Is there an example on how to GET metrics value with TSD REST API from the PLCnext?

I want to read a value of a metric at a specific timestamp from the Proficloud database.

I was thinking of using a python script (with Requests package) or node-red flow for this task.

I'm not sure about the url I must use. 

Any advise? :)

Hi Robin,

I've moved this to the "Proficloud" topic, I hope that's OK.

If I understand correctly, you want to log data to the Proficloud TSD service, from either this PLC and/or other PLC(s). Then, you want to read back some data that is logged in the Proficloud database, using a client running on the PLC, using the REST interface on the Proficloud TSD database. Is that a fair summary?

I understand that it is possible for the Proficloud team to set up REST access to a customer's Proficloud database, on request. I guess you have requested this already.

Since the REST interface is enabled on a case-by-case basis, and is not a generally available feature, I will ask someone from the Proficloud team to contact you directly with information on how to use that REST interface.

Hi Martin,

Thanks for the quick feedback.

That's exactly what I want to do.

I already have the API Access password. It's for the account ''pxcanada''

Thank you for your help!

Best regards
