Assign required roles

Example scenario

A simulated pump is to be onboarded to Insights Hub. It is therefore necessary to assign the "Devicemanagement User" role to the profile. This enables you to use the built-in Device Simulator.


The user must have the role “mdsp:core:mcie:admin” to perform this action.


To assign the "Devicemanagement User" role for using the built-in Device Simulator.


To get the "Devicemanagement User" role, proceed as follows:

  1. Open MindConnect IoT Extension from the Insights Hub Launchpad.
  2. Click the main navigator in the upper right corner and select the "Administration" application as shown below: Home page
  3. Expand the “Account” menu from the navigator and click the “Users” option.
  4. Add the "Devicemanagement User" role to the user account and click "Apply". Device management


You have successfully assigned the "Devicemangement User" role to the user profile. You are now able to access the Device Simulator and work on simulated devices.
