Getting Started with DCM - Data Collection Cloud by Secomea

Preparing the Data Collection Cloud (DCC) for access to SiteManager/DCM

Please follow this video guide or the below step by step guide. 

Step by Step:

Login to https://dcc.secomea.com

Add GateManager if not already added. (if added please skip the #### section)


Howto add a GateManager/Domain to the DCC.

The LinkManager Mobile account created by the following section is the link between DCC and the GateManager, the location of the LinkManager account and/or joining of the account determines which subdomains and SiteManagers can be seen in the DCC

Goto your GateManager account and add a LinkManager Mobile account
(no spaces allowed in the Account Name)

(Username/password - No License needed - This will send you a mail with one time password)

Login to https://dcc.secomea.com

Under Customer Setup click

Fill in the details:

GateManager name:
A descriptive name  (Demo or Test are not descriptive)

  • Domain or Company + Domain of the LMM  account used would be better.

FQDN: The GateManager URL eg: demo-gm.secomea.com or gmxx.secomea.com

LinkManager Mobile Username of the account created

LinkManager Mobile Password of the account created (One time password received in the mail)

Click Verify to check the connection between DCC and GateManager (LinkManager Mobile account)
(The cloud will detect if the password is a OneTime Password and create a new password.)

Click Save password to save the settings. 


Preparing the SiteManager DCM to be added to the DCC

Create your DCM config file and import it in SiteManager GUI > DCM > Import.

First time users can use this pre-prepared file: SIM2DCC example

Goto SiteManager GUI > GateManager > Agents and create an agent for the data collection. (Any predefined agents will also work, just tick the DCM check box on the right side, DCM colum.)

In the Parameter details page add the Collectorname value from the DCM configuration file.

Restart the DCM : SiteManager GUI > DCM > Restart.

Now return to the DCC to retrieve the certificates for installation

Give it a name, and click “create”

Then copy / paste the 3 certificates into the DCM cert-store.

The first one is the ROOT CA certificate, next is the Device Certificate and last is the Device Key. Make sure to select the proper types in the drop-down menu in the DCM.

Installing certificates in the SiteManager

In SiteManager GUI > DCM > Certificates
add the certificates from the DCC with the names from the DCM config file:

"RootCAName": " dccrootca ",

"DevCertName": " dccdevcert ",

"DevPkeyName": " dccprivkey "

The highlighted name must match the name from the DCM config file for each type of certificate.

  • DCC RootCA
  • DCC Device Certificate
  • DCC private key

After the DCM has restarted, you should see the samples being delivered to the DCC :

When the above configuration is finished. The GateManager, Data Collection Module/SiteManager and Data Collection Cloud should be connected with these connections:
