3DMS Request Deduplication: Design ID in Error

When attempting to create a 3DMS design request for a project with an in-progress 3DMS request, you'll now receive not only an HTTP 422 error message but also the design id of the offending request.

Platform API

Platform API is a newly launched product that includes Client SDK, AutoDesigner API, Irradiance Analysis API, and Performance Simulation API.

added

Performance Simulation API

Performance Simulation API is a part of the Platform API family. The API is a pair of endpoints and a webhook that enable you to kick off a performance simulation for a given design, check on the simulation job status, and get notified when the status changes. You can access annual and hourly energy production for the system produced by the simulation using the Design Summary API.

added

Irradiance Analysis API

Irradiance Analysis API is a part of the Platform API family. The API is a pair of endpoints and a webhook that enable you to kick off panel irradiance analysis for a given design, check on the analysis job status, and get notified when the status changes. You can access shading data (monthly SAP and annual TSRF) on a per-array basis produced by the irradiance analysis using the Design Summary API.

improved

Auto Accept Design Requests

With auto_accept attribute in Create Design Request API endpoint, you can bypass the design acceptance step and move the design directly from "completed" to "accepted" state on design completion.

Financing Selected in Sales Mode

Financing records returned by List Financings endpoint now include "True/False" flag to indicate which financing was selected in Sales Mode.

added

Agreements API

(Private Beta)
If you're using Aurora's contract manager feature, you can access a list of outstanding agreements, status, and a link to completed agreements via Agreements API. Note that the contract manager is currently only available as a part of Sales Mode.

Complete Panel Data via Design Summary API

Previously, Aurora would only populate arrays in the Design Summary with panels connected to an inverter (micro or string). Now, we add all panels, even those unattached to an inverter, along with shading data if available.

Online API Doc

You and your developers need up-to-date, accurate, and easily accessible API documentation to better utilize our APIs. Our new developer page, docs.aurorasolar.com, achieves exactly that by:

AutoDesigner API: Energy Mode

When a 3D site model is completed (manually or via 3DMS), you can use AutoDesigner API to create a system design automatically and be notified when the AutoDesigner task is complete via a webhook. Now, as an alternative to the MaxFit option, you can specify the desired energy production target. This will return a fully strung system using the component(s) specified in the request.
