Adding assets to projects - AWS IoT SiteWise Monitor

Adding assets to projects

As a portal administrator, you decide how to assign your AWS IoT SiteWise assets to projects. You give access to users at the project level, so you should group related assets into projects that will have a common set of viewers.

Note

You can only add assets to a project if you're a portal administrator. Project owners and viewers can explore the assets in the projects to which they have access, but can't add assets to the project.

You can add assets to an existing project or you can create a project for the chosen assets.

Adding assets to a new project

  1. In the navigation bar, choose the Assets icon.

    
    The "Assets" icon in the navigation bar.
  2. (Optional) Choose a project in the projects drop-down list to show only assets from a specific project.

    
          The "Assets" page, with the projects drop-down list called out.
  3. Choose an asset in the Assets hierarchy, and then choose Add asset to project.

    
          The "Assets" page with the asset hierarchy and "Add assets to project"
            highlighted.
    Note

    You can add only a single node hierarchy (an asset and all assets that are subordinate to that asset) to a project. To create a dashboard to compare two assets that are children of a common parent asset, add that common parent to the project.

  4. In the Add assets to project dialog box, choose Create new project, then choose Next.

    
          Add assets to project dialog, step 1 of 2.
  5. In Project name, enter a name for your project. If you plan to create multiple projects, each with a distinct set of assets, choose a descriptive name.

    
          Add assets to project dialog, step 2 of 2.
  6. In Project description, enter a description of the project and its contents.

    You can add project owners after you create the project.

    The Create new project dialog box closes, and the new project's page opens.
