MQTT not working

I start with MQtt. Installed the client and the broker. In MQTT.fx is see this:

so it’s working. But when I want to use the card “Receive topic triggers” the flow is not triggered. Nothing happend.


I have nothing in the “And” section, so the flow has tobe trigger when the state of the topic changed. Or am I wrong?

Moved to English.

Are you sure that the client is using the correct settings? It doesn’t look like it’s checking to see if the values that you enter are actually valid.

This client is use the correct settings. See the log:

20190829-10:53:02 successfully subscribed to topic /ESP_Doorbell/Switch1/State

I can’t reproduce the issue, it works fine for me with that particular topic.

Formally speaking, “so the flow has to trigger when the state of the topic changed” isn’t correct: it will trigger when a new message is sent to that topic, no matter what the value is.

This is the flow. I keep it simple for testing.

I use a switch to trigger. In MQTT.fx it works fine.

It doesn’t work with telegram. It does work with “send message to mobile”

Okay, so the problem is the Telegram app , not the MQTT client app :slight_smile:

With other flows Telegram works fine. It’s strange

Try a simpler Telegram card, one with fixed texts instead of using tags.

The telergram app crashed. It’s now working. Thanks
