Kiosk is a Meshblu service that dynamically displays webpages. In order to use Kiosk with Octoblu, first navigate to Kiosk.
Step1: Open the Kiosk at “http://kiosk.octoblu.com/” and a new UUID and TOKEN will be generated each time.
Step 2: Click on “Claim The Kiosk Device On Octoblu”. You will be redirected to Octoblu. Register your Kiosk by giving it a name. Now this Kiosk is ready to use with your Octoblu flow.
If you already have a Kiosk set up in your Octoblu account, then you can use it by going to “Things” and then to “Connected Things”.
Step 3: Find your Kiosk and click “GENERATE TOKEN”.
Step 4: Use this New Session Token and UUID and add them manually in the URL.
Token: Token part of the url was highlighted in the picture below.
UUID: UUID part of the url was highlighted in the picture below.
Step 5: Go to Octoblu and create a flow using your Kiosk.
In this example, I used "compose" to display a custom image. So one needs to enter the information under "value" and "key".
1) In order for the Kiosk to work with your Octoblu flow, make sure to keep it open in a separate tab. Once you run the flow, your custom message or URL will be opened in the Kiosk tab.
2) Some websites like Google, Facebook will not be opened using Kiosk.
3) If the URL you want to display consist of “https//:” then they wouldn’t work.
