Step 5 - provisioning your devices

This page describes how to add devices to your ThingPark Enterprise All-in-One.

Provisioning devices one by one

The below example assumes a device using the Over-the-Air Activation (OTAA) mode.

  • On Devices / Create tab of the left panel, fill the form and click Save when finished:

  • From the Devices / List tab of the left panel, your device will appear in the list.

    • The device is created in "Initialization" state (orange status), this means that the device has not yet been activated in the network.
    • DevEUI is displayed, but the DevAddr not yet assigned for the OTAA device. This DevAddr assignment will only happen when the device sends its first Join-Request message.
  • To update the list, you can use the browser's refresh button, or press <F5>.

  • Once the device transmits its Join-Request message and successfully completes its network registration, your list is updated:

    • the device is connected (green status).
    • last uplink gets a timestamp.
    • DevAddr is now assigned by the network.
    • FCntUp represents the uplink counter.
    • Other RF metrics are displayed: SNR, SF ...

Provisioning devices in bulk (device import)

You can also use the bulk-import feature to import multiple devices in one click.

  • Follow the "SAMPLE FILE" link to understand the csv format.

  • Follow the "MODEL LISTS" link to find the "Profile ID" that corresponds to your device profile.

  • Create a csv (comma separated value) file, you should have something like this at the end (OTAA and ABP device sample) :

     CREATE_OTAA,70B3D53260001A75,,LORA_GenericA.1.0.2a_ETSI_Rx2-SF12,,31FD21B72E9CF9F861CF27450D4160E6,,device_1
    CREATE_ABP,000000000539B181,0539B180,LORA_GenericA.1.0.2c_ETSI,2B7E151628AED2A6ABF7158809CF4F3C,2B7E151628AED2A6ABF7158809CF4F3C,,device_2
  • Save the file in utf8 format when using a simple text editor.

  • Click on the to open the import dialog box and select your file:

  • Click IMPORT.

  • When everything is done, and you have no error, you can directly return to the device list and start working with your devices.

  • In case of errors, the user interface displays a page describing each error, ordered by line number.

  • You must correct the erroneous lines before re-importing the file. Note that you must only re-import the devices that were not successfully imported in the previous attempt.
