Now Live! Cayenne REST API for application developers


Looking forward to it.


I connect it, but using python and mqtt. I will try also with node.js :slight_smile:

Bumping this thread to let you know that this API is now live (it has been for a few days, you may have noticed the Create App button on your dashboard before this announcement).


Woow :slight_smile: I will test these days and maybe make a some step by step tutorial with the Intel Edison :slight_smile:


so excited… :slight_smile:


I. Can. Hardly. Contain. My. Excitement.




Please correct me if I´m wrong but what I have seen from the API is that it is Northbound interface, lets say, we can extract device info in order to develope our own GUI etc… I haven´t seen that we could generate HTTP/GET-POST Southbound traffic from a device with this interface, is that right?


I am having trouble to get the oauth2.0 token. I was using chrome postman. Is there any one can help me? Thanks


@xiaozhiyong1988 is this the same issue you had in this post?


Tagging @hcortes as I’m not familiar with this specific terminology


Yes it is. Thanks.



Actually, there is a way. To send data using HTTP create a BYOT device then follow this:

curl --request POST \
  --url \
  --header 'authorization: Basic base64(MQTT_USERNAME:MQTT_PASSWORD)' \
  --header 'content-type: application/json' \
  --data '[
        "channel": 100,
        "value": 27,
        "type": "temp",
        "unit": "c"


@ognqn.chikov @kreggly @loslelazlo @Neoxelox @tempmail.temp @tiendle @xiaozhiyong1988 Hello! We recently released a ‘Sample App’ for the purpose that it will help you get started with using the Cayenne API and provide examples. Can you take a look and let me know what you think? Does it help?
