Data Platform API Documentation
With our Data Platform APIs, you will be able to access the network device data from your solution or application. The term "solution" in this context is used to identify a collection of devices that are deployed in the field for a specific use or application. You can have various solutions that you own and you can develop solutions following the typical developer workflow paradigm where you can iterate in development, stage, or sandbox and then deploy to production.
Solution: A collection of devices that are deployed in the field for a specific use or application.
Device: A Silver Spring AP or Milli, or external devices such as a sensor that gauges changes in environment since it was last recorded.
Observation: Any sensor data about changes in the environment, such as temperature, humidity, or location.
Webhook: A user-defined HTTP callback triggered by an event.
