Introduction

The Streaming Writer API allows you to stream data into the Quix platform via HTTP endpoints or SignalR. It’s an alternative to using our C# and Python SDKs. You can use the Streaming Writer API from any HTTP-capable language.

The API is fully documented in our Swagger documentation. Read on for a guide to using the API, including real-world examples you can execute from your language of choice, or via the command line using curl.

Preparation

If you plan on using the HTTP endpoins, then you’ll need to know how to authenticate your requests and how to form a typical request to the API.

If you would rather use the SignalR api, which is suggested for high frequency data streaming, then see SignalR setup.
