A typical workflow involving the use of the Fleet Connectivity Extension API consists of the following steps:
- The dispatcher sends a POST request with the relevant information about a delivery job. The response from the Fleet Connectivity Extension API service specifies the job ID (
job_id) of the job. For an example and more details, see Sending a Job to an Asset.
- The dispatcher requests an update on the location and the remaining time till arrival/delivery for each mobile asset that has accepted a delivery job. For an example and more details, see Requesting Updates from the Assets.
- After receiving and processing each update, the dispatcher deletes the information from the Fleet Connectivity Extension API service to be ready for the next update. For an example and more details, see Deleting Events.
