Method parameters

type: object

itemsResource querydefault = {}Query which items to select, and configure inclusion or exclusion of meta-data in the response. By default, no meta-data is included.
dataData querydefault = {}Configure which data to include in the response.

Response result

type: object


itemsmap of Item ID => Item select viewWhen items.included is true.Selected Items meta-data.
dataData Framewhen data.included is true,time series data.

Rates and limits


  • The API is rate-limited to 10 request/sec.

Items query:

  • items.limit can maximum be:

    • 50 if data.include == true.
    • 1000 otherwise.

Data query:

  • Time window data.notBefore -> data.before can maximum be:
    • 40 days when data.rollup < "PT1M" or data.rollup == null.
    • 400 days when data.rollup >= "PT1M" or data.rollup == "window".

Schema references

Data frame

Data frame holds data for one or more time-series.

type: object


timesarray of TimestampYesArray of timestamps to insert.
seriesmap of Input ID => array of (number or null)YesArray of data points to insert by Input ID. The length of each array must match that of the times array. To omit a value for a given timestamp in times, use the value null.

The exact format of the keys in the "series" property depend on your query:

  • If data.rollup is configured, the keys will be "<item id>_(sum|min|max|avg|count)".
  • If data.rollup is not configured, the keys will be "<item id>".
