Device and data management


From a conceptual view Device and Data Management is the reading and writing of data items called resources. A group of resources are called objects and these objects are reported to IMPACT IoT at registration. There are predefined objects for certain device management tasks such as Firmware, but for the most part the data objects can be defined by the Adapter developer to fit the needs of the protocol. To ensure ease of debugging it is recommended that string values are used for the resource’s types.

The format is:

So a simple example is:

Note: The value field is not required in all cases, for example when reading or when executing a task.
