Microsoft Azure IoT

Microsoft Azure IoT is a managed service from Microsoft that enables and manages bidirectional communication between Internet of things (IoT) devices.

Integrations and Connectors

AgilePoint NX integrates in these ways with Microsoft Azure IoT:

  • Activities in Process Builder
  • Access tokens

Activities in Process Builder

You can use out-of-the-box activities for Microsoft Azure IoT to execute actions in process-based apps.

An activity is a functional unit, or task, in a process-based app. Activities that integrate with a third-party system provide access to the API functionality for that system in a simple, point-and-click, form-entry format. This means that you can easily leverage APIs without writing code.

Process Activities for Microsoft Azure IoT

The following activities are available for Microsoft Azure IoT:

  • Get Device Information
  • Read Message from Device
  • Read Message from Event Hub
  • Register Device
  • Send Message to Device
  • Send Message to Event Hub

For more information, refer to the process activities for MS Azure IoT in Process Builder.

Access Tokens

You can create access tokens for Microsoft Azure IoT.

An access token is a secure object that stores an endpoint (usually a URL) and authentication credentials to connect to a service or technology. Often this is an external or third-party service, like Salesforce or SharePoint, but access tokens can also connect to an AgilePoint NX enviornment, local database, or other types of technologies. Once an access token is created, app designers can simply select and reuse it, rather than entering the credentials each time they are needed.

For more information, refer to Access Token for Microsoft Azure IoT.

Some information about third-party integrations is outside the scope of the AgilePoint NX Product Documentation. It is the responsibility of the vendors who create and maintain these technologies to provide this information. This includes specific business use cases and examples; explanations for third-party concepts; details about the data models and input and output data formats for third-party technologies; and various types of IDs, URL patterns, connection string formats, or other technical information that is specific to the third-party technologies.
