Usage of templates in Sparkplug Payload

Hi there, we like to use the Sparkplug Standard for our pumps ( to communicate with a cloud platform.

We are wondering about the usage of templates. Are they defined with a NBIRTH telegram and then create as instance in a DBIRTH telegram? What´s the difference instead of directly using DBIRTH telegrams to populate the metrics with it´s properties and sending it via DDATA? The possiblity to use parameters in the payload?

Thanks a lot for some hints.

Best, Jens

I’d recommend taking a look at this example: tahu/ at master · eclipse/tahu · GitHub

I should also note that the Sparkplug Working Group may be a good resource for you:

Specifically the Slack channels there might be of use.
