EFM & Actility

Hello,

 

I have devices registered in Actility ThingPark Wireless (NS in the cloud) and I have several ways to send my data, but I don't know exactly how to configure that in Actility neither in EFM.

On Actility side i have the following possibilities : http or kafka.

1- Http : if I chose http, I can post to posthere.io and I retrieve my data ==> how can I configure http on the EFM side so that I can post my data the same way I do it on posthere.io ?

2- Kafka : I'm not sure to see how to configure that.

 

Rgds,

Cyril

Re: EFM & Actility

For option 1, have you tried using stringloader? As for option 2, there is a Kafka dslink. What are you looking at with respect to the Kafka option?

Hello Rishikesh,

For option1, I have to start low : what DSLink do I need to use, and Do I configure it ? what do I have to configure before going to the dataflow.

 

For option2, I understand that with the Kafka DSlink, EFM can act as a Cluster, a publisher or a subscriber.

For option 1, you can use the dataflow editor itself. See screenshot below. image.png

 

For option 2,  there are two dslinks for Kafka. I am yet to explore that in detail, but seems like the version 0.10.x has additional options as compared to the other one. I will need to check further on that..

Regarding Option1, I need to read http post from the Actility NS on tcp port 50001 and not 80.

What do I need to configure and where ?

In the strLoader block, the "path" property allows you to GET or POST to a custom URL with basic auth and custom port.

Example: http://<username>:<password>@<Hostname/IP>:<Port>/.....
