Problem using Bridge under different Blynk Accounts

Hi everybody.

I was trying to connect two Nodemcu using BRIDGE funcionality. Each device has its own auth token in a different Blynk accounts.

After trying some time I was not able to send information from device A to device B, using Bridge. So I thought that maybe the Bridge functionality is resctricted to Auth Token created under the same account (even though this limitation is not described in documentation).

So I created two Auth Token under the same Blynk account and I realized that then I could connect both devices using Bridge without any problem.

Is there a way to connect devices using BRIDGE if auth tokens belong to different accounts ?


Not as far as I know. Why would you want to?

I believe you can use the API calls to any device providing you know the auth. API is different to Bridge widget but can be used to do many of the same things.

Thank you for your answer.

In the past I have created different accounts for different projects to visualize the information in a more tiddy way. The thing is I now want to connect each other and I realize that it is not possible.

On the other hand it’s strange that nowhrere says that Bridge only works for the same account. Why wouldn’t it possible to use with any Tokens from any accounts ?

I believe it’s a security feature but as I wrote you can do similar with the API.

you need to clone the app and get new auth :wink:

Unfortunately that is not a thing… I think it might be already added to the wish list in the Blynk Roadmap, but if not it should be, as copy pasting sections, tabs, etc. from multiple dev projects into one larger primary project is a sorely missing feature.

At the risk of sounding like a stuck record, it’s simple in Node-Red (because it uses API cal;ls in the background) :grinning:


Converting the planet to Node-Red, one repetition at a time :stuck_out_tongue:

Hallelujah! All praise the mighty Node-Red :pray:


Well as a workaround I 've copied the old projects into a new bigger project to have both under the same accounts.!!
