Configure a flow

Learn how to forward the data from your device to your application

With a Flow you configure the way your IoT data should flow through KPN Things, from device to destination. Learn more about flows.

1. Your first Flow

We have already created a first empty flow for you named My first flow. You can create new flows using the Add flow button on the top right.

Click on Add Devices in the Flow overview page.

In the next screen, click Link an existing Device.

Now you see all Devices you can add to this Flow. Click on your Device to link it to the Flow.

Now your Device is linked to the Flow!

3. Activate a Decoder

Open your Project, open your Flow, and then click Data Processing.

Click on the Device type for which you want to activate a decoder (#1 in the screenshot below). At this moment you probably have only one type of device linked to the Flow, so open that one. All available decoders are now shown (#2 in the screenshot below).

Here you can toggle on and off what (decoded) data you want to receive in your application (like indicated with #3 in the screenshot below). If you want to know more about the decoder, click on the link in the description.

For M2M devices the screen looks a little bit different. Also here you can toggle on and off decoders (e.g. #1 in the screenshot below).

You're now ready for the next step:
