Features

Debugger for Thing communications and Events

A new “Developer Tools” menu item has been added to Settings in App Board. Clicking this item will open a new browser tab containing a live feed of Thing communication and system Events (such as Rule executions). This is helpful, for example, when connecting a Thing for the first time, or when troubleshooting various aspects of the communication behavior and the platform configuration.

By default, the debugger will display messages from the Event-topic, which can be filtered using the toggles in the left hand side menu.

In addition to this, the drop down in the menu can be used to add communication related to specific Thing(s) to the feed.

This is the first release of the Developer Tools and Debugger. Feedback and comments are more than welcome – please use the email link in the Debugger!

Updated look and feel for the Gauge widget in App Board

The Gauge widget in App Board has an updated look and feel (as well as updated technology under the hood).

The available settings and capabilities of the widget are unchanged for the time being.

Removed “known limitation” from Permissions

A previous “known limitation” of Permissions was that the Event API REALTIME action was not accessible for users without a System Role assigned. This limitation is now removed, and the documentation has been updated accordingly.

Minor improvements and corrections

Minor enhancements and bug fixes are delivered by the new release, including:

  • A new mechanism for sending emails from the Managed IoT Cloud platform has been implemented, providing improved scalability and robustness

Features

Support for replacement of SIM and physical devices communicating through IoT Gateway

For devices communicating through IoT Gateway, we now enable support for replacement of the SIM card and the physical device while keeping the data history from the former device. If the SIM card and/or the device is replaced, it is now possible to update the referring IMSI and/or IMEI on the corresponding Thing in MIC in order to keep the history of the former device sensor data observations. The typical use case is a device being broken in the field and being replaced with a new one where you want to keep the history of the connected sensor data.

Should you instead want to leave the history with the old MIC Thing, just create a new MIC Thing for the new device and it will have no history.

Minor improvements and corrections

Minor enhancements and bug fixes are delivered by the new release, including:

  • Eased validation on special characters for username in App Board. We now allow UTF-8 encoded characters in the username, e.g. åÅäÄöÖ.
  • Fixed an issue in edit transform in App Board (transforms are available for customers using IoT GW).
  • The refresh token expiration time has been changed from 30 to 7 days.
  • Fixed an issue where nested resources where typed wrongly when not supplying the type for already typed and reported nested resources.
  • Fixed an issue when assigning a role to a pending user in App Board.
  • Fixed an issue where the supplied timestamp using backdated observations option 1 (topic $aws/things//shadow/update) where not taken into consideration when indexing the observation.
