Adding New Device to Torizon Cloud


Torizon Cloud is a convenient and secure mechanism that enables remote over-the-air updates for either a single unit or a fleet of devices. For using Torizon Cloud, a developer, or fleet administrator, should first register the device on the Torizon Cloud app.

In this section, you will:

  • Create an account on Torizon Cloud
  • Register a single device
Typographic Conventions

Throughout the Toradex documentation, the following typographic conventions are used:

$ (dollar sign) Command in the host computer (e.g. your PC)

$ Command in your PC

$$ (double dollar sign) Command in a container in the host computer (e.g. your PC)

$$ Command inside a container in your PC

# (hashtag) Command in the target device/board (e.g. Linux terminal)

# Command in the target board, e.g. Colibri iMX6

## (double hashtag) Command inside a container in the target device (Torizon)

## Command inside a container in Torizon

> (greater-than sign) Command in the bootloader (e.g. U-Boot console)

This is a requisite for the entire Quickstart, but our Torizon Cloud app will run on any browser, on any Linux, Windows or MacOS.

For this lesson:

  • Access to the board terminal. It is described in the previous lesson on this Quickstart Guide named Linux Terminal and Basic Usage.

Step 1

Go to the Torizon Cloud website and log in. Register a new account for free if you don't have one.

Torizon Cloud login page

Step 2

In the Recent Devices column, click Provision Device.

Add new device

Step 3

Copy the command showed on the screen.

Command to provision a new device

Step 4

Paste it on your SoM's terminal and execute it:

Device Terminal

You will be prompted with the torizon user password. Type in the password and press Enter.

After the process is finished, the expected output is similar to this:

== Success!
Device has been registered with the system and credentials are in place!

"registeredName": "Acidic-Poschweck",
"deviceID": "apalis-imx8-07006378toradexint-a742",
"deviceUuid": "c39cc5ea-ccbc-445b-9825-b94c0ec9bff3",
"createdAt": "2021-05-27 13:11:14.655340179 +0000 UTC m=+7935.602132966"


If you don't remember how to connect to the board's terminal, go back a few lessons on this Quickstart Guide until you reach the lesson Linux Terminal and Basic Usage.

Step 5

Your device will appear on the Torizon Cloud dashboard. If it does not show up automatically, refresh (F5) the Device's view.
