FX30 set Metadata for previously provisioned device using API

Hello All.

for my application I need to apply set some metadata parameters of the device (known as “custom properties” in the Octave dashboard) for the device that was already provisioned before.

From Octave API docs I found it is only possible doing so using Bulk Provision Device API call. If I do that on previously provisioned device I get Error 400 stating “Device already exists in Octave”.

Is there any other way to set metadata rather than removing the device and re-provisioning it using Bulk Provision Device?

For instance, since I can set this Azure device ID from the Octave dashboard (see picture) it means there’s some API function which allows doing so

You can update the “metadata” thanks to the Device API endpoint (PUT)


Make sure to rewrite the whole “metadata” object
