Commands to manage the life cycle of the device.
In this section, we will describe the different operational commands that can be sent to an edge node from the Manage Device lateral menu. This menu is accessible by pressing the button with the “gear” icon located on top of the Device Details view.
When you press the button, the “Device Management” lateral menu is shown with several commands to send.
This command will reboot the device.
Depending on the state of your device you will see one option or another. Possible states are:
- Deactivated: Your edge node is registered in Barbara Panel but still cannot be used. It has no applications or configuration loaded, nor security certificates necessary for regular use.
- Active: Your edge node is registered and in normal use mode. It may have applications loaded, different types of configuration, etc.
Delete command deactivates the edge node and unregisters it from Barbara PANEL.
Shut Down Command
Power OFF the device.
Wipe & Brick Command
This command destroys any information stored in the edge node. It is a security command against possible physical theft or devices at risk.
The edge node-related information (telemetries, logs, configurations, etc.) will be available in Barbara Panel until the edge node is finally deleted.
In the following sections, we will see how to upload an application (docker or native) to Barbara Panel and make it available to be deployed to all your edge nodes.
