I am currently doing the trailhead module on IoT cloud and trying to access it throught the developer editon... I have trawled the web for this, but cannot find any resource. Is it currently available through a DEV account?

I don't believe it is currently possible to access the IoT cloud in developer edition orgs - as at Spring '17.

I'm basing this on:

  • Having never seen such a developer org to date
  • That the IoT Cloud Design and Rollout Trailhead module only has Q&A assessments rather than checks against an IoT enabled org. Trailhead would typically favor real tests over Q&A where possible. Especially for an advanced module.
  • It's a paid feature that you need to access via your Account Executive, which a Developer Edition org doesn't have. Source - Need access to IOT cloud demo org
  • Hi @DanielBallinger Are there any updates regarding this? Is there any way to get a trial version of IoT Cloud for 30 days? Any idea?

  • @SE_User I still haven't seen it in the wild or as something that developers can request access to directly. If you have a production org I'd suggest contacting your Account Executive for the next steps. Aug 3, 2017 at 8:46
  • Oh ok, thank you. :)

Salesforce IoT Explorer is now generally available as of W'18 and available in developer editions. I wrote two blog posts to help people get started and see how it fits into a larger IoT strategy:

  • Careful not to be too overly promotional. These posts look relevant (at least according to their titles), so I won't take any action here. Just be careful to not have all of your answers link to your own blog posts. Your contributions will also be much more helpful and less spammy if you can cite some relevant content here so visiting the links is not strictly necessary to glean what useful information you are trying to provide.

  • Yeah, I hear that. It would take a lot of copy/paste to bring the content over here though. I could have provided a bit more info here on how to enable in W'18 orgs and then had a slightly seemingly promotional structure for my links. Thank you for the feedback.

    These posts are great - more information than I was able to find on any official Salesforce site.
