Setup Uploaders


Hint

You usually should express the Nightscout URL in secure **https://**, not only http://. (Unless you set INSECURE_USE_HTTP to true)

What is my Nightscout URL?

This is the address you type in any browser to display your Nightscout web site.

If you’re using a hosted service, ask the vendor.


Your Nightscout URL defined in Heroku by your App name, is the one that shows when you open your Nightscout site in a browser. It usually looks like: https://yoursitename.herokuapp.com

Your Nightscout URL is defined in FreeDNS. You can find it in Status - Hostname.


Dexcom

You need at least one follower to use Nightscout share or nightscout-connect plugins.

Hint

If you use a DIY closed loop system it is recommended that you let it upload to Nightscout instead of importing data using Dexcom Share and a Nightscout plugin.

On your master phone, touch the Share icon, enable Sharing. If you have no follower, add one. You can also invite yourself.

Verify, update or add these variables:

BRIDGE_USER_NAME
BRIDGE_PASSWORD
BRIDGE_SERVER

You need to add bridge in the ENABLE variable. Do not delete other entries, just add bridge after a space.

Verify, update or add these variables:

CONNECT_SOURCE set to dexcomshare
CONNECT_SHARE_ACCOUNT_NAME
CONNECT_SHARE_PASSWORD
CONNECT_SHARE_REGION (must be set to ous if outside of the US, else don’t add this variable)

You need to add connect in the ENABLE variable. Do not delete other entries, just add connect after a space.


MOST COMMON ERRORS

The most common error on initial Nightscout setups is that people incorrectly use an old account or an old password. To test your username and password, go to Dexcom’s Clarity page (check here for USA accounts and here for the others) and try logging in to your Dexcom account. If your account info isn’t valid, or you don’t see any data in your Clarity account… you need to figure out your actual credentials before moving ahead. See here for troubleshooting tips and information on your Dexcom account.

Password

Some people have had problems with their bridge connecting when their Dexcom passwords are entirely numeric. If you have connection issues in that case, try changing your password to something with a mix of numbers and letters.

You can also use this QR code generator and the menu item Scan NS-Autoconfig QR Code to copy the information.

For hosted Nightscout you’ll find the QR code generator in Uploaders, select the HTTP tab.

You might want to setup additional fields for your pump.
