Data Flows define how device data is processed and stored in akenza. To create a Data Flow, select "Create Data Flow" within the Data Flow menu.
To create a Data Flow, select "Create Data Flow" within the Data Flow menu. Select the Device Connector of your choice. The following Device Connectors are available:
Choose your Device Type to extract, transform and normalize the data sent from the device. Akenza provides an extensive device type library with 100+ ready-to-use device types.
If you don't find a suitable Device Type or don't want to process the payload, select "Pass through". The payload will be forwarded without changes. You can create a Custom Device Type for your device later if you want.
Chose one or multiple Output Connectors for your Data Flow. Output Connectors define what is done with the data created by the device types. There are several options to choose from:
Storing the data in the akenza database
Sending parts of the data in an e-mail to a recipient
Forwarding the data to a 3rd party system for further processing or storing
