Usage

The Import Nodes form allows you to easily insert Nodes into the database. The syntax must be like a .csv one. The first row must contain the node fields and each one must be separated by a semicolon.

Fields format

Each field has its own format or acceptable values, so to insert a new node correctly, you must follow the next rules:

  • Name: The name of the node, it can't be empty;
  • Model: The ID of the model of the node, it is 0 if the node hasn't a model, otherwise you can find it in the "Add Device Wizard" window;

  • DevEUI: The Device EUI of the node, it is an hexadecimal value of 16 character length if the authentication is "OTAA" or "ABP", and 8 characther length if "Sigfox". If there is already a node with this DevEUI then it will be edited, so be careful of what you write in;
  • Auth: The authentication of the node, it can only have the values "OTAA", "ABP", "Sigfox";
  • AppKey: The Application Key of the node, it is an hexadecimal value of 32 character length. It is used only with the "OTAA" authentication, otherwise it can be left empty;
