htpps URL and Arduino. Is there a solution?

Hello

Don't know if it is the proper forum, sorry if not.

I succeed to create an https url link to send data to a Goggle sheet. This is done manually. Now, I want to create the link with the Arduino.

I did read many post post, and it seem that the Arduino Uno can't handle the math needed for https protocol.

Is there an intermediate or an innovative solution to post an https url with the Arduino Uno with a basic Ethernet shield?

Best wish to all for the new year to come

Hello

Still looking for a solution to send daily data from Arduino / Ethernet shield to a Google sheet.

Is there a free web service that I could use to redirect a http url create by my Arduino be redirected to an https url . I saw that Temboo.com seem to do this kind redirection, but it is not a free service.

Any suggestion?

Martin

Typically one would set the arduino up as a client so it will send the request/data to the target server.

Hello Zoomkat

Thank you for your input. IKnow nearly nothing about the "client" concept.

The goal is to send an https URL. The problem is the Arduino UNO with the Ethernet shield could not handle the calculation induce by the security.

I did succeed to create a http url, but not the secured version.

My quest is if possible to get a free service to redirect a unsecured url to a secured one needed to access Google Sheet.

How I see it (amateur view)

Arduino create send ---->http://unsecured-url-service.com/"my url string to be redirected"

URL received by: http://unsecured-url-service.com ---- > and decode url string Create a url string with the decoded received url

URL is put on the net https://my-secured-url-to-google-sheet

Google decode and modify the Google sheet.

You might look into the Temboo option at bit. I did a project a few years ago using Temboo to write to Google Sheets. The free plan worked fine for our needs. That was some time ago so the situation may have changed since then.

I've merged your other cross-post @arjfca.

Cross-posting is against the rules of the forum. The reason is that duplicate posts can waste the time of the people trying to help. Someone might spend 15 minutes (or more) writing a detailed answer on this topic, without knowing that someone else already did the same in the other topic.

Repeated cross-posting will result in a suspension from the forum.

In the future, please take some time to pick the forum board that best suits the topic of your question and then only post once to that forum board. This is basic forum etiquette, as explained in the sticky "How to use this forum - please read." post you will find at the top of every forum board. It contains a lot of other useful information. Please read it.

Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

Thank you, I'm taking note

Happy Holiday to you.

. Thanks for your input.

Temboo is not anymore a free service. It could be cheaper to use another and more powerful processor family to generate the "https" directly from the board.

OK, good to know. I helped a friend with that project and so I haven't kept up with what is going on with Temboo. I never really liked the idea of having the extra link in the chain of Temboo. I had to provide my friend with instructions for how to set up Google Sheets and Temboo and it ended up being a lot of steps, and not very easy to follow. I looked into the possibility of communicating directly with Google Sheets, but in the end I decided that Temboo was the quick and easy solution and went with that since it wasn't even my own project.

You might look into the Arduino MKR WiFi 1010 to see if it's set up to do this easily. Of course if you decide to stick with Ethernet over WiFi, I definitely support that, as I'm definitely a fan of Ethernet. Arduino does make a nice Ethernet shield for the MKR boards: https://store.arduino.cc/arduino-mkr-eth-shield
