Automating Data

Automating Data

Hi All

 

I am running a Data simulator in Node red. The simulated data is in JSON format and is being generated every 10 mins. This data is being sent to ThingWorx platform via MQTT. However, the data transfer is manual at present, once the MQTT thing is refreshed only then the property(JSON basetype) is updated with the most recent payload. I would like to automate this process - as soon as data is generated in Node Red the property should also be updated with it. Request you all to help me on the probable steps to accomplish this?

 

Regards

Ketan

Hi @ketanaga

 

From reading through the case notes, it appears you were able to resolve your issue by implementing an autorefresh widget.  If that is the correct solution, please mark this post as the Accepted Solution for the benefit of others in the community.

Hi @ketanaga 

 

Can you please provide the config settings and mappings for the MQTT thing you set up?

Hi

 

The config looks something like this

 

clientIDFormat : /Thingworx/EnergyIO/EnergyMeter+Data

format : /Thingworx/EnergyIO/EnergyMeter_Data/Energy,Datetime,Weather

 

Energy, Datetime and Weather are all subscribers, subscribing to different topics test/test1,2,3

Hi @ketanaga

 

We're not seeing the full config in your last post.  Did you follow these instructions for configuration?

 

What version of ThingWorx are you running?  The link above is for 9.x.

 

Regards.

Hi @ketanaga

 

Take a look at this Tech Tip to see if it will help.  If not, we'll need to open a case to work through the issue.

Hi @slangley 

 

Thanks for providing an alternative. However I still have to manually hit the Refresh button to get the most recent data from Node-Red.

Hi @ketanaga

 

Please let me know if you would like me to open a case on your behalf.  If you prefer to open the case yourself, please provide the case number under private message so I can track it.

 

Thanks.
