Can I see the telemetry data on CLI with SelfSigned authentication type?

Haris Papageorge 246 Reputation points

I have a device (subber) in the IoT Hub thermos.
I am sending data via my device which is authenticated with self signed certificates.

When i type this command in the CLI "az iot device simulate -d subber -n thermos" I get this response: MQTT simulation is only supported for symmetric key auth (SAS) based devices

Does this mean that I am not able to see the traffic of telemetry data in the CLI from my device?

    Hi @Haris Papageorge , I understand you're trying to view the data your device is sending to IoT Hub. The az iot device simulate command isn't the one you're looking for in that case. To view the messages your device is sending, you can use the az iot hub monitor-events command. You can find the documentation here.

     az iot hub monitor-events -n -d subber
