Why don't change name of thing?

Hello community,

I didn't find answer of my question. Why we cannot change name of thing? One of the reason should be that using thing name on script case such as; services, edge sdk etc. but we can change name of the properties or parameter name of service. They might be used too on script file. I didn't find logically answer for this question.

I just want to discuss that what is the reason of this case?

Regards,

There's no way to change the name of a thing. The only "way" it's to delete and recreate it with a different name.

Hi Carles,

I know there is no way. I asked the reason of it.


Thanks reply,

Well, as per my understanding it's normal, you always have a "PK value" for an object, and that's what Thing's Name stands for, what we had done it's create a new property on all the things which it's our Thing's Name and always can be changed.
