SAP Edge services without IoT Cockpit (IoT 4.0 - cloud)


I have a requirement where the client says that they do not want IoT Cockpit piece but they want the data from Sensor / Devices into SAP Edge services primarily for storage where this data will be polled from an external service and the information will be stored in a SAP Hana db using an XSJS service.

Although the architecture seems pretty unusual the client (SAP internal) says this will cut down the cost for small / medium customers.

The issue I am facing to implement this solution is that there is absolutely no literature which bypasses the IoT Cockpit piece. IoT Cockpit is needed for device and sensors onboarding, authentication and the Edge system management. The client is insisting on bypassing the onboarding flow and using basic authentication for the MQTT requests to Edge on premise system. One of the prerequisites for triggering a publish message from a device to SAP Edge services is generation of certificate in the IoT Cockpit.

It would be great to hear from experts on how to achieve this.

    Hi ,

    This is very good requirement actually .

    Did you try AWS IoT service ?? It provides alot of things pre-configured ( like serve, rest service,Oauth etc. )

    Not sure how to by pass the IoT Cockpit, but one way is to use WebID service .

    You create the same DB, structure and use SAP Web IDE service

    Thanks and Regards
