Using MQTT

Here, to add option to dropdown list user need to send data in given format on given MQTT topic. No need to provide <account_id> while providing the MQTT topic. The JSON object will be as below.


// 'labelkey' and 'labelvalue' is set as LabelKey and LabelValue in widget form.

Using Action

Here, to add option to dropdown list, output of the action should contain key-value pair with 'labelKey' and 'labelValue' keys. User can also update the widget either onLoad or periodically by providing refresh interval.

Dropdown widget does not support any event.


If we configure Dropdown Widget as below:

  1. Label Key - labelkey

  2. Label Value - labelvalue

  3. Fixed List - Disabled

  4. Multiselect -Disabled

and set source type for widget as MQTT and topic configured is 'data'. And if we publish following JSON array over 'data' topic then Dropdown Widget will look as shown in image.

// Data over configured MQTT Topic

    "labelkey": "wolf bike",
    "labelvalue": 50
    "labelkey": "Monster bike",
