Bulk firmware update
Firmware can now be updated by selecting multiple products, scheduling when to perform the update, and monitoring the entire progress.
R&D engineers will be able to upload new firmware versions, quickly test the update on a small set of products, and then rollout to all products. If necessary, massive firmware upgrading can also be done by service managers at technical assistance centers (TACs).
You can monitor the progress of the update and, in case of errors, retry the update only for the items that had problems.
The massive firmware update works with any IoT connector, and in particular, if you are using the AWS IoT Connector, you can leverage the AWS IoT Jobs service to update the firmware of your connected products.
Multiple selection improvement on thing list
The multiple selection in the thing list has been improved, and, In case you have visibility to many things, you can now also select them across pages in the list, preserving the selection even when changing pages. You can also decide to select everything, without scrolling through the entire list. The new multiple selection can be used for bulk tagging, or to perform a bulk firmware update.
Data exports with custom file name
In order to allow end users to download data in CSV format using a file name that clearly identifies the contents of the file, it is now possible to customize the name of data export files, even using placeholders used to dynamically calculate file names based on properties (e.g. sn123-temperatures.csv).
Data visibility by product activation date
When activating a product that has already been owned by another user, for instance, taking over an apartment with a connected boiler, the user will only be able to access their own data, preserving the privacy of the previous users.
On the contrary, the maintenance technicians will be able to access all data, even those present before the last activation.
