Get Push Messages by Pulsar (C# SDK)

Last Updated on : 2023-05-22 06:38:11

A cloud project provides the message subscription feature. If the device status in the project changes, such as registration, data reporting, and offline events, Message Service is used to actively push event data to external partners with Pulsar. This helps to implement real-time and persistent messages.


  • You have created a project. For more information about project creation, see Quick Start.
  • You have installed the C# development tool Rider.
  • You have installed the .NET IDE.


Currently, Tuya Smart Message Service is customized and modified based on open source Pulsar. The Pulsar SDK for C# is provided. In this topic, the C# development tool Rider is used to receive messages.

Step 1: Download the demo source code

Click Pulsar SDK to download the package to the local computer and decompress the package.

Step 2: Open the source code project

  1. Use Rider to open the source code project: Click New Solution to create a solution.
    On the New Solution page, select Console Application, enter the solution name in the field of Solution name, select C# for Language and net5.0 for Framework, and then click Create.

  3. Add the dependency packages. The project requires the following dependency packages:

    • System.Net.WebSockets Version=4.3.0
    • Newtonsoft.Json Version=13.0.1
    1. In the top navigation bar, choose Tools > NuGet > Manage NuGet Packages for Solution to open the NuGet manager.

Step 3: Configure project parameters

Modify the parameters in the sample code Program.cs. This topic takes the test channel as an example.

// accessId, accessKey,serverUrl,MQ_ENV
private static string ACCESS_ID = "xt*****ff**n1****8ufo";
private static string ACCESS_KEY = "479bcb7345******582d9c******4ef7";
private static string WSS_SERVER_URL = "wss://";
private static string MQ_ENV= MQ_ENV_TEST;

The parameters are described as follows.

  • ACCESS_ID: Enter the value of Access ID in the Authorization Key section on the Tuya IoT Development Platform.

  • ACCESS_KEY: Enter the value of Access Secret in the Authorization Key section on the Tuya IoT Development Platform.

  • WSS_SERVER_URL: Be sure to use the URL of the specified domain name where the private cloud is deployed.

  • MQ_ENV: the message subscription channel.

    • MQ_ENV_PROD represents the production environment.
    • MQ_ENV_TEST represents the test environment.

    In the MQ_ENV, MQ_ENV_TEST represents the test environment and MQ_ENV_PROD represents the production environment.

Step 4: Operate a device on the app and receive messages in the test environment

  1. The messages reported by the test device will be sent through the test channel to accelerate debugging of device functions.

  2. On the development tool Rider, right-click the Pulsar-demo project and select Run ‘Pulsar-demo’ to run it.

  3. Control the device with a mobile app.

    1. Turn on the test light.
    2. Adjust the brightness of the light.
  4. Automatically get the push messages on Rider.
