Try out the SAP Cloud Platform Internet of Things

What do you need to try out the Internet of Things (IoT Service)?

 

You need a free SAP Cloud Platform developer account (trial instance): Signing Up for a Developer Account.

Note: We recommend that you use the Firefox or Chrome Web Browser.

 

 

How to Subscribe to the IoT Service?

 

Enabling the IoT service

  1. Log on the SAP Cloud Platform cockpit:
  2. Go to the Services tab.
  3. Select the Internet of Things Service entry.

         

 

  1. Choose Enable.

  • A subscription of the IoT Service will be automatically assigned to your account. This subscription includes Remote Device Management Service (including IoT Cockpit) and Message Management Service capabilities.
  • The “IoT-User” role is automatically assigned to your user. The role is required to access the Internet of Things Services Cockpit.

 

Further documentation: https://help.hana.ondemand.com/iot > Getting Started > Enabling the Internet of Things Services

 

 

How to Get Started?

 

Accessing the IoT service cockpit

 

The Internet of Things services Cockpit allows you to register devices in a secure manner. Every device must have a certain device type which is specified by its supported message types. You can define both types in the IoT Cockpit as well.

 

  1. Choose Go to Service for the Internet of Things services subscription.
  2. The Internet of Things Service Cockpit is displayed.

Deploying Message Management Service

 

The deployment of the Message Management Service (MMS) is necessary to be able to send data from a device to your consumer account.

 

  1. Go to the Internet of Things Service Cockpit.
  2. Choose the Deploy Message Management Service tile which opens the MMS deployment tooling.

     /wp-content/uploads/2015/04/2016_07_17_21_40_46_996731.png

  1. Fill in the target consumer Account ID (pre-filled) from the SAP Cloud Platform Cockpit, and enter your User Name (pre-filled) and Password.

Further documentation: https://help.hana.ondemand.com/iot > Getting Started > Deploying the Message Management Service (MMS)

 

You can now start creating Message Types, Device Types and Devices in the Internet of Things Services Cockpit and send data from a device. The following section describes an example.

 

How to connect my first device?

 

The Starter Kit for the SAP Cloud Platform IoT Services  includes a documentation, and code snippets, which provide a complete end-to-end example of how to use the IoT services. You will learn how to enable the services as well as how to send messages and how to receive push messages. Moreover, a sample data consumption UI is provided. Further tutorials and blogs can be found on our SAP Cloud Platform IoT Service Jump Page.

      Hello,

      I am trying IoT on HCP but I have some problems:

      -> I do not have the java application IotRDMS in the java applications dashboard. I have only the IoTservices IoTcockpit application

      -> When I try to deploy MMS, I have a message 409 or 403 when I enter my credentials.

      Could you help me ?

      Best regards

      Dear Emmanuel,

      can you check if you have stopped any existing JAVA application which is running in your trial account . and once the iotmms is running do not forget to assign role to your user.

      SAP HANA Cloud Platform Internet of Things (IoT) Services (BETA)

      I stopped my running JAVA application and tried and it worked fine for me .,

      Hi,

      is it possible to analyse the incoming data directly?

      E.g. if the temperature is to high -> send an service technican

      Or is it necessary to poll the data with an external application and trigger events from outside?

      Can i see the sources somewhere?

      Regards

      Tobias

      Hi Tobias,

      Currently you need to work on the data directly. An example how to consume the data is described in the Starter Kit for the SAP HANA Cloud Platform Internet of Things (IoT) Services. There you will find even a sample Java Application for the consumption of the acquired data (Basic Consumption and User Interface Alternatives).

      Hi Michael,

      Good blog: Thank you.

      I have problems with github part. I do not know how to implement the chapter " Code snippets for IoT Devices" with Python files.

      Is there any place where I could find more detailed instruction how to cope with github and the files? A kind of step-by-step instruction.

      Best regards

      Hello Beata,

      You can use your web browser to go to the GitHub pages at SAP/iot-starterkit · GitHub. If you are not familiar with a git IDE or command line client - you may either want to use the "Download ZIP" button for the whole repository content or follow the links (starting with src) in the upper section till you finally reach the code snippets or the 2 .py files (program and config) of an integrated example.

      In addition to code for a Raspberry Pi there is an integrated example (simulating an IoT Device) for usage on your PC or Mac that you may want to start with. To use it, just install Python (e.g. from Welcome to Python.org) and urllib3 (e.g. with the pip package manager that comes with the Python installation: pip install urllib3).

      The integrated example (that makes use of the listed code snippets) shows you how the APIs for interacting with the HCP IoT Services are used. If you are more comfortable with e.g. Java, just have a look at which GET / POST requests via https are made - and do the same with Java. Hope that helps.

      best regards and feel free to get back to us with further questions or feedback

      Hello Venkatesh,

      please ensure about two points:

      - (if you are on Trial) you have assigned your user ID 'pXXX' to IoT-User role and not your account ID 'pXXXtrial'
      - you start with a new browser session (role assignment takes an effect with new session only)

      Hi All,

      I was able to configure all details. Unfortunately when I want to simulate the device via the iot_starterkit_desktop.py I receive the following error:

      "Problem decoding the message {"msg":"Error. Device 0d8ef208-823a-4a45-8b3a-b6bf9

      2c6f4d7 not found in registry."} retrieved with poll_from_hcp()! Can and will co

      ntinue though."

      I checked the device ID as well as the OAUTH token several times. I even recreated another device. Unfortunately it does not work either. Can anybody help??

      Thanks and best regards

      Ralf Ackermann

      Hello Helmut,

      can you please print out the raw message that causes this (by adding a print statement in the Python code).

      This happens in the "poll for messages that may have been pushed to the device" part - that starts immediately with the program start - when there have been no such pushed messages yet and there has been no "upstream" data POST yet. Please

      • either start sending data upstream (by moving the slider to 100) or
      • sending a message to the device with the other Python example (the one for push)

      and check whether the "warning" disappears. The root cause for it will be fixed.

      Author's profile photo Helmut Grimm
      Helmut Grimm

      Hi Ralf,

      thank you so much for the immediate reply. I tried your proposed solution but the warning unfortunately does not disappear.

      I'm not a Python guru but I found the print statement (actually there are a lot 🙂 ). The error message looks now like that:

      "poll_from_hcp():404

      Problem decoding the message {"msg":"Error. Device 5419f2ff-0e07-450e-9915-951f0

      e9f4254 not found in registry."} retrieved with poll_from_hcp()! Can and will co

      ntinue though."

      Am I on the right paths?

      Hi Helmut,

      I had exactly the same problem. Cause was wrong entries in config.py for the message type ID's

      It should be something like

      message_type_id_From_device='1'

      message_type_id_To_device='2'

      Hope this helps

      Yet, it seems the table used for storing messages (and which follows the naming conventiion T_IOT_<DeviceTypeID>_<MessageTypeID>) are not created.

      Am I missing something?

      Hello Guillaume,

      a table T_IOT_<device_type_id>_<message_type_id> will be only created after you sent some data to MMS on behalf of the respective Device. You may use the sample HTTP client available in MMS or a python script from the Starter Kit, for example.

      Hopefully, it helps.

      I'm trying to get this example running in node.js using the websocket node.js library.

      I'm setting the OAuth token in the HTTP header:

      Authorization: Bearer 94f41e9d281f50927d1aa7dfcff0569

      Path is:

      /com.sap.iotservices.mms/v1/api/ws/data/ab32a5b8-7497-493f-8f99-f55616263598

      I've checked the device ID in the URL and the OAuth token is correct.

      When it makes the request the server is returning HTTP 200 response with HTML body rather than the HTTP 101 response expected by websocket. The HTML response contains JavaScript code to post a form to accounts.sap.com. So it seems like the token is wrong or the header isn't sent correctly. I've tried making raw HTTP request to the websocket address and manually putting in the web socket headers and it's getting the same result.

      I ran the Python websocket sample and I get the same result.

      The same code going against HTTP instead of websocket works fine so the problem seems to be specific to websocket interface.

      Dear All,

      I have an issue on the Rapsberry side. The only change I made in your code is about the sensor (I plug the temperature sensor).


      I have an error message saying that urllib3 is not able to send the data in https.

      It doesn't come form the network because I'm able to ping google from the raspberry but it could come  from the last release of urllib3 (I saw some forum post about issues with HTTPS).

      What do you think ?

      Hello Nicolas,

      let's check the connectivity first. Did you configure (in your config.py) a proxy or are you working without one?

      You may also try to use wget or a browser to check whether you can access the service URL. This will give you an authorization error (because you don't use the OAuth token this way) - but at least you can check whether the target URL is reachable.

      Finally, if you have a monitor connected to your Pi or login via ssh with X forwarding - you can also run the Python desktop simulator examples.

      Feel free to get back to me if you keep stuck.

      best regards

      I have written a python script for continuously polling the MMS for recieving input to device.

      If polling occurs then the MMS stalls, that is the PUSH does not work at all.

      Hi,

      I am using the trial account for HANA Cloud Platform. If I deploy the IoTMMS application, can I still deploy another JAVA application or does the IoTMMS application use up the single compute unit that HCP trial account comes with as default?

      Will there be a API to access the data like you did in your own application:

      /com.sap.iotservices.mms/v1/internal/http/app/tables/T_IOT_<deviceTypeId>_<messageTypeId>

      I can use the API for creating sensor data in my SAPUI5 WebIDE project, but if I follow the same approach for reading the tables (replace internal by api in the url and add the authentification header to the request), this will fail. I can do the request but the response is a logon html page.

      Hi Robert,

      Try changing the permissions of the iotmms Java application using the following:

      If I can remember correctly, this solved my problem.

      Hello Guillaume,

      just a remark. This is a very important configuration step which makes it possible to use MMS Push API (to send data to the device).

      Regards,

      Hi Robert,

      the internal API you described is used by MMS Cockpit only and provides a quick access to the data you sent from the devices. For consumption please use either the HCP Persistence API (an example is there in the IoT Starterter Kit) or XSJS/OData approach (all necessary steps are listed in post #3 by the follwoing link Using the SAP HCP IoT Services)

      Regards,

      Anton

      Hi Anton,

      This example is not working for me. My iotservices has a MAXDB database and I want to use the WebIDE for UI5 not WebIDE for HANA.

      Please can you make a API available for reading the table.

      Hi Robert,

      Thanks for your feedback. At the moment there are no plans to provide an additional consumption API but rely on the services (Persistence service, OData, XS etc) that are available in HCP already. For MaxDB, the best option would be to access the DB via JDBC and expose the respective service to your SAPUI5 application.

      Regards,

      Anton

      Do you know if this issue has this issue been resolved yet?

      I created a device 'RaspberryPi_1' and was trying to post messages to it via HTTP. I do get a 200 response. However, I don't see any table corressponding to my device either.

      Please look at the screen-shot I have attached.

      Hi,

      I'm already stuck on one of the first steps: creating a device type. It always fails with a generic "could not create device type" error. When looking into the network traffic, the backend service is also not providing any detailed error message.

      I verified that the IoT-User role is assigned to my user in the IoT Cockpit service and that IoT-MMS-User is assigned in the IoT MMS app.

      Any idea what's missing? Any help would be much appreciated.

      Thanks, Max

      Hi Shibaji,

      your request is forwarded to the HCP login page. That is why you get a 200 response. In order to be able to use the push API you need to enable Basic Auth for MMS and add the respective header to your HTTP request: https://github.com/SAP/iot-starterkit/tree/master/src/prerequisites/mms

      Regards,

      Hi,

      I guess you are using the sample consumption UI from the starter kit. Are you sure you set up the destinations to MMS and RDMS correctly in your HCP account: https://github.com/SAP/iot-starterkit/tree/master/src/apps/java/consumption

      The exception you get is fired from here: https://github.com/SAP/iot-starterkit/blob/master/src/apps/java/consumption/com.sap.iot.starterkit.ui/src/main/java/com/sap/iot/starterkit/ui/DataServlet.java

      This means that you request could not be forwarded to MMS. It would be interesting to see what the IOException contains.

      Regards,

      Thomas

      I have been able to test message sending via Send & Receive messages HTTP in HCP data services.

      Hi,

      I have setup the IOT service and was able to send messages from the client on the cockpit. I can create message types and devices as well. I tried to post a message to a device and the data was sent to the IOT_HTTP_PUSH table.

      Now when i tried to receive this message through a HTTP GET call as described in the demo. I keep getting a HTTP 401 error.

      So in "Authentication Configuration" in the cockpit for my iot java application i enabled the different kinds of authentication. And yet i still receive the same error. I did ofcourse append user id and password in authorization for HTTP GET call.

      How do i resolve this?

      Hi Chetan,

      a minor remark first. If your MMS is of version 2.4 or higher then setting a "Custom" Authentication Configuration is not necessary anymore.

      Regarding your issue. You speak here about getting messages pushed to the device, right? So, executing a HTTP GET against ../com.sap.iotservices.mms/v1/api/http/data/[device id]

      That endpoint is protected with OAuth. Use your device token (Bearer: token) to authenticate and not the username:password (Basic u:p).

      Anton

      Hi there!
      I'm using IOTMMS on the Europe HCP (not the trial HCP), but still there is a limit for devices (50!).
      By creating devices via RDMS, I managed to squeeze in 67, but after that I always receive the error message, saying the limit is 50.
      Why is the limit there and how can I deactivate it?

      Thanks and regards,
      Daniel

      P.S:
      The only information I can find is this:

      "Please be aware that the number of devices is limited (refer to section Device)."


      But under "Device" there is no mentioning of it...

      Hello,

      I got a problem with deploying the Message Management Service.

      The deployment of the Message Management Service in the Internet of Things Cockpit is successfully, but the java app iotmms is very long in the starting mode and is on failed after a few minutes.

      I'm using IoTMMS on the Europe HCP (not the trail HCP).

      Any idea what I did wrong?

      Thanks for your help,

      Felix

      Hello,

      I am trying to run this demo but I came across a weird problem.

      Problem occurs in HCP, with my trial account.
      There seems to be a problem when trying to access the service of IoT, within the Services available in HCP.
      Every time I try to access the service cockpit ("Go to service" link) I get 6 errors, such as "Could not load hierarchies", "Could not load data types" etc.
      Due to the above errors and as far as I understand, I am not able to add new message types or device types etc...

      Any ideas about a solution?

      Hello.

      Is it possible send data from SAPUI5 application to device without use Java? I saw starter kit but just found consuming using UI5.

      Sending data from device to HCP is working well and i can consume it using OData API in UI5 application.

      Sending data from IoT cockpit to device is working very well too, but now, i would like to send data from my UI5 application.

      Is it possible? How can i do it?

      I tried the code bellow but didn't work.

                                      var sUrl = "/destinations/iotmms/v1/api/http/push/MY_DEVICE_ID";
      			
                                    jQuery.ajax({
      				type: 'GET',
      				contentType: "application/json;charset=utf-8",
      				dataType: "json",
      				url: sUrl,
      				xhrFields: {
      					withCredentials: true
      				},
      				beforeSend: function(request) {
      					request.setRequestHeader('Authorization', 'Bearer MY_TOKEN');
      				},
      				error: function(jqXHR, textStatus, errorThrown) {
      					if (jqXHR.status !== 0) {
      						sap.m.MessageToast.show("[".concat(jqXHR.status, "] ", jqXHR.statusText, " ", jqXHR.responseText));
      					}
      				},
      				success: function(oData, textStatus, jqXHR) {
      					if (oData === null || oData === undefined) {
      						sap.m.MessageToast.show("[WARNING] Received a null or undefined response object");
      						return;
      					}
      				}
      			});

      Thanks and regards,

      Hello Guilherme,

      yes, you can do it since UI5 speaks JavaScript and HTTP. According to online documentation [1], you have to create and send the HTTP POST (and not HTTP GET) with the respective JSON body content (see example in the docu as well)

      Regards,
      Anton

      Hello Anton.

      I am sorry, i just copy and past the code here and forgot to change GET by POST.

      The correct code, using POST, i have been receiving response 403 using the code bellow.

      			var sUrl = "/destinations/iotmms/v1/api/http/push/c77dffb7-9........"
      			jQuery.ajax({
      				type: 'POST',
      				contentType: "application/json;charset=utf-8",
      				dataType: "json",
      				url: sUrl,
      				data: oData,
      				beforeSend: function(request) {
      					request.setRequestHeader('Authorization', 'Bearer f145cce.......');
      				},
      				error: fnError,
      				success: fnSuccess
      			});

      Thanks and regards,

      Guilherme

      It’s working fine now!

      Changed the authorization to basic, like bellow:

      Body:

      {
      “sender”:”IoT application”,
      “messageType”:”5266d8603d6″,
      “method”: “http”,
      “messages”:[{
      “estado”: “false”
      }]
      }

      ——

      Another question now. Will the OAuth access token expire automatically? Is there any way the device receive it automatically or just manually?

      Thanks and regars,

      Guilherme

      Hello Guilherme,

      yes, Push Service API is protected with both Basic and Oauth authentication types. I would guess, when using Oauth you were getting HTTP 403 Forbidden, because the device token was used to authenticate. This is wrong. There is a separate procedure of requesting a token for Push Services like APIs. Please, follow the online documentation [1].

      Regarding your last question - no there is no lifetime for a device token. If it has been lost or needs to be changed, the one could request for it from the IoT Cockpit [2]

      Hi All,

      I am facing the 401 Unauthorized response when trying to post data to the device

      URL : https://webidetesting566566-<mytrialaccount>trial.dispatcher.hanatrial.ondemand.com/iotmms/data/5749dadc-d077-410b-9444-6eabd631213a

      IOT.postData(

          sDeviceId, "sync", sMessageTypeId,

          oMessage,

         successCallBack,

         errorCallBack,

          {

              headers: {

                  "Authorization": "Bearer " + oAuthToken

              }

          }     

      );

      Where as IOT.pushData working without any issues.

      I have maintained the destination properly in HCP cockpit.

      when I am using the same auth token on the direct URL (other than destination) https://iotmms<mytiralaccount>trial.hanatrial.ondemand.com/com.sap.iotservices.mms/v1/api/http/data/5749dadc-d077-410b-9444-6eabd631213a

      in postman plugin POST call was successfull.

      Please advise where else the error would be.

      Regards

      Murthy

      Hello Murthy,

      please familiarise yourself with the Rules of Engagements [1] and especially #9 - Do not create multiple copies of the same question in different threads. You have already asked the same question in here [2]. Moreover, this particular blog does not describe Web IDE and Destinations setup.

      Hi Experts,

      Instead of using IoT service cockpit, is there an API for creating message types, device types and registering devices?

      Yes, please look up in the documentation [1] "Remote Device Management Service API"

      Hello friends.
      I signed up to the cloud platform and started a free trial, I want to use the iot service, but I can't find the service when I look at the services.
      Please help me.

      I wanted to use SAP Cloud Platform IoT Cockpit (HTTP or MQTT protocol) to connect and stream the data to cloud. I wanted to use IoT Freestyle template from SAP WebIDE to build the UI. To use this template I must have SAP Leonardo IoT license and access. I Could not find how to activate the SAP Leonardo IoT features in the Test account that I created.
