Equipment

In the Hours of Service platform, Equipment (Vehicles, Trailers) are modeled from Assets. The Equipment API provides simplified interface for Assets API and both may be used to manipulate Assets in the Hours of Service platform. The Equipment API also provides a meta endpoint that executes faster since it has a smaller projection (only returns specific fields) than the normal GET method.

Fields

The Equipment record contains the Equipment’s vehicular information, its name and type, associated DVIR Form, its Terminal, the Visibility Set it belongs to and the ELD properties associated with it.

Tag Data Type Required Description
assetType Character (255) Yes

Indicates the type of this Equipment. Can either be one of the following:

  • Vehicle
  • Trailer
active Boolean Yes

Indicates if the current equipment is active or inactive.

createDate Text Auto

Auto-generated timestamp of the date and time this record was created.
Note: Format is in timestamp and timezone (YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS.sssZ, e.g: 1970-01-01T00:00:00.000Z)

deletedAt Text Auto Indicates the date and time when the Equipment was soft-deleted.
Note: Format is in timestamp and timezone (YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS.sssZ, e.g: 1970-01-01T00:00:00.000Z). This is not returned for Equipment that have not been soft-deleted.
eldConnectionProperties Object No A collection of fields containing information of the device paired with this Equipment.
eldEsn Long (10 digits) No The ELD ESN for the CalAmp device paired with this Equipment.
formId Long No The id of the default DVIR Form associated with the Equipment.
gpsSource Character (255) No Indicates the GPS source used by the Asset when reporting location. Can be any of the following values:

  • MOBILE_DEVICE
  • VBUS_DEVICE
  • EITHER_DEVICE
homeTerminalId Long No The id of the Terminal under which this Equipment belongs to. If not provided in the JSON POST or PUT, automatically assigns the authenticated Driver’s homeTerminalId or the Main Office Terminal if not available
id Auto-incremented Long Auto Unique identifier
lastChangedDate Text Auto Auto-generated timestamp of the last change made to this record
Note: 
Format is in timestamp and timezone (YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS.sssZ, e.g: 1970-01-01T00:00:00.000Z)

sort=-id 
– Sort records by their id field in descending order
sort=name
 – Sort records by their name field in ascending order
sort=-name – Sort records by their name field in descending order
sort=asset-type – Sort records by their assetType in ascending order
sort=-asset-type – Sort records by their assetType field in descending order
QUERY STRING EXAMPLES: Get the Equipment with the specified id: api/v2/equipment /1323163
Get specific Equipment of the current Account with the name of Vehicle1 : ?name=Vehicle1

Delete

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