Application Service SDK

The Edge Xpert Application Service Software Development Kit (SDK) allows you to create custom Application Services. Custom Application Services allow you to implement pipeline functions to meet your requirements. For example, you can create pipeline functions to do the following:

  • Filter data
  • Convert data
  • Export data

To obtain the Edge Xpert Application Service SDK, contact IOTech support.

As Edge Xpert Application Service SDK expands the features of EdgeX Foundry Application Functions SDK, it is recommended to understand EdgeX Foundry Application Functions SDK before using Edge Xpert Application Service SDK.

Note

To create your own Application Services using Edge Xpert Application Service SDK, you will need a certain level of knowledge on writing Go programs. If built-in pipeline functions can satisfy your requirement, it is advisable that you use Edge Xpert Application Service Configurable rather than creating a new custom application service.
