Template URLs

Several of the URLs below require that you know the Customer ID and Device ID for the devices that users want to display or edit. The user's credentials will need to be passed on to the URL.

All parameter values that contain special characters (<username> and <password>) must be URL encoded in order to be processed. See URL encoding of special characters.

To obtain the customer ID and the device ID, a web service API is provided as described in Web Service Level.

Login language is an optional parameter that can be passed in to the URL to localize the displayed screen to the appropriate language. The only language supported at this time is US English.
