  • Hi @Nishant_KPIT, welcome to the MindSphere Community. We dont have a lot of AWS development information released yet, but it will follow in the coming weeks. While we are working to pull the information together, I could connect you to one of my colleagues to get a deepdive. 




  • I am new to Mindsphere community. We are working on project where we want onboard Printers in Mindsphere v3.0. However we are facing lack of documentation onboarding different type of devices. 

    Would it be possible to get any tutorial onboarding devices connected to Ethernet or WiFi having TCP/IP protocol

  • Hi ,


    Could you please let me know if how can write data to Mindsphere IoT Value plan without hardcoding data point ID. Is there a way we can navigate asset hierarchy and identify data point ID ?


    Project Background:


    For an app, we would like to create a asset structure dynamically in the MindSphere. (as asset structure might change depending on the deployed location ). I understand that we  can create city structure using Asset Management APIs and we will be doing this via mindapp which will be deployed in Operator plan. However data needs to be written to IoT Value plan from getaway  and one of the data source for gateway is OPC-UA server. Please see below.  We would like to write data to a specific hierarchy (where they belong) without remembering data point ID.  How can we do that?
