AutoDesigner API: Flat and Pitched Face Parameters

You can now customize panel tilt, spacing, and orientation depending on whether a roof face is flat or pitched in order to align with your design and installation best practices and maximize irradiance and system production.

Retrieve Asset API

With the Retrieve Asset endpoint, you can retrieve details of an individual asset (e.g., screenshot). You will likely want to use the Retrieve Asset endpoint to look up asset details including URLs on receipt of asset_created webhooks.

New Webhook Events

We added two new webhook events: consumption_profile_changed and asset_created. The consumption profile webhook event fires upon any change to a consumption profile in Aurora. The asset webhook event fires when an asset (e.g., screenshot, DXF file) is created and ready for download in Aurora. With the two new webhooks, you can keep applications in your IT ecosystem in sync with Aurora in real-time.

HTTP Responses by Endpoint

We updated our API Reference to show a full list of HTTP responses that you might receive for each endpoint. With the list of responses, you can build better quality integrations with Aurora by proactively handling error states in your code.

API Tutorials

We published the first API tutorials. With our growing library of tutorials, you can automate the most common solar workflows with the Aurora API in less time and with better quality.

Expanded Scope of Async Webhook Events

Now, webhooks for auto_designer_job_completed, irradiance_analysis_job_completed, performance_simulation_job_completed events fire regardless of how the corresponding job was started (e.g., via Sales Mode, Pro Mode, or API). Previously, only jobs started via the API would fire the webhooks. With the expanded coverage of the performance simulation event, for example, you can keep your CRM in sync with any design changes made from the app, as simulation jobs are a strong proxy for when Aurora designs have been modified.

Fixed Missing Bill of Materials in Design Summary

Fixed a bug that caused the bill of materials not to be populated in some responses to the Retrieve Design Summary API requests.

AutoDesigner API: Filler Row in Energy Mode

The filler row parameter is now available in Energy Mode in addition to MaxFit Mode. AutoDesigner API now has a boolean parameter (“allow_filler_row”) that adds a row of panels with the opposite orientation on either the top or bottom of each roof face if there is space and it improves the result. For example, if the array is vertically (portrait) oriented and the parameter is enabled, AutoDesigner will attempt to place a row of horizontally (landscape) oriented panels to more fully maximize the roof space.

added

Roof Summary API

The new Roof Summary API enables you to programmatically generate roof area and pitch for each roof and individual roof faces of any design. With the API, you can generate roof replacement quotes and close your deals faster.

added

Mock Expert Design Requests

With mock expert design requests, you can test the full workflow for successful and rejected design requests without using credits or waiting for a real design. Available in production and sandbox, the mock workflow will send appropriate webhooks if configured.
