Have anyone configured Owntracks through a private openhab-cloud? Wondering what it takes to point owntracks to a private openhab-cloud instead of openhab at home/office behind a firewall.

Yes I did, but it has nothing to do with the Obenhab-cloud itself

I have a private root server with the obenhab-cloud and a “secure” mqtt server installed on.
My smartphone has the Owntracks app with the secure mqtt server configured.
At home i have a raspberry Pi with openhab. (there I have another internal mqtt server running)
openhab knows both of the mqtt servers and my owntrack items use the secure mqtt server.

Thanks for the reply and time taken to nicely illustrate it @Felix_Raetz

My implementation is through http, not through mqtt. So I may have to do something more at the private openhab-cloud side than that is mu guess.
