to programmatically retrieve and change your device information.
This REST API can then be used in a variety of ways to control your
IoT implementation. In our case, we used it to define the devices that
interact with Artik, eg. for this Youtube video .
One of the ways is through the Node-RED graphical programming
environment. This small setup
allows us to retrieve the device information for our purposes with a
couple of clicks. From an initial state as shown in the Node-RED dashboard
by entering the single Bearer Token of the Artik API, it retrieves the
UserID, registered Device Types and Devices with a couple of clicks on
the trigger nodes.
By saving this information into a file, we can define those devices
as simulated sensors in MIMIC MQTT Simulator
