Some MQTT devices do not send json payloads; for example, some devices send a single value as the payload for a specific topic.
It would be beneficial for the adapter to be able to handle this rather than to convert these payloads into json before they get to the adapter.12 votes

Enable Auto Discovery for PI Adapter for MQTT SparkplugB to always listen for Birth and Death messages
When utilizing the SparkplugB protocol for MQTT, it would be beneficial for the adapter to be always listening for birth and death messages from specific Edge of Network nodes.
This way, the device can send a birth message to have itself added to the data selection array, then a death message to have itself removed. This would enforce a data selection array that's always reflecting the current state of devices connected to the broker, doesn't miss any data messages, and doesn't bloat over time.8 votes
