End-user data

Unique & mandatory data

The following minimum information need to always be specified and be unique across the NET2GRID INSIGHT Platform in order to create an account:

  • labelpartner (will be associated with all the end-user's installations if not overwritten in the installation definition. labelpartner is set & configured on Platform level and applies to account and installation level.)
  • Customer_info object:
    • Email address (unique per account)
    • External account id (unique account identifier)
    • contant_info object:
      • firstname
      • lastname
  • Installation_info object:
    • External installation id (unique installation identifier)

Data that unlocks functionality

  • postal_code & country_code, if available, automatically enable:
    • the NET2GRID Weather API (which is utilized to enrich the accuracy of the space heating disaggregation algorithms of households),
    • as well as the Solar production estimation.
  • street_no & house_no (and optionally the suffix) are required for Customers & end-users utilizing the EDSN datahub integration.
  • service_type is an important field on installation level provisioning that specifies the nature of the EnergyAI & services (availability of specific functionalities & features). If not set, labelpartner configuration & the default service type will be used.


If the service type is BR-LR-* or BR-HR-* (meaning that the data is loaded in batches via a datahub integration or via file exchange), then external_meter_id should always be provided. If it has not been provided, then a relevant error, along with a message will be thrown by the Account Management API.

Other data

  • meter_input_method: The input type of the data to the NET2GRID Insight Platform which may have one of the 2 following values:
    • DEVICE: When hardware is used to report data.
    • IMPORT: When file imports, a datahub integration or anything else is in place where NET2GRID Insight Platform gets data from, in batches.
  • create_verified_user:
    • It is recommended that this flag is set to false in order for an end-user to verify their e-mail later on during the registration process via the CE-API.
    • By setting this flag to true then the e-mail verification process can be skipped; this is the recommended approach only for e-mails that have already been verified to the customers' CRM systems.

SSO Flow prerequisite

In order to enable the Introspection SSO flow through the CE-API, the external_authentication_provider_id, which is on account level, should be provided during the provisioning phase.
