VisionLink® APIs

The VisionLink Application Program Interface (API) service enables you to seamlessly integrate information remotely reported by the VisionLink® application into client applications.

The VisionLink API is a list of data feed topics; for example, Fuel Information, Diagnostics, and Event Data.

For a complete list of supported topics, sample code, and sample schemas, refer to the API Documentation page.

To access the VisionLink API, the user must have an active subscription to the VisionLink application & an API login credential to access the VisionLink API topics.

The VisionLink API eliminates the need to “mine” the data from the VisionLink application. For example, data can be provided to an ERP system, project management scheduling tool of choice, or to a field service dispatching application. Most of the data elements that are available for a specific asset by subscription can be obtained through the VisionLink API.
