TL;DR Trying to bring together HTTP API and Matlab
Hi everyone,
I'm writing here as I feel like I'm in over my head right now ahah
I have a piece of equipment that comes with a Web UI and a HTTP API. I also have documentation for this API. That said, I have 0 knowledge of HTTP. Therefore, I am trying to understand how to use Matlab's native support for HTTP requests to change a few settings of the equipment using hte API.
The main setting I am trying to change is the following:
> TX: curl -v -X POST http://IP_ADDRESS/api/$/status/operationMode/set -d '{"mode": "RESET"}'
Essentially switching it from "Reset" mode to "Measure" mode.
It seems feasible, and probably trivial to someone who's done this before, but I'm really feeling overwhelmed with all the info (lack of info) and documentation about this sort of stuff. I've looked at some exmaples on the Matlab documentation, but I'm still lost.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
