  1. Download demo CSV file
  2. Add your device information and prepare the CSV (see section Preparing CSV file for more details).
  3. Once you have the CSV file in order, go to the RMS web page, Left sidebar panel, (Management → Overview) and click on Overview submenu.

Important!

  • Enable auto license checkmark - if checked, a license will automatically be assigned to the added device (if there are any available).
  • The devices should appear in the device table immediately, but at first they will be shown as offline (red).
  • When the status circle turns green, the system will have finished adding the device to RMS.
  • The time that it takes for all devices to be registered on the system may vary depending on the number of devices.

Preparing CSV file[edit]


You can download example file here. Or you can prepare the CSV file for your list of devices manually. The list must be comprised of devices' LAN MAC addresses and serial numbers (IMEIs for TRB) and it must be stored in a CSV file. You can create/edit CSV files with programs like Microsoft Excel, OpenOffice Calc or a simple text editor like Notepad, which we'll be using for this example.


Create a new text file and list your devices. An entry for a single device should be comprised of the device's LAN MAC address (or IMEI) and serial number separated by a comma (,) symbol. One line should contain one device entry. See an example in the Notepad editor below.

Important!

  • Do not forget to save your file as *.csv.
  • If you are editing the file with Notepad. Click the "Save As" option. Then next to "Save as type" choose "All Files" and add the .csv extension next to the file name
  • If you're using Linux, you can just add the same extension to the file name after saving the file the regular way)

RMS WebUI settings[edit]


Although Teltonika devices have RMS service enabled by default. But make sure to set the Connection type field to the Enabled on the device(s) that you are trying to add. You can do that from the System → Administration → RMS.
