The “Connections” menu can be accessed either via an inbox or directly via the connection icon in the top right corner of your App.

- Connections can be added to an inbox and direct the message flow from a source to a Streamsheet inbox.
- A Connection can be used as a reference in a functioning publishing/requesting data. (e.g. =MQTT.PUBLISH(MQTT_CONNECTION!,JSON(A1:B2),”example/topic”)

We are adding more and more connection types over time. If you miss a connection you would like to have supported, contact us!
Create a new connection by clicking the “+” icon in the top right corner and choosing a protocol for your connection.
