Request parameters

Parameter Type Required Example Description
Action String Yes BatchGetDeviceState

The operation that you want to perform. Set the value to BatchGetDeviceState.

DeviceName.N RepeatList No light

The DeviceNames of the devices.

Note If you specify this parameter, you must also specify the ProductKey parameter.
IotInstanceId String No iot_instc_pu****_c*-v64********

The ID of the instance. You can view the instance ID on the Overview page in the IoT Platform console.

  • If your instance has an ID, you must configure this parameter. If you do not set this parameter, the call fails.
  • If your instance has no Overview page or ID, you do not need to set this parameter.

For more information, see Overview.

ProductKey String No a1BwAGV****

The ProductKey of the product to which the devices belong.

Note If you specify this parameter, you must also specify the DeviceName parameter.
IotId.N RepeatList No Q7uOhVRdZRRlDnTLv****00100

Note If you specify this parameter, you do not need to specify ProductKey or DeviceName. The IotId parameter specifies a globally unique identifier (GUID) of the device, which corresponds to a combination of ProductKey and DeviceName. If you specify both IotId and the combination of ProductKey and DeviceName, IotId takes precedence.

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