In this tutorial, you will learn how to connect the cloud application of Disruptive Technologies (DT) to akenza. To connect the DT cloud to akenza, we will use a HTTPS endpoint as a data connector on the DT cloud and HTTP as a device connector on the Data Flow on akenza.

Create a Data Flow

Go to "Data Flow" in the left-side menu and select "Create Data Flow". Select HTTP as a Device connector and Disruptive Technologies as a Decoding Type.
DT HTTP connector
Proceed with selecting your desired DT Device Type and Output Connector to define the data destination accordingly. Find out more about Output Connectors here.
DT Device Type

Create a Data Connector on the DT cloud

Copy the newly created Uplink URL including the Uplink Secret of your device connector from your Data Flow on akenza as follows:
1
https://data-gateway.akenza.io/v3/capture?secret=<Uplink-Secret>
Copied!
Go to API integrations - Data Connectors on your DT cloud account and create a new Data Connector. Insert the copied Uplink URL in the field of the Endpoint URL and save the Data Connector with an appropriate name.
Data Connector on DT cloud
The DT cloud data connector is now connected to the Data Flow on akenza.

Create a DT device on akenza

Proceed with the creation of your DT device. Go to Asset Inventory on akenza and select "Create Device". Give a name to your device and optionally a description, tags, and a custom field. Select your newly created Data Flow and proceed with the "Next" button. Generate a device ID accordingly and save the device. Your DT device will now be displayed on the Asset Inventory Overview.
As we have already a preset device ID, we need to replace the generated device ID on akenza with the preset one. Select therefore your newly created device from the Asset Inventory on akenza. Select More - Edit, insert the given device ID which is displayed on your sensor overview on the DT cloud. The ID is displayed as Sensor ID.

Your device is now created and is receiving data. Incoming data can be viewed on the Device Detail Page on akenza by selecting your DT device on the Asset Inventory Overview.
Congratulations, you have successfully connected the DT cloud to akenza.
