Bosch IoT Insights: Embedding Dialogue Window and other further improvements

The new release of Bosch IoT Insights comes with the following improvements:

Embedding Dialogue Window

We introduced a new embedding dialogue for our dashboards. In the past the functionality was only available by using our API. Now, there exists a new Embed Button at each dashboard view. Henceforth, admin users can create dashboard embedding links in a more convenient way. For further information, please have a look at our documentation.


Embedding supports full screen mode

We have extended our embedding functionality to allow an embedded Bosch IoT Insights frame to be loaded in full screen mode by using the query parameter fullscreen=true.
For further information, please have a look at our documentation.

Bosch IoT Things instances are migrated from BIC to Azure

In our effort to migrate Bosch IoT Insights to the Azure hosting environment, all Free Plans instances of Bosch IoT Insights booked after March 1st 2022  use for device management, underneath a Bosch IoT Things Free Plan on Azure Netherlands.
Newly booked paid plans will follow this procedure soon.
Existing Bosch IoT Things subscriptions which are managed by Bosch IoT Insights will be migrated to Azure Europe in future.
This will be announced separately.


Input History: The filename on download is now the same as on upload

Often users want to have the same filename when downloading it as on upload, because the filename often contains relevant information.
We adjusted the logic, so that the filename on download is now the same as on upload.


Table Widget supports device images

With this change, the user of a Table Widget is able to create an image column, using one of the three different sources:

  • Device Image – in case of a device, a path to the image can be provided. Will fallback to the device type image if not found.
  • Base64 Image – a valid base 64 image string can be provided to display
  • URL Image – using a URL (also placeholders are supported)

You can also adjust the height/width of the image according to your needs.


“Pick-List” property type for devices

We introduced a new property type for device types called “selection“. This new property type allows selecting multiple values as well as defining custom value entries, if enabled. A single value selection already exists before and existing device type using this property type are migrated to the new, specific property type.

Booking a device directly from the device details page

We introduced a new way to create bookings for devices directly from the device details view. For this, we have added two new buttons, one located in the action bar, the other within the booking information block of a device.


White labeling will also be used for “Licenses”, “Cookies” and “More Settings”

To improve the navigation, the project context will be kept if you navigate to footer or header sites, as licenses, cookies, or user settings. These sites are still available without login. The improvement is that you still see the project navigation bar and the URL containing the project in case you have been logged in beforehand.
