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 Google",
"configuration": {
"serviceAccount": {your json file},
"cloudRegion": "us-central1"

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

connectorIdMust be set to actility-google-iot for Google IoT Core platform.
configuration/serviceAccountMust be replaced by your Service account file.
configuration/cloudRegionMust be replaced by your Registry cloud region.
Important note
