Guide Concept

This project will introduce you to the REST API utilized by the ThingWorx platform.

Following the steps in this guide, you will be able to connect to the ThingWorx platform and make REST calls to call Services, update Properties, and perform a number of actions for your IoT applications.

We will teach you how to use the ThingWorx REST API to create a more robust application. With the REST API you can leverage the full power of the ThingWorx Foundation server with simple HTTP requests. The REST API can easily be explored using a command line tool such as curl, a browser plugin like Postman, or any preferred programming language.
