Fantastic!!! :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

The date and time is working correctly in the Terminal log! :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

In the future, the timezone of Terminals (NodeRed, Host… ) can follow a default time zone defined by the Administrator. In our case it would be UTC -03:00. Currently, Device Inspector Terminal already follows UTC -03:00 set by Administrator

  • Include the “project” field/key in the “device_resource_stream” JSON:
    NOTE: It would help a lot in the NodeRED flow, especially when you want to consult users linked to the Project to trigger alerts/notifications.
    The product field is informed. Why not inform the project field?
