Introduction to Ingresses

Ingresses in the Twin Engine allow the Hark Platform to ingest telemetry data telemetry from different sources and either set Model Properties, or raise Events against a Model.

Ingresses use Connectors to connect to different protocols and services to allow for the Twin Engine to ingest telemetry data. Click here to get an Introduction to Connectors.

When creating an Ingress, you can define multiple, or dynamic, mappings to be able to ingest telemetry for multiple Models without having to create an Ingress per Model. This is allowed via our powerful Mapper system which provides multiple ways for you to get Model ID's and other information out of the telemetry sent to the Hark Platform.
