Adds a Thing Specification Language (TSL) feature to a specified product. You can specify the extended information about the feature.

Limits

  • If a product is published, you must call the CancelReleaseProduct operation to unpublish the product before you call this operation.
  • Before you call the operation, you can use the json-schema library to verify the input parameters in ThingModelJson. For more information, see Data structure of ThingModelJson.
  • You can call this operation to add a maximum of 10 TSL features. TSL features include properties, services, and events.
  • Each Alibaba Cloud account can run a maximum of 5 queries per second (QPS).
    Note RAM users of an Alibaba Cloud account share the quota of the account.

Debugging

OpenAPI Explorer automatically calculates the signature value. For your convenience, we recommend that you call this operation in OpenAPI Explorer. OpenAPI Explorer dynamically generates a sample code of the operation for different SDKs.

In the properties structure of the ThingModelJson parameter, you can use the extendConfig parameter to define the extended information of the TSL model. For more information, see Data structure of ThingModelJson.

FunctionBlockId String No BatteryModule

The identifier of the custom TSL module. Each identifier is unique in a product. The identifier must be 1 to 30 characters in length, and can contain letters, digits, and underscores (_).

This parameter must be used in combination with the FunctionBlockName parameter. If you do not specify this parameter, the system imports the default module.

FunctionBlockName String No Battery_Module

The name of the custom module. The name must be 4 to 30 characters in length, and can contain letters, digits, and underscores (_).

This parameter must be used in combination with the FunctionBlockId parameter. If you do not specify this parameter, the system imports the default module.

In addition to the preceding operation-specific request parameters, you must specify common request parameters when you call this operation. For more information about common request parameters, see Common parameters.
