Migrating my existing ThingSpeak channel to new MQTT server
1 view (last 30 days)
I created a new MQTT device attached to my existing ThingSpeak channel. Then modified my application to use the mqtt3.thingspeak.com server, following the python example given. The application appears to publish data to the server successfully without any exception. However, the channel fields do not appear to update. The old app using the original MQTT server still appears to work for a while and then stops updating.
Do I need to remove the old channel and create a completely new one and create a new device before linking them?In other words do I have to completely unlink the old channel before I can publish my data and use it invisualisations?

If you have 2 devices publishing to the same channel, one with the legacy mqtt connection and another with mqtt3 connection, but are both publishing at the maximum rate allowed for your account, only the data published by one of them will be accepted. The rate limit is enforced by the channel and not the protocol used to update the channel.
