Creating point sautomatically from MQTT topics


  • Hi

    I would like to setup Mango MQTT source so that points are automatically created for every topic in the topic filter.

    Example for the bellow I would like that two points, sinWave and zoneTemp, would automatically be created in Mango after declaring the data source (without having to add them manually)

    In noticed that if there is at topic that match the filter but there is currently not point for it Mango report a warning to console, meaning that Mango is aware of the topics availible.

    The name of the point should be same as name of the topic and type should be numeric.

    Thanks
    Nathan

    How can I set this up? With scripts?

    This is not something that is currently supported in Mango. But it is certainly a valid feature request.

    I would suggest for now that you use an external tool to export a list of topics then use the CSV data point import tool to bring them into Mango.

    Might add point through API from external prog as well (example phyton)
