DescribeTimeSeries

Retrieves information about a time series (data stream).

To identify a time series, do one of the following:

  • If the time series isn't associated with an asset property, specify the alias of the time series.

  • If the time series is associated with an asset property, specify one of the following:

    • The alias of the time series.

    • The assetId and propertyId that identifies the asset property.

Request Syntax

GET /timeseries/describe/?alias=alias&assetId=assetId&propertyId=propertyId HTTP/1.1

URI Request Parameters

The request uses the following URI parameters.

alias

The alias that identifies the time series.

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1.

Pattern: [^\u0000-\u001F\u007F]+

assetId

The ID of the asset in which the asset property was created.

Length Constraints: Fixed length of 36.

Pattern: ^[0-9a-f]{8}-[0-9a-f]{4}-[0-9a-f]{4}-[0-9a-f]{4}-[0-9a-f]{12}$

propertyId

The ID of the asset property.

HTTP/1.1 200 Content-type: application/json { "alias": "string", "assetId": "string", "dataType": "string", "dataTypeSpec": "string", "propertyId": "string", "timeSeriesCreationDate": number, "timeSeriesId": "string", "timeSeriesLastUpdateDate": number }

Response Elements

If the action is successful, the service sends back an HTTP 200 response.

The following data is returned in JSON format by the service.

alias

The alias that identifies the time series.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1.

Pattern: [^\u0000-\u001F\u007F]+

assetId

The ID of the asset in which the asset property was created.

Type: String

Pattern: ^[0-9a-f]{8}-[0-9a-f]{4}-[0-9a-f]{4}-[0-9a-f]{4}-[0-9a-f]{12}$

dataType

The data type of the time series.

If you specify STRUCT, you must also specify dataTypeSpec to identify the type of the structure for this time series.

Type: String

Valid Values: STRING | INTEGER | DOUBLE | BOOLEAN | STRUCT

dataTypeSpec

The data type of the structure for this time series. This parameter is required for time series that have the STRUCT data type.

The options for this parameter depend on the type of the composite model in which you created the asset property that is associated with your time series. Use AWS/ALARM_STATE for alarm state in alarm composite models.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 256.

Pattern: [^\u0000-\u001F\u007F]+

propertyId

The ID of the asset property.

Type: String

Pattern: ^[0-9a-f]{8}-[0-9a-f]{4}-[0-9a-f]{4}-[0-9a-f]{4}-[0-9a-f]{12}$

timeSeriesCreationDate

The date that the time series was created, in Unix epoch time.

Type: Timestamp

timeSeriesId

The ID of the time series.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 36. Maximum length of 73.

timeSeriesLastUpdateDate

The date that the time series was last updated, in Unix epoch time.

Type: Timestamp
