Assign Monitoring Plan


The assignTrailerMonitoringPlan web service provides the means to assign a monitoring plan to a trailer and, optionally, to set the trailer's notification group. Trailers are identified by their SCAC and Trailer ID. When specifying a monitoring plan, the plan must be active and it must be compatible with the trailer. A trailer must be equipped with the appropriate sensors in order to be compatible with a given monitoring plan.
