Creating asset

MindConnect IoT Extension works on the measured data and a connection between MindSphere assets. An asset can have properties that are time series data. To ingest time series data into MindSphere you need to create an asset.

Skip the following steps and continue with chapter MindConnect IoT Extension, if you have already created an asset in MindSphere. Otherwise please follow the instructions below. They will lead you through the process of creating an asset via MindSphere Asset Manager, using the process of onboarding a pump as an example scenario.

NOTE

It is also possible to create an asset via Asset Manager API.

The creation of an asset consists of three steps:

  1. Creating an aspect.

  2. Creating an asset type and using the previously defined aspect.

  3. Creating an asset based on the asset type.
