Datapoints - mathcoll/t6 Wiki

A DataPoint is a fact, a measure coming from a Sensor at a precise moment of time. Once multiple Datapoints are stored, it become a serie Datapoints, hence the timeseries reference. :-)

Posting multiple (up to 3 measurements) from the same payload is also available on t6. This feature is compatible with Sensor Data Fusion, including all Preprocessors. Unfortunately, mixing both Signature & Encryption + Multi measurements is known as a feature restriction and cannot be used.

Data retention

t6 api is allowing to customize the data retention policy by adding an optional parameter to payload: retention. t6 allows the following retentions values :

  • retention1d, for a 1 day data retention ;
  • retention1w, for a 1 week data retention ;
  • retention4w, for a 4 weeks data retention ;
  • retention1y, for a 1 year data retention ;
  • autogen, for an infinite data retention - this is the default value when payload is not setting this retention.

Additionally, each Flows can set a default retention policy that will be used when payload is not defining the value.
