Importing a Product Model

Updated at: Jun 26, 2019 GMT+08:00


A product model (or profile file) describes the capabilities and features of a device. You can construct an abstract model of a device type by defining a profile file on the IoT platform, allowing it to understand the services, properties, and commands supported by the device.

After a product model is developed and released on the Product Center, import it on the Management Portal.


  1. Choose Product Models, and click Add.
  2. Import the product model from the Product Center or local PC.

    • Import from the Product Center.
      1. Choose Import from Product Center to open the Product Center page.
      2. Search for a product by product name, device type, or manufacturer name. In the search result, click the name of the product to be imported.
      3. Check whether the product is a public product.
        • For a public product, you can click Import to import the product model from the Product Center to the IoT platform.
        • For a private product, you must enter the verification code obtained from the Product Center. If the verification is successful, you can view the product details and import the product model to the IoT platform.
    • Import from your local PC.
      1. Choose Import from Local.
      2. In the dialog box displayed, enter the product name and upload the resource file.
      3. Click Confirm and wait until the import is complete.

      The product ID and product key are used for device registration. Click Save to Local to save the product key. The product key is not displayed on the product model details page. Keep it secure.

  3. View the import result on the Product Models page.

    • Import failure: You can view the cause of the import failure in the Failure Cause area. This helps with fault locating.
    • Import success: You can click Details to view product model details.


      You can delete a disused product from the product list by clicking Delete. After deletion, the devices of this product cannot be used. The functions of the devices under the product are restored only after the product is imported to the Product Center again.
