Hi

Does anyone know if it's possible to send a HTTP request or alert of some form if a data point is *not* recorded within a certain period? I'd like to receive an alert if my device fails to log a data point.

Thanks

Yes. We have an app called React. React has an option to check your channel for no data inserted within a selected time frame. This will execute a ThingHTTP request when the condition is true.

I've given REACT a try, but it doesn't seem to make the HTTP request as expected. Here are my settings:

The channel has no data submitted at all, but shouldn't the HTTP request still be made? I've already tested the Thing HTTP app which works fine.

 

Thanks

Just opened forum to check if anyone has issue with no data check, and here you go. For me it stopped working about a week ago. Tried to recreate react, but no success so far. Maybe there is some issue on thingspeak.

Edit: I tried to change timings a bit and react worked now.Confused

Mine still refuses to make the HTTP request, so I'm not sure what's happening.

Hi Mun,

Are you able to trigger the thingHTTP from a browser or POSTMAN?

The syntax is 

GET https://api.thingspeak.com/apps/thinghttp/send_request?api_key=THINGHTTP_APIKEY


The react settings look appropriate, you could try increasing the test frequency, or decreasing the update time just to see if it goes.

Hi

 

Yes, I can trigger the thingHTTP perfectly. I've tried various test frequencies already though. Is REACT meant to be stable?

Mun,

I was able to reproduce the problem and the team is looking into it.  Thanks.

The problem with react on no data has been fixed. I have tested the condition, and it now works again for me. Can you go ahead and test it and let me know if your thingHTTP is called by the react when there is no data?
