Release 2.18.0

This version was deployed to element-iot.com on 2020-05-27 at 17:00 CEST

New features

External systems and output drivers

· available upon request · experimental

Output drivers are processes that receive or collect data in ELEMENT IoT and stream them out to External Systems.

We're launching this feature with 2 output drivers:

  • Publish to MQTT - publish either readings or packets to an MQTT broker, defined in an MQTT external system
  • Scheduled reading export - Export readings automatically to an external file system. Matching to this, we ship an external system that connects to a server via SFTP.

CRUD API for packets

· available upon request

A new optional API has been added to allow adding, updating or deleting packets to and from devices.

Limits

Quotas, feature flags and rate limits can be configured per-mandate.

For every resource that can be created in an ELEMENT IoT mandate, there is a quota that can be used to limit the total amount that can exist at the same time.

There are also 3 new rate limits that protect from API clients overloading the system:

  • Total API requests - quickly limit the frequency of all API requests
  • WebSocket API connection opens - limit how often a new WebSocket connection can be opened
  • Rule Emails - limit how often rules can send emails

These rate limits can also be configured globally.

For quotas and rate limits in mandates, emails can be sent to a configurable address whenever the limit is reached.

New device statistics

3 new statistics are collected and displayed in folders:

  • missed up frames (LoRaWAN only) - how many up frames are missing in the last 10 up frames, this is determined by checking for gaps between the frame counters
  • last packet forwarder ping (GMS only) - how long ago the packet forwarder of a gateway communicated with the LNS
  • last probe ping (GMS only) - how long ago the probe (gateway agent process) communicated with ELEMENT IoT

Multicast groups

· available upon request · experimental

The new ELEMENT LNS update features LoRaWAN multicast groups, allowing an application to broadcast down frames to multiple devices efficiently.

ELEMENT IoT integrates this new feature by allowing to set up a special folder that is linked to a new type of ELEMENT LNS Interface: "Multicast".

Once the multicast interface is set up, LoRaWAN devices can be added to the linked folder. These devices will now receive all down frames that are sent as an action from the multicast interface.

"available upon request"?

New features marked with available upon request are not available by default.

For SaaS customers (for example if you're using element-iot.com), they have to be enabled with the limits feature.

On-premise customers need additional licenses that enable these features

Enhancements

New features

Autocomplete

Everywhere filters and expressions can be used, a new dialog window is used to enter code.

In this window, autocompletition is available for the entire data structure.

Most of the filters will also supply an "Examples" tab with useful code snippets.

Rules version 2

Conditions and timeout expressions in rules with version 2 now use AbacusSql instead of Abacus. This has 2 advantages:

  1. Autocomplete for the data structure is available
  2. Many useful functions that are only available in AbacusSql can now be used in rules

To use the new version, old rules must be upgraded manually, since they might need slightly different expressions.

New rules will always use version 2.

Release 2.10.0

This version was deployed to element-iot.com on 2019-05-09 at 13:40:00 CEST

Important note

Our map hosting provider is migrating to a new URL system which includes a new API endpoint.

Action on your behalf is required if you have a strict HTTP forward proxy with a whitelist.

If that is the case, you'll need to allow MapTiler's new domain, api.maptiler.com.

This change becomes necessary either

  • when you upgrade to ELEMENT IoT 2.10

or

  • after June 15th, when MapTiler starts redirecting all requests to the new domain.

Read more about this change in MapTiler's blog post.

  • When deleting devices, their interfaces are disabled during the deletion so no new packets or actions are added to them.

Bug fixes

  • Packet histogram not being stacked was fixed
  • Fixed crashes that could appear for users with the user role
  • Fixed filter in device map-layers when using special characters

Release 2.8.0

This version was deployed to element-iot.com on 2019-01-15 at 15:30:00 CET

New features

  • New Driver: Sigfox
  • Redesigned device settings

Device settings have been split into sections for general settings, location, one section for each profile and one section for each interface. Additionally, there is a maintenance section where you can delete the device or parse its packets again.

  • Device location settings now feature a fullsized map which shows the locations of the other devices in the same folder which makes it easier if you want to position the devices in relation to each other
  • Helpful dialogs prevent you from losing changes when accidentally clicking on a link that would leave the device settings

We made this UI refactor because we needed to make sure the interface mutations are atomic, that means that the entry in the database is only there if it was successfully created in the drivers backend and also that it will not try to create interfaces in driver backends when other validations on the input data was failing.

Enhancements

  • Further improved stability of the driver system

Release 2.3.0

This version was deployed to element-iot.com on 2018-05-14 at 11:30 CEST

New Features

Profiles

With profiles, devices and folders can now carry custom metadata. In a profile, fields are defined with a name, a datatype and optional constraints (required field, regular expression, min/max).

Once a profile is added to a device or a folder, the fields that are defined in the profile appear in the form.

Examples for useful profiles:

  • Internal tracking ID in your inventory software
  • Calibration data that can be used in parsers
  • Warning and critical thresholds that can be used in rules
  • Nominal packet interval to be used in time-based rules

The metadata is available in parsers and rules, under the fields key in a device.

With folders, profiles can also enforce a tree structure. This is a feature that is in beta and we'll continue to work on it to make the user experience better.

Time

-based rules

With time-based rules, you have more possibilities to monitor your devices:

  • Send a notification if no packet was received since 30 minutes
  • Only send failure notifications if a problem persists, for example:
  • Door was left open for more than 10 minutes
  • CPU temperature was critical for more than 30 seconds
  • Parking space is occupied for more than the maximum allowed time

To make use of this new type of rule, set "Execute action when ..." to "... after timer times out". Doing this will change the form:

  • Duration of timer contains the time in seconds after which the action will be executed
  • Start condition is the condition to start the timer
  • Abort condition is the condition that aborts the timer

Gateway management v2

  • Dashboard was redone
  • Added more actions, for example (depends on gateway make and model):
  • Packetforwarder configuration
  • Gateway softwareupgrade

CSV Export

You can now download a CSV export on these pages:

  • Readings in folder (in list mode)
  • Devices in a folder (also exports its interfaces)
  • User list

The CSV files are exported with UTF-8 encoding, , separator and . decimal point. If importing with excel, be sure to apply these settings, otherwise excel will fail applying number formats.

Pagination for packets and readings

Where before you could only access the 50 newest packets and readings, you can view older data in the packets view and in the list mode of the readings view.

If you export a CSV, it will export the items from the page you're on.

Statistics API

For platform administrators, we offer a statistics API that can be used to generate billing reports. Find out more about it in the billing statistics documentation.

Other things

  • Convenience buttons in driver list for restart, disable, enable

Release 1.3.0
