Appsync Subscription through browser (ReactJS and MQTT.js)

0

I'm trying to connect to an Appsync subscription through a React app via web browser.

I seem to be connected, but I'm not receiving any messages/packets when I post new messages through postMessage mutation.

The Appsync API uses Cognito User Pool as authorization mode

Schema

schema {
  query: Query
  mutation: Mutation
  subscription: Subscription
}
type Query {
  getUser: String
}
type Mutation {
  postMessage(groupId: ID!, message: String!): Message!
}
type Subscription {
  postedMessage(groupId: ID!): Message
    @aws_subscribe(mutations: ["postMessage"])
}
type Message {
  groupId: ID!
  id: ID!
  CreateTime: Int!
  message: String!
  author: String!
}

ReactJS and MQTT.js

import mqtt from 'mqtt'
...
  subToNewMessages() {
    var groupId = this.props.group.id
    var query = `subscription PostedMessage($groupId: ID!) {
  postedMessage(groupId: $groupId){id, CreateTime, message, author}
}`
    httpReq(
      {
        method: 'POST',
        body: JSON.stringify({
          query: query,
          variables: { groupId }
        }),
        url: 'https://mygraphqlendpoint.com',
          // the graphql endpoint sits behind an API Gateway which goes through an authorizer
        headers: [
          ['Content-Type', 'application/json'],
          // SessionId is traded for JWT token through API Gateway Authorizer
          ['SessionId', localStorage.getItem('sessionId')] 
        ]
      },
      xhr => {
        console.log(xhr)
          var parsedResponse = JSON.parse(xhr.responseText).extensions
            .subscription.mqttConnections
          console.log(parsedResponse)

          var client = mqtt.connect(parsedResponse[0].url, {
            clientId: parsedResponse[0].client
          })
          client.on('connect', function() {
            console.log('connected')
            client.subscribe(parsedResponse[0].topics[0], function(
              err,
              granted
            ) {
              if (!err) {
                console.log(granted)
              } else {
                console.log(err)
              }
            })
          })
          client.on('error', function(err) {
            console.log(err)
          })
          client.on('reconnect', function() {
            console.log('reconnecting')
          })
          client.on('message', function(topic, message, packet) {
            console.log(topic)
            console.log(message.toString())
            console.log(packet)
          })
          client.on('packetreceive', function(packet) {
            console.log(packet)
          })
      }
    )
  }

Using Amplify I'm able to receive subscription updates, but not if I use arguments.

    Amplify.configure({
      API: {
        graphql_endpoint: 'https://mygraphqlendpoint.com',
        graphql_headers: async () => ({
          SessionId: localStorage.getItem('sessionId')
        })
      }
    })
...
  // this is working. I changed my original schema to allow subscription with no arguments
  const subscription = API.graphql(
      graphqlOperation(
        `subscription PostedMessage {
        postedMessage{id, CreateTime, message, author}
      }`
      )
    ).subscribe({
      next: todoData => console.log(todoData)
    })
  // this is not working
  var groupId = this.props.group.id
  const subscriptionWithArgs = API.graphql(
      graphqlOperation(
        `subscription PostedMessage($groupId: ID) {
        postedMessage(groupId: $groupId){id, CreateTime, message, author}
      }`,
        { groupId: groupId }
      )
    ).subscribe({
      next: todoData => console.log(todoData)
    })

The subscription with arguments is now working, by adding groupId to the response of my postMessage mutation.

var query = `mutation PostMessage($groupId: ID!, $message: String!) {
  postMessage(groupId: $groupId, message: $message){id, CreateTime, message, author, groupId}
}`
