Create a database

The first step to configure IoT Edge Connect Message Store is to create a database for your property hostname.

A database is a top-level storage unit that can contain one or more data sets. Each property can have several databases, and after creating a database you can create data sets.

Before you create an ECMS database, make sure that you can log in to ‚ÄčControl Center‚Äč using a User ID and Password that has the IoT ECMS product enabled in your contract.

  1. In ‚ÄčControl Center‚Äč, go to ‚ėį > IOT SOLUTIONS > Publish-subscribe service > IoT Edge Connect Message Store.
  2. In the left-side menu, click Create database.
  3. In the text field, enter the name of the database you want to create.
  4. Press Enter or click plus-icon.
    The database appears on the list.

Now you can create a data set within the database. You need to create at least one database with one data set to fully configure the product. See Configure ECMS in a property.
