This guide describes how to install ThingsBoard Professional Edition from Azure Marketplace. Using this guide you will install BYOL version of the product. Basically, you get the license directly from ThingsBoard, Inc, but purchase corresponding server instances and infrastructure from Azure.
You will be navigated to the resource overview page. We should use this page to copy the external IP address of your instance. Please copy this IP address to a safe place. We will use it in our next steps.
As an example, on the image below, the IP address is highlighted and set to “188.8.131.52”
In order to activate your ThingsBoard instance you will need to get the license secret. ThingsBoard Licenses are managed by ThingsBoard License Portal.
Please save your license secret to a safe place. We will use them later in this guide.
Once you get the license secret, you should put it to the thingsboard configuration file.
Please use the official Azure guide on how to connect to Azure VM using SSH keys.
Open the file for editing using the following command:
sudo nano /etc/thingsboard/conf/thingsboard.conf
Locate the following configuration block:
# License secret obtained from ThingsBoard License Portal (https://license.thingsboard.io) # UNCOMMENT NEXT LINE AND PUT YOUR LICENSE SECRET: # export TB_LICENSE_SECRET=
and put your license secret. Please don’t forget to uncomment the export statement. See example below:
