Doc info icon
Important note

Please note that this guide is for ThingsBoard versions prior v2.0.

Old rules and plugins functionality is replaced by new rule engine components (rule chains and rule nodes).

Please review new rule engine documentation to learn how to adopt new functionality.

We are doing our best to modify this guide to v2.0 components. Contributions are welcome.


Telemetry plugin is responsible for:

  • persisting attribute updates to internal data storage;
  • persisting timeseries data to internal data storage;
  • provides server-side API to query and subscribe for data updates.

Since Telemetry plugin functionality is critical for data visualization purposes in dashboards, it is configured on the system level by a system administrator. Advanced users or platform developers can customize telemetry plugin functionality.


There is no specific configuration for this component.

Server-side API

Telemetry plugin API description is available in corresponding attributes and telemetry guides.


As a system administrator, you are able to review plugin example inside Plugins->System Telemetry Plugin.
