Dear Rafael, there was no problem with the portal. Nevertheless, the information that you mention could be related to some type of malware in your local machine, I suggest to delete the cache of your browser and scan your computer for malware.

2020-12-14 09:24:16 +0200 answered a question Data Modeling with NGSI-LD: Relationship re-utilization

Your eMail poses some interesting questions which I will attempt to answer. Properties and Relationships are defined within the ETSI specification:


and trying to reduce this 200 page document to a series of bite size tutorials is quite a task. The short answer is yes, one-to-many relationships are fully supported by NGSI-LD, although the official syntax is more verbose than I personally would like.

The 1.3.1 spec supports arrays of relationships as shown:

curl -L -X POST 'http://localhost:1026/ngsi-ld/v1/entities/urn:ngsi-ld:Building:store001/attrs' \ -H 'Content-Type: application/ld+json' \ --data-raw '{ "furniture": [ { "type": "Relationship", "datasetId": "urn:ngsi-ld:Relationship:1", "object": "urn:ngsi-ld:Shelf:001" } ,

{ "type": "Relationship", "datasetId": "urn:ngsi-ld:Relationship:2", "object": "urn:ngsi-ld:Shelf:002" } ], "@context": "https://fiware.github.io/tutorials.Step-by-Step/data-models-context.jsonld" }'

Each element beyond the first must have a unique datasetId. This syntax is also used for Multi valued Properties or GeoProperties (For example where location is being provided by two different sensors e.g. GPS urn:ngsi-ld:GPS or Wifi triangulation. urn:ngsi-ld:WiFi)

The example above comes from the older NGSI-LD for NGSI-v2 Supermarket tutorial https://github.com/FIWARE/tutorials.R... I haven't added an equivalent in the newer Smart Farm NGSI-LD first Smart Farm system yet.

The Orion-LD context broker still supports an unofficial simplified syntax:

curl -L -X POST 'http://localhost:1026/ngsi-ld/v1/entities/urn:ngsi-ld:Building:store001/attrs' \ -H 'Content-Type: application/ld+json' \ --data-raw '{ "furniture":

{ "type": "Relationship", "object": [ "urn:ngsi-ld:Shelf:001", "urn:ngsi-ld:Shelf:002"] } , "@context": "https://fiware.github.io/tutorials.Step-by-Step/data-models-context.jsonld" }'

This mimics the key-values format and also allows one-to-many relationships, but does not allow for meta-data on each element.

As you correctly stated, relationships are directional, and this furniture one-to-many is the direct opposite of reusing something like locatedIn which would appear on multiple entities

curl -X POST \ http://localhost:1026/ngsi-ld/v1/enti... \ -H 'Content-Type: application/ld+json' \ -H 'fiware-servicepath: /' \ -d '{ "locatedIn" :

{ "type": "Relationship", "object": "urn:ngsi-ld:Building:store001", } , "@context": "https://fiware.github.io/tutorials.Step-by-Step/data-models-context.jsonld" }'

Within NGSI-LD the object attribute of a Relationship is specified to be a URN - it can point to any other object, so there is no problem with your Combined urn-ngsi-ld:Computer:001 and urn-ngsi-ld:Mower:002 example.

Did you take a look to the Step by Step tutorials of FIWARE? There is a specific section about Identity Management that can explain what do you need.


2020-03-11 10:33:09 +0200 answered a question How is FIWARE different from PAS182?

PAS182 is a defined standard for data modeling within Smart Cities - it describes the relationships between various concepts so that data from local authority X should hold to the same data model definitions as data from local authority Y.

As the BSI web page states:

"The smart city concept model (SCCM) provides a framework that can normalize and classify information from many sources so that data sets can be discovered and combined to gain a better picture of the needs and behaviours of a city’s citizens (residents and businesses)."

FIWARE is concerned with the interoperability of the transfer of context data. Specifically the current state of a system (i.e. the now) is held within a context broker and all elements surround a context broker must interact with it using a defined standard NGSI.

Therefore there is no conflict between the two - you can base your data models on the terminology defined in PAS182 and create your own entities by communicating with a context broker using NGSI.

2020-03-11 10:21:51 +0200 answered a question I'am unable to access Mashup in Fiware Lab.

Both Mashup and Store are using a different IAM that the one that is used in the FIWARE Lab. If you want to access to them, you need to create the identity in the https://account.lab.fiware.org/

Nevertheless, the last version of the FIWARE Lab dismissed those options from the menu due to the problem that you mentioned. These services are not related to the FIWARE Lab and we decided to dismiss them from the FIWARE Lab menu.

Q1. Is it possible that FIWARE Lab building without OpenStack

Yes, it is possible to build a FIWARE Lab without OpenStack but it is not possible that this node could be federated due to the Identity is shared through the OpenStack Keystone. Nevertheless, there is some mechanism in order to install OpenStack over VMWare for example

I would like to build FIWARE Lab with using VMware vSphere, is it possible?

Yes, it is possible to build a FIWARE Lab node using OpenStac over VMWare vSphere, you can find details in the following link https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-Int...

It is something that it is possible but we never test it.

Q2. Is it possible that controller is running on VMware vSphere

2018-04-19 08:29:46 +0200 edited answer how to use mirrored orion or some fiware component images from public FIWARE Lab on private FIWARE Lab.

Yes, you can use the public images in FIWARE Lab for your private use.

Q1: You can get a FIWARE Lab account (a trial account is enough) so you can download images (openstack image save) and you can upload them to your private installation of Openstack. However, you should carefully read the licences of every Generic Enabler implementation to be sure you don't break the licences with your usage.

Q2: Regarding Orion, there is a public instance of Orion in FIWARE Lab requiring authentication against FIWARE Lab's Keyrock. If you want to install something like the public instance of Orion, you might need to install also a PEP Proxy in order to authenticate to your own Keyrock with your own users.

If you need help with any of those steps, you can send an email to fiware-lab-help@lists.fi-ware.org

2018-04-09 08:35:06 +0200 answered a question how to build Private FIWARE Lab


In FIWARE Ecosystem, we differentiate between FIWARE Private and Public nodes in the following way:

  • Public nodes are ones in which they have shared the resources with the community and the identity of the users is distributed.

  • Private nodes are ones that do not share neither resources or identities but they can request us to provide the corresponding images that we are using or any other technology like the Cloud portal.

Giving that, any instance (public or private) is based in OpenStack distribution, therefore the only thing that you need is install from the scratch the current version of OpenStack with both OpenStack Keystone and OpenStack Horizon.

The documentation in https://forge.fiware.org/plugins/medi...LabNodes_Handbook provide a good reference about all the installation process and help you in the decision to install the node.


If you do not plan to federate the identity it is not needed to use the FIWARE Keyrock, it is a security component used to provide authentication/authorization to the other FIWARE Services, not Cloud services. Therefore it it nos needed its installation.


Both if it is public or private node, we have a specific service to synchronize the images in the different nodes, in case of public the process is very easy due to the identity is federated. In case of private nodes, we need to know the IP address of your Keystone service and the credentials of a user in your instance in order that we can upload automatically the images in your node. Afterward, you should move those images from the corresponding user from private to public images in order that the rest of the users can use them. We can give you support on it.

It is a typical example about the project in which you are working on. It is not authorised to use the cloud. In this case, it is due to an error in the authentication process that we had resolved during last week. Nevertheless is you have a new problem with the cloud, I recommend that you send an email to fiware-lab-help@lists.fiware.org which is our ticketing system to resolve those kind of problems.

2017-08-28 14:53:13 +0200 answered a question AMD EPYC FIWARE LAB

I think that it is a low level question that need to be resolved at the level of the Operating System. You have to keep in mind that FIWARE Lab is running OpenStack and it usually is running over the proper Operating System. Our recommendation is going with ubuntu so you have to be sure that the current LTS version of Ubuntu (16.04) can work without problem with this architecture.

More recent version of Ubuntu (or other OS), does not allow to to assume that it would be adopted in short time with the corresponding OpenStack version. Take care about it.

When you are talking about use your existing Core PHP code in FIWARE, you want to say that you want to deploy it on a Virtual Machine inside of the FIWARE Lab cloud. If it is the case, you have to create your own Trial account in FIWARE Lab (https://account.lab.fiware.org) and go to the cloud in order to deploy your Virtual Machine.

If the question is focused on different things, please let us know in order to give you more details.

2017-08-28 14:38:40 +0200 answered a question FIWARE Installation Tutorial

I think that if you are talking about use Compute server in VMWare, there is an option which is described in the following document https://docs.openstack.org/ocata/conf.... If you plan to install all the OpenStack servers in a VMWare Cloud, well in that case, I suppose that could be possible but not recomendable. Take into account that you are deploying a virtual environment over another virtual environment which could delay all the operations. I made by myself the installation locally of an OpenStack over a VirtualBox instance therefore I know what that is mean in terms of performance.

The decisions should be guided by the principles of openness, meritocracy and transparency and as such they should not be subject to individual companies. This is is the best guarantee of stability and openness and of course for any public administration and government facing the decision to which software should be adopted for Smart Cities.

No no, FIWARE Cloud is an experimental environment that FIWARE offer to you free in order to develop your components. Like any other Cloud, we offer virtual machines with different flavours in which you can install your components and work with them independently of the own resources that you have.

FIWARE Cloud or FIWARE Lab, how is also known, is distributed around the world, which gives you the possiblity to select the node that you want. The only requirement that we say is that due to it is open source environment, the components that you put there should be free or open source. If you plan to obtain in sort time some revenues from your developments you have to move to a FIWARE commercial node or any other cloud environment to keep the activity up and running.
