New STO tier pricing - $1 per year per device
Customers have made it clear that Azure IoT Central’s simplified pricing model is a fantastic way to streamline budgeting for large deployments and deliver predictable monthly costs for IoT solutions. However, the existing pricing tiers don’t meet the needs of devices sending just a few messages per day. To address this, there’s a new pricing tier at less than $1 per year per device. This new ST0 tier is designed for devices sending messages as frequently as every two hours. This enables new scenarios such as fleet management, smart metering, smart appliances, smart buildings, as well as the breadth of asset and condition monitoring or predictive maintenance.

The jobs API preview lets you to programmatically create, execute, retrieve, rerun, resume, and stop jobs to streamline bulk device management. You can use the API to configure a job in IoT Central and trigger a rerun operation. Jobs can be triggered based on a variety of different variables from both inside and outside IoT Central.
