Attributes for Devices

Hi all,

Hope you are all doing well.

I have a small question about the IoT Agent and Orion components in the Fiware stack.

My question is that when I enable a device at the fiware stack through curl command or postman

I specify the fiware service , fiware service path device id etc, and then I need to define the attributes that they will map to the device itself.

What I want to achieve is to specify empty attributes and then the device will send whatever attributes it "wants".

So it will not be constrained to specific data models.

Is this possible?

Best wishes

First of all, thank you for your question, we are glad to receive feedback and suggestions from the community!

To the best of my knowledge, what you intend to do is not possible with the current version of the IoT Agents so far. You can find a detailed explanation on the following GitHub issue: https://github.com/telefonicaid/iotag...

In which use-cases do you think that this feature would be useful? We could study if it is an interesting functionality to be added to the IoT Agents.

Thanks again,
