Equipment to be Installed
As is clear from the Data structure above, the Mobsted platform provides the front end, with UI design and logic, with most of the data coming in from external APIs of R-Telecom.
Here is a sample, of how data is pulled into UI from the external APIs, using Mobsted's built in Operations capabilities:
How Were Operations Setup
In the app maker a Text component is used to display external data. It has actual text to display as "Equipment -" and "USD." The blank in between is filled using #hashtags# data reference and data itself comes from an API Operation called "GetClientInfoOperation" marked blue ↑.
It was decided to use a single API call to fill in all details in this UI section.

Then all other positions such as "Connection" and "Monthly "Rate are filled using other parts of the same JSON array from the single API call made.
The app displays new time slots available for a customer to choose from using another API Operation, called
All was done using basic functionality. We created an API provider called DomRU and added 4 different operations. As an example the "GetClientInfoOperation" from the above section is shown.
