Discovering data in Cumulocity

This section describes how to view the integration data in the Cumulocity UI.


  • When an integration is successfully created and running, all boolean values from message will be published as Events.

To observe events in the Cumulocity instance UI

  • Go to Devices > All devices > (select device) > Events

Understanding event objects

Example of an expanded event:

Every event from thingshub contains the following data fields:

  • header: consists of value path and value reported ("binary_input/0/present_value/value reported true" in example above)

  • device: device reported event ("sm-nke-s0")

  • time: datetime event was sent by thingshub ("Time 15 Jan 2019 13:56:06")

  • server time: datetime event was created in Cumulocity ("Server creation time 15 Jan 2019 13:56:09")

  • type : indicates type of event. For events from thingshub it's always "Type thingshub_Event"

  • properties :  full message event was generated from ("Properties {"RawPayload":"110a000f00551001","binary_input":{"0":{"present_value":{"value":true}}}}")
