Azure IoT Data Mapping¶
Data Mapping and Transformation is one of the powerful features of Connect iPaaS. When you create a workflow certain attributes of your trigger application are available to the action application for data mapping while making API calls. These attributes can be mapped to the specific attributes of the action application.
This powerful capability not only allows field mapping but it also allows complex transformation using Excel-style functions to apply hundreds of formulas and operations. The choice of Excel-style function makes data mapping on Connect iPaaS a breeze for business users who are already well versed with Microsoft Excel formulas.
Example Scenario with Azure IoT Trigger¶
In the example workflow, shown below, Azure IoT is the trigger application. You can access the attributes of the Azure IoT event in any of the application actions while designing your workflow.
As shown in Figure 1, we map the parameter from Azure IoT "New Event or message is received" trigger to the Microsoft Teams "Send Message to the Channel" action. The
IoT data received from your IoT device is sent as a
Message on the Microsoft Teams channel.
