A notification will inform you that the parameter is updated.


Creating a Connection With API

The creation of a connection establishes a unidirectional messaging transport link to Widgelix. 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 Widgelix",
"configuration": {
"description": "My first Widgelix connection.",
"Authorization": "Bearer {access-token}"

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

connectorIdMust be set to actility-http-iot for WIDGELIX platform.
configuration/descriptionDescription of the application.
configuration/destinationURLMust be set to
configuration/headersSet of key-values. The only obligatory key is Authorization, which needs your Access Token as a value.
brandMust be set to WIDGELIX.
Important note

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