MQTT integration


Hi C3 Community!
Do you know if we can integrate data in the platform (7.8) from a MQTT broker which isn’t AWS IoT ?
I found the type MqttPubSubClient, can you please give a generic example on how to use it ?

Thank you !



Did you check the documentation page for MQTT setup, the url should be something like

Basically to setup , you need to:

  1. Acquire the certificate for MQTT communication. This certificate is generally distributed by the MQTT server.
  2. Build up MqttAuth by using the certificate.
  3. Establish MqttPubSubClient through MqttAuth
  4. Use MqttPubSubClient to communicate with Mqtt server for publishing, subscribing


Hey Bachir,
Thank you very much, I saw the doc but I was wondering if it worked only for AwsIotThing or for all types of MQTT brokers. I’ll try when my customer’s MQTT broker will be operational.



I think the example talk about AwsIotThing just as an example on how to get a certificate as the rest has nothing to do with AWS IoT.
I believe you should be able to use another broker along its certificate and do the MQTT specific staff starting from step 2.
