Use from Heroku

Provisioning the add-on

CloudMQTT can be attached to a Heroku application via the CLI:

$ heroku addons:add cloudmqtt
-----> Adding cloudmqtt to sharp-mountain-4005... done, v18 (free)

Once CloudMQTT has been added a CLOUDMQTT_URL setting will be available in the app configuration and will contain the canonical URL used to access the newly provisioned CloudMQTT service instance. This can be confirmed using the heroku config:get command.

$ heroku config:get CLOUDMQTT_URL
mqtt://user:pass@broker.cloudmqtt.com

After installing CloudMQTT the application should be configured to fully integrate with the add-on.

Dashboard

The CloudMQTT dashboard allows you to monitor your current connection and message traffic statistics.

The dashboard can be accessed via the CLI:

$ heroku addons:open cloudmqtt
Opening cloudmqtt for sharp-mountain-4005...

or by visiting the Heroku apps web interface and selecting the application in question. Select CloudMQTT from the Add-ons menu.

CloudMQTT can be removed via the CLI.
