The functions of the CPO API are not included in any subscription by default. If you are interested in using this API, please contact your direct sales contact.
Creating CLIENT_ID and CLIENT_SECRET for the CPO API has been significantly simplified in be.ENERGISED.
What is the CPO API?
The target group for this API are charge point operators (CPOs). The CPO API is used to automate the management of your infrastructure as a charging station operator. Through this API, various parameters such as charging stations, connections, etc. are made available, which allow you to find and edit the assets you need for operations.
The CPO API is continuously being expanded, so it should be noted at this point that new endpoints are being added all the time. If you use the CPO API, please make sure that your applications can handle new endpoints and fields appropriately and are not affected by the addition of them.
Authentication and Endpoints
For details on the authentication process and available endpoints, see this documentation.
What has changed in be.ENERGISED?
In be.ENERGISED, if you are using the CPO API, you now have the option to create a new Access Token under Settings/System settings/CPO API.
To do that, go to the "Create new token" button and then enter a name for it.
As soon as you click on "Save", the window with the "Client ID" and "Client Secret" opens. "Client Secret" will not be displayed to you afterwards, so copy this string out from this window. Both fields are grayed out and cannot be changed.
As soon as you close the window, the token appears with name and Client ID. The token is valid as long as it appears here. As soon as the token is deleted, it loses its validity.
