Why two get requests are not updating fields in thingspeak?

0 votes

A single run cannot update two or more get request to my thingspeak fields. My code has a part which requires two fields to get updated in one python program. Like..,

urlopen("https://api.thingspeak.com/update?api_key=D------MQV&field1=5")
urlopen("https://api.thingspeak.com/update?api_key=D------MQV&field2=10")

Only field1 gets updated with the above example. Thanks!

Hi...what about the devices that we have out in the field that have been reporting fine until today? These are going to be hard to get back and get reprogrammed! I have devices that report 1 time per minute and they have all stopped working now.

You can update up to 8 fields at once in one request.

urlopen("https://api.thingspeak.com/update?api_key=D------MQV&field1=5&field2=10")

The reason why two back-to-back requests do not work is that ThingSpeak has a 15-second rate limit on free accounts.
