While the Mosquitto bridge works fine there is one feature supported by Mosquitto but missing from LUCI/UCI. Topic mapping.

It is only possible to configure:

  • Topic
  • Direction
  • QoS level

Which is fine if you don't intend to prefix topics from this proxy. But there are many situations where you do want add a prefix. Situations where "dumb" devices behind the proxy needs a UUID prefix as a way to separate them from other devices behind another proxy.

Two input fields, one for "local-prefix" and one for "remote-prefix" would be enough (for each topic).

My current solution is to manualy edit and abuse the qos field in /etc/config/mosquitto by adding "" my-remote-prefix/ which doesn't work with the LUCI interface.

Example:

config topic
        option qos '1 "" rut-modbus/523851a8-9f95-4d01-9e9c-80da338bef0b/'
        option topic '#'
        option direction 'both'

Prefered solution:

config topic
        option topic '#'
        option direction 'both'
        option qos '1'
        option local '""'
        option remote 'rut-modbus/523851a8-9f95-4d01-9e9c-80da338bef0b/'
