POST /api/Commands/SendCommand


The SendCommand endpoint can be used to send a command to a Device that activates operations on the Device. These commands contain free text that represents the method to be executed on the Device.

The Axonize Device SDK hubClient.receive on the Device listens for the arrival of this command, and then executes this free text in order to activate the relevant operation on the Device.

Alternatively, instead of using the hubClient.receive on the Device that listens, Axonize can use its command gateway to send commands to Devices using various IoT protocols that are not supported by the Axonize Device SDK that is installed on the device.

See the following for request and response details:
