Sync Things

Any Thing created in AnythingDB exists on the cloud only. In order to use the Thing at the Edge it needs to be synchronized to the Edge.

  1. In order to synchronize a Thing to the Edge, you need to add a Label first.

  2. Navigate to Edge Ops > Fleet Management > Asset Details and click on the Synced Things button.

    The Synced Things Details Pane opens.
  3. Click the Add button to bring up a modal.
    Figure 3.

  4. The modal shows a Select Label dropdown which can be used to select the Label added to the Thing in the first step.

    Any Thing not already synced to the Edge and having this Label will be selected for synchronization.
  5. Click the Add button to start the synchronization process.
