Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

Control remotely placed multiple hololens device through rest apis

edited December 2018 in Questions And Answers

Hi Folks, I want to develop a microservices or app which actually can allow me to control hololens devices remotely (For example reboot, restart, get list of active process etc). I had a look over following dcoumentation , https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/mixed-reality/device-portal-api-reference , This list the possible operations you can perform through these apis, I tried to give it a try with following approach.

Connected my hololens device and desktop computer on same wifi network and accessed device portal using the ipv4 address of my hololens device, It allows you to access hololens device portal , on this dashbaord you can perform all operations, I want the same kind of functionality but all the operations must be carried out through my own dashboard or microservices (a nodejs web server, which can connect to hololens) , But there are some constraint that I came across.
1. You must be within same wifi network.
2. You must login to device portal and do the operations.

I tried to do it through rest apis But I wasnt able to do it.

Please note, I want to control (specially) reboot multiple hololens devices which are placed across the glob, How can i please make connection to those devices through my web sever?, how hololens device IP can map to domain over internet?
Am i missing somthing here or I am just thinking with wrong approach.

Pardon for any typos.
Please feel free to ask something for which you have doubt or not able to understand my intent for a specific statement. Thanks
