Receive a Pushed Value from Thingworx

I would like to receive a value as and when it is updated in Thingworx to my python code. Is there any possible way out other than continuous pinging of that particular thing?

Re: Receive a Pushed Value from Thingworx

There are some options, e.g. using MQTT to broker values back and forth. Also using one of the Edge SDKs makes implementing value pushes easier as they take away most of the programming effort. This will be done over ThingWorx's AlwaysOn Protocol.

 

You could also implement a DataChange Event that is sending a value to the device (e.g. via a REST API call - in the ContentLoaderFunctions) whenever a value is updated / changed.

 

Cheers,
