In Azure IOT Device Portal, how to change data field names?

The sample comes with temperature and humidity as data fields. Although I replaced the data with my own different fields, the names remain the same.

I cannot find a simple rename column option. How do I change it?

  1. In the code, you need change the name in DeviceRuleDataFields class, for example, I changed "Humidity" to "HumidityEdit", look at this picture: enter image description here
