Rename Trailer


Rename a trailer given the asset identifier of the existing trailer and the asset identifier of the trailer to be renamed.  This web service also accepts a boolean value indicating whether to migrate historical data to the new SCAC/trailer identifier.

Untethered units that currently have an owned SCAC, must be renamed with an existing, owned SCAC.  Likewise, if the untethered trailer is foreign, it must be renamed with an existing foreign SCAC.  Tethered units on the other hand, are allowed to be changed from a foreign SCAC to an owned SCAC (and vice versa).

void renameTrailer(AssetIdentifier trailer, AssetIdentifier newTrailer, boolean bHistory) throws WSException

  • *trailer: The current AssetIdentifier of the trailer to be renamed.
  • *newTrailer: The AssetIdentifier that defines the new trailer identity.
  • bHistory: A boolean indicating whether to migrate the event and position history records for this trailer to the new trailer identifier. As of November 2014, this parameter will be ignored. The historical records will automatically be transferred to the new trailer identifier.
