Connected Factory: how to connect a gateway RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm working with the Azure IoT Connected Factory solution accelerator and I'd like to understand what's needed to connect a gateway.

    From the documentation we have that…

    • The instructions to 'Deploy an edge gateway for the Connected Factory' : are missing -
      If you want to add a new gateway to the Connected Factory, please follow the instructions on this page: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/iot-suite/iot-suite-connected-factory-gateway-deployment
      As the previous link gets redirected to: What is Connected Factory IoT solution accelerator? -https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/iot-accelerators/iot-accelerators-connected-factory-features
    • Even the GitHub repo: 'iot-gateway-opc-ua' (https://github.com/Azure/iot-gateway-opc-ua) redirects to: 'iot-edge-opc-publisher' (https://github.com/Azure/iot-edge-opc-publisher)

    I'd appreciate any guidance on this.

    Best regards,

  • Hi Amparo, it seems like those docs were retired and the source you are quoting is outdated. However you could find the IoT hub Connection string here which you will need for this. Please read this if you haven't yet, and follow the instructions to create the edge gateway that are linked in this doc: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/iot-edge/iot-edge-as-gateway

  • Hi Alberto,

    First of all thank you for your quick reply.

    Yes, it was useful to get to the right documentation. So far I'm working with the Connected Factory using an OPC Publisher to ingest the telemetry data directly (with no Gateway in the middle), so actually haven't tried the Gateway scenario yet.

    I guess I should mark this question as answered and post new questions if needed when going back to the gateway scenario.
