Web API Service

The inmation Web API (application programming interface) is hosted in a Windows Service. It can be used by any external application as an interface to system:inmation, using HTTP or WebSocket calls.

Using the Web API you can perform the following actions:

  1. Read from any VQT item in the system namespace

  2. Write to any VQT item in the system namespace

  3. Read History from any VQT item in the system namespace

  4. Execute a function from a Lua script library

  5. Encode a JSON document to a Base64 string

Detailed information about the HTTP service can be found in the Swagger documentation page of the Web API: <Web API base address>/api/docs. The default url is http://localhost:8002/api/docs

The Swagger documentation page is only visible after the Web API service has been installed.
