Title
Using Auto Configure for REST API
Content
You can use the <a href="http://nightscout.github.io/pages/configure/">auto configure tool</a> to sync your upload settings in your uploader app. This is one way to easily set up REST API and ensure you get the proper syntax for the string. <ul> <li style="padding-bottom: 10px;">To use the auto configure tool, go to: <a href="http://nightscout.github.io/pages/configure/">http://nightscout.github.io/pages/configure/</a>.</li> <li style="padding-bottom: 10px;">Enter your 12-character (minimum) API_SECRET value in the first box.</li> <li style="padding-bottom: 10px;">Enter your Nightscout url in the second box, using this format: <strong>https://<span style="color: red;">YOURSITENAME</span>.azurewebsites.net/api/v1</strong></p> <a href="http://nightscout.github.io/pages/configure/"><img src="http://www.nightscout.info/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/autoconfigure.png" alt="autoconfigure" width="394" height="409" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-2689" style="padding-top: 10px; padding-bottom: 10px;" /></a> </li> <li style="padding-bottom: 10px;">Once a 12-character minimum API_SECRET and a base url are both entered, the boxes will turn green. <a href="http://www.nightscout.info/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/rest-auto-green.png"><img src="http://www.nightscout.info/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/rest-auto-green.png" alt="rest-auto-green" width="665" height="227" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-2701" style="padding-top: 10px; padding-bottom: 10px;" /></a> </li> <li style="padding-bottom: 10px;"><p>In your uploader app, choose the "auto configure" option and use your uploader phone's camera to scan the QR code.</p></li> </ul>
