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 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.

Dialog for creating new devices

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.
