The SORACOM API Reference is organized into API groups, each containing individual APIs, their respective details, and a description of the request and response.
The API reference allows you to group APIs based on their role. Major groups and their operations are described below.
|Auth||Issue and inspect API Keys, Tokens, and password reset tokens|
|Credential||Create, update, and delete authorization records|
|Operator||Create operators, update registered data, change passwords|
|Role||Set permissions for SAM users|
|ShippingAddress||Operations related to shipment of direct-sale units|
|User||SAM user settings, controls, and permissions|
|Subscriber||Poll, control, and release SIM data|
|Billing||Poll billing data|
|Payment||Create, update, and delete coupon codes and credit card data|
|EventHandler||Poll, create, update, and delete event handlers|
|Order||Check product order status, create estimates, and approve|
|Stats||Poll communications log|
|Group||Group creation, settings, and deletion|
|VirtualPrivateGateway||Create, change, and delete VPG, and operate Soracom Gate|
Each individual API detail section is structured as shown below:
- API Method and Path: the URL path for the REST API method, with parameters in curly braces
- API Name: the name of the API method, for use in SAM permissions, as well as certain SDKs
- Summary/Notes: a summary of the behavior of the API method
- Response Class (Status 200): the structure of the API call response when executed successfully
- Parameters: a list of required and optional parameters that the API method accepts
- Response Messages: a list of additional API call responses
- Try it out!: a button for executing the API method directly from the API Reference page
When executing an API method directly from the API Reference page, you must specify an API Key and Token. You can obtain a key/token pair by authenticating your account at the top of the page using an Authentication Key ID/secret pair or your account login information. This simply calls the /auth API method with your given authentication information, and populates the API Key and Token fields with the response.
In addition, the response of the API method call will appear below the button. As the API call is generated dynamically based on the parameters you provide, you can quickly inspect the response to understand the behavior of the API call. A sample curl command is also generated so that you can quickly reference how to call the API from your application.
For more information on how to use the API Reference page for testing the SORACOM API, please refer to: How do I use the SORACOM API Reference to make API calls?
Please note: API calls made on the API Reference page are performed against the authorized account, and are actual API calls and not simulated. Therefore, please use caution when testing, as the API calls will directly affect your account or devices, and may affect connectivity or incur charges based on the API method called.
