Assets

Introduction

Thingsboard support following asset management features using Web UI and REST API.

Adding and delete asset

Tenant administrators can register new assets or delete them from Thingsboard. To add a new asset group, click the plus icon in the upper right corner. Enter the name for the new asset group, set up the sharing configuration, and click Add.

To delete the asset group, click the trash can icon next to the asset and confirm it in the dialog box.

Asset ID

Tenant administrators and customer users can copy the asset ID to the clipboard. Open an asset group, then click the asset name to open its details. There, click the “Copy Asset ID” button.

Asset attributes

Tenant administrators and customer users are able to manage asset server-side attributes. First, you should click on the asset to open its details. Then, go to attributes tab and, by checking the box next to asset attribute, you can delete it or display it on a widget.

Asset alarms

Tenant administrators and customer users are able to browse asset alarms. To configure an alarm, you should create relations from asset to the device, add an alarm rule and trigger the alarm via terminal. After these actions, you can see the triggered alarm in the asset details.

Asset events

Tenant administrators and customer users can browse events related to a particular asset using the Events tab. Events help to track each message to see what happened to an asset.
Error event displays major problems that could affect asset’s work.
Lifecycle event displays when the asset was created and if it was successful.
Statistics event displays how many messages were proceeded and how many errors were there. Raw data event is using while debugging.

Documentation dedicated to events is coming soon.
