Appendix C: Managing Device Types

Device types are used to define the type of data your simulated IoT devices will send. The IoT Device Simulator console helps make it easier to manage your device types. With the console, you can view and edit your device types.

To view your device types, navigate to the IoT Device Simulator console. In the navigation pane, select Device Types. A list of all device types associated with your account will be displayed on the Device Types page.

To view the details of a specific device type, on the Device Types page, find the applicable device type and select Edit. This shows the device type definition details including the name, the visibility, the data topic, the data transmission duration and interval, and the message payload. To edit the device type, change the applicable values. You can also remove existing attributes from or add new attributes to the message payload. Select Save to save the changes or Cancel to abort the changes.
