Welcome to Xively

We have built on all the Feedback from our great users over the years to deliver the world’s best platform for bringing connected products to market. You’ll find all your favorite features, but more importantly, get introduced to the Connected Product Development Process: Develop, Deploy, and Manage.

Account Migration

  1. Your old Cosm account still works the same. Log in with your usual credentials.
  2. Your Feeds are still there, and now labeled as “Legacy Feeds”. Full product management means letting you work with products and their Feeds, rather than just Feeds alone.
  3. Your privacy settings are as airtight as ever. Your public Feeds are still public (and prettier than ever), and your private Feeds are still private. Public Feeds are now indexed by major search engines (Google and Bing), to be easily found.
  4. The old API will still work, but you’ll want to switch to the new https://api.xively.com API as soon as possible in order to get the new security and features we’ve built, and will continue to roll out regularly.
