The device emulator is a powerful tool for developers to send data to buckets as if it would be sent by a real device. The emulator is intuitive and requires just a few clicks to validate and send your data package.
To access the device emulator go to Device section, select the device, and then click on the Emulator tab.
TagoIO accepts the following fields in the JSON object:
variable, value, unit, time, serie, location and metadata.
To send a data from the emulator, you will need to:
- build a data payload that should contain at least the 'variable' field (pick one example from the list),
- edit the fields of the payload
- click onto send the payload
You can also send data in raw formats.
A raw payload using for example a CSV format must be parsed in order to be accepted by TagoIO (check out the Payload Parser).
Always make sure that the device is Active.
