  • 1.  Socket connections with Datalinq

    Posted 29 days ago
    Hi all,

    I am using datalinq to query a REST json api which is regularly updating live data.

    Is there a way to create a socket connection between Datalinq and the REST api so that I am not having to constantly poll the api? This works fine of course, but it would save us from having to hit the server with tens of thousands of requests over the duration of a production.

    HI  Brendan.
    In this case I recommend you use dynamic URLs in the Datalinq server.

    The Datalinq server shall send a request after your scene starts.
    Set the "Update Interval (ms)" to 0.
