Hi and welcome to Digi Forums.

You will indeed need to develop a Python application to run on the ConnectPort X4 that will grab the information from your sensors and present it to your platform.
Alternatively, you could use Digi Remote Manager and then use the API from the cloud platform to pull/push to the other platform.

You can use Digi ESP to see examples of how we perform such task using our Digi Remote Manager platform.

Documentation for ESP and the X4 can be found on our website here: https://www.digi.com/support/productdetail?pid=5042&type=documentation

Documentation for our Remote Manager platform can be found here: https://remotemanager.digi.com/home.do#

When i work with digi samples (tank kit and prof. kit) i notes, that i can see and change the python code of the kits. So if i make some changes, would i be able to save those changes and "make'' new app? Can you sent me the link for the Programmers guide again?
