flespi HTTP channel protocol by Gurtam is used to receive messages in a POST HTTP request in the same format as a flespi stream with protocol HTTP. It can help you inject data into the flespi pipeline (like devices and streams) to handle your data from any telematics and IoT projects.
The body of the POST HTTP request should contain a JSON array with message objects. You may set JSON-path (dot-separated path to JSON-array of messages) if the HTTP body is a JSON object. Each message object should contain an ident string property plus any additional properties. You may set another field to use as an ident in the channel configuration. The value of timestamp property (if present) should be a number with Unix time, or UTC time string in full ISO 8601 format (YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ss).
It is now possible to apply a custom naming scheme to messages, accepted by the HTTP channel.
It can be used for:
- message parameter renaming
- excluding unnecessary parameters
- validating messages before storing
- picking direct parameters from complex JSON

ID of device that received a message
Name of device that received a message
ID of device type of device that received a message
