Remote Integrations

Introduction

It is possible to execute any ThingsBoard Integration remotely from main ThingsBoard Edge instance. This guide contains step-by-step instructions how to launch ThingsBoard integration remotely. For example, we will launch HTTP integration and push data over remote HTTP integration to ThingsBoard Edge.

See deployment options for more general information.

Prerequisites

We assume you already have a ThingsBoard PE Edge instance up and running, and connected to the Cloud.

ThingsBoard cloud configuration steps

Converter and Integration templates are created on the Cloud, so please log in as Tenant administrator to cloud instance.

Before creating the Integration template, you need to create an Uplink converter template in Converters templates page. Uplink is necessary in order to convert the incoming data from the device into the required format for displaying them in ThingsBoard Edge. Click on the ‘plus’ and on ‘Create new converter’. To view the events, enable Debug. In the function decoder field, specify a script to parse and transform data.

While Debug mode is very useful for development and troubleshooting, leaving it enabled in production mode can significantly increase the disk space used by the database since all the debug data is stored there. It is highly recommended turning the Debug mode off after debugging is complete.

Example for the Uplink converter:

// Decode an uplink message from a buffer
// payload - array of bytes
// metadata - key/value object
/** Decoder **/
// decode payload to string
// var payloadStr = decodeToString(payload);
// decode payload to JSON
var data = decodeToJson(payload);
var deviceName = data.deviceName;
// Result object with device attributes/telemetry data
var result = {
   deviceName: deviceName,
   deviceType: 'default',
   attributes: {
       model: data.model,
   },
   telemetry: {
       temperature: data.temperature
   }
};
/** Helper functions **/
function decodeToString(payload) {
   return String.fromCharCode.apply(String, payload);
}
function decodeToJson(payload) {
   // covert payload to string.
   var str = decodeToString(payload);
   // parse string to JSON
   var data = JSON.parse(str);
   return data;
}
return result;

Step 2. Create Remote Integration

Now that the Uplink converter template has been created, it is possible to create an integration.

Step 3. Save Remote Integration credentials.

Let’s copy-paste the integration key and secret from the integration details, we’ll use them later during Remote integration installation steps.

Step 4. Assign Integration to Edge.

Once converter and integration templates are created, we can assign Integration template to Edge. Because we are using placeholder ${{remoteHttpIntegrationUrl}} in the integration configuration, we need to add attribute remoteHttpIntegrationUrl to edge first. You need to provide IP address and port of your HTTP remote integration as remoteHttpIntegrationUrl attribute. By default, remote HTTP integration uses 8082 port. We are going to use the same port in the demo, and IP address is going to be set as IP of the machine where remote integration service is going to be started. Once attribute added, we are ready to assign integration and verify that it’s added.

  • Add remoteHttpIntegrationUrl attribute to Edge and set value as your remote HTTP integration http://IP:port
  • Click Manage Integrations button of Edge entity
  • Assign Integration to the Edge
  • Login to your ThingsBoard PE Edge instance and open Integrations page - placeholder is going to be replaced by attribute value

Remote integration installation steps

Choose your platform and install

One can install ThingsBoard Integration via Docker, Debian or RPM packages. Please use one of the next steps.

-e "INTEGRATION_ROUTING_KEY=YOUR_ROUTING_KEY"  -e "INTEGRATION_SECRET=YOUR_SECRET" `
--name my-tb-pe-tcp-udp-integration --restart always thingsboard/tb-pe-tcp-udp-integration:3.4.1PE

Where:

  • EDGE_IP_OR_HOST_ADDRESS - is the host name or IP address of your ThingsBoard PE Edge;
  • 9090 - is the integrations port of your ThingsBoard PE Edge. It is configured in tb-edge.yml using INTEGRATIONS_RPC_PORT env variable;
  • YOUR_ROUTING_KEY - placeholder for your integration routing key obtained on Step 3;
  • YOUR_SECRET - placeholder for your integration secret obtained on Step 3;
  • docker run - run this container;
  • -it - attach a terminal session with current ThingsBoard remote integration process output;
  • -p 10560:10560 - connect local port 10560 to exposed internal 10560 port for the integration
  • -v tb-pe-tcp-udp-integration-logs:/var/log/tb-tcp-udp-integration - mounts the host’s dir ~/.tb-pe-tcp-udp-integration-logs to ThingsBoard remote integration logs directory;
  • --name tb-pe-tcp-udp-integration - friendly local name of this machine;
  • --restart always - automatically start ThingsBoard Integration in case of system reboot and restart in case of failure.;
  • thingsboard/tb-pe-tcp-udp-integration:3.4.1PE - docker image.

Remote HTTP integration validation

To send an uplink message, you need HTTP endpoint URL from the integration.
Let’s log in to ThingsBoard Edge and go to the Integrations page. Find your HTTP integration and click on it. There you can find the HTTP endpoint URL. Click on the icon to copy the url.

Important! Please make sure that your machine is able to access machine where remote HTTP integration is running, and port 8082 is not blocked by any firewall rules.

Use this command to send the message. Replace $DEVICE_NAME and $YOUR_HTTP_ENDPOINT_URL with corresponding values.

1
curl -v -X POST -d "{\"deviceName\":\"$DEVICE_NAME\",\"temperature\":33,\"model\":\"test\"}" $YOUR_HTTP_ENDPOINT_URL -H "Content-Type:application/json"

The created device with data can be seen in the section Device groups -> All on the Edge:
