use REST API to set axis command (i.e.:power on axis )

Hello,

I'm having some problem to use the REST API to set an axis command: for instance the power on.

I tried to set the axis limit and it works but I'n not able to set any axis command. Maybe I use the wrong commands

I'm using Postman to set the API command ( below you have the screenshot of the succesfull command and unsuccesfull one )

Could you help me ?

Many Thanks

Giuseppe

Re: use REST API to set axis command (i.e.:power on axis )

The path you try to command to must be  the command itself and also the payload has to look different.

Path:

POST https://localhost:8443/automation/api/v1.0/motion/axs/AxisX/cmd/power

Payload:

{"value":true,"type":"bool8"}

 

There is an how to use the REST API in the blog area. Please have a look there for further hints.

Also the documentation of the ctrlX Data Layer will be improved with the new release RM21.03 ( version 1.8).

Hello,

I tried the power command with your advice and then I modify it as in the attached screenshot ( I set it like the limit command which is working ) but in both cases I got the same error ( see attached screenshot )

What Am I doing wrong ?

Thanks

You are using a PUT command but as I mentioned in my instructions above you have to do a POST.

And please beware that you will always have to send an actual valid bearer token in the authorization header.
