ClearBlade Cat’s Eye Product Release
June 30, 2023
On June 30th, 2023, ClearBlade released the latest version of our award-winning IoT software, Cat’s Eye. It has been a quarter filled with exciting new opportunities as IoT Core continues to improve and Intelligent Assets becomes more customizable. Learn more about all the great new features below.
Terraform IoT Core: ClearBlade IoT Core now has a public Terraform provider available. This allows for creating, updating, and deleting registries and devices with industry-standard DevOps processes. https://registry.terraform.io/providers/ClearBlade/clearblade/latest/docs
IoT Core Improvements: Numerous fixes were made to improve the IoT Core offering and ensure like-for-like capability with the Google Cloud offering. This includes Config message acknowledgments, QoS downgrades matching MQTT specification, GatewayID information passed to Pub/Sub, certificate expirations, and keeping alive 0 disabled checks. These issues make migrating and running your IoT solution rapidly easier than ever.
IoT Enterprise and Edge
OIDC: ClearBlade has released OIDC support for the IoT Enterprise Platform this quarter. This means that developers and their credentials can now be managed via single sign-on-like capabilities and use their internal IAM accounts for Platform access.
Acknowledgments Triggers: ClearBlade IoT Enterprise allows for triggering custom logic on lower levels of MQTT behavior with triggers for acknowledgments release. When the device acknowledges receipt of messages or pings, it’s now possible to implement logical customer behaviors.
Message Tracing: Large-scale device solutions with high message rates can be challenging to debug. You can now use ClearBlade’s debug logging to trace messages by topic with publisher and subscriber information.
IA Custom Roles: A new Intelligent Assets Roles page allows for creating new custom roles and editing existing roles.
IA Custom Plugins: Standalone applications can now be plugged into the Intelligent Assets dashboard by entering a microfrontend (MFE) URL to allow completely custom code.
