MQTT Broker integration using REST API

MQTT Broker Integration
Ranjith kumar DSM June 18, 2018

MQTT Broker integration with your application is very crucial for any process / production management application in Industrial and Customer implementation.  MQTT broker was built with options to store data into any back end data storage via the custom data store. By storing data into the storage which is processed by your application, you will be able to visualise it the way you want. You can use the ready to use plugin to store data to Elastic and MongoDB. We are working hard to make the MQTT Broker work more seamlessly with any of your application. Today we are happy to announce the availability of APIs in our MQTT Broker through which your IoT Application can manage your edge devices via the MQTT Broker.

MQTT Broker integration with REST API:

We can carefully selected the most useful communication that is needed between any application and its broker to provide the first version of the API. Following are the list of interactions available now

  1. Send a message to any specific device.
  2. Send a message to all devices based on a subscription.
  3. Add a MQTT Device Authentication username and password dynamically from your application.
  4. Remove a MQTT Device Authentication String from the MQTT Broker
  5. Get the list of active devices connected right now to the MQTT Broker.

For more details on the API, refer to the  MQTT Broker API page 

Unsolicited Messages:

MQTT Broker now supports sending of Unsolicited messages to the Edge Device. Yes, you read it right. You can now send messages to any specific device for a topic for which the client is not already subscribed to. This is an enhancement to support device development platforms like Telit. This can be achieved by sending the http call to /clientsend with the target device, topic provided by the device for receiving unsolicited messages, message, QoS and Retain as required.

We have also added an advanced custom implementation inside the /lib folder of the product to send the data received into your Python class file to process it in a better way.
