Creating a Connection From UI

You must have an active HERE account prior to creating a HERE connection in ThingPark.

You also need to know the parameters that are required to perform this task. To learn more, check Parameters required for connecting to a HERE platform.

Then, a new page will open. Select the connection type : HERE Technologies.


  1. Fill in the form as in the example below and click on Create.



Parameters marked with * are mandatory.

To do this, proceed as follows:

  1. Select the Here application for which you want to change one or several parameters.

  2. In the application information dashboard, click on the Edit button corresponding to the parameter you want to change.


  1. Enter the new value, and click on the Confirm icon.

  • A notification will inform you that the parameter is updated.


Creating a Connection With API

The creation of a connection establishes a bidirectional messaging transport link between ThingPark X IoT Flow and the cloud provider. Events and commands from multiple Devices will be multiplexed over this messaging transport link.

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
"connectorId": "actility-here-iot",
"name": "My first HERE connection",
"configuration": {
"email": "",
"password": "MyHerePassword",
"appId": "ya5f66oj2vau1EGMvREK",
"description": "My tracking project"

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

JSON FieldDescription
connectorIdMust be set to actility-here-iot for HERE platform.
emailEmail of the subscriber's HERE account.
passwordPassword of the application that you want to register.
appIdThe Application ID defining the project used (blank = first project as default)
Important note

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


There are currently no known limitations to the HERE connector.
