Updating the agent
Formant supports over-the-air update of the agent. To update an agent, go to the device page
|From the burger menu select Settings⇒ Devices ⇒ to edit the device|
Under the General tab, go to Summary section -> Agent version
Agent version displays the current version of the agent along with a button to update the agent to the newest version. Click on the Update button to update the agent and then click Save at the bottom right corner of the page.
If the button is disabled and says Update disabled, it means that the agent deployed on the device does not support OTA. This could either be because OTA is disabled on the agent or because you are running an old version (< 0.74.30) of the agent.
To enable OTA on the agent, please visit installing agent from the terminal.
To update an older version of the agent, run the following commands by logging into the device.
Update the agent from terminal
