Connect a HTTPs destination

Learn how to connect your application through HTTPS
You can use KPN Things Destinations to forward your device data to any supported platform or destination. The tool Webhook.site is used for this tutorial. Although we have good experience with this tool, KPN is not responsible for the proper working of the tool.

1. Create test HTTPS endpoint

Go to https://webhook.site. Webhook.site is a service with which you can easily inspect incoming HTTP requests. When vising the site it will automatically create a unique HTTPS endpoint for you. Use the Copy to clipboard button that is highlighted in the screenshot below to copy the URL of your new endpoint.

2. Create your first Destination

Go to the Flows > My first flow and click Link destination
Choose Create a new Destination.
Select HTTPS endpoint as destination type.

3. Fill in your Destination Information

After selecting HTTPS Endpoint, fill in the following information:
  • Destination name: you can think of a good recognisable name for your first destination, like My First Destination.
  • URL: this should be the URL you just copied from webhook.site.
  • Shared secret: this is a kind of password that an application should use to verify that KPN Things sent the data to the endpoint. It should be at least 32 characters long and should contain at least an uppercase character, lowercase character, digit, and special character.

4. Test connection with test message

Send a test message, e.g. by using the Device simulator app. You should see incoming information on your webhook.

Congratulations! 🎉

You successfully set up your first IoT solution!
