IOTCentral connector became "legacy"

Hi all,

I just saw a red mark on the IOTCentral connector logo stating that it is now legacy.

What does it mean exactly ? I could not find any definition of "legacy"

    Hi Frederic,

    The legacy connector is meant to be used with legacy Azure IoT Central applications. Legacy applications are those that do not support IoT Plug and Play in device templates. The legacy connector does not work with non-legacy applications.

    Over the next few weeks, we will release a new Azure IoT Central connector that works with non-legacy applications.

    Hi Frederic,

    Thanks for reaching out to us!

    With the Azure IoT Central connector, you can trigger flows when a rule has fired and take action by creating new devices, updating existing devices, and deleting devices.

    For more info please visit , Azure IoT Central (Legacy) (Preview) and limitations.


    Example: Logic Apps

    Step 1 : Create a user in your AAD, (as per the instructions on limitations page)

    Step 2: Add the Azure IoT Central Connector inside the logic app designer. You can choose from available actions.

    • Complete the connector requirements as per onscreen instructions to connect to your existing IoT Central app.

    Thanks Vivian for the explanation.

    Do you know what will be the new features provided by this connector? Will it only be about supporting "Plug & Play" device templates?

    More generally speaking, is there a web site where we can find the announcements of this kind of new Azure & IoT features ?

    Indeed we are investigating about the possibility to use the connector but it doesn't support what we need at the moment.
