Detailed instructions on how to do each of the above can be found here.

Microsoft also announced that its integrated Microsoft Flow into Azure IoT Central, letting users create workflows within the software as well as run related management tasks.

The update also now offers users the ability to create multiple personalized dashboards and improved language support, with 17 languages and the ability to change languages among users in the same project.

Azure IoT Central is available as a free trial here.
