1.0 Introduction

1.4 Action Information

Back to Index

Once connected to an account and authenticated the action to perform must be specified. This is done through the action variable. Some actions may identify a family of related actions specified by the operation variable. An example would be the showopen action which has the showinsp (retrieve detailed inspection information), showassets (retrieve asset listings) and showoperators (retrieve operator listings) as some of it’s individual operations.

Access to actions for any user is controlled in exactly the same way as for the normal web interface.

Some actions have names beginning with ‘ext’ such as extgetnewinsp or extgetasset. These actions are in the process of being removed and should be avoided if another equivalent action exists. Read the documentation carefully and heed any deprecation warnings.
