Hi Everyone, I see this is a good community of helpful people. I am trying to install and configure the azure iot hub connector to my openhab2 setup but am facing some issues.

1- the documentation page is a bit sparse on the ‘how to’ guides.
2- I cant seem to set it up. Where does this need to be configured, is it available in the paper UI or does it need to be done via the console?

Any help appreciated. Once I have worked it all out I will porvide an update for the process documentation - if that helps?

Thanks,
Kev

It’s available in PaperUI. Go to the Inbox, click the + icon and choose the Azure IOT Hub. Create the Item and paste in your API key into the appropriate field.

You will then need to link the Channels on the Thing to Items.

Hi Rich, thanks so much for responding. I dont see anything in the inbox as with other bindings, azure iot hub just isnt visible. I have set up quite a few others though and feel relatively comfortable with the process now. Any other thoughts? Thanks again.

OK so progres, it became visible in this ‘services’ section once I have installed MQTT. I can now see this view in Configuration, Services:


I have added the required information but Im now not sure of the next steps, should the data become visible withing Azure now or is there a further step? Thanks again.

I know nothing of this binding nor this technology so I’ve no idea what you should be seeing.

hy there, i have added the connection string to the configuration of the Azure HUB in the openhab Paper UI, then rebooted the raspy with the openhabian, then the things appeared in the IoT device list in the Azure IoT.
