Historian APIs

Historian is a high performance data archiving system designed to collect, store, and retrieve time-based information at extremely high speed efficiently. The Historian environment provides a set of REST APIs to query data from the archives.

This document provides links for setting up your development environment, as well as information for getting started with the Historian services and their associated APIs.

Important: Starting Historian 8.0, using a port number in request URL is not supported. Hence, do not include the port number :8443 while working with REST APIs.

Also, the default admin client name is changed from admin to hostname.admin

Example:
curl -u admin:adminsecret https://<nodename>:8443/uaa/oauth/token -d
      'grant_type=client_credentials'
should be replaced with
curl -u hostname.admin:adminsecret https://<nodename>/uaa/oauth/token -d
      'grant_type=client_credentials'
