3rd Party devices


I am getting underway with using 3rd party device support. I have been provided with the Google doc overview and I downloaded the most recent SDK as the DLL I was using did not recognise ProvisionResult. I have been assigned a device type prefix, though I am waiting for a productID integer to use in the ProvisionResult call. I assume the productID is not the same as the device type prefix as that is alphanumeric (or is it hex, and the decimal conversion is my ID?). 

While I was waiting, I was attempting to code with ProvisionResult. However, I cannot get the code to even compile as it states that ProvisionResult does not have a 4 argument structure. I tried to wrap it in an API.call, but the API references a database, so I don't think that is the way to go. 

On that note, I assume when asked for a user name and password parameters, this is the master credentials for my MyAdmin account, and not a MyGeotab database (since the goal is to get a serial number which is going to be tracked in MyAdmin)? 

Would it be possible to post some code that would achieve a provisioning? I can't find anything on the subject in the SDK documentation and experimenting is not getting me anywhere. Thank you!

You can use the WebServerInvoker class from our ObjectModel DLL to make the call to ProvisionResult as below. You must use a MyAdmin user that has been given privileges for third party integration. 

WebServerInvoker invoker = new WebServerInvoker(null, 100000); 
 invoker.Url = "https://myadminapi.geotab.com/MyAdminApi.ashx"; 
 Dictionary<string, object> arguments = new Dictionary<string, object> 
         {"username", ""}, // Your MyAdmin username 
         {"password", ""}, // Your MyAdmin password 
         {"productId", 0} // Your integer product ID 
 ProvisionResult result = (ProvisionResult)invoker.Invoke("ProvisionDevice", typeof(ProvisionResult), arguments); 


You can use the same process for AddGps by putting the correct parameters in the arguments dictionary and changing the invoked method and return type.
