We've released two new API endpoints for IFTA reports!
You can now preview our designs for a set of
/gateways APIs that allow you to list, activate, and deactivate Samsara gateways programmatically. This would allow you to automate gateway installation and management. Check out the preview design, and use the feedback form to send in feedback and express interest in beta-testing.
