Creating a Connection With API

The creation of a connection establishes a unidirectional messaging transport link to the cloud provider.

To do this, you need to use the Connections group resource:

  • POST/connections to create a new Connection instance
  • PUT/connections to update a Connection instance
  • DELETE/connections to delete a Connection instance

We follow the REST-full API pattern, when updating configuration properties for a connection resource. Thus, you must also provide the whole configuration again.

Example for creation of a new connection instance :

POST /connections
"name":"Actility To Cayenne",
"configuration": {

The following table lists the properties applicable to a connection instance.

connectorIdMust be set to actility-http-iot for Cayenne platform.
configuration/destinationURLMust be set to
brandMust be set to CAYENNE.
Important note
