[Solved] Connecting from an IoT Gateway

gateway

#1

Trying out a hardware gateway where I have an option to use cloud services.
I’m trying to make it connect to Losant.

I see 3 options:

  1. MQTT, but their package is hardcoded to use “Retained messages”, which your platform don’t allow, so I can’t get that to work.
  2. REST, but the only way to authenticate is with a username and password, no place for a token, but maybe that could work.
  3. TCP/IP, not sure if this is supposed to be only within a LAN, since it defaults to use port 55065. I don’t see a way to enter user/password, but instead the option to use TLS and certificates.

#2

Replying to my own issue is kind of sad, but I’m guessing using webhooks might be the easiest option?


#3

Webhooks would work well for option 2 with username and password. You can also create an Experience Endpoint if you want the URL to be more customized (e.g. your own custom domain and SSL certificate).
