Connector types supported

To ensure easy integration of UnaConnect within the Client’s infrastructure,UnaConnect offers different types of Connectors. Both low-level protocols and dedicated solutions are supported. A simple form allows a user with sufficient permission to create a new connector.
By offering the open-standard protocols HTTPS, MQTT, and UDP, UnaConnect is natively compliant with most of the IoT dashboards and solutions on the market.
To simplify the integration of the messages into various solutions such as IoT dashboards, UnaConnect also includes custom-made Connectors:
  • Splunk
  • AWS IoT
  • More will be added in the future such as Microsoft PowerBI.

The HTTP/HTTPS Connector has several elements customizable:
  • header: the header of the request. It allows you to add authorization header, etc…
  • httpMethod: values "POST" and "GET" are the type of the request
  • url: the destination used to send the data
  • body: define a specific format for your body
Each of these elements can integrate variables. To use them, they must follow the format: {variable}. For example, if the connector is linked to an UnaSense device, {temperature} will be replaced by the current temperature.
⚠️ The variables must be a string.
The last element is {data} which will add all the data received as an object.
Other values are available such as timestamp, deviceType, deviceId and deviceName.
