Block 2 shows the authorized edge device details include name, model, MAC ID and EUI ID. The copy button helps to copy / paste the details through clipboard.

Block 3 shows the Fogwing IoThub generated Client ID and Username which are required to make any MQTT client connection from the edge devices.

Block 4 shows the sample data in JSON format. This sample data also includes your edge device EUI and Client ID for message level authorization. Without EUI and Client ID, message will not be processed by Fogwing IoThub.

Please note that Fogwing IoThub will support only JSON format device messages. It is responsibility of the device to form the JSON format and send to IoThub over MQTT or APIs.

Note: By default, TLS/SSL is enabled for IoT hub Access. This is to ensure 128 bit secure encryption channel.
