Configuring integration extension#

To enable communication and data flow between the Azure IoT Hub and Coiote DM platforms, you first need to integrate them using the dedicated extension module in Coiote DM. Follow the instruction below to learn how to do it.

Prerequisites#

  • An active IoT Hub with hub owner access permissions. Check here how to create a hub.
  • A Coiote DM user account with permissions to use the integration extension.
  • Optionally, an active Azure Blob Storage account.

Get the IoT Hub connection string#

  1. In your IoT Hub general view, go to Shared access policies:

    IoT Hub Shared access policies

  2. From the list of policies, select the iothubowner policy.

  3. Under Shared access keys, click the copy icon for the Connection string -- primary key to save the value.
