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 Disruptive Technologies as a device 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.

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:

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.

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.
Insert the device ID accordingly and save the device. On the DT cloud in Sensors & Cloud Connectors, the device ID is displayed as Sensor ID.
Your DT device will now be displayed on the Asset Inventory Overview.
