The Configuration API in TOP Server V6 provides the ability to programmatically read and update the configuration in TOP Server from other software applications. The configuration API allows you to read, create, update, and delete channels, devices, groups, meter groups, and tags. Over time, the various optional plug-ins will also be configurable by the TOP Server API.
Recognizing that many of our users are .NET developers, Software Toolbox will also soon be offering an object oriented .NET wrapper for the RESTful API for users who develop in Visual Studio.NET and do not want to have to handle the management of the calls to the RESTful web service and serializing and de-serializing of the JSON packets. The goal being to provide these developers a rapid development environment that allows them to focus on the configuration tasks, not the plumbing of implementation of the API.
If any of the use cases below sound familiar or if you have another use case for taking advantage of the .NET API and would like more information about how to get started, please fill out the form to the right and one of our knowledgeable engineers will be in touch as soon as possible to help.
