DataWedge APIs operate primarily through Android intents - specific commands that can be used by other applications to control data capture without the need to directly access the DataWedge UI.
DataWedge APIs are categorized into 4 types:
Clone Profile - Create a copy of an existing DataWedge Profile including all settings.
Create Profile - Create a new Profile without setting configurations.
Delete Profile - Delete an existing Profile.
Import Config - Import a Profile and/or Config file, which can contain multiple Profiles.
Rename Profile - Rename an existing Profile.
Restore Config - Reset all user-configured settings and restore DataWedge to the factory-default settings.
Set Config - Create, update or replace a Profile and its settings.
Set Disabled App List - Add, remove or update an app/activity from the list which prevents the use of DataWedge.
Set Ignore Disabled Profiles - Prevent switching to a Profile that is disabled, including Profile0.
Register/Unregister for Notifications enables apps to register or unregister to receive notifications of status changes related to:
Enumerate Scanners - Generate an index of scanners available on the device.
