The Data Forwards App allows you to configure the forwarding of your data. All Administrator Teams will automatically have access to the Data Forward App icon located in the top bar of the Dashboard. 

Note: If you do not have access, ask your organization's administrator to give you the appropriate permissions.

Step 1: Add Data Forward

Step 2: Input your Data Forward Destination

Input the Data Destination

The Destination for your Data Forward will determine the basic attributes of your Data Forward: the data to be sent, the URL to receive it, and how often you would like the data to be updated. Give your Data Forward a descriptive name.

To test and see how your data forward will come through, use RequestBin or Webhook Tester.


Headers are arbitrary key/value pairs that you can add to the data sent along with each HTTP request. These headers can provide important information about the data being sent. Use these according to the needs of your data application.

Save and Continue

Step 3: Select your Data Forward Channels


The Channels for your Data Forward will determine what data sources you will be drawing on for your Forward. Choose as many or as few channels as you'd like.
Note: If you scroll to the bottom of the list, you will be able to add all available data channels in the selected Node.


The numbers listed next to each module and channel indicate the exact identity of your data sources. SID refers to your sensor type, and indicates which physical sensor on a module is providing your data. The CID is your channel ID, which represents the unique identifier for your data source.

You can use these fields to identify unique sources of data, and they correspond to the SID and CID fields that show up in your JSON object. For more information on this subject, check out our help article on data forward structure.

Save and Continue

Step 4: Configure your Data Forward Permissions


Your Data Forward's permissions will determine which teams are allowed to view or modify/delete this data forward. At least one team must have all permissions.

Save and Click 'Done'

See the Data Forward Structure Help Article for detailed information of how to parse the data forward and examples of JSON packets.
