Setting up the SmartThings Cloud

To develop applications that integrate with the SmartThings Cloud, you must retrieve your MNID and generate cloud certificates.

Retrieving the MNID

To retrieve your MNID:

  1. Go to http://smartthings.developer.samsung.com/.
  2. Log in with your Samsung Account.
  3. Locate the MNID in the My Page section.

Enter the retrieved MNID into a manufacturerName field under the platform element in the device definition JSON file.

Generating Cloud Certificates (Coming Soon)

SmartThings™ uses OpenSSL for security. To begin development, you need to get certificates for both plugins (PPK) and devices. For instructions on installing OpenSSL, see the OpenSSL documentation.

To generate SmartThings Cloud certificates:

  1. Go to http://devworkspace.developer.samsung.com. (The site will be available later)
  2. Log in with your Samsung Account.
  3. Go to Common Tools > Certificate Signing Request > Device.
  4. Fill out the form.
  5. Following the instructions on the Web site, generate the privatekey.der file and download the certificate.pem file.
  6. Copy the privatekey.der and certificate.pem files to the res/ directory of your Tizen Things application.
