How to deploy
To set up Mosquitto, you can add it as a service to your cloudspace. Select Mosquitto from the service library and follow the instructions. You will be asked to create a repository for this service. This will contain a Dockerfile that holds major configuration details. Therefore you should set the repository visibility to "private".

To connect to your Mosquitto service use the external hostname. Per default the authentication is set to username 'mogenius' and password 'mogenius'. You should change this immediately in the Dockerfile.

There is also a detailed tutorial available on how to launch Mosquitto with mogenius.
