Starfish Studio is a web application developers can use to design, test, and validate simulated IoT devices before deploying their applications on the network. They can create and experiment with various network configurations—called "solutions"—and simulate device and network activity.
In Starfish Studio, developers can:
- Develop a solution without deploying real devices
- Build a virtual solution from a collection of templates or those they create themselves
- Configure the number of simulated devices and their data schemas
- Simulate the data feed
- Create an account to access simulated data through API in their own application
- Mix real devices and simulated devices to test new applications on top of an existing infrastructure
Solution: A collection of devices that are deployed in the field for a specific use or application. Solution names are case sensitive.
Device: An Itron Networked Solutions AP or Milli, or external devices such as a sensor that gauges changes in environment since it was last recorded.
Observation: Any sensor data about changes in the environment, such as temperature, humidity, or location.
Webhook: A user-defined HTTP callback triggered by an event.
Token: A unique access token that authorizes the user to to call Data Platform APIs. To obtain a token, you must provide the ClientID and Secret key obtained from Itron Networked Solutions when you registered with the Developer Portal.
