MQTT publish to openplotter server

I would like to be able to get some signalK datas through MQTT.
I tried tp configure MQTT (openplotter interface).
I can connect to my MQTT openplotter server from a application (MQTT Dash), but I can not get any configured topics ...
I must miss something.
Or is it that MQTT plugin is only to publish to external MQTT server ?
Thanks for any help !
Did you check ?

How have you configure the plugin now?

Thanks for your reply !
Yes, I checked the git page ... But I don't have SignalK MQTT plugin config page for it. Should I install it ? Wouldn't it mess with openplotter built-in function ?
I did not install yet SignalK MQTT plugin, I went through the openplotter setting app (see attached picture).

Thanks for your help.
I'm currently sending 3 data streams from Signal K Node Red to a 2nd Pi Zero using MQTT.
How I did:
- activate local MQTT server using OpenPlotter GUI
- import my small flow into Signal K Node Red and add the user/password in the security tab (only once, on one flow), you'll need to know the Signal K paths on your server, for that you can use an optionall API endpoint , this is the new (optional) Signal K to Prometheus Plugin, install it first.
- import my flow into the Pi Zero Node Red and add the user/password in the security tab (only once, on one flow), you'll see it's configured to connect to the broker 'OpenPlotter' on IP Fyi, the data is outputted to a bright LED matrix, that is the goal of it.
- I also have a mini router running OpenWRT which sends MQTT messages to the Pi Zero on a button press, it fonctions as a remote control to cycle the display trough the views

The MQTT topics have to be inputted correctly of course, you can find
