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: 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 :
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?
-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.
