Limitations on Device Types

Is there a limit to the number of entries you can have on the “variables” tab of a device type definition?

Thanks, Chip

@chipmc,

There’s no limit the the amount of variables that you can create in the Variables tab of a Device type.

As a recommendation, put the raw variables first and then the synthetic variables because the engine requires the raw variables the synthetic’s depend on to exist.

@dsr,

You are the expert but I can tell you that this is not my experience when creating the variables using the web interface. Should I open a ticket and submit a movie to illustrate?

Thanks,

Chip

Sure @chipmc you can add the movie here if the size allows or send it to support@ubidots.com

For you reference, I’ve created Device types with 100+ variables before with no problem but there might be a bug.
I’ll appreciate your report so we can try and reproduce it.

Best,

@dsr, Well, it should come as no surprise that you are right about being able to add more variables. However, there is an issue with the interface that may need some fixing. I can’t upload the video here so I will do so on the site.

Thanks,

Chip

@chipmc thanks for sending the video showcasing this behavior. I’ve already reported to our Dev team.
For the being, please use Firefox, Chrome or Brave to be able to create all the variables.

Best,
