Platform Version 4.5.0

[4.5.0] 2022-06-28


  • New administration feature called ‘Proxies’ (starting on MEDIUM instances), which allows creating custom proxies to plugins or local services, i.e, redirect TCP or UDP traffic to Node-RED (for example, for COAP devices), or provide access to local InfluxDB2 install

  • New plugin InfluxDB2 (starting on MEDIUM instances, as it requires Proxies feature). It supports accessing the InfluxDB2 GUI and API for custom configurations, dashboards, alerts, ingestion, etc.

  • A plugin install can now initialize any resource in the console, i.e., InfluxDB2 plugin automatically initializes a proxy

  • Plugins can now be defined without a task, i.e., the InfluxDB2 plugin does not deploy any additional container


  • Swagger API Generation (tested on proxies API)
  • Plugin installs from File Storages
  • Left menu now correctly displays the current selected plugin


  • Some fixes on dashboards using image widget and map widget with geofences
  • Devices API v2 not respecting the v2 specification (wrapping response inside ‘out’)
  • Loading bucket data view without access to bucket config (required for loading tags information), i.e., when a member does not have permissions for ReadBucketConfig
  • Plugins API now supports “id” query parameter, required for Plugin selector

Fantastic! always innovating! Congratulations to all for the constant improvement of the platform!
The new ‘Proxies’ open up new development possibilities.

Hi @George_Santiago, thanks for the feedback!

Yes, custom proxies allow different integrations, i.e., custom APIs over Node-Red, support different protocols like COAP, etc.

Enjoy, and I have a few suggestions:

USER screen:

  • Add Properties for Users to register JSON with information about email address, Telegram number, Whatsapp number, sms, Tokens for sending messages for Android or iOS…
    NOTE: This information can be used in NodeRed to send notifications/messages registered as endpoints or via API (HTTP)…

LOGIN screen:

  • Option to translate the English texts of the login screen to other languages.
    NOTE: More information in this post: Change screen text of "Login" and "Forgot Password"

  • Option to get smarphone token (Android, iOS…) to send targeted Push Notification to specific users


  • Bind the widget value to a properties or bucket variable, via JSON or dashboard.
    NOTE: It is possible to make this link with the name or description of the widget, but the suggestion is to insert this in the value fields.

  • Remove unnecessary digits when viewing widgets (Time Series and Tarcometro)

  • Add horizontal lines representing alert levels on time series charts.

  • Night mode via button or timer/scheduler

  • Add buttons to copy JSON from the Panel and color code the widgets.


  • Inform the date and time in the pluging console messages/log

USER screen:

  • Inform the Name, Asset Type, Asset Group and Project of the device on the screens: Status, Properties, API, Terminal…

Justification: Device identification is difficult when only the “Device_ID” is informed in the upper bar Ex: “Devices / b2d8f99bd2455dea / Properties”. Especially when using UUID rules for Device_ID.
Just a simple example (below), but it would help a lot. It would be important to reproduce the Name, Asset Type, Asset Group and Project information on the other screen: Properties, API, Terminal…
NOTE: Same information replicated also on the bucket screen

Include the “project” field/key in the “device_resource_stream” JSON:
NOTE: It would help a lot in the NodeRED flow, especially when you want to consult users linked to the Project to trigger alerts/notifications
