Here you can add an API that facilitates communication between BC Time and devices. This function will always be managed by a BC Time consultant and never by the client themselves.
Step 1: Click on Manage
Here, you will see the following filters, which you can apply to existing API authorizations:
All types - you select the type of configured API's that you want to see. Either the device communication ones or the 3rd party ones
Search API Authorizations - when you have multiple API's and want to review only one, you can search for it specifically
CSV / PDF - you can export your list of API's in either csv or PDF format
Step 2: Click on the ellipses button (dots) and select New
These are the roles the API will be managing. Clients will never have to tick these options, the API assigns these roles.
Refers to the unique detail in the end-to-end encryption for secure data communication
Local Comm. app version: shows you the version of Time_Comm you are on
Branch(es): shows you the branch that your API is authenticated to
Last comm.: shows you the last time the API communicated. This should always be on the latest time to show there is communication and the Time Comm service is running
Transfer to Comm app: This is the security detail mentioned above on the sensitive data which is transferred to the Time Comm service for authentication
Transfer to enrollment app: This is the security detail mentioned above on the sensitive data which is transferred to the Enrollment application for authentication
Regenerate sensitive data: This is for regenerating Sensitive data used in the end-to-end encryption for secure data communication
Update Public Key: You update with a public key that you get from Time Comm service
Delete: is for deleting the API
Back: This is used to go back to the list of created API's
Here you can run commands to make certain updates/changes on the database and devices
Step 1: Click on Com Commands
Step 2: Click on ellipses button (dots) and select new to run a new command
Step 3: Select the type of command you want to run based on the required changes/updates. It's important to note that specific commands will display different options based on the command type selected as in the example screenshot below. Refer to our knowledge-based article on Understanding comm commands.
Step 4: Once you are done selecting your Command and you have saved your progress, you will be taken back to the list of all commands.
You can select the date range for which you want to view the commands
All command types give you the option to view a specific command only, based on your selection.
All status(es) give you the option to select the command status you would like to view.
After selecting a filter, either based on command types or all status(es), you will have to select the (now orange) refresh option next to the "all status(es) bar"
You can export your list of commands in either PDF or CSV format by clicking on either of the two options.
