Change IoT Central application settings

This article describes how, as an administrator, you can manage application by changing application name and URL, uploading image, and delete an application in your Azure IoT Central application.

To access and use the Administration section, you must be in the Administrator role for an Azure IoT Central application. If you create an Azure IoT Central application, you're automatically assigned to the Administrator role for that application.

Change application name and URL

In the Application Settings page, you can change the name and URL of your application, then select Save.

Application settings page

If your administrator creates a custom theme for your application, this page includes an option to hide the Application Name in the UI. This option is useful if the application logo in the custom theme includes the application name. For more information, see Customize the Azure IoT Central UI.

Note

If you change your URL, your old URL can be taken by another Azure IoT Central customer. If that happens, it is no longer available for you to use. When you change your URL, the old URL no longer works, and you need to notify your users about the new URL to use.

Delete an application

Use the Delete button to permanently delete your IoT Central application. This action permanently deletes all data that's associated with the application.

Note

To delete an application, you must also have permissions to delete resources in the Azure subscription you chose when you created the application. To learn more, see Use role-based access control to manage access to your Azure subscription resources.

Manage programmatically

IoT Central Azure Resource Manager SDK packages are available for Node, Python, C#, Ruby, Java, and Go. You can use these packages to create, list, update, or delete IoT Central applications. The packages include helpers to manage authentication and error handling.

You can find examples of how to use the Azure Resource Manager SDKs at https://github.com/emgarten/iotcentral-arm-sdk-examples.
