We are often asked to provide a means of synchronizing “Equipment” or “Device Assets” that exist within an ERP or CMMS with Equipment and Device Objects in SLM. To accomplish this the SLM-API exposes a series of endpoints to allow the transfer of equipment to SLM and provide a reference back to the unique object keys in SLM that have been generated for the data transferred. These unique object keys can then be associated in the ERP, so that any future update to that object or data associated with that object can now reference the same object in SLM for updates or other associated data transfers like equipment or device events.
