Console Updates- Second rx window, custom JSON messages

· 3 min read

In this release we provide support for a second receive window, a number of UI improvements, as well as a beta feature that allows users customize JSON messages sent to Integrations.

Features and Updates

  • Included a second receive window for devices aligned with LoRaWAN spec.
  • Increased Data Credit visibility: total for Organization prominently displayed, as well as on specific device page.
  • Group import capability supports adding an additional labelID column in the CSV file for imports.
  • Labels can be quickly swapped from one to another from the quick action menu. For example, if Labels were defined for location (SF, LA), and a device moved from SF to LA, users could easily swap these location Labels for devices. This same feature could be used to define different customers, POC vs. production devices, etc.
  • Included pause/resume device transfer on Device index page quick action menu.
  • Significantly improved uplink speed by caching devices instead of needing to query DB each time.
  • Beta - JSON Message Templates: provide users the ability to customize the JSON message sent to HTTP, MQTT or AWS IoT Integrations. This is a beta feature and we expect only users familiar with templating to try this feature. More info about the logic-less Mustache templating we're using here.

The team’s focus in the coming weeks (usual disclaimers apply):

  • Add manager role: this would be an operational role that is similar to an Administrator without certain capabilities including the ability to manage Data Credits, users, or Organizations.
  • Provide email alerting for a number of conditions related to devices and integrations.
  • Include support for LoRaWAN adaptive data rate (ADR).
  • Providing more information related to LoRaWAN commands in the Event log.
  • Release Cargo asset tracking eval tool as open source.
  • Release Console and its backend network server and blockchain components (Router) as open source
