Ubidots Node-RED Publish and Subscribe nodes not working


#1

In the article:
https://help.ubidots.com/en/articles/1440402-connect-node-red-with-ubidots

users are encouraged to download ubidots node-RED nodes.

In following the article, I enter the API token and I get indicators in the node-RED canvas that the nodes succeed in connecting.

But I don’t get back the data as expected.

If I continue along in the article, using the node-RED MQTT nodes, then I can publish and subscribe.

Anyone have knowledge about what might be going on?

Turns out (thanks to David at Ubidots) that the inject node’s data type must be declared to be JSON, not just the A-Z String type. This care is not needed for the native MQTT Pub/Sub to work.
