary
After clicking save, your device is created and a new device summary is displayed.
Click the Go to Device Management button and continue to the next page of this guide.
