Getting started

Setup the environment

You can find more informations on (how to run an instance)[/documentation/getting-started] or just run docker-compose up

By default the web-service listen on http://localhost:9090 while the MQTT broker on mqtt://localhost:1883

This documentation uses the jq command line tool to extract JSON values.

Login and authentication

The default access credentials are username: admin and password: admin

The first operation is to login with an user and get an api token

RUSER=`curl -XPOST -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
-d '{ "username": "admin", "password": "admin" }' http://raptor.local/auth/login`

RTOKEN=`echo $RUSER | jq -r '.token'`
RUSER_ID=`echo $RUSER | jq -r '.user.uuid'`

echo "User id $RUSER_ID with token $RTOKEN"

You will get back a session token and your user details

    // ... plus other details

With the token it is now possible to query the Data and Object Management API and start sending your data streams!

The login token is available in $RTOKEN and will be valid for 30 minutes

For example to list all the registered objects

curl -XGET -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
-H "Authorization: Bearer $RTOKEN" \

Accessing the MQTT broker

To access the broker open an MQTT (or Websocket) connection to http://localhost:1883 using your username and password.

Token based access is supported by setting an empty username (or a single char if required by your client) and the token as password.

You can use any library supporting MQTTv3.1.1 like mqtt.js or Eclipse PAHO
