What is a Project?

Each project defines a solution you buy or build in KPN Things.

A project has the following attributes:

  • UUID - the technical identifier of your project.

  • Name - the name you give to your project.

  • Description (optional) - further explanation of your project.

  • Creation date - the moment your project was created.

  • Subscription - the type of project you have, determined by what product you bought.

The project subscription determines what you can and may do in the KPN Things Portal. Some KPN Things provide you with more features in the Portal then others.

Depending on the Subscription of your Project, one or more of the following restrictions can apply:
