- IoT Marketplace
All Murano v1.1-and-later accounts have been enabled with the Exchange feature. In your Business account, you should see a link to Exchange at the top of the screen next to the Help dropdown list. Click on the Exchange link to get started.
Once you are on the Exchange page, you will see available Exchange elements represented as cards. Note that, depending on your account tier level, some services may not be available to you. Unavailable service cards will be grayed out, and you will be prompted to upgrade your account tier if you wish to access them.
Adding White Papers to Your Business
Within Exchange, you have the option of accessing white papers from your Business account. To access a white paper:
Click on the card of the white paper you wish to access.
On white paper's specific page, you can learn more about the paper's content. Click the orange "ADD" button and then "DOWNLOAD" if you wish to download this paper and save it to your Business account.
A new tab will open in your browser with the white paper PDF. You have also at this point created a quick-click access to this paper in your Business so you can return to it easily in the future.
Adding Service Elements to Your Business
Within Exchange, you can add pre-built service elements to your Business. To add a service:
Click on the card of the service you wish to add.
On the service's description page, you can learn more about the service offering. Click the orange "ADD SERVICE" button if you wish to add the service to your Business account.
Upon clicking the button to add the service, the service is added to your Business account toolbox.
Adding Service Elements to Your Application or Product Solution
Once you have added an Exchange service element to your Business, you will now be able to use it in your Solution. For the purposes of this guide, you can follow the steps to add a service to an Application Solution.
In Murano, click to open your Solution then navigate to the SERVICES page.
NOTE: You should see some services already listed. These are the free "core" services that are included anytime you create a new Solution.
To add additional services, click "ENABLE SERVICES" to access your toolbox. If you have already added service elements to your Business in Exchange, these services will be listed, and you can now add these elements to your Solution.
Adding Exosite Managed Solutions to your Business
Within the Exchange, you can add solutions that are managed by Exosite. To add a Managed Solution:
Select an element card that is managed by Exosite (eg. Remote Condition Monitoring)
In the top right of the Element Description, select the "CREATE APPLICATION" button, to begin the process of adding a managed solution to your business.
Once selected, a modal will appear requesting a Domain Name as well as an acknowledgement that the solution you are creating for is managed by Exosite.
To continue, Enter a Domain Name and check the acknowledgement box. This confirms that you understand this solution is managed by Exosite and you will not be able to access the source code and publisher controls for it.
Once added, the Managed Solution will appear in your solutions list awaiting approval.
Check out the Manage Services guide to learn more about using services in your Solution.
Adding 3rd Party Managed Solutions to your Business
In addition to solutions managed by Exosite, you can also add solutions that are managed by 3rd party businesses. To add a 3rd party solution:
Select an Element card that is NOT managed by Exosite.
In the top right of the Element Description, select the "Add Service" button.
Once selected, a modal will appear with a disclaimer stating that the Element being added is not certified by Exosite, and that it requires the user to acknowledge this.
To continue, check the acknowledgement box.
Once added, the Element will become available in your solution's Services tab by clicking "Enable Service".
