Bluetooth Mesh Shell

The Bluetooth mesh shell subsystem provides a set of Bluetooth mesh shell commands for the Shell module. It allows for testing and exploring the Bluetooth mesh API through an interactive interface, without having to write an application.

The Bluetooth mesh shell interface provides access to most Bluetooth mesh features, including provisioning, configuration, and message sending.

Prerequisites

The Bluetooth mesh shell subsystem depends on the application to create the composition data and do the mesh initialization.

Application

The Bluetooth mesh shell subsystem is most easily used through the Bluetooth mesh shell application under tests/bluetooth/mesh_shell. See Shell for information on how to connect and interact with the Bluetooth mesh shell application.

Basic usage

The Bluetooth mesh shell subsystem adds a single mesh command, which holds a set of sub-commands. Every time the device boots up, make sure to call mesh init before any of the other Bluetooth mesh shell commands can be called:

uart:~$ mesh init

This is done to ensure that all available log will be printed to the shell output.

Provisioning

The mesh node must be provisioned to become part of the network. This is only necessary the first time the device boots up, as the device will remember its provisioning data between reboots.

The simplest way to provision the device is through self-provisioning. To do this the user must provision the device with the default network key and address 0x0001, execute:

uart:~$ mesh prov local 0 0x0001

Since all mesh nodes use the same values for the default network key, this can be done on multiple devices, as long as they’re assigned non-overlapping unicast addresses. Alternatively, to provision the device into an existing network, the unprovisioned beacon can be enabled with mesh prov pb-adv on or mesh prov pb-gatt on. The beacons can be picked up by an external provisioner, which can provision the node into its network.

Once the mesh node is part of a network, its transmission parameters can be controlled by the general configuration commands:

  • To set the destination address, call mesh target dst <Addr>.

  • To set the network key index, call mesh target net <NetKeyIdx>.

  • To set the application key index, call mesh target app <AppKeyIdx>.

By default, the transmission parameters are set to send messages to the provisioned address and network key.

Configuration

By setting the destination address to the local unicast address (0x0001 in the mesh prov local command above), we can perform self-configuration through any of the Models commands.

A good first step is to read out the node’s own composition data:

uart:~$ mesh models cfg get-comp

This prints a list of the composition data of the node, including a list of its model IDs.

Next, since the device has no application keys by default, it’s a good idea to add one:

uart:~$ mesh models cfg appkey add 0 0

Message sending

With an application key added (see above), the mesh node’s transition parameters are all valid, and the Bluetooth mesh shell can send raw mesh messages through the network.

For example, to send a Generic OnOff Set message, call:

uart:~$ mesh test net-send 82020100

Note

All multibyte fields model messages are in little endian, except the opcode.

The message will be sent to the current destination address, using the current network and application key indexes. As the destination address points to the local unicast address by default, the device will only send packets to itself. To change the destination address to the All Nodes broadcast address, call:

uart:~$ mesh target dst 0xffff

With the destination address set to 0xffff, any other mesh nodes in the network with the configured network and application keys will receive and process the messages we send.

Note

To change the configuration of the device, the destination address must be set back to the local unicast address before issuing any configuration commands.

Sending raw mesh packets is a good way to test model message handler implementations during development, as it can be done without having to implement the sending model. By default, only the reception of the model messages can be tested this way, as the Bluetooth mesh shell only includes the foundation models. To receive a packet in the mesh node, you have to add a model with a valid opcode handler list to the composition data in subsys/bluetooth/mesh/shell.c, and print the incoming message to the shell in the handler callback.

Parameter formats

The Bluetooth mesh shell commands are parsed with a variety of formats:

Parameter formats

Type

Description

Example

Integers

The default format unless something else is specified. Can be either decimal or hexadecimal.

1234, 0xabcd01234

Hexstrings

For raw byte arrays, like UUIDs, key values and message payloads, the parameters should be formatted as an unbroken string of hexadecimal values without any prefix.

deadbeef01234

Booleans

Boolean values are denoted in the API documentation as <val(off, on)>.

on, off, enabled, disabled, 1, 0

Commands

The Bluetooth mesh shell implements a large set of commands. Some of the commands accept parameters, which are mentioned in brackets after the command name. For example, mesh lpn set <value: off, on>. Mandatory parameters are marked with angle brackets (e.g. <NetKeyIdx>), and optional parameters are marked with square brackets (e.g. [DstAddr]).

The Bluetooth mesh shell commands are divided into the following groups:

Note

Some commands depend on specific features being enabled in the compile time configuration of the application. Not all features are enabled by default. The list of available Bluetooth mesh shell commands can be shown in the shell by calling mesh without any arguments.

General configuration

mesh init

Initialize the mesh shell. This command must be run before any other mesh command.

mesh reset-local

Reset the local mesh node to its initial unprovisioned state. This command will also clear the Configuration Database (CDB) if present.

Target

The target commands enables the user to monitor and set the target destination address, network index and application index for the shell. These parameters are used by several commands, like provisioning, Configuration Client, etc.

mesh target dst [DstAddr]

Get or set the message destination address. The destination address determines where mesh packets are sent with the shell, but has no effect on modules outside the shell’s control.

  • DstAddr: If present, sets the new 16-bit mesh destination address. If omitted, the current destination address is printed.

mesh target net [NetKeyIdx]

Get or set the message network index. The network index determines which network key is used to encrypt mesh packets that are sent with the shell, but has no effect on modules outside the shell’s control. The network key must already be added to the device, either through provisioning or by a Configuration Client.

  • NetKeyIdx: If present, sets the new network index. If omitted, the current network index is printed.

mesh target app [AppKeyIdx]

Get or set the message application index. The application index determines which application key is used to encrypt mesh packets that are sent with the shell, but has no effect on modules outside the shell’s control. The application key must already be added to the device by a Configuration Client, and must be bound to the current network index.

  • AppKeyIdx: If present, sets the new application index. If omitted, the current application index is printed.

Low Power Node

mesh lpn set <Val(off, on)>

Enable or disable Low Power operation. Once enabled, the device will turn off its radio and start polling for friend nodes.

  • Val: Sets whether Low Power operation is enabled.

mesh lpn poll

Perform a poll to the friend node, to receive any pending messages. Only available when LPN is enabled.

Testing

mesh test net-send <HexString>

Send a raw mesh message with the current destination address, network and application index. The message opcode must be encoded manually.

  • HexString Raw hexadecimal representation of the message to send.

mesh test iv-update

Force an IV update.

mesh test iv-update-test <Val(off, on)>

Set the IV update test mode. In test mode, the IV update timing requirements are bypassed.

  • Val: Enable or disable the IV update test mode.

mesh test rpl-clear

Clear the replay protection list, forcing the node to forget all received messages.

Warning

Clearing the replay protection list breaks the security mechanisms of the mesh node, making it susceptible to message replay attacks. This should never be performed in a real deployment.

Health Server Test

mesh test health-srv add-fault <FaultID>

Register a new Health Server Fault for the Linux Foundation Company ID.

  • FaultID: ID of the fault to register (0x0001 to 0xFFFF)

mesh test health-srv del-fault [FaultID]

Models

Configuration Client

The Configuration Client model is an optional mesh subsystem that can be enabled through the CONFIG_BT_MESH_CFG_CLI configuration option. This is implemented as a separate module (mesh models cfg) inside the mesh models subcommand list. This module will work on any instance of the Configuration Client model if the mentioned shell configuration options is enabled, and as long as the Configuration Client model is present in the model composition of the application. This shell module can be used for configuring itself and other nodes in the mesh network.

The Configuration Client uses general message parameters set by mesh target dst and mesh target net to target specific nodes. When the Bluetooth mesh shell node is provisioned, given that the BT_MESH_SHELL_PROV_CTX_INSTANCE option is enabled with the shell provisioning context initialized, the Configuration Client model targets itself by default. Similarly, when another node has been provisioned by the Bluetooth mesh shell, the Configuration Client model targets the new node. In most common use-cases, the Configuration Client is depending on the provisioning features and the Configuration database to be fully functional. The Configuration Client always sends messages using the Device key bound to the destination address, so it will only be able to configure itself and the mesh nodes it provisioned. The following steps are an example of how you can set up a device to start using the Configuration Client commands:

  • Initialize the client node (mesh init).

  • Create the CDB (mesh cdb create).

  • Provision the local device (mesh prov local).

  • The shell module should now target itself.

  • Monitor the composition data of the local node (mesh models cfg get-comp).

  • Configure the local node as desired with the Configuration Client commands.

  • Provision other devices (mesh prov beacon-listen) (mesh prov remote-adv) (mesh prov remote-gatt).

  • The shell module should now target the newly added node.

  • Monitor the newly provisioned nodes and their addresses (mesh cdb show).

  • Monitor the composition data of the target device (mesh models cfg get-comp).

  • Configure the node as desired with the Configuration Client commands.

  • NetKeyIdx: Key index of the network key to delete.

mesh cdb app-key-add <NetKeyIdx> <AppKeyIdx> [<AppKey(1-16 hex)>]

Add an application key to the Configuration database. The application key can later be passed to mesh nodes in the network. Note that adding a key to the Configuration database does not automatically add it to the local node’s list of known application keys.

  • NetKeyIdx: Network key index the application key is bound to.

  • AppKeyIdx: Key index of the application key to add.

  • AppKey: Optional 128-bit application key value. Providing a hex-string shorter than 16 bytes will populate the N most significant bytes of the array and zero-pad the rest. If omitted, a random value will be generated.

mesh cdb app-key-del <AppKeyIdx>

Delete an application key from the Configuration database.

  • AppKeyIdx: Key index of the application key to delete.

On-Demand Private GATT Proxy Client

The On-Demand Private GATT Proxy Client model is an optional mesh subsystem that can be enabled through the CONFIG_BT_MESH_OD_PRIV_PROXY_CLI configuration option.

mesh models od_priv_proxy od-priv-gatt-proxy [Dur(s)]

Set the On-Demand Private GATT Proxy state on active target, or fetch the value of this state from it.

  • Dur: If given, set the state of On-Demand Private GATT Proxy to this value in seconds. Fetch this value otherwise.

Solicitation PDU RPL Client

The Solicitation PDU RPL Client model is an optional mesh subsystem that can be enabled through the CONFIG_BT_MESH_SOL_PDU_RPL_CLI configuration option.

mesh models sol_pdu_rpl sol-pdu-rpl-clear <RngStart> <Ackd> [RngLen]

Clear active target’s solicitation replay protection list (SRPL) in given range of solicitation source (SSRC) addresses.

  • RngStart: Start address of the SSRC range.

  • Ackd: This argument decides on whether an acknowledged or unacknowledged message will be sent.

  • RngLen: Range length for the SSRC addresses to be cleared from the solicitiation RPL list. This parameter is optional; if absent, only a single SSRC address will be cleared.
