The applications page in the Management Portal enables you to create token that is used to authenticate application connecting to the portal. An application is any software (stand alone programs or programs running on things) that connects to the IoT Portal. While creating the token you need to provide the credentials that is used by the auto registering things and it includes the Thing definition, Roles, License and Tags.
Examples of applications includes Asset Gateway and Enterprise Gateway software products, external applications using the M2M Service API, and Telit 910 modules using the AT command interface. The Developer screen provides the organization specific endpoints used by a software application when connecting to the M2M Service. Analogous to individuals who are assigned a user account to use to log on to the Management Portal using an email address and password, software applications use an application token when they connect to the M2M Service. The application token is used to reference the application, which is defined in a specific organization.
Using the Application Token
When an application is defined, it gets assigned an application token. This application token is used by the software application when it connects to the M2M Service.
For Asset Gateways and Enterprise Gateways, the application token is used in the gateway's TR50 -> TR50 Connection Management -> Application Token parameter. For more information, see TR50 Connection Management tab.
For Telit 910 modules, the application token is used in the module's AT#DWCFG AT command. For more information, see Telit xE910 AT Interface.
For external applications, the application token is used in the application's authenication. For more information, see the specific application language or transport section of the M2M Service Interface.
