Table of Contents

Apps

Using SDK, you can implement your own tools and features and add them to your Wialon as additional applications.

Only the top user can manage applications. To open the Apps dialog, click on the wrench icon in the top panel.

In the Apps dialog two tabs are situated: Installed and Library. Using these tabs you can look through all the applications available at the moment and add them if necessary.

Installed

A list of added apps can be found on the Installed tab. There are four basic applications available to all users: Chatterbox, Dashboard, iDriveSafe, Track Player. They cannot be edited or deleted (only disabled).

This tab also serves for adding new applications. To do so, choose the upper item 'New' and enter parameters. The parameters to configure an application are the following:

Name
Enter a visible name for your app (at least 4 characters).

Description
Enter any text as a description of your app (optional). It will be shown in a tooltip for your application when it is displayed on the list of applications available to a user.

URL
Type URL address where your application is placed.

Name and URL are mandatory, other parameters are optional.

Advanced URL parameters
Specify advanced URL parameters if necessary (Active SID, Current user, Base URL, Host URL, Language, Authorize hash).

Required services
Choose services (features) which are required for default activation of the application. If the list of features available to a user does not fit this list (or if you leave this section empty), the application will be disabled for this user.

Billing plans
Select billing plans where this application will be mentioned as a service (feature). If no plans selected, your application will be added to all available billing plans.

Compatible languages
Application availability can be limited by chosen interface language. For example, if you tick English here, it will mean that the application will be available only when English is chosen as interface language. If no languages selected, it assumes that the application is compatible with all languages.

After setting all parameters, press Add and when closing the dialog press OK to save the changes.

Other operations with applications:

  • To change an application, select it on the left, edit parameters, and press Apply, and then, when closing the dialog, press OK.
  • To delete an application, select it on the left and press Delete, and then, when closing the dialog, press OK.
  • To create a new application from an existing one, select the base application on the left, edit parameters, and press Apply, and then, when closing the dialog, press OK.
  • To ignore all the changes made, press Cancel.

Added applications become available in billing plans and in account properties on the Features tab. They look like other services, but with 'Apps:' in front of a name of an app. You can enable and disable applications added by you and control their availability to other users.

Library

The list of all standard apps is situated on the Library tab. Adding application from the library is a little bit easier as all the mandatory parameters and also the advanced URL parameters are indicated by default.

Choose an app on the list to see detailed information about it on the right: an app's icon, its name, short description, URL address, and the date of release. If the application has not been added before, the Add button should be active. Pressing this button will switch you automatically to the Installed tab. There you can edit app operational parameters if needed (for example, you can change or translate a description). To complete the procedure press Apply and then OK.
