CC2650STK: Cloud Settings for the IBM IOT platform for BlueMix Free

Part Number: CC2650STK

Hi

I want to connect my CC2650SDK SensorTag ( and my CC1350SDK SensorTag) to my IBM BlueMixFree account.

How do I populate the data/credentials in the cloud setting dialog ?

I am using SensorTag v5.4.0 Build 47 on Android.

Thanks

Peter

    Hi Chen

    Thanks, but I was aware of these documents. Also, they refer to an outdated SensorTag app.

    I tried to use these instructions but as soon as I activate the cloud upload ( with the slider button) that app window closes and I get back to the

    main screen. Then the SensorTag will not be listed anymore and I have to restart the SensorTag as well. This doesn't happen as long as I use the IBM IoT Quickstart default.

    Also there is another problem: the cloud settings seem to be shared across different devices, so I can't set a separate deviceID for each device.

    Thanks

    Hi Peter,

    I have reached out to our iOS developer for a comment.

    Hi Joaqim

    Thanks, although I am on Android but possibly the solution is similar ....

    Hi,

    It's the same developer :) Kinda software ninja.. I'm still waiting for a response though.

    Hi,

    I am still waiting for a response. However, reviewing your post I got curious at the statement:  "This doesn't happen as long as I use the IBM IoT Quickstart default." 

    I am not certain the out of box software supports use cases beyond the IoT quickstart.

    Hi Joaqim

    Here is a screenshot:

    as you can see, the software is meant to support the IoT platform. Also , in the meantime I checked the params (credentials) with a Java MQTT client so I am quite sure they are correct.

    I think the app has a bug as it crashes as soon as I activate the cloud upload.

    Thanks

    Peter,

    What is the difference between "IBM IoT Quickstart default" and what you are trying to do? The credentials?

    Hi Joaqim

    IoT Quickstart is a no-registration service provided by IBM. The only thing you can do with this is to validate that your device can send data to the IBM cloud platform (via MQTT). IoT Platform requires registration and selection of a (possibly free) plan. This allows you to add a database, build a GUI (for example with node-red) and have a continuous integration toolchain, amongst many other options.

    So to do anything useful with TI SensorTags , this is what you need. As opposed to the IoT Quickstart setting, you must provide your credentials before you can use IoT Platform, as I have shown in the screenshot.

    Thanks

    Hi Peter,

    Understood. This seem to work fine with iOS so it might be an Android bug, which would also explain why it crashes. Would you be able to test on an iOS device as well?

    Regards, Joakim
