Can the device type field be configured using the Device Cloud API?
The Device Type (dpDeviceType) field cannot be changed (along with the dvVendorId field) from the Device cloud as it is a manufacturing assigned value which can only be displayed.
With that being said, a value can be assigned at the time of device registration (only if using the DeviceCore API to register); however the device would overwrite it when it actually gets connected. So it would only be temporary until the device connects.
