Accepting data from external applications

A REST API endpoint can be used to write data into SERAM.

You can configure the data source for each specific indicator on a structure node; the default is the SERAM UI. Only the configured data source will be allowed to modify the data. Therefore, after changing the source to an application, this indicator will be read-only in the SERAM UI - even for administrators (but you can, of course, at any time revert the source to the SERAM UI and then modify the data). This prevents race conditions when entering data, there is always only one source for a specific data point.

When applications write data, they are excempt from the data status workflow imposed otherwise. Therefore, the external system can directly write a "verified" value and SERAM will store and use this value as-is.
