To simplify the integration with InfluxDB, webhooks can be formatted to align with Influx’s data API requirements.
- A user with access to the Coiote IoT Device Management platform and appropriate permissions
- A LwM2M device
- An InfluxDB account (you can create a free InfluxDB Cloud account)
Open your InfluxDB account.
Create a new Bucket for storing the time series data by going to: ↑ > Buckets.
Give the Bucket a name.
Copy the Bucket ID and save it to use later.
Create API Token#
Go to the API Tokens tab.
Create a new API token
Create a custom API Token
Preferably, create a custom API Token which has only access to the specific Bucket you just created. Make sure to select Read and Write rights.
Copy the API Token and save it for later.
Create webhook in Coiote IoT DM#
In your Coiote IoT DM, select: Integrations > Data Integration Center.
Select Add event handler.
Provide basic information such as the name and description, optionally enabling the option to activate the event handler after creation.
Select the events which will trigger the HTTP(S) requests.
Configure InfluxDB parameters#
Select the Influx data formatting option.
The URL address is composed of 3 parts:
The Influx URL e.g.:
You can find the URL in the address bar of your browser when using InfluxDB Cloud.
The InfluxDB API:
- The Bucket ID, starting with
When combined, the URL address looks something like:
For more information about the Influx API, visit Influx's API documentation.
Add the API token which you previously created in your InfluxDB account.
Use the Test event handler-option to validate the configuration of the HTTP request before creating the event handler. When performing such test, an event should arrive in your Influx bucket.
Click Next step and Add event handler to create the event handler.
Monitor events in InfluxDB#
After activating the event handler, go to your InfluxDB account and open your Bucket.
Add the following script:
SELECT * FROM "deviceEvent" WHERE time >= now() - interval '1 hour'
Press: "► RUN" to run the script.
If the integration is setup correct, the device events are shown in the table.
