Register a Single Device

To communicate with Oracle Internet of Things Cloud Service, every device that is connected to Oracle Internet of Things Cloud Service must be registered and then activated. All devices are registered as a Directly Connected Device (DCD). During activation, the device indicates support for indirect enrollment. A device indicating indirect enrollment capability is automatically changed from DCD to Gateway.

  1. Open the Oracle Internet of Things Cloud Service Management Console. The URL format to access the IoT management console is: <iot instance name>.<domain name>/ui. For example:
  2. Click the Menu (Menu icon) icon adjacent to the Oracle Internet of Things Cloud Service title on the Management Console.
  3. Click Devices.
  4. Click Registration.
  5. Click Register Single Device.
  6. Complete the optional and mandatory fields.


    If you leave the Activation Secret field blank, a value is auto-generated and displayed when the device registration is confirmed. You can enter your own Activation Secret value. Any additional information, such as Name, Description, and Metadata are optional, but can be useful as search criteria when managing your registered devices.
  7. Click Register.
  8. (Optional) Click Select Devices to Provision and select one or more indirectly connected devices to provision the gateway with the shared secret credentials of the selected devices.

    Indirectly connected devices that use controlled roaming can connect through a gateway only if the gateway has the shared secret credentials to activate the device.

  9. Enter a password in the File Protection Password field to encrypt the provisioning file that contains the configuration and credentials to activate your device.
  10. Enter the password again in the Confirm Password field.
  11. Click Download Provisioning File to download the provisioning file to your computer.
    The provisioning file is required to run your client.
  12. Click Finish.
  13. Click Management .
    The registered device is listed in the Management pane with a State value of Registered and Type value of Unknown.
