  1. The emqx-edge version is greater than or equal to v3.1-rc.3 click to download

  2. Edge's network environment can establish communication links with cube.emqx.io:1883

  3. Register EMQ account and create a new edge message server in Cube

  4. Fill in the configuration in Cube on Edge and start the emqx-cube plug-in

Note: It will not affect the normal use of other Edge features without the connection of cube.
