QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Public API and XML Feed

SPOT API Support: [email protected] API Access: Be considerate when making API calls, this service is provided free of charge, please do not abuse it. Repeatedly accessing the same feed in very short time periods will result in your IP being blocked or your feed disabled. Please allow as least 2.5 minutes between calls of the same feed and if you are pulling multiple feeds have your application sleep at least 2 seconds between feed requests . -- The API will only return data from the point in time the feed was created, up to a maximum of 7 days. Example: If you create a brand new feed for a device today, you will not be able to pull data from previous days on this new feed. -- The SPOT XML Feed is built upon an XML data stream that is enabled when a new xml feed is created. The first step is to create an XML Feed in your account. Step 1 Step 2 Step 3 Step 4 Step 5 Step 6 Copy this feed ID. You will need to add it to the API URL so that your URL looks like this: https://api.findmespot.com/spot-main-web/consumer/rest-api/2.0/public/feed/ 0onlLopfoM4bG5jXvWRE8H0Obd0oMxMBq /message.xml If you need to obtain your feed ID again, click View Details from the XML Feed tab and it will display your feed ID for you. Available API usage calls: Adding .xml before any further query string parameters will return XML and .json will return JSON. https://api.findmespot.com/spot-main-web/consumer/rest-api/2.0/public/feed/ FEED_ID_HERE /message.xml Last 50 Messages in XML format: https://api.findmespot.com/spot-main-web/consumer/rest-api/2.0/public/feed/ FEED_ID_HERE /message.xml Paging in increments of 50 in XML format (Note: No ?start= results in newest 50 by default): https://api.findmespot.com/spot-main-web/consumer/rest-api/2.0/public/feed/ FEED_ID_HERE /message.xml?start=51 https://api.findmespot.com/spot-main-web/consumer/rest-api/2.0/public/feed/ FEED_ID_HERE /message.xml?start=101 Last 50 Messages in JSON format (both are the same request): https://api.findmespot.com/spot-main-web/consumer/rest-api/2.0/public/feed/ FEED_ID_HERE /message.json Last 50 Messages with password (you should be able to add ?feedPassword to any of the feed requests): https://api.findmespot.com/spot-main-web/consumer/rest-api/2.0/public/feed/ FEED_ID_HERE /message.xml?feedPassword=123456 Start/End Date - 7 days worth of data max restriction applies, regardless of what date you put in there: https://api.findmespot.com/spot-main-web/consumer/rest-api/2.0/public/feed/ FEED_ID_HERE /message.xml?startDate=2012-07-03T00:00:00-0000&endDate=2012-08-02T00:00:00-0000 ( Offset functionality is currently not implemented, using -0000 is the only available offset) Latest - This one will show you the latest message for each device on the shared page, and only the latest message: https://api.findmespot.com/spot-main-web/consumer/rest-api/2.0/public/feed/ FEED_ID_HERE /latest.xml The following message types are available via the current feed: OK TRACK EXTREME-TRACK UNLIMITED-TRACK NEWMOVEMENT HELP HELP-CANCEL CUSTOM POI STOP The XML returned via an api.findmespot.com feed will look like this: 10 03XHH0sPyTiYUsYD2TVJ4q7CzEH89HBhG OneAtATime OneAtATime ACTIVE 0 7 true 10 0 4937065 0-8356068 Spot2 1364909292 HELP-CANCEL -99999.0 -99999.0 SPOT2 Y 2013-04-02T06:28:12-0700 0 The help message has been cancelled 4937064 0-8356068 Spot2 1364909283 HELP 45.42249 -111.68832 SPOT2 Y 2013-04-02T06:28:03-0700 0 This is the default HELP message.
