We have a cron scheduler running inside the Mindsphere application to ingest the data into the Mindsphere platform. we have gone through "Calling APIs from Backend" section in the below link, but it is different from "calling APIs from background scheduler in a Mindsphere app". As our usecase is different, can you point me the procedure to consume the Mindsphere API from a scheduler?.
Dlouzan, Thanks for the direction. Following are my understandings from the document, kindly correct me if I am wrong
1. Since the service credentials are tenant specific, the operator has to request the 'service credential' for every tenant/customer via mail?.
2. The service credentials has to be renewed for every tenant manually, which is again a manual process?.
This is a use case that I myself have not (yet) tested. But if you require access to multiple tenants data, then I point you to the recently released Token Management Service API that can be used to access other tenants data:
Until the availability of the Token Management Service API, the typical service credentials needed to be requested to MindSphere support. With the new API, your customers can create credentials directly in the developer cockpit. Check the documentation for details.
I'd be grateful for feedback if you try this approach :-)
Hi @svn :
I am also facing the same challenge and actually have a very similar setup. Using the Token Management Service as @dlouzan suggested is a great idea IF this credentials do not expire like the normal service credentials.
There is no information about this in the documentation, so I guess we are going to find out the hard way.
