How TSI deal with device metadata,events and telemetry sent by the device.? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Scenario

    • Configured an IoT hub with simulated devices and a IoT hub listener. 
    • Incorporated the set up with Azure Time series insight. 
    • Device passes the data and TSI captures it.

    The problem is that the device also passes the device metadata. The requirement is that it should be captured and should be used in TSI. How TSI will deal with it is not clear. Is any documentation on this.? How does the TSI works with device meta data.? There will be many events needs to be passed to the IoT hub, How TSI handles it.? How to separate device metadata,events and telemetry sent by the device.?

  • Hi Manu,

    Reference data sets (metadata as you refer to) are joined at ingestion time if you configure and upload ref data to TSI. Here's a piece of documentation that explains this - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/time-series-insights/time-series-insights-add-reference-data-set. 

    There are other related docs in the same tree on our documentation page that talk about how TSI handles events as well.

    Hope this helps,
