The configuration view contains the possibility to set a global, environment-wide parent asset, which is used for asset creation. This asset is used as a parent asset for all assets which are created by IoT Extension. In case a parent asset is defined on a mapping rule specifically it has higher priority over the globally defined parent asset.


Mapping rules

To add a new global asset parent, proceed with the following steps:

  1. Select the asset from the drop down menu.
  2. Click "Save".

The asset will be saved and displayed in the "Current Global Parent Asset" section on the right.

If you choose a new asset and save the same, the system will overwrite the existing asset and the newly saved asset will be displayed in the "Current Global Parent Asset".

Creation of asset types for child asset types can be optionally be set as independent from the parent asset type.

Device Mapping

The default view of the device mapping can be set to either the “Group view” or “All devices”. In case the quotas are exceeded, they are highlighted in red.
