Can I communicate directly from my edge device/gateway to ThingWorx via MQTT? If so, is there any documentation on configuring this connection?
Christian Acosta: Yes, you can check out our MQTT extension for details available on ThingWorx Marketplace.
Durgesh Patel Are there any examples of this extension being utilized? There aren't many details on that page or in the help center.
Christian Acosta: You can refer the URL which demonstrate usage of MQTT if that helps build understanding. There is subtitle you might have to follow as video is not in English. ThingWorx: MQTT Part1 Getting started - YouTube
You can also check existing community thread for more details :
Using MQTT protocol in ThingWorx
I followed the material, but where do I point the MQTT broker on my device/laptop/Linux box to publish data to?
the documents say something like this:
mosquitto_pub -h mythingbox -t /topic_branch/Value -m 20
mythingbox should be a real URL or IP Address right?
I also have the same question. Did you solve it?
-h is defining the hostname. It defaults to localhost.
-p is defining the port. It defaults to 1883 for non-TLS connections and 8883 for TLS connections.
