Integrations

Navigation Integrations

Integrations allow exchange data between the Lobaro Platform and other applications.

REST

Navigate to: Integrations -> REST

The API is located and documented at:
https://backend.lobaro.com/api

Access Tokens

All API calls must be authenticated with an access token. Access tokens can be managed on the REST Integration page.

Each token has a list of roles assigned to it.

Token roles:

  • network-server: Allows to write device data. Required for LoRaWAN Network Server Integrations.

Add the Token into the HTTP request Header:

  • Field: Authorization
  • Value: Bearer eyJhbGciOiJIU...

Receive data from a LoRaWAN network server

  1. Create an Access Token in the Lobaro Platform with the role network-server to allow write access for device data.
  2. Configure your network server to send data to the corresponding endpoint (see list below) using the token (e.g. Bearer eyJhbGciOiJ...) in the Authorization header field.
    Please consult the documentation of your network server for further instructions.

Platform REST Endpoints for network server integrations:

We also support other network servers on request, e.g. TTN, Element-IoT, Firefly, Actility, Loriot, ... Just ask!

Filter query parameters

Filters parameters can be appended to some requests in the form of f:<parameter>=<op>:<value> e.g. f:createdAt=gt:<timestamp> to filter by createdAt date.

The Value must be URL encoded e.g. a timestamp might look like gt:2000-01-01T02:37:00%2B01:00

The allowed <parameter> is specified for each endpoint separately.

<op> must be one of the following operators:

In Query Meaning
eq =
lte <=
lt <
gte >=
gt >

If no operator is given the default eq operator will be used.

HTTP (forwarding)

Navigate to: Integrations -> HTTP

Forward data from the Lobaro Platform to any HTTP(s) endpoint.

HTTP Method: The HTTP method to use for the request.

Target URL: Any reachable HTTP server endpoint.

Authentication: One of the following authentication schemes can be used:

  • Basic Auth: Adds Username & password to request headers.
  • Bearer Token: Adds a Bearer Token to request headers. Just put the Token (without Bearer prefix).
  • OAuth: Fetch a OAuth token with the given scope from a Token URL using a ClientId and Secret as BasicAuth credentials. The fetched token is used for all API calls and automatically refreshed when invalid.

Headers: List of headers to be set on HTTP request in the format: <FieldName>: <Value> (e.g. Authorization: Basic QWxhZGRpbjpvcGVuIHNlc2FtZQ==)

MQTT (forwarding)

Navigate to: Integrations -> MQTT

Forward data from the Lobaro Platform via MQTT Publish to any MQTT broker.

Broker URL: must be in one of the following formats:

  • mqtt[s]://host.domain[:port]
  • tcp[s]://host.domain[:port]

Default port for mqtt/tcp is 1883. Default port for mqtts/tcps is 8883.

ClientId: Used on MQTT connect. Default is: lobaro-{RND}. {RND} will be replaced by a unique random string.

Username / Password: Used to authenticate with the MQTT broker.

Topic: The MQTT topic to publish sensor data.

Note

Currently we only support username/password authentication for MQTT yet.
