Creating a device type

Creating and publishing a device type makes it available to all developers that want to store data in ARTIK Cloud using a client of this device type.

The first time a device type is created in an organization, an administrator must accept the ARTIK Cloud Terms and Conditions.

  • Click "Device Types" at the top of the page to view your device types. Click the "+ New Device Type" button.
  • Enter a display name and unique name (a valid example is given) for your device type. Note the characters <,>,&,'," are not allowed.
  • Click "Create Device Type." This takes you to a detailed view of your device types.
  • Click "+ New Manifest" to enter Simple Manifest creation.
  • Enter at least one field name, data type and unit. The characters <,>,&,'," are not allowed. The form auto-suggests standard fields and units as you type. You may also click the "Browse" links to see all the available options. Click "Save".
  • Click the "Device Actions" tab to optionally add Actions the device type is capable of receiving. As with the device fields, the form auto-suggests standard Actions as you type, or you may click "Browse" to see the Actions that are already available. Click "Save".
  • After you have entered all fields and Actions for your Simple Manifest, click the "Activate Manifest" button on the corresponding tab to enable your Simple Manifest.

Publishing a device type

Published device types must be associated with an organization. See Creating an organization.

  • Once your device type has a Manifest, you may want to publish the device to make it available to all ARTIK Cloud developers. By default, it has a status of "private".
  • To publish the device type, you must populate the Device Info page. Click the "Device Info" link to the left.
    ARTIK Cloud Developer Dashboard and My ARTIK Cloud
  • Add a description and choose at least one category and tag. Click "Save Changes".
  • You may now change the "private" status by clicking "Change" and selecting "Users of your applications" or "Everyone on the ARTIK Cloud platform".
    ARTIK Cloud Developer Dashboard and My ARTIK Cloud
  • After clicking "Save Changes", the status is changed to "published".

If you upgrade to a paid plan, you must limit who can use the device type.

Updating a device type

ARTIK Cloud Developer Dashboard and My ARTIK Cloud

  • You can update your device type Manifest by clicking the "Manifest" link to the left.
    ARTIK Cloud Developer Dashboard and My ARTIK Cloud
  • Click "+ New Version" to create a new Manifest.
    • Alternatively, click the arrow icon to upload a JSON snippet that defines the fields and Actions. ARTIK Cloud Developer Dashboard and My ARTIK Cloud
  • After updating, you will see a new Manifest version number and status for your device type.

Creating an organization

An organization is a way to manage billing, users, and metrics for your device types. When you first log in, you will not be a member of an organization. You must create your organization before publishing any device types.

  • When signed in, click your username at the top-right and select "View Organization".
  • Click "+ New Organization".
  • Fill in your company details and click "Save Changes".

As the sole user of your organization, you have an administrator role by default. In addition to managing payment information for the organization's pricing plan, administrators may invite users to join their organization with specific roles. If you do not plan to serve as an admin, another user invited to join the organization as an administrator can change your role later.

The applications and device types created by developers in your organization are made available to all members.

Managing your organization

As the organization grows, an administrator may invite more users to join the organization in one of four roles: administrator, developer, tester, and metrics.

The privileges for each role vary. Only administrators may change organization, billing, user, and pricing plan information. An administrator may grant more than one role to a user.

An ARTIK Cloud user can belong to one organization.

  • When signed in, click your username at the top-right and select "View Organization".
  • Click "Manage Users" in the left-hand menu. Note: You must have an administrator role.
  • Enter an email address, select a role, and click "Send Invitation".
    ARTIK Cloud Developer Dashboard and My ARTIK Cloud
  • Once the user accepts the invitation in their email inbox, they will appear in the users table.
    ARTIK Cloud Developer Dashboard and My ARTIK Cloud
  • You may change user role(s) in this table.

Changing your pricing plan

Your current pricing plan and data usage are displayed in the "Usage & Billing" section of the Dashboard. The default plan is Free.

ARTIK Cloud Developer Dashboard and My ARTIK Cloud

Depending on your organization, you may want to upgrade to a different plan. This page details the available pricing plans: Free, Small Business, and Enterprise.

  • Click "Usage & Billing" at the top of the page.
  • Click the "Upgrade" button underneath your current pricing plan. Select a new plan from the pulldown menu.
    ARTIK Cloud Developer Dashboard and My ARTIK Cloud
    • If you select the Small Business Plan, fill in and save your payment information. This is a pay-as-you-go plan with monthly billing.
    • If you select the Enterprise Plan, send us a message regarding your specific business needs. An Enterprise Plan is ideal if you have large scale deployments with a need for custom data retention period, an availability SLA, and enterprise support.

When switching to a paid plan, your organization's messages will begin counting toward the new plan at the start of the next day.

Using the Online Device Simulator

The Online Device Simulator simulates data output from your connected devices. You can use it to easily test a device type for which you don't have an actual device to generate data. This web-based tool is separate from the Command Line Device Simulator.

Simulated data generated by the Online Device Simulator will count toward your pricing plan.

  • On the left-hand side of the Devices page, click "Show Simulator".
  • The Online Device Simulator opens in the right sidebar. Click "Select A Device" to get started, or "Import Scenario" to load a saved JSON configuration.
  • Select a device and data field to simulate. Click "Next".
  • In the next window, define the data pattern and tiem interval for the simulated data. The data pattern can have one of four types:
    ARTIK Cloud Online Device Simulator
    • Random makes random selections from a comma-separated list of range of values.
    • Increment steps up to a maximum value, and can repeat with the maximum is reached.
    • Constant value outputs one value.
    • Cycle alternates between a comma-separated series of values.
  • Click "Start Simulation" when all data fields have been added.
    ARTIK Cloud Online Device Simulator
    • You can pause the simulation by clicking "Pause" in the banner that appears.
  • Data will be sent in real-time to ARTIK Cloud. You can see this reflected in the Charts and Logs sections.
