IoT Simulator API Documentation

Introduction

IoT Simulator API helps you to communicate with Bevywise IoT Simulator to Create and Remove Network and Clients, to Create Events and Publish for the added Clients, to Create and Remove Subscription to the added clients, to Create and Remove Response for the added Clients.

This API is implemented using the REST Framework which operates over HTTP. You will be able to integrate the IoT Simulator with your test automation framework using these APIs for a complete regression testing.

Add a New Device

This method will add a new MQTT Device to an already running simulator. The Clean session , will message , will QoS, will retain etc can be specified as a part of this method.
