Change device type using WLP file

Topic: Change device type using WLP file

Hi there

I want to retranslate some units from one server to another server. I export all units and import them to new server. Units are in different types and now we have to change all units types to Wilaon Retranslator. Is there any way to change only unit types with WLP file? Any trick? When we want to import a file with Wialon Retranslator device type then in result device unique ID and phone number are empty.

Hi,

This is happened to me as well. I cant find solution as well. Wialon should create a software for it.

Thank

Hello hhamedk

Today it is possible to edit hardware type in multiple units via API requests or through import tool (if you have separate file for each unit) and manual interactions on web interface ofc.
However, if you don't have such hardware available on your second Wialon Local license, new units will be created with Wialon Retranslator hardware type.

unit/update_device_type

You need to pass id of Wialon Retranslator (on WH it is 12152) and resend unique id of the device.
