Combining the Thing creation and enabling in using rest API.

Hello All,

I am trying out things with Rest API. I am following the link mentioned below ThingWorx REST API Cheat Sheet and http://support.ptc.com/cs/help/thingworx_hc/thingworx_7.0_hc/ .

  1. I have created the thing using the following API

          Method= POST

          http://localhost:8080/Thingworx/Resources/EntityServices/Services/CreateThing​ , authorization is basic auth, content-type and accept are application/json.

Json Format:

{

"name": "TestThing",

"description":"TestThingDescription",

"thingTemplateName":"TT_Test_API"

}

Response is 200k

      2. I have enabled the thing using the following API

          Method= PUT

          http://localhost:8080/Thingworx/Things/TestThing/Services/EnableThing

               Response is 200k

      3. I am sending the following properties to the thing

          Method= POST

               http://localhost:8080/Thingworx/Things/TestThing/Services/addDetails?method=post&input=register

{

"register":{

"Unique_ID":"2002",

"Address":"Bangalore, India",

"Contact_Mobile_No":"8897388034",

"Contact_Name":"YOGESH"

}

}

     In TT_Test_API(which is my template) and have written a service that fetch the data from the json what we are sending.I am able to do all these steps if i do them individually.

        Can we merge all the steps mentioned above and create a consolodated API so that we can Create the thing,Enable the thing & send the data in a single shot???

Best Regards,

Babu Yogesh,
