Import an IoT Edge package into your Remote Monitoring solution accelerator

A deployment manifest defines the modules to deploy to an IoT Edge device. This article assumes a developer in your organization has already created deployment manifest. To learn about how a developer creates a manifest, see one of the following IoT Edge how-to articles:

A developer creates and tests a deployment manifest in a development environment. When you're ready, you can import the manifest into your Remote Monitoring solution accelerator.

Export a manifest

Use the Azure portal to export the deployment manifest from your development environment:

  1. In the Azure portal, navigate to the IoT hub you're using to develop and test your IoT Edge devices. Click IoT Edge and then IoT Edge deployments: IoT Edge

  2. Click the deployment that has the deployment configuration you want to use. The Deployment Details page displays: IoT Edge deployment details

  3. Click Download IoT Edge manifest: Download deployment manifest

  4. Save the JSON file as a local file called deploymentmanifest.json.

Now you have a file that contains the deployment manifest. In the next section, you import this manifest as a package into the Remote Monitoring solution.

Import a package

Follow the steps below to import an Edge deployment manifest as a package into your solution:

  1. Navigate to the Packages page in the Remote Monitoring web UI: Packages page

  2. Click + New Package, choose Edge Manifest as the package type, and click Browse to select the deploymentmanifest.json file you saved in the previous section: Select manifest

  3. Click Upload to add the package to your Remote Monitoring solution: Uploaded package

You've now uploaded an IoT Edge deployment manifest as a package. On the Deployments page, you can deploy this package to your connected IoT Edge devices.
