Get Push Messages by Pulsar (C# SDK)

Last Updated on : 2023-08-23 05:58:10download

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.
  • Message Service is enabled. For more information, see Message Service.
  • 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 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, and select C# for Language. Select net5.0 for Framework, and click Create.

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.

  • ACCESS_KEY: Enter the value of Access Secret in the Authorization Key section.

  • WSS_SERVER_URL: Choose the endpoints according to your location.

    • China Data Center: wss://
    • Western America Data Center: wss://
    • Central Europe Data Center: wss://
    • India Data Center: wss://
  • MQ_ENV: message subscription channel.

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