"listOutputs"

The JSON Edge API "listOutputs" action returns a list of the names of previously created FairCom Edge outputs

Abstract

listOutputs obtains a list of the names of previously created outputs.

The "listOutputs" action obtains a list of the names of previously created outputs. Outputs deliver tags from the server to external systems.

Note

A tag is named data, such as a temperature with a value of 70 . In JSON, a tag is a JSON property, such as "temperature": 70. In a SQL table, a tag is a data field, such as a field named temperature with a value of 70.

Things to know

  • You can return a filtered list by specifying a partial name in the "partialName" property.

  • You can include additional items in the list by searching for words contained in the item’s metadata.

  • Use "describeOutputs" to get detailed information about specific outputs.
