Removal of “Auto observe” switch object from GUI in Cumulocity portal

Auto observe” switch object needs to be deleted from GUI in Cumulocity 9.16 (or 10.5).


This switch is located in Device Management page > Device type category > Device protocol item > any of protocols.


This feature appears as we choose any kind of device protocols and go to the bottom to the “Functionality” list of it.


There is a respective part of code which is needed to be eliminated from web page. It was found and attached.

There is not a necessity to change anything connected with it. We just would like to avoid visibility of it, considering that observe toggle is switched off by default.


Options from our perspective:

1/ let us know regarding an opportunity to switch off this feature somehow;

2/ to allow as to hide this part of code and say where a file with this code is located for this change;

3/ to hide this part of code by your support.

    Hi Ivan,

    Thank you for the feedback. I am sorry but we do not plan to deprecate the auto-observe functionality and hence cannot remove it from the product. If you don't plan to use this feature, I recommend to remove this functionality within your customized UI.
