Cloud Event Element
The cloud event element is used to send collected data to Atmosphere, which can then be displayed through the platform’s Dashboard or Devices areas.
The cloud event element is located in the Element Toolbox within Studio’s Embedded and Application Views. When a cloud event element is added to the canvas, it creates a coupled version in the project’s Cloud View that bridges the element’s functionality between Cloud View and the original view it came from.
- A cloud event element used between Application View and Cloud View connects to Atmosphere over BLE using the project’s interface (via the Atmosphere app) acting as a gateway between the device and the Atmosphere.
- A cloud event element used between Embedded View and Cloud View connects directly to Atmosphere over Wi-Fi and bypasses the project’s interface entirely.
The cloud event element is only available within Embedded View for devices that support Wi-Fi in Atmosphere. Likewise, some properties of the cloud event element are only available on specific views, and are notated as such below.
The following properties can be changed for the cloud event element:
The name of the element.
Instance (Embedded version only)
The HTTP driver instance the device uses to send data to Atmosphere. This is used for cloud events between Embedded View and Cloud View.
The following triggers are available to execute events from within the cloud event element:
Execute an event when the source element connected to the cloud event triggers.
Event Sent (Application View only)
Execute an event when the cloud event sends data to Atmosphere.
Event Received (Cloud View only)
Execute an event when the cloud event receives data.
The following abilities are available for the cloud event element when its source element triggers:
Trigger the element(s) that follow the cloud event element.
Send Event (Application View only)
Send data to Atmosphere.
