Best Practices at a Glance for Building ThingWorx Solutions
Consider the following best practices when you build your IoT solution:
Include entities in a project. Use only one project for one solution.
Tag entities with model tags.
Make all extension entities non-editable.
Create localization tokens for all user interface labels.
Use JavaScript for implementing services.
Use Thing Shapes to define services and properties.
Use a unique namespace prefix for entity names, properties and services.
Define organizations and user groups for entities to set visibility and permissions.
Split large solutions into smaller extensions.
Do not use fixed asset Things to execute services in mashups. Asset Things should be dynamically selected or looked up and then their services should be executed.
To avoid problematic scenarios, use the services of helper or manager Things. These services take the name of an asset Thing as the input parameter that is further used in mashups.
