API Release Notes - February 3rd 2017

This release contained the following new API and enhancements:

  • Lifetime Service Summary API
  • Operation Lifetime Summary API
  • Key Operation Lifetime Summary API
  • Enhancement to Wiring Diagrams API

Lifetime Service Summary, Operation Lifetime Summary and Key Operation Lifetime Summary  APIs are here!!!!

As mentioned in our October release, these three new APIs are an evolution of the Common Service Operations API, where we have taken the vast Service Guide information we have to provide intuitive API responses to provide fast and effective service information to the user.

Lifetime Service Summary API

The first in our trio of Lifetime Service APIs provides you with all the service intervals and their corresponding operations for a given Vehicle (MID). This API has two methods associated with it, the first method returns a list of service schedules for the relative variants of a given MID.

The second method call will allow you to find the most suitable service interval and its operations based on the following variables: MID, Service Schedule ID, Service Miles or km, Service Months. The response is then followed by the other intervals available,  as well as the Operation IDs and the intervals they are linked to.

The other optional variables in the second call are the Operation Type ID (Check, Calibrate, replace etc - See documentation for Operation Type IDs), and part information.

Operation Lifetime Summary API

This API in the Service Summary series provides  the user the ability to see the intervals in which a particular operation is required, greatly improving the search capability for those important operations such as timing belt changes. This API has two call methods. The first method call, like with the Lifetime Service Summary API, returns a list of service schedules for the relative variants of a given MID.

The second method call will then provide you with the operational information followed by the Service intervals and respective interval details that the operation is included in. As with the Lifetime Service Summary API, the variables are the same, with the inclusion of Operation ID.

Key Operation Lifetime Summary API

Similar to Operation Lifetime Summary but allowing for service interval information for  multiple Operation IDs to be displayed. There are two method call for this API. The first method call like the previous two APIs, returns the list of service schedules for the relative variants of a given MID.

The second call will provide you with the operational information for the selected operation IDs, followed by the service intervals for those operation IDs. The operation IDs and their associated Service IDs are then displayed at the bottom of the response.  In addition to the MID, Service Schedule ID, Service miles / km, service months and Operation Type ID, this call method allows for up to 20 operation IDs to be entered.

Enhancement to Wiring Diagram API

As part of the continual development to the content rich responses of the Wiring Diagrams API, we have now included image references for the earth point locations along with the annotations for the specific images.
