Managing which assets in a system are running on which Edge instances can be a cumbersome challenge as your IoT Solution scales.
The ClearBlade Platform simplifies this challenge by allowing for defining groups of assets as Deployments. Assets available for inclusion in a deployment are
Collections - a full copy of the collection
Items - a single item in a collection
Triggers - the trigger definitions
Timers - the timer definitions and state
Users - the full user table
User - a single user
Devices - the full device table
Device - a single device
Portals - the replication of the portal. - note to host portals at the edge your edge release will need to include the portal server.
Adapters - Adapters and their process setup
Each asset has several options available for how it is deployed.
Deploy - The deploy process will move the initial schema and value to the edge. Changes to the asset from the platform or the edge will not by synchronized.
Sync - With the asset deployed, including the synch option will automatically keep the asset synchronized in same state on both the platform and the edge
