Get the gateway EUI
To register the gateway, you will need its Gateway EUI/UID. This can be found in the Manager UI. Connect to your gateway and check the LoRa > Forwarder page. Under the Gateway information section you will see the ‘Gateway UID’.
Create a gateway in the The Things Stack Console by following the instructions for Adding Gateways. Copy the API Key to a notepad, as you will need it later.
