I am happy to announce that the first Mendix – MindSphere integration is available! See the documentation for more details: https://docs.mendix.com/developerportal/deploy/deploying-to-mindsphere 


Think this should be provided by a collaboration of Mendix ( or Mendix Partners) + Siemens,

I hope they would even write a complete guide for "how to go from nothing to a "Siemens mindsphere + mendix" setup working together on different cloud foundry providers like SAP or IBM.

Unfortunately as a "individual" I don't have access to most of the resources required to get started.

Right now I feel the community lacks the following to get started on this:

  • Free "development" cloud foundry setup with Siemens MindSphere and Mendix running. And knowledge of how to actually deploy these and maintain these. I tried deploying a project to IBM cloud recently and I just couldn't get it to work. https://docs.mendix.com/deployment/cloud-foundry/ says IBM is still under development. And quite frankly I'm not gonna hook my own creditcard up to all these platforms for developing these modules.
  • Nor do I have access to these different mindconnect elements: https://developer.mindsphere.io/concepts/concept-mindconnectelements/index.html 
  • Lack of knowledge of how MindSphere works, which API's are important and which are less important. As far as I can tell MindSphere consists out of a large stack of microservices/API's. So someone should shed some light on which API's are most required etc for prioritizing development of ready to use Modules in the AppStore.




There is no module available yet. The current way to connect to MindSphere is to use the Native REST capabilities in Mendix. All MindSphere APIs are REST-based and can be used that way.

We will develop deeper integrations into MindSphere in the future, including ways to get started, documentation, training, etc.


As far as I know there is no module *yet* for connecting to Mindsphere. Keep an eye on the Appstore for updates in the future


Any updates on this?
