Blueprint Devices

Blueprint Devices

Blueprint Devices are dynamic Devices available on Blueprint Dashboards. They can be changed by the user in realtime, and by doing so, the Dashboard will reload the data for the Widgets that use them.

You can change the Blueprint Devices by selecting them in the Blueprint Device selector, available at the top of a Blueprint Dashboard.


Blueprint Devices are actually just conditions that show your account's real devicers. You can specify these conditions when creating a new Blueprint Dashboard or in the Blueprint Settings tab on your dashboard configuration page.

Once you create your Blueprint Device, you can specify the Devices associated to it through the use of tags. Once you associate the conditions for a Device, only those devices can be selected inside of a Blueprint Device.

Creating a Blueprint Device

To add a new Blueprint Device, you must create a rule inside of your dashboard configuration. 

It's important that you know the concepts of each field:

  • Blueprint device: This is a unique identifier for each Blueprint device; it should never be repeated and it should only contain characters in the range A-Z and 0-9.
  • Tag key: This is the tag key used to create the condition to filter the devices (you can add more tags).
  • Tag value: This is the tag key used to create the condition to filter the devices (you can add more tags).

In the example above, I am saying that there is only one Blueprint Device in my Dashboard, and the user will only be able to select Devices that have the tags type = sensor AND city = Railegh for this Blueprint Device.

You can add up to 20 Blueprint Devices in a single dashboard.
