Step 2 - Create Backend Connection on TPX

Since the Qubitro connector will be used to send collected data into the Backend (i.e. qubitro.com), a new connection should be created at TPx.

At Hello LoRaWAN® and Thingpark cookbook, an HTTP connection was used to send collected data to the webhook for monitoring the data.

In this activity, you going to create a connection to Qubitro (qubitro.com) using TPX as shown in the figure. Type of the connection will be Qubitro.

1

To create a TPx connection, select CREATE under the category of CONNECTIONS.
2

Select TPX as connection type.
3

Select Qubitro as connection type as shown at the figure.
4

Please enter a name for the connection. In this activity you can use Actility Qubitro.
5

For Project ID*: Please enter PROJECT ID Copied at Step 1.
6

For WebHook Signing Key: please enter Signing Key copied at Step 1.
7

When click to "CREATE" button, you will notice that new connection added to connection list

You must check if new TPx definition (i.e. ActilityQubitro)  is correct and TPE can access to the Backend Service (i.e. Qubitro) properly

1

Select the new connection (ActilityQubitro) from the connections list in order to access details of the new connection.
2

Since no device use that new connection, active device count, uplink and downlink counts are 0.

If all definitions are correct, you will see icon at the right top of the screen. So that the TPx connector successfully connected to the target system which is the test MQTT broker at mosquito.org
