ThingsBoard PE Feature
Only Professional Edition supports Platform Integrations feature.
This tutorial will show how to push downlink messages to devices connected via Sigfox integration when user updates device attribute using ThingsBoard UI
In this tutorial we will get a shared attribute of specified device using SigFox integration. SigFox backend will be simulated using Postman.
We assume you have completed the following guides and reviewed the articles listed below:
We will operate with device that has name “Thermostat A” which will be automatically created in the process of integration work.
Note: a shared attribute of this device has to be created.
In order for integration to work, downlink and uplink converters should be created.
Uplink converter should look like this:
Downlink converter should look like this:
Integration should look like this:
|Name||New SigFox Integration|
|Uplink data converter||New uplink SigFox converter|
|Downlink data converter||New downlink SigFox converter|
In this section, we explain the purpose of each node in this tutorial. There will be one rule chain involved:
The following screenshots show how the above Rule Chains should look like:
Create Node C as shown on the image above in the root rule chain to forward attribute update messages to the imported rule chain.
The following section shows you how to create this rule chain from scratch.
Go to Rule Chains -> Add new Rule Chain
New Rule Chain is created. Press Edit button and configure Chain.
In this rule chain, you will create 2 nodes as it will be explained in the following sections:
|Name||Check status field|
|Name||Push to integration|
|Integration||New SigFox Integration|
The initial root Rule Chain has been modified by adding the following node:
Add the Rule Chain node and connect it to the Message type switch node with a relation type Update attributes. This node forwards incoming Message to specified Rule Chain To SigFox integration.
Select the Rule Chain field: To SigFox integration.
The following screenshot shows how the final Root Rule Chain should look like:
Now when “status” attribute is updated, integration will send downlink message.
