ThingsBoard

When configured, the ThingsBoard integration will send device attributes and telemetry to the configured ThingsBoard instance.

Requirements

Before this integration is able to write data to ThingsBoard, the uplink payloads must be decoded. The payload codec can be configured per Device Profile. To validate that the uplink payloads are decoded, you can use the live device event-log feature. Decoded payload data will be available under the object key in the JSON object.

ThingsBoard will generate a Access Token per device. This token must be configured as a device variable in ChirpStack Application Server. The variable must be named ThingsBoardAccessToken.

Attributes

For each event, ChirpStack Application Server will update the ThingsBoard device with the following attributes:

  • application_id
  • application_name
  • dev_eui
  • device_name

In case any device tags are configured for the device in ChirpStack Application Server, these will also be added to the attributes.

Telemetry

Decoded uplink data is prefixed with the data_ prefix. Make sure to configure a coded in the Device Profile.

Device-status

Device-status is prefixed with the status_ prefix. The interval of the device-status requests can be configured through the Service Profile.

Location

Location data is prefixed with the location_ prefix. Please note that this is only available in case geolocation capable gateways are being used and ChirpStack Network Server is configured with geolocation support.
