The APS Controller (APSC) exposes a number of services accessible through the Internet and the private network by means of the HTTPS REST API.


Controller Operations

APS controller stores and manages all APS resources in accordance with the resource types. Since all communications go through APSC, it keeps track of resources, types, and applications that manage those resources.

All objects managed by APSC are split into the following collections, each with its own base path.

Collection Base path Operations Description
Resources /aps/2/resources POST, GET, PUT, DELETE All operations with resources
Types /aps/2/types GET Read a single type or get a filtered list of types
Applications /aps/2/application POST, GET, PUT, DELETE All operations with application services - accessible only for applications with valid APS certificate
Packages /aps/2/packages GET Read package data or get a list of packages
UI navigation /aps/2/navigation POST UI navigation endpoint - used to get custom navigation tree for a control panel
UI runtime /aps/2/ui/runtime GET Path to APS SDK UI runtime - get the runtime version by addressing to /aps/2/ui/runtime/version.html
