Using an external source

One simple way to write data into a Quix topic, is to use the prebuilt connector called External source.

To add an external source:

  1. Go to the pipeline view.
  2. Click + New in the top right corner of the view.
  3. Select External source.
  4. In Output select the topic you are going to publish to, or add a new topic with + Add new.
  5. In Name type any suitable name, such as "Laptop CPU Load".
  6. Click Add external source.

The external source now appears in the pipeline view as a reminder (visual cue) as to the nature of the source generating the data for this topic.
