Making an API request for this Dataset

Example Request to the Sandbox Server

http://sbx-api.mydex.org/api/pds/transaction/UID.json
  ?key=KEY
  &api_key=API_KEY
  &con_id=CON_ID
  &source_type=connection
  &dataset=ds_utility_meter_readings
  &instance=N

Replace the following with your own details: UID KEY, API_KEY, CON_ID and instance N.

Replace sbx-api with api when making a connection to a real member on the production server (must be authenticated).

To return the data in XML, change UID.json to UID.xml.
