Azure IoT Central gateway (not Azure IoT Edge): How to send downstream devices' telemetry data?

Hi,

I've read the following page and I tried the tutorial using the real devices (not simulated devices).

https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/iot-central/core/tutorial-define-gateway-device-type

I think this gateway is not Azure IoT Edge.
I don't know how to send downstream devices' telemetry data via gateway.
My questions are:

Q1. Whose SAS should the gateway use? I believe it's the gateway's.
Q2. What JSON format should the gateway use? I guess it has downstream device's id or something to distinguish downstream devices. But I couldn't find the info.

I might have misunderstanding about Azure IoT Central gateway.
Please let me know if my understanding is wrong.

Best regards,
takemori

    Is there any update on this? Is it possible to create a gateway device (using some of the Azure IoT SDKs), without running the full IoT Edge runtime?
