How to troubleshoot `no data available` in IoT device defender metrics?


Followed the steps below to configure IoT device defender metrics.

  • Created security profile.
  • Attached several thing groups as target in the security profile.
  • Added the following additional metrics to retain.
    • Cloud metrics : messages sent, messages received scoped by dimensions
  • Did not add any behaviors
  • Checked the defender metrics in IoT console under specific things which belonged to the corresponding target thing groups.

Note: The device is publishing messages to IoT core using a custom python program based on paho-mqtt library.

Metrics are not available. It says "No data available".
