Configuration

Enabling Funnel will incur fees based on the number of requests made. Refer to the Pricing & Fee Schedule for more information.

Soracom Funnel settings are found in Soracom Air or Soracom Inventory group settings.

Funnel settings are shared among all device types within the same group. This means that you can configure Funnel for one device type (cellular, Sigfox, LoRaWAN, or Inventory), and all other device types within that group will also use the same Funnel settings.

If you want to use different Funnel settings for different device types, simply create multiple groups each with different Funnel settings, and assign your devices accordingly.

To configure Funnel, open the settings page of the group that you want to configure.

Underneath the Basic Settings tab, click the SORACOM Funnel panel to expand its settings.
