A data point is a JSON document that represents a piece of data and conforms to the data-point schema. The header of a data point conforms to the header schema, and the body can conform to any schema you like. The header is designed to contain operational metadata, such as identifiers and provenance, whereas the body contains the data being acquired or computed. The data point API is a simple RESTful API that supports the creation, retrieval, and deletion of data points. The API authorizes access using OAuth 2.0. This implementation uses two components that reflect the OAuth 2.0 specification. A resource server manages data point resources and implements the data point API. The resource server authorizes requests using OAuth 2.0 access tokens. An authorization server manages the granting of access tokens. VIEW ON GITHUB NOW!
