Mass Remote Configuration of IoT Agents

Mass Remote Configuration of IoT Agents

October 9, 2020
TeamViewer IoT Documentation

The Mass Remote Configuration allows you to assign IoT Agent settings from one Edge Device to one or more other Edge Devices. For example, enabling the Edge Management on all your devices without connecting to them single-handedly.

Follow the 2 basic steps:

  1. Create a Settings Template.
  2. Assign the Settings Template to Edge Devices.

You also can edit existing Settings Templates and unassign or change groups or single Edge Devices.

What you will need

Make sure that you have prepared the following points:

  • Your TeamViewer credentials.
  • The edge device is connected to the internet.
  • All edge devices are set up with a TeamViewer IoT Agent (Version 2.9 or newer).

Create a Settings Template

  1. To log in to the IoT Management Console, open https://teamviewer-iot.com and use your TeamViewer account credentials.
  2. From the left menu select Settings Template.
  3. On the right side click Create Template.
  1. Type in a unique template name.
  2. Click to add a configuration. (When a configuration becomes superfluous click to remove it.)
  3. Adjust the configuration to your requirements.
  1. To finish click Create.

Assign the Settings Template to Edge Devices

  1. To log in to the IoT Management Console, open https://teamviewer-iot.com and use your TeamViewer account credentials.

  3. On the right side choose the Settings Template you want to assign to other Edge Devices. From the dropdown menu select Assign.
  1. In the popup select the groups or single Edge Devices which you want to receive the Settings Template.
  1. To send the Settings Template to the Edge Devices click Save.

Depending on the edge device performance, you need to allow some time for the Settings Template to assign to the device.

Upon assigning to a group, all eligible devices within the group will receive the template assignment as well.

Devices with unsupported IoT Agent Version as well as shared devices will be visible in the list, but you will receive an appropriate warning message.
