We’re using balenaCloud for our next application. These devices can authenticate with balenaCloud to send data and receive updates etcetera, but our devices also have extra data that isn’t used in balenaCloud of course. So we would like to link the balenaCloud devices to our own server where the data can be stored. But than the balenaCloud device has 2 different authentication setups.
I would like to gather some information and tips from the community and the balena team on how to setup this ‘link’ between balenaCloud devices and our server. For example, is it possible to use the same authentication credentials for balenaCloud as for our server? Or do we have to make a “setup”-protocol for the device that registers with our server and the only link is the UUID? And if so, are there recommendations to do this automated, just like the flashing of balenaCloud?
I’d love to hear some thoughts about it, because we’d like to make this progress as automated as possible!
Thanks in advance!
