Creating a MQTT event receiver 

For instructions on creating a MQTT event receiver, see Configuring Event Receivers.

Configuring adapter properties

Specify the Adapter Properties, when creating a MQTT event receiver using the management console as shown below.

MQTT input event adapter properties

After entering the above adapter properties, select the Event Stream to which you want to map the incoming events, and the Message Format which you want to apply on the receiving events. Also, click Advanced to define custom input mappings based on the Message Format you selected. For more information on custom input mapping types, see Input Mapping Types.

You can also define the respective adapter properties of the event receiver based on the transport type within the <from> element of the event receiver configuration in the <PRODUCT_HOME>/repository/deployment/server/eventreceivers/ directory as follows.
