NPM

This is RESTFul interface to read the objects and states from ioBroker and to write/control the states over HTTP Get/Post requests.

This adapter uses Sentry libraries to automatically report exceptions and code errors to the developers. For more details and for information how to disable the error reporting see Sentry-Plugin Documentation! Sentry reporting is used starting with js-controller 3.0.

Usage

Call e.g.:

http://ipaddress:8087/getPlainValue/system.adapter.admin.0.alive

Result:

true

get

Call e.g.:

http://ipaddress:8087/get/system.adapter.admin.0.alive

Result:

{"val":true,"ack":true,"ts":1442432193,"from":"system.adapter.admin.0","lc":1442431190,"expire":23437,"_id":"system.adapter.admin.0.alive","type":"state","common":{"name":"admin.0.alive","type":"boolean","role":"indicator.state"},"native":{}}

or call e.g.:

http://ipaddress:8087/get/system.adapter.admin.0.alive?prettyPrint

Result:

{
  "val": true,
  "ack": true,

http://ipaddress:8087/set/javascript.0.test?value=1&prettyPrint&type=string

and ack flag could be defined too:

http://ipaddress:8087/set/javascript.0.test?value=1&prettyPrint&ack=true

toggle

  • boolean: true => false, false => true
  • number without limits: x => 100-x
  • number with limits: x => max - (x - min)

setBulk

Set many states with one request. This request supports POST method too, for POST data should be in body and not URL.

setValueFromBody

Allows to set the value of a given State be set by the POST body content.

objects

states

search

Is a data source (History, SQL) in the configuration is set, then only the data points known to the data source are listed.
If the option 'List all data points' has been activated or no data source has been specified, all data points will be listed.
This command is needed for the Grafana JSON / SimpleJSON Plugin.

query

If a data source (History, SQL) has been specified, the data from the specified data points are read out for the specified period, otherwise only the current value is read out.
This command is needed for the Grafana JSON / SimpleJSON Plugin.

help

Gives this output back

Install

node iobroker.js add simple-api

Usage

Assume, we have no security and the server runs on default port 8087.

For all queries the name or id of the state can be specified.

For every requiest that returns JSON you can set parameter prettyPrint to get the output in human readable form.

If authentication is enabled, two other fields are mandatory:

?user=admin&pass=iobroker

getPlainValue

Read state value as text. You can specify more ids divided by semicolon

http://ip:8087/getPlainValue/admin.0.memHeapTotal
  31.19
http://ip:8087/getPlainValue/admin.0.memHeapTotal, admin.0.memHeapUsed
  31.19
  17.52

get

Read state and object data of state as json. You can specify more ids divided by semicolon. If more than one ID requested, the JSON array will be returned.

getBulk

Read the states of more IDs with timestamp. You can specify more ids divided by semicolon. Always the JSON array will be returned.

  {

          "val": 15.6,
          "ts": 1423154754
      }
  }

set

Write the states with specified IDs. You can specifiy wait option in milliseconds to wait for answer from driver.

http://ip:8087/set/hm-rpc.0.IEQ12345.LEVEL?value=1&prettyPrint
{
       "id": "hm-rpc.0.IEQ12345.LEVEL",

       "from": "hm-rpc.0.IEQ12345.LEVEL",
       "lc": 1423155399
     }

If no answer will be recieved in specified time, the null value will be returned. In the first case the answer will be returned immediately and ack is false. In the second case ack is true. That means it was response from driver.

setBulk

  • write bulk of IDs in one request.
http://ip:8087/setBulk?hm-rpc.0.FEQ1234567:1.LEVEL=0.7&Anwesenheit=0&prettyPrint
  [
    {
