coreMQTT v1.2.0
MQTT 3.1.1 Client Library

Parses the payload of an MQTT SUBACK packet that contains status codes corresponding to topic filter subscription requests from the original subscribe packet.

MQTTStatus_t MQTT_GetSubAckStatusCodes(const MQTTPacketInfo_t *pSubackPacket, uint8_t **pPayloadStart, size_t *pPayloadSize)
Parses the payload of an MQTT SUBACK packet that contains status codes corresponding to topic filter ...

Return codes from MQTT functions.

MQTT incoming packet parameters.
Definition: core_mqtt_serializer.h:251

Each return code in the SUBACK packet corresponds to a topic filter in the SUBSCRIBE Packet being acknowledged. The status codes can be one of the following:

  • 0x00 - Success - Maximum QoS 0
  • 0x01 - Success - Maximum QoS 1
  • 0x02 - Success - Maximum QoS 2
  • 0x80 - Failure Refer to MQTTSubAckStatus_t for the status codes.
[in]pSubackPacketThe SUBACK packet whose payload is to be parsed.
[out]pPayloadStartThis is populated with the starting address of the payload (or return codes for topic filters) in the SUBACK packet.
[out]pPayloadSizeThis is populated with the size of the payload in the SUBACK packet. It represents the number of topic filters whose SUBACK status is present in the packet.
Returns one of the following:


// Global variable used in this example.
// This is assumed to be the subscription list in the original SUBSCRIBE packet.
MQTTSubscribeInfo_t pSubscribes[ NUMBER_OF_SUBSCRIPTIONS ];
// MQTT_GetSubAckStatusCodes is intended to be used from the application
// callback that is called by the library in MQTT_ProcessLoop or MQTT_ReceiveLoop.

MQTTPacketInfo_t * pPacketInfo,

status = MQTT_GetSubAckStatusCodes( pPacketInfo, &pCodes, &numCodes );
// Since the pointers to the payload and payload size are not NULL, and
// we use the packet info struct passed to the app callback (verified
// to be valid by the library), this function must return success.
assert( status == MQTTSuccess );
// The server must send a response code for each topic filter in the
// original SUBSCRIBE packet.
assert( numCodes == NUMBER_OF_SUBSCRIPTIONS );
for( int i = 0; i < numCodes; i++ )
// The only failure code is 0x80 = MQTTSubAckFailure.
if( pCodes[ i ] == MQTTSubAckFailure )
// The subscription failed, we may want to retry the
// subscription in pSubscribes[ i ] outside of this callback.
// The subscription was granted, but the maximum QoS may be
// lower than what was requested. We can verify the granted QoS.
if( pSubscribes[ i ].qos != pCodes[ i ] )
"Requested QoS %u, but granted QoS %u for %s",
pSubscribes[ i ].qos, pCodes[ i ], pSubscribes[ i ].pTopicFilter
