var TOKEN = 'Your token'; //added default token of my account
var VARIABLE = 'Your variable'; //added variable which I wanted to display over map

var key = 'Mapbox access toaken' //added access token of my mapbox account;

function getDataFromVariable(variable, token, callback) {
  var url = 'https://industrial.api.ubidots.com/api/v1.6/variables/' + variable + '/values';
  var headers = {

Thanks! It worked.

Would it be possible for you to share an example of placing a device on Mapbox?

To place a device on the Mapbox you should create the HTML canvas widget for a variable which have the coordinates of your device using the variable id. To send the coordinates you have to include them as context in a variable called “position”, “gps” or “location”. For more information reference the Ubidots REST API Reference. Also, the following article will serve you as guide.
