Do DriverIds repeat from one organization to another or are they unique across all Samsara system?

This is a very simple case. We are doing an integration with Samsara for several organizations and we'd like to know if the DriverId you work with is unique across all Samsara Thanks in advance.

Error when attempting to authorize access from OAuth2 API

Hi, I followed the guide located here: https://developers.samsara.com/docs/oauth-20 to set up an OAuth2 API. When attempting to login using the authorization code workflow, I get the error "Error: not authorized to create custom role". A colleague of mine who has full admin access doesn't get this error. What should be done to resolve this? My account has developer access, which should be having READ access on all endpoints.

ECM troubleshooting/commands via a Samsara ELD module

I have a Samsara ELD customer requesting to connect to the ECM remotely to troubleshoot issues on the road without having to connect from a laptop (which they do with a NEXIQ Box currently). In particular, they want to clear codes, reflash ecms,or regening the engines. Is this possible with Samsara or any other 3rd party products?

API extracts after Clock change (Sprng and Fall)

If I am extracting data from various APIs for a date in EST on a date in DST, what should my parameters look like ? -5 or -4? For instance, time changed on 3/12 2 AM to 3 AM. At 6 am, we extracted data for 3/09.

Is there an update when trailer reefer alarms clear?

Referring to this endpoint: https://developers.samsara.com/reference/gettrailerstatssnapshot `reeferAlarms` in response body: alarm severity. Is this "1" by default? Will this update back to "1" once a "2 check" or "3 severe" alarm is cleared? Or is there some other way to know that an alarm is cleared?

Does samsara include an odometer offset?

Does Samsara offer an API attribute that gives us the odometer (GPS odometer) and a true odometer (Odometer + any odometer offsets due to equipment change/repair)? In some cases, it is called the odometer offset. Thanks,

The safety event feed doesn't supply enough detail or information for pulling the full event detail

When using the event feed, we only get a short blurb of the change made. We don't get the full event data from the feed so we can keep a 100% accurate internal database of our camera events. We tried using the "List all safety events" end point but it doesn't use the same timestamps as the feed. When adjusting them by 1 minute we get 0 results for something that shows up on the feed. This would be so much cleaner if we could use the unique ID for the "List all safety events" end point rather than a timestamp range. That way we could get a feed item, and then query the unique event ID to grab the current details.

We would love to have an endpoint for the Speeding event feed.

I could post a picture, but there is a section where we can drill down on a driver and see their speeding events against posted speed limits. There is an event table and a way to retrieve all of these as they happen would be very beneficial. We can grab the current speed of a vehicle, but the speeding events are not available anywhere in the safety event feeds.
