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 CommonSense",
"configuration": {

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

connectorIdMust be set to actility-http-iot for CommonSense platform.
brandMust be set to COMMONSENSE.
Important note

All properties are not present in this example. You can check the rest of these properties in the common parameters section.
