Assets

Assets refers to the collection of Vehicles and Trailers owned by an Account. An Asset is paired with a given ELD device capable of periodically reporting back its position and possibly other characteristics of the vehicle. Assets can be associated with Driver Histories, Asset Statuses, etc. containing information that the device and the HOS application has reported back to the Hours of Service servers.

Delete

API PATH: /api/v2/assets/<id>
METHOD: DELETE
DESCRIPTION: Supports soft delete. Requires the PERM_EDIT_EQUIPMENT permission for users and drivers. Drivers must also be allowed to delete equipment, based on the “hos.driver.equipment.delete” account property and their “HOS_DELETE_EQUIPMENT” user preference, both must be set to true

Delete for the Assets API is implemented using a soft-delete. This prevents SQL’s Cascade Delete from deleting any Driving records associated with a deleted Asset. Eventually, following the motor carrier’s data retention policy, the soft-delete will become a hard-delete.

Vehicle’s eldConnectionProperties

The properties prefixed with “eld” (previously the “fields” property) are the eldConnectionProperties of an Asset. These fields contain the configuration details needed for setting up the devices that the Hours of Service system supports. The details on how to use the fields with regards to the devices are explained fully in the Installation Guides.

API error calls

ERROR MESSAGE POSSIBLE CAUSES
Access Denied. POST, PUT and DELETE methods require a user role of ASSETADMIN or higher
An asset with the given id was not found PUT error because asset id does not exist
Cannot modify a deleted entity. PUT error because a soft-deleted record cannot be updated.
Entity is already deleted. DELETE error because a soft-deleted record cannot be deleted again.
