Properties Description
TOPIC ID Defines the internal ID used by MCT.
Display Name Currently not in use.
Topic Type Defines the topic type. Select the subscribe type topic. The MQTT Client subscribes to a topic published by another client and links it to Metasys objects, which updates the present value.
Path Defines the first part of the path definition seen in a broker. See Path definition.
Payload Type
Select a predefined payload type. To select a standard predefined payload type, from the payload type list, select one of the following:
  • Minimum
  • Compact
  • Extended
  • Custom

For MQTT Client configuration, click the ellipsis to add a new definition of standard predefined payload type.

Single Pnt Payload Select to append the placeholder $(identifier) to the topic path. As the identifier is unique, a point related topic for all assigned Metasys objects is created and sent. Publishes multiple messages, with one attribute set for each publish.
Active Clear this check box to temporarily disable an unused topic.
