Validate integration

If you completed all the steps, then Pilot Things is ready to receive uplink data and ChirpStack Application Server is setup to forward data for your Device, using the Authorization Token for authentication.

The last step is to let your device send some data and validate that this data is received by Pilot Things. You will find this data under the Activity tab when navigating to the Device within Pilot Things.
