Re: New to Thingsworx

i am currently follow instruction from https://community.ptc.com/t5/ThingWorx-Developers/MQTT-support-in-ThingWorx/td-p/509655 but it seems to be difficult to follow due the new gui. Can anyone give more updated instruction as i am not very tech savy.

Re: New to Thingsworx

You should start with downloading the MQTT extension https://marketplace.ptc.com/listing?q=mqtt#!/list/page/1/search=mqtt 

 

And then use the extension following this article.

Re: New to Thingsworx

I have seen this before. Let me give it a try again.

Is there a guide to using MQTT instead of using MQTTConnection and MQTTSubscriber? I've heard that MQTT is able to do the job of both.

Re: New to Thingsworx

The jobs are done in different Things, they are independent so people don't get confused.

Re: New to Thingsworx

ok I think i got the hang of how to configure it. Thxs for the help! On a side note, Do you know how to disable mosquitto on startup on windows? 

Re: New to Thingsworx

That's totally a third party product story, I don't have much information, you can turn to Google for help.
