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-microsoft-teams",
"name": "Actility Teams uplinks",
"configuration": {
"destinationUrl": ""
JSON FieldDescription
connectorIdMust be set to actility-microsoft-teams for the Microsoft Teams platform.
destinationUrlDefines the destination in a Microsoft Teams channel, private or not.
Important note

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