Altair SmartWorks Provisioning Protocol: Provisioning Devices Via Altair SmartWorks REST API

You can provision your devices manually via the Altair SmartWorks REST API in a similar way as mentioned in the document "Provisioning Devices Via Altair SmartWorks Control Panel". This should never be the case when you are managing a net with 20 or more devices.

You can use curl, "Poster" like tools or any script in your prefered language to interact with Altair SmartWorks API. For this example, let's use the Altair SmartWorks API Console

The steps to provision a device in Altair SmartWorks via the REST API (using Altair SmartWorks API Console) are:

  • Device management in Altair SmartWorks API Console
  • Click on the option "POST - Create Device", at the beginning of the table.
  • Device creation in Altair SmartWorks API Console

Each field to be filled has a green icon on the right side of the field label. By putting the mouse pointer over these icons, useful information about how to fill the field will be displayed.

Once all mandatory fields have been typed, click on the button "Send" and your device will be created.
