Delete all components via REST API

Hi everybody,
I want to configure the components of my edge via the REST API. In my case I am using python but it should be the same for all languages.
If I update the system it would be good to first delete all components (except the core cycle and the API itself) and then run the configuration script. As I am already can already delete components by using {“method”: “createComponentConfig”} I only need to get a list of all active components and then delete them.
It is done in the simulator app in a simular way. So the question boils down to: How to get all active components via the REST API?
Thank you in advance!

Hi Nils,

there is a JSON-RPC call getEdgeConfig that gives you the entire configuration:

  "jsonrpc": "2.0",
  "id": "UUID",
  "method": "getEdgeConfig",
  "params": {}

See the docs, that I added a few weeks ago: Configuration :: Open Energy Management System

Perfect! I didn’t know that you added the description. It really helps!
By the way, my work around was to start the simulator app that cleans up everything :slight_smile:

Thank you again for your help Stefan!
