Local Configuration of Devices

Local Configuration of Devices

After you have built and deployed an application to your edge devices, you might want to change couple of settings of your application which are specific to one single device. However, to achieve that you might not want to change the underlying application and create dozens of new profiles for each single device.

This is where the concept of Local Configuration is needed. Local configuration means, that you change the settings of nodes which are already deployed and running on an edge device. The changes will be applied only to one single edge device and synced back to the Device Twin in the cloud.

To access the local configuration settings of each device, follow these steps:
  1. Click on Deployment > Devices (side panel of your workspace)
  2. Select the device you would like to configure
  3. Click on Configure in the upper right corner
  4. Select the node you would like to configure
The local configuration page per device only shows the nodes which are deployed to this specific edge device and can be configured locally.

Currently available viso nodes for local configuration are:
  1. Region of Interest
  2. Video Feed
After you have configured your node and saved your changes, the Device Status will switch to profile deploying. Once the changes are successful on your edge device, the device status will switch back to profile running.

While local configuration changes are processed to the edge device, you will not be able to change other node settings at the same time.
