Today i am working on a batch operation registering several sensors on IBM Watson IoT.

Using curl you need to encode de API KEY and API TOKEN

It easy using the MAC terminal console

To encode just type on terminal: echo -n ‘user:password’ | base64
the result is —> dXNlcjpwYXNzd29yZA==

To decode just type: echo ‘dXNlcjpwYXNzd29yZA==’ | base64 -D
the result is —> user:password


I setup the connection to cloudant service to store historical data of my IoT devices. When i click “done” an pop up window appears asking to authorize the connection to Cloudant Service. I confirm to authorize and i get the message 502 Bad Gateway: Registered endpoint failed to handle the request. and i can’t store iot device data on cloudant. I tried several times.

I search a lot about this error message with no luck .  To solve the problem erase all IBM cookies from you browser and restart it.
