Device Status Service


This service provides interfaces for managing databases of all installed software and health information of devices.


For accessing this service you need to have the respective roles listed in Device Status Service roles and scopes.


Device Health

The Device Status Service provides an interface to update and query the health of data sources and data points. It can also be used to report user defined forms of health information.

Software Inventory

The software inventory of a device includes the firmware and all other applications installed on the device. Applications could for example be separate processes for managing firmware and app updates.


The Device Status Service exposes its API for realizing the following tasks:

  • read and report the health status of devices
  • store and update information about software installed on devices

Example Scenario

The producer of a sensor wants to provide their customers with a simple way to check the configuration of their devices and see if they are running. They create an app with a graphical user interface, where the user can query the desired values. The device uses the Device Status Service to send status updates and the app displays the latest information as a status message, which says "OK"/"ERROR".
