Webservice or REST api for eclipse mosquito

Hi there,

i am relatively new to the topic of MQTT brokers and I can’t really find any helpful answers to my questions here in the forum.

One of our customers has set up a server and uses Eclipse Mosquitto and the MQTT broker.

Is there a web service or a REST API that we can use to receive messages from the server (e.g. all registered devices) or send messages to it (e.g. a message for a device)?

Is there a WebSocket service?

Does the installation support HTTP push?

Many thanks in advance


The regular open source broker does not support REST.
If your customer is willing to upgrade to a paid version of Mosquitto then interacting with the broker via REST and a specific MQTT API is possible.

I think this would help your use case.
