Managing Pelion Device Management devices

Device Management allows lifelong management of deployed devices. This chapter covers the following topics:

Managing deployed devices

This section describes the ways you can interact with deployed devices through the Device Management services.

It begins by describing the main device states: onboarding, registered and degregistered. It then discusses device attributes and filters and how to use them. Devices have a number of built-in attributes: information that the device provides to Device Management, such as manufacturer, serial number, and model. Custom attributes allow you to create fine-grained filters. You can filter devices by both built-in and custom attributes.

Following is an explanation of suspending and resuming connectivity to devices.

There is an introduction to the concept of device groups, their creation, and their management. There are tutorials for both the Device Management Portal and APIs.

Lastly, the section discusses the device event log, which stores all important events in a device’s lifetime, such as registration date and all firmware updates. You can see all device events through Device Management Portal or the APIs.

Resource management tutorial

This tutorial shows you how to manage your device’s resources in Device Management Portal. It demonstrates how to view device details, as well as read from and write to the exposed resources on the device.

This chapter focuses on device management actions. For firmware management, see Updating device firmware.
