  1. Click Browse.
  2. Click Add Device. Then, select your SensorTag device type.
  3. Click Next.
  4. Enter a unique device ID. (The mac address of your SensorTag that you noted before will be unique.)
  5. Click Next. Leave the metadata as is.
  6. Click Next.
  7. Enter your own token. Copy and save this token. You cannot retrieve it later if you either forget or lose it.
  8. Click Next. Then, click Add.
    Because you bound the IoT Platform service into your application, your application can connect to the platform without any further security configuration. If you plan to run your Node-RED application outside of Bluemix or without binding the IoT service, then you need application security credentials.
  9. Click Apps.
  10. Click Generate API Key.
  11. Set the expiry to some date in the future.
  12. Record the API Key and the authentication token. You’ll need them later.
    This is an application-level token and is distinct from the device token that you generated for your SensorTag.
  13. Click Generate.
