Exploring basic rules

Let's try exploring the /assets endpoint:

.. literalinclude:: tutorial/asset-listing.http
   :language: javascript

Just invoking it reveals empty set.

Now let's attempt creating some asset:

.. literalinclude:: tutorial/asset-post-attempt.http
   :language: javascript

Error states that the only accepted Content-Type is application/json.

Let's satisfy the Content-type requirement:

.. literalinclude:: tutorial/asset-post-attempt-json.http
   :language: javascript

Error states that no data has been found in JSON body.

.. index:: Asset

Creating asset

Let's create asset with the minimal (only required) data set:

.. literalinclude:: tutorial/asset-post-2pc.http
   :language: javascript

.. literalinclude:: tutorial/asset-patch-2pc.http
   :language: javascript

Success! Now we can see that new object was created. Response code is 201 and Location response header reports the location of the created object. The body of response reveals the information about the created asset: its internal id (that matches the Location segment), its official assetID and dateModified datestamp stating the moment in time when asset was last modified. Pay attention to the assetType. Note that asset is created with pending status.

Let's access the URL of the created object (the Location header of the response):

.. literalinclude:: tutorial/blank-asset-view.http
   :language: javascript

We can see the same response we got after creating asset.

Let's see what listing of assets reveals us:

.. literalinclude:: tutorial/initial-asset-listing.http
   :language: javascript

We do see the internal id of a asset (that can be used to construct full URL by prepending and its dateModified datestamp.

The previous asset contained only required fields. Let's try creating asset with more data (asset has status created):

.. literalinclude:: tutorial/create-second-asset.http
   :language: javascript

And again we have 201 Created response code, Location header and body with extra id, assetID, and dateModified properties.

Let's check what asset registry contains:

.. literalinclude:: tutorial/listing-with-some-assets.http
   :language: javascript

And indeed we have 2 assets now.

Modifying Asset

Let's update asset description:

.. literalinclude:: tutorial/patch-asset.http
   :language: javascript

We see the added properies have merged with existing asset data. Additionally, the dateModified property was updated to reflect the last modification datestamp.

Checking the listing again reflects the new modification date:

.. literalinclude:: tutorial/asset-listing-after-patch.http
   :language: javascript

Deleting Asset

Let's delete asset:

.. literalinclude:: tutorial/delete-asset.http
   :language: javascript

Integration with lots

.. literalinclude:: tutorial/attached-to-lot-asset-view.http
   :language: javascript

.. literalinclude:: tutorial/detached-from-lot-asset-view.http
   :language: javascript

.. literalinclude:: tutorial/complete-asset-view.http
      :language: javascript
