Listen to MQTT


You can learn more about Outputs in the Messages, Payloads and Transactions section.

IOTA node(s) provide a Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) layer, if enabled, which is a lightweight publish-subscribe network protocol that provides information about events that are being triggered by the IOTA network.

The client library supports asynchronous event listeners that can be listened to, and continuously receive MQTT events based on a topic, which can be:

  • milestones/latest
  • milestones/confirmed
  • messages
  • messages/referenced
  • messages/indexation/{index}
  • messages/{messageId}/metadata
  • transactions/{transactionId}/included-message
  • outputs/{outputId}
  • addresses/{address}/outputs
  • addresses/ed25519/{address}/outputs

// TODO: Make listeners with the Sync trait
// iota.subscriber().withTopic(Topic.from("messages")).subscribe(listener);
