Overview

Soracom Lagoon is a customizable dashboard service that allows you to build detailed visualizations for your IoT application. Lagoon extends data collected on Soracom Harvest, and lets you easily visualize your application data without setting up any infrastructure.

Lagoon

Features

Lagoon is powered by Grafana, which generates interactive graphs, tables, lists, maps, and more, to fit a wide variety of application use cases, all without writing any code or complex SQL queries. While Harvest provides data collection and basic data visualization, Lagoon extends this with the following features:

Dashboards

Dashbaords provide a single-page, at-a-glance view of your application status. Each dashboard is made up of multiple panels, and each panel can be customized to display a graph, table, list, image, heatmap, map, and more. Each panel provides powerful configuration options that let you quickly transform raw data from your devices into visualizations that are easy to understand.

Alerts

Lagoon provides data monitoring and alert functionality for any panel in your dashboard. Simply add an alert rule to a panel, and specify the threshold(s) that should trigger an alert. You can then choose to receive a notification by email or on Slack, or integrate it with another web application by using a webhook.

Collaboration

Lagoon also provides user management functionality, allowing you create users with read/write or read-only permissions to your dashboards, separate from your Soracom account. You can easily share dashboards with team members or customers without having to provide access to your Soracom account.

License Packs

The Lagoon Pro Plan can be further extended with optional license packs:

Switching Plans

All Soracom accounts have access to the Lagoon Free Plan at no additional charge. To begin using the Free Plan, simply start a subscription for the Free Plan.

You can upgrade your Lagoon subscription at any time by clicking the Change plan button from the SORACOM Lagoon management page. Plans are region-specific. When upgrading a plan, ensure that you are upgrading your Lagoon plan for the Global or Japan region as needed.

Once you have upgraded to the Pro Plan, you can add License Packs as needed by clicking the Manage License Packs button from the SORACOM Lagoon management page.

In order to downgrade a Lagoon plan, you must delete any additional dashboards, alerts, users, or settings that apply to your current plan type.

If you no longer need the Maker or Pro plans, you can return to the Free plan by first cancelling your Lagoon subscription, and resubscribing to the Free Plan.


Users

Lagoon provides two levels of user access to dashboards:

Each user can access dashboards by logging into Lagoon with their user email address and password.

Permissions

By default, editors and viewers will be able to access all Lagoon dashboards in your account, with their respective read/write and read-only permissions.

The Pro Plan allows you to customize per-user access for each dashboard using Dashboard Permissions. When using Dashboard Permissions, each dashboard can be configured to allow different levels of access for each user:

If a dashboard is configured so that all users have No Access, each user will inherit its default role (read/write or read-only) permissions.


Limitations

While Soracom Lagoon is built on Grafana, there are additional limitations or restrictions that differ from other Grafana services:
