Application Server

  • I have attached a device to send data and can confirm the data is arriving at IotCreators platform.
    I tried out the application server functionality using the example with beeceptor and all works well.

    Now I want to forward the data to as a further test.
    Similar to these steps:

    I thought I could have just replaced the url to Beeceptor but I keep getting an error that the URL is invalid.
    I then tried to add this extra URL via the API and I got a positive response back from the server so I am assuming I now have two application servers configured?
    Is my understanding correct that I cannot view or change these application server settings via the portal nor the API?

    Since I have no data arriving at the destination I wanted to troubleshoot the configuration and verify that data is being sent but I don’t see any logging possibilities on the site.

    Am I missing something? How are others working with the platform?

    I think that you did everything right. Something has changed at All Things Talk’s end. We received more complaints about integrations with ATT.

    @Eric-Barten already contacted them, but I will give it another try next week.

    It took some time, but we’ve tested it and it should work again

  • @afzal_m Thats good news, but I don’t see any change in functionality yet. As in I don’t see data arriving at AllThingsTalk. I need to test something else first before I draw conclusions

  • @Colin-Chalmers ok, I’ve just checked a couple of things. I can send and am receiving data on IoTCreators site. I have configured the Application Server to use the AllThingsTalk callback. I have configured a device in the AllThingsTalk platform. However no data seems to be coming in and the device remains in the state inactive.

    Hmm ok but the error “invalid URL” is gone right?

  • @afzal_m Apologies, I may have spoken too soon.
    After playing with the payload formats on AllThingsTalk I do now see information coming in. Not quite exactly what i expected but I guess that’s down to misconfiguration on my part. So I’d say yes the connection works, parsing of data I need to look into.

    And yes changing the URL on the application server works which is good news! 🙂
