Sample JSON requests

The following requests apply to a plant hierarchy where the highest level plant group type is the plant, for example:

Create a plant group at the highest intermediate level under the plant


"Name": "Area 1",

"Description": "Plant Group 1"

"ParentId": ""


Create an intermediate-level plant group


"Name": "PG2",

"Description": "Plant Group 2"

"ParentId": "3FA2231501B446588C05F69EA3DCC710"


Create a plant group of type 'Unit' at any level


"Name": "PG3",

"Description": "Unit 1"

"ParentId": "F09D008AD08C47E3A13401368F4079B5"

"UnitCode": "Unit 1"


  • Plant group names at each level must be unique.

  • When creating a plant group of type 'Unit', the 'UnitCode' parameter is mandatory, regardless of the unit's level in the hierarchy.

  • When creating a plant group of type 'Site', an optional string parameter, 'Address' may be added.

  • The plant group type of the new plant group is determined according to the plant hierarchy of the plant and the plant group's parent ID; for example, if the plant hierarchy is Plant-Area-Unit:

    • A new plant group created with a blank parent ID will be of plant group type = Area.

    • A new plant group created with a parent ID corresponding to an Area will be of plant group type = Unit.
