The following code will export AEMP (Association of Equipment Management Professionals) data through our API. The code uses basic HTTP authentication and will return an XML document that follows AEMP 1.2 specification. 

This is intended for a technical audience—ask your developer for assistance.

Sample Code

import urllib.request

import base64

from urllib.error import HTTPError

# Credentials from a machinelink account

username = ''

password = ''

url = 'https://aemp.machinelink.com/fleet'

req = urllib.request.Request(url)

credentials = '{}:{}'.format(username, password)

encoded_credentials = base64.b64encode(credentials.encode())

req.add_header('Authorization', 'Basic {}'.format(encoded_credentials.decode()))

try:

   response = urllib.request.urlopen(req)

   print(response.read().decode())

except HTTPError as e:

   print(e.read())
