Data Query Designer

The Time Series Query feature helps you define and use complex data sets composed from the time series data that was ingested by the Waylay platform.

More information: Data Query Designer

Provisioning portal

This new licensable module is now available for everyone. This is our zero-coding portal to provision device meta data and tasks to be used by technicians on-site.

Channel Payload Converters

Using Apache Velocity template technology, you can now (optionally) assign a converter script to a Waylay Channel (MQTT, Azure, AWS, …). In this script you can transform the data or extract useful data before data is pushed to the Waylay environment.

More information: Payload Converters

Azure EventHub Channel Support

If you have an Azure IoT Hub or an Azure Digital Twin environment, you can use our Azure EventHub Channel to forward the data to your Waylay Environment.

How to use it: Azure EventHub Channel
