Multiple questions regarding creating a IoT Service for our customers

I'm willing to design an IoT system that can support many customers (in the order of hundreds), and each customer has a number of IoT devices (up to 1000). I would have a web service with accounts defined for each customers, so that they can log-in and see some streaming analytics for their associated IoT devices. We can use Power BI type of analytics to represents the data from the devices but the analytics also involve some graphics from a Python code. What services do I need to use from Azure? What is the most straightforward way to implement this? Any online tutorials available for this?

Hi SamRays,

Sorry for the delay in responding.

Azure IoT Central is a software as a service (SaaS) solution that uses a model-based approach to help you to build enterprise-grade IoT solutions without requiring expertise in cloud-solution development. Please see Azure IoT Central architecture, this article provides information on below topics,

"Devices, Azure IoT Edge devices,Cloud gateway,Data stores,Analytics,Rules and actions,Metadata management,Data export,Batch device updates,Role-based access Control (RBAC), Security, UI shell"

I have a further question regarding this, I have made use of IoT central to setup a system like this, but I have an issue when it comes to the access control, I would like IoT central to be multi tenanted, ie. I setup some device templates and my clients can then login and view only their devices that have been 'assigned' to them and this does not look like its currently possible with RBAC or any other means?

Am I wrong with this assumption, or what else can I do?

Regards

Hello @altusbaard
Have you seen this document on Manage users and roles in your IoT Central application, how, as an administrator, you can add, edit, and delete users in your Azure IoT Central application. The article also describes how to manage roles in your Azure IoT Central application.

Let me know if that helps in your scenario.
