Count provisioned devices by DPS

This post shows a way to find out how many IoT (Edge) devices have been provisioned by a specific enrolment group within the last x minutes. The solution could be much simpler if I just wanted to know how many devices are registering themselves. In this case the build in metrics are enough to get that information.IoT Hub Metrics The use case required a more sophisticated solution that is able to reflect the tenants, identified by tags.

And please remember the setup I used is for development only.

The out-of-the-box WSS navigation offers one level of navigation. The navigation elements can be configured in the site settings. There is a way to make it have multi level navigation, as MOSS does, by changing the DataSource. But this “hack” is not flexible, as you can not reorder the item within the navigation menu. While I was reading the post How to create your own Cascading Navigation using the ASPMenu control by Yvonne Harryman, the decision was made to build a custom navigation which supports multiple navigation levels.
