      Hello, I am trying to program my mayfly off the simple_logging example code, starting with the on board sensors.

      I am can get the program to build and upload but when I run it, I get a message

      It will still calculate the proper numbers for each of these variables. But I am unsure how to get them to have an unique UUID. When I try to add my Y510 yosemitech turbidity sensor It will do this as well.

       

      this is the code I have for the yosemite sensor and the on board sensors

      In my code I have the yosemitech sensor set up but in the serial monitor it does not address the sensor at all? Why would that be. I am very new to programming especially the Mayfly data logger and platformio.

      When you register a site on Monitor My Watershed you can set it up with various sensor parameters, and once you’ve got all of them entered on the website, you click the “View Token UUID List” button at the top of your site page and you’ll get a list of all the UUIDs in the exact format and order in which you need to paste them into your sketch.  If you’re not planning to transmit data to Monitor My Watershed or upload the file manually, then it’s okay to leave them as generic, non-unique UUIDs, but since you’ve got a unique registration token and sampling feature listed in your posted sketch, then I assume you’re intending to send data to MMW.

      I am going to using just the SD card for my project. I thought I would need a unique UUID regardless so that was my first attempt at trying for that. So if I am using just the SD I can ignore the Non-unique UUID message? what about the invalid UUID, can that be ignored too?

      You can ignore the warnings to the serial monitor about the UUIDs if you never intend to send data to MMW.  The warnings are just there to help people in case they were using the generic ones when they didn’t intend to.  But since that’s what you want to do, it’s okay to ignore the warning.
