How do I show stream data in the dashboard?

I am receiving some data from an IoT device in the cloud, which is routed to some service. Now how do I show this continous data in my mendix dashboard application? Do I need some IoT connector? I am using Azure as cloud vendor. Does mendix have support for that?

Hi Yatin,

The best module to use with any IoT Broker is the MQTT module on the appstore:

The module allows you to connect your Mendix app using MQTT protocol. In the module you can subscribe to topics from the broker and execute a microflow every time a message is received. You can also publish messages back to the broker.

If Azure doesn’t support MQTT i would advice using the Mendix native REST capabilities to pull the data from Azure




Did you have already created a consumer for your IOT service which populate your data in the app?
