Target audience for this API are Charge Point Operators (CPOs). It may be used to automate the management of the CPOs infrastructure. As a RESTful API it exposes various resources (like charging stations, connectors, etc.) that allow the CPO to discover and manipulate the assets they need to operate.

The API itself uses the best practices described in jsonapi.org. It follows the best practices there, as far as possible.

The API is versioned via the url. Currently there is only version v1 which will be extended as the time grows. The clients using this API should expect that new fields, will be added to the endpoint. If you are consuming the API, make sure that your libraries can handle new fields and won’t break if added.
