Definition of an Asset as described in PTC Software Products Licensing Basis.


“Asset” (designated as “IoT”) (also sometimes referred to in the product itself or elsewhere as a “Device” or a “Thing” or a “Remote Thing”) means a sensor, device, machine, system, web service, etc. that is modeled (represented) and/or registered as an asset (or “device” or “thing” within the Licensed Product) or any separately defined part of the foregoing if it is being treated as a separate asset within the software. For example, without limitation, an Asset could be a brake press, industrial dryer, another computer system, or a set of individual components within those machines if modeled or registered as a separate asset in the software), etc.

Thank you for you suggession rjanardan.

I've read this manual before but i'm not sure.


OK I have another question.

if i need to know i have how many asset.

can i see number of asset from Licensing Subsystem Settings>twx_things right?

Such as i have SCP Premium Edition license will have twx_things limit = 50 yes or no?





Yes, you're correct. twx_things represents the limit. 


Hello, I have more question.


You say "Asset is Thing".

If I using schedule , DataBaseThing , Timer , MQTT Thing , Gateway Thing.

It's count in to Thing.


That mean "Asset" right?


I think it not make sense for count the Timer and schedule in Asset. 

twx_things is a feature name in the license file that determines the maximum allowed assets. Refer this article on how to check connected assets or users. 

I following you instruction.


I found 3 asset count in my license.


I try to create thing, industrial connection and etc.


It is not count more 3 asset.


I would like to know " How to count asset ?".
