So I’m currently querying an external api, I’m not happy though as i cannot get refresh rates low enough without hitting limits.
I’ve been trying to read up on web hooks but the information out there is very vague.
I have a few questions which if anyone could answer that would be great.
1: We used to able able to authenticate against openhabcloud using username:firstname.lastname@example.org, however this form of auth has been depreciated. My api provider doesnt use any form of Auth so i am limited to authenticating in the url, can this be done?
2: If we can get connected, using the rest api is there anyway to accept a custom json payload into for instance a string item as i am not able to change the response i recieve from the api?
3: How do bindings that connect to external api’s handle refreshes, i see nest has a streaming channel but what about those that dont?
4: Is there any other way to set up a webhook without using myopenhab.org, dynamicdns/portforwarding and a static html page for instance as an endpoint?
Any information on how to go about this would be most appreciated.
