What is it ?

The dashboard is the main management interface for all users collecting data. Using it will enable you to create crops and manage your custom applications, honeycomb servers, and sting documentation.

Manage crops


While creating a crop, you will have to provide some configuration:

  • Define your crop by providing a name, description and optionaly your associated website,
  • Set the crop visibility, if you intend to use our mobile application Bee, your crop should be either Public or Unlisted, enabling anybody will to contribute from the application. A Private crop will only be visible using an SDK instance with a provided access key,
  • Choose a backend server from the official ones, or one of your own instance.
  • Configure the data access policy. You can limit the access to produced data only to authorized api key.

Code it

You can then use the editor to write your crop’s script using every Sting you need. It should be quite easy and user friendly but if you’re in trouble, you can contact us at contact@apisense.com

Publish it

When ready to start collecting data, press the deploy button on the editor. Your crop will be activated and published on the store, waiting for users to subscribe to it.

Manage own applications

When creating a custom application using APISENSE, you will need to provide an access key to your SDK. This key will be generated when adding the application on the dashboard interface.

This will also enable you to use GCM messaging on your application.

Add a custom backend

If you want to keep your data under control, you can deploy your own Honeycomb server.

To use it on a crop, you will have to add the server to your account, also providing the API key to use on the honeycomb configuration.

Document a custom sting

You are using a custom Sting and want to use the editor auto-completion? Add a tern compatible documentation on your settings, and the Sting will be added to your library.
