What’s new in HiveMQ Edge 2023.9

HiveMQ Edge is a gateway that utilizes an edge-optimized MQTT broker to connect multiple endpoints and streamline your operations seamlessly. By standardizing edge data and providing support for a diverse array of IT/OT connections, this software offers a scalable and flexible solution for directing data into your core infrastructure.

HiveMQ consistently incorporates user feedback to enhance their product and introduce new features.

Discover the latest release updates below.


HiveMQ Edge’s internal notifications are now accessible from the web application. On the main navigation panel, you will now see a new button (notification bell) that indicates whether you have new notifications waiting for your attention.

HiveMQ Edge Notifications

How it works

Clicking on the notification button immediately displays the relevant notifications, as “popup” messages listed in the top-right-hand corner of the web application. The type of notifications will vary from your usage and installation but will be labeled by severity (e.g. warning, error) and contain a description to allow you to act on them.

How it helps

The notifications system covers the operation of your HiveMQ Edge installation and will indicate sources of problems or concerns. As of version 2023.9, notifications are still limited to a handful of verifications (e.g. upgrade of the system available, credentials to change), but will be extended as the software functionalities expand.

Workspace: Metrics and Adapter Grouping

Since it was introduced with version 2023.5, the HiveMQ Edge Workspace has always been anticipated to be a central operation management tool for the edge topology.

We are very pleased to announce the introduction of two new features that support this aim: adapter grouping and extended observability

HiveMQ Edge Workspace Grouping

How it works

Every adapter connection created in HiveMQ Edge is visible on the Workspace page of the web application, where its connections with the broker and other elements of your topology are visualized. The view is interactive and you can access adapters or their link to the Edge, to access their status and a summary of their activity by way of a customisable reporting tool.

You are now able to group several adapters to create a new context. Be it related to geographical location or related to a particular sensor data workflow that’s relevant to your system.

Beyond the visual effect of organizing your adapters on the Workspace, grouping also allows you to observe this specific context in detail. The reporting tool now offers charts to combine and visualize the metrics associated with every adapter in the group.

HiveMQ Edge Workspace Metrics

How it helps

The grouping of adapters introduced in this version of HiveMQ Edge is a great way to visualize complex scenarios where elements of the topology could be grouped for the formation of a context in which to observe and monitor a subset of connected devices (through their adapter connections).

Additional Features and Improvements

  • We changed the default settings from immutable to mutable configuration. For more information, please read Mutable-And-Immutable-Configuration
