When you are commissioning sensors you sometimes run into problems. In this article we're going to address validation errors you might run into and what you can do to resolve these validation errors, and have your sensors up and running without any issues.
Sensors can be commissioned and managed by the following administrator roles:
- Subscription Administrators (Subscription Owners are automatically are assigned this role)
- Building Administrators
Validation errors can be encountered when adding single sensors and/or bulk importing multiple.
Sensor ID is mandatory
In order to add and commission a sensor, you need to enter a sensor ID; this field cannot be empty.
Sensor ID needs to be unique
The sensor ID needs to be unique, as the same sensor ID cannot be linked to multiple locations. Note that for bulk importing the sensors duplicate sensors are ignored.
Sensor ID cannot contain emojis
We have added some basic format validations to ensure the user doesn’t make any typos. We do not support emojis; other characters are spaces are still supported.
Multiple sensors added on 1 line
Though not really a validation error, it can occur that you are missing sensor IDs in your total count of sensors. In these situations double check you did not accidentally add multiple sensor IDs on one line when bulk importing sensors.
Sensor ID has 200 characters or more
It is very unlikely that this will occur, however, the Mapiq App will only allow a sensor ID that less than 200 characters.
