Server URL

Tap this preference to change the api_url parameter that is included in Aruba authentication responses. This will ONLY change the parameter in the response, not the actual address of the server.

Port number

Tap this preference to change the port of the IoT-Server.

BLEConnect settings

bleConnect action timeout

Tap this preference to set the timeout of each bleConnect action

Note: This feature applies to each action, not to the connection at all. The default connection timeout of the Aruba sensors is 30 seconds.

bleConnect keep connections alive

Tap this preference to enable or disable the keep-alive feature. This feature will periodically send messages to the remote device in order to prevent the connection from timing out. The messages are sent every 30 seconds to match the current timeout of the Aruba sensors.

Server security / authentication

Maximum server sessions

Tap this setting to set the maximum amount of concurrent connections. The lowest possible value is 1 connection. Therefore, additional sessions will be discarded.

Static access token

Tap this preference to change the static access token of the IoT-Server. This token will be used for authentication. Telemetry messages that contain this token as the access token won’t be rejected.

Authentication username

Tap this preference to change the username of the server authentication. This username will also be used to access protected content of the server (Web-Dashboard, API calls).

Authentication password

Tap this preference to change the password of the server authentication. This password will also be used to access protected content of the server (Web-Dashboard, API calls). The password is not viewable.

Reauthentication-timer

Tap this preference to change the duration of the reauthentication timer

  • If this feature is enabled, clients have to reauthenticate when the timer expired. The timer also controls the “expiring_in” parameter of the Aruba authentication response messages
  • If this feature is disabled, clients won’t have to reauthenticate when the timer expired
