MXChip not connecting to IoT Hub

Samuel 1 Reputation point

I am following the Azure MXChip Get Started guide but am not able to connect the device to IoT Hub.


I have tried the connection string for both the device and iothubowner however neither work.
The device after rebooting just has the text Running... > IoT Hub.;DeviceId=MXChip-Dev;SharedAccessKey=STRING=;SharedAccessKeyName=iothubowner;SharedAccessKey=STRING=

I can't see the device inside IoT Hub.

As this was last updated July 2020, has there been changes to the way the device needs to connect or do I need to set up any type of permissions for the device in IoT Hub?

    @Samuel Welcome to Microsoft Q&A forum!

    Documentation works as expected. Could you confirm, if you have registered a device and got the connection string as per the documentation?

    Below is an example of the device connection string.


    You have mentioned, I can't see the device inside IoT Hub. where are you looking for the device?
