AWS IoT Core now offers a new device provisioning console experience that enables customers a more intuitive way to select the best provisioning option for their IoT solution. You can now more easily navigate the device provisioning scenarios and follow a simple flow to create a provisioning template and configure permissions for a single or many devices. The updated user interface also gives you access to documentation, product information, and resources to assist you in choosing, creating, and managing your device provisioning flows in the same place.

AWS IoT Core is a managed cloud service that lets connected devices easily and securely interact with cloud applications and other devices. When building an IoT solution, customers must provision their devices with X.509 certificates before securely connecting and communicating with AWS IoT Core. Provisioning refers to the process of registering devices with their digital certificates and permissions to access cloud resources and associating contextual information such as device serial numbers and location with registered digital identities. For example, for smart home applications, devices such as TVs, light bulbs, and thermostats must be provisioned with the cloud to prove their identities and interact with other cloud-connected products such as intelligent voice assistants.

Visit the AWS IoT Core console to experience the new user interface, which is offered at no additional charge beyond the standard AWS IoT Core pricing and is generally available immediately in all regions where AWS IoT Core is available. See the video walkthrough and developer documentation to learn more about the provisioning options.
