The first thing you need to do to use the API-Widget is to create credentials so that your other systems can connect to the API and send in information.

This is done in under the Apps title in Connectel Portal.

So first we click portal on the  landing page

Then we go to "Apps" in the left menu.

And then you press Add App to add new credentials

You will see this information on the left where you can choose the owner of the new "App"

It's crucial that you note down the Secret as this will not be shown again and can't be recovered if you loose it.

Then you just press Save and your new credentials will be live and ready for use.


To show information and statistics from other systems inside Insights and Skyview you use the API-widget.

To set up an API-widget in Insights or Skyview you need to press the Add Widgets button



Then you give the widget a name, and also a Type. The type have to be Table or Text if you are using the API-widget and then you turn on the API-widget switch so that it's green and then press save.

Now we will see this edit menu for the API-widget where we can customize the metrics and add new metrics. 

Note that there is only 2 "metrics" that you can choose, "Custome Number" and "Customer String"

Custom Number is used to display numbers

Custom String is used to display text

When you have added either Number or String you can edit that widget and give it your own name if you want to by pressing the pen icon on the metric.

The information shown in the white box is information you have to give to the people responsible for sending data to the widget.

This tells them how to send data in to this widget, they will also need the client ID and Secret from the first step in this article.

There is also some API-documentation on this link SwaggerHub - API Widget Documentation about how to authenticate against the API and how it works that they will need.
