At Samsara, we're always delivering new features. Keep up-to-date with all the latest developer features, improvements, and bug fixes here.

June 2019

UPDATED
  • All sensor endpoints now include timestamps for the time that the value was read.

  • Now, you can find the automatic associations between vehicles and asset gateways within the API. You can find the current association on the assets endpoint and any historical associations on the trips endpoint.

May 2019

UPDATED

  • We've corrected a developer experience issue in the document submission alert webhook. Previously we returned the driverCreatedAtMs field, but now we will return a driverId_driverCreatedAtMs field so that the webhook field matches the API-consumable field.

NEW

UPDATED

  • The fleet list endpoint now returns a list of tags that each vehicle is associated with.

April 2019

UPDATED
  • The routes API now includes a documents array that shows all documents that are submitted for a given route.

  • The vehicles stats endpoint now returns information on external IDs.

NEW
  • We've released a new API to fetch individual documents submitted by a given driver.

  • We've released a new set of APIs for user management within Samsara. Create, update, and delete users in your Samsara organization. This can be integrated with your identity provider platforms to manage account provisioning and permissions.

  • We've released a new set of APIs around driver messaging. Now you can send and retrieve messages to a driver or set of drivers using the new messages API.

March 2019

NEW UPDATED
  • The fleet locations endpoint now returns a list of all active routes that the vehicle is traveling on.

  • The routing APIs now include odometer_start_meters and odometer_end_meters to give you more visibility into distance traveled by a given vehicle.

  • The trips API now includes information about co-driving passengers during a given driving segment.

NEW
  • We've released a new endpoint to manage driver accounts via API. Now you can programmatically update driver information, such as driver password, in order to keep your driver records up-to-date.

February 2019

MAJOR API VERSION
  • We've released a new version of the API on 2019-02-22: If there is no value for a field in the Drivers object, then the Driver object will not show the given field. Previously, this field would be visible with a null value. You can upgrade your API token on your admin dashboard to receive this change.

UPDATED
  • The fleet locations endpoint now returns information about the vehicle odometer.

  • Routes can now be assigned to trailers, alongside vehicles and drivers.

January 2019

NEW
  • You can now assign custom external identifiers for drivers and vehicles within Samsara. External IDs are customer-specified key-value pairs that allow you to grab Samsara objects.

  • We have released pagination support for the APIs that provide multiple resources. This is now available on the /fleet/list endpoint, and we will continue to add pagination support to all our long-resourced endpoints.

  • Manage your address book using the new addresses APIs.

December 2018

MAJOR UPDATE
  • With webhooks, developers can now receive and build upon alert notifications via a webhook event. This is particularly useful for building integrations that rely on alerts for special events, like a vehicle arriving at a given location, or temperature exceeding a specified set temperature. For more information on how to create and configure your webhook, check out the documentation here.
