Usage

  • Install your AWS certificates into your local folder where node-red can reach your directory

    Example:

    /root/.agent/certs/-
                    |--YourThingName.private.key
                    |--YourThingName.cert.pem
                    |--root-CA.crt
YourThingName is the AWS Thing name what is the value you keyin when creating your thing/device.
  • Setup the node-red-contrib-aws-iot-hub node with AWS Certs path pointed to /root/.agent/certs/

    Example:

    awsCerts = /root/.agent/certs/
  • The final configuration will be used in the node-red-contrib-aws-iot-hub code look likes:
    keyPath : '/root/.agent/certs/YourThingName.private.key',
    certPath : '/root/.agent/certs/YourThingName.cert.pem',
    caPath : '/root/.agent/certs/root-CA.crt',
    clientId : YourThingName,
    region : us-east-1
