Hi Youssef,

there are a lot of examples and documentation out there to use a raspberry pi with Cumulocity IoT.
https://cumulocity.com/guides/device-tutorials/raspberry-pi-4/

https://thin-edge.github.io/thin-edge.io/html/tutorials/connect-c8y.html

and many more.

Hello stefan ,
i added raspberry’s ID to cumulocity but it won’t connect, even after changing the host in the raspberry pi and connecting raspberry to the wifi.

Hi Youseef,

which agent do you use on the raspberry pi? There might be logs of that agents that could help to identify the issue

Hi Youssef,

I definitely recommend thin-edge.io for easily connecting and sending data to Cumulocity from a Raspberry Pi. This getting started guide is written specifically for the Raspberry Pi and will take you through everything from installation to connection to sending data.
Getting started with thin-edge.io - thin-edge.io docs

You need to check in Administration → Users/Roles if your user has the “admins” role which contains ROLE_TENANT_ADMIN or ROLE_TENANT_MANAGEMENT_ADMIN. If not assign it to the “admins” role and to your user.
