Automating IOT Platform configurations

Idea Details:

We are trying to automate deployment of IBM IOT Platform service, to achieve below scenarios:
Scenario 1 : Provisioning new service in Bluemix
Scenario 2 : Configure historian service by using Message Hub

As per scenario (1), we are already using IBM CLI tool to successfully automating provision new iotf-service.


Pain Points:

But couldn't find much info about how to automate Scenario (2), which is described below,

But this needs to be done manually, and we want to automate it.


Current workaround:

Using IOT web dashboard to do Message Hub integration. 


Proposed solution(s)
Provide any of below methods to do automation.
* IBM CLI plugin or
* any other means to do above mentioned scenario (2), programatically


Benefits/value this idea has

This will enable fully automated way of deploying application on IBM cloud, related to IOT platform.

It will be easy to write Auto installers which has provisioning and configurations capability.


Users impacted and how often are they impacted

Devops people will have a hard time when doing auto installer and auto deployments to IBM Cloud.
