Step 1: Configure Cloud Project

Last Updated on : 2021-11-30 02:49:18

Go through the following steps to create and configure a cloud project.

  • Create a project: A cloud project is a collection of resources on the Tuya IoT Development Platform, including devices, APIs, and data. Resources distributed to different projects are isolated from each other.
  • Subscribe to and authorize the required cloud services: You can choose the cloud services provided by Tuya based on the scenarios to speed up your development.
  • Build the asset and user systems: The project owner has administrator permissions on the resources under the asset and user systems, including devices, users, API permissions, and data assets. This way, enterprises can easily manage and control project resources.

Prerequisites

You have registered an account on the Tuya IoT Development Platform.
