Important notices

Technical documentation available online

All technical documentation for Managed IoT Cloud, including API specifications, Release notes and Getting Started Guides, are available online:


Set limitations per domain - API only

This API enables an administrator with root access to set limitations per domain in terms of

  • Number of Thing Types for a domain
  • Number of Things for a domain
  • Number of Users for a domain

When adding, updating or moving an item, a check will be done to ensure no limit is exceeded. This includes checking the domain tree upwards to the root domain.

This enables control of resources and costs for each domain level and can be used e.g. in packaging various end customer offerings.

Advanced Permission - Allow /deny access to App Board - Beta release API endpoint

We now introduce a feature to toggle the access to App Board. It is part of the new Advanced Permission structure, meaning you define a role with deny App Board access and give this role to the users that not shall have App Board access. This can be used e.g. when a custom application is developed for end users and you want to deny access to App Board and direct the users to the custom app only. A user trying to login to App Board will get a message that the user is not allowed to use this application (App Board).

The Beta release means you can start piloting this functionality, but there may be changes/updates to the API before it is fully launched.

Additional IoT end-point

Google, Apple and Mozilla have announced that, starting October 2018, they will deprecate trust in all Symantec root certificate authorities (CAs), including the VeriSign Class 3 Public Primary G5 root CA used to sign AWS IoT Core server certificates.

The decision to no longer include these CA certificates will disrupt mobile and web applications that rely on the certificate trust stores provided by their mobile operating systems or browsers.

AWS IoT now provides an additional AWS IoT end-point that present Amazon Trust Services (ATS) signed server certificates. In order to use the new ATS CA you will have to change the IoT end-point url in your mobile or web application to point to the new ATS url.

The Manifest will contain two URLs: IotEndpoint and IotEndpointATS. The current endpoint called IoTEndpoint in the manifest can still be used by Things though AWS will keep the current IoT endpoint serving VeriSign CA until further notice.

Minor improvements and corrections

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

  • Enhanced sorting on virtual resources in the Things list in All Things Dashboard. If no data exists for the resource, sorting will be disabled for that resource.
  • Fixed issue in Analyze export function causing repeated data in the export file when exporting non-aggregated data.
  • Fixed issue with new resources not being identified under certain circumstances.
  • Fixed issue in file browser when searching and no Thing was found.
