Provisioning and autoprovisioning

I'm using IoT Agent and I'm reading that there are two types of provisioning: provisioning and autoprovisioning (or preprovisioning). I tried the "provisioning" simply using the curl command (i.e. curl localhost:4041/iot/devices ...) but I don't understand preprovisioning. Are there differents or are they the same? If not, could you give me some info or real example?

Thanks a lot

Thanks for your question.

If you are reading https://github.com/telefonicaid/iotag..., pre-provision and provision terms are used in places with the same purpose.

Nevertheless, IoT Agents framework contain a couple of interesting features that avoid repeating the device provisioning operation for devices with the same characteristics, i.e., multiple motes with temperature, moisture and pollution sensors deployed within a Smart City. In this case, you can use configurations (https://github.com/telefonicaid/iotag...) feature.

This functionality is clearly used by the lwm2m IoT Agent, where you can provide a configuration and devices matching it will be auto-provisioned the first time they connect to the agent.
