Projects Creation

Project Creation

To create a project, simply navigate to the Projects section from the side bar menu, and click on CREATE NEW PROJECT.

Project creation inputs

Huxon will ask for some details regarding your project and in particular:

  • Project Name: the name that identifies the project inside Huxon.

  • Azure IoT Central Application Url: the name of your Azure Central Application where your meaningful data is going to be published. Currently, Huxon does not handle the creation of an Azure Central Application for you. Inside this field, you have to type in the name of the application without the suffix.

  • Azure IoT Central API token: the SAS Builder Token (info on how to retrieve it in Microsoft Azure Central Token Section) that you can generate inside your Azure Central Application. This will be used by Huxon to create Device Templates and Devices inside ure Azure Central Application. Such devices act as proxies for the Virtual Sensor you will create inside the project.

  • Project Type: select your project type from 4 categories: Connected Health, Smart Building, Smart Industry or Other.

Project creation: Huxon automated steps

Once all the details are analyzed, Huxon will start creating all the necessary resources on your Microsoft Azure Subscription. From this point all the resources are managed by Huxon and should not be modified by the user to avoid unexpected behaviors.

When the resources are ready, Huxon will automatically update and open your new project.

Project ready

You are now ready to start creating your Virtual Sensors.

Microsoft Azure Central Token

The results of the Virtual Sensors algorithms deployed using Huxon are published to your Microsoft Central Application. You can create a new application, or use an existing one. To allow interaction between your Central application and Huxon, you need to provide a Token Builder during project creation. To create a Token Builder you have to:

  1. connect to your Central application

  2. on the left-side menu, under Security click on Permissions

  3. select API Tokens

  4. select New, define a Name and select App Builder as Role

  5. copy and store your token, as it will not be shown to you anymore.
