Delivery Profiles

Ghostwriter is an accelerator specific to power utilities. When enabled, it can be accessed via the menu button ( ) in the top-left corner of the Utilihive Console.

The purpose of a simulation is to verify how your integration flows respond to meter readings and unusual events. To create a delivery destination for the simulated data, select the "Delivery profiles" tab on the left, then select the "Create Delivery Profile" button in the top-right corner. This will display the following form:

The delivery profile form includes fields for setting the API URL, authentication credentials, and delivery format.

Note the following options under Deliveries:

Option Description

Schedule immediately

When checked, starts the message delivery process as soon as the simulation begins instead of waiting for the first hour mark (e.g., 10:00).

Batching period

Can be set to minutes (e.g., m15 for 15 minutes), hours (e.g., h2 for two hours), or a day (e.g., d1).

Delivery URL

The API endpoint of a flow that you have created earlier. See Flow Details for more information.

Authorization header

Credentials to access the delivery URL, either as a username and password or an HTTP authorization header string (e.g., Basic YWxhZGRpbjpvcGVuc2VzYW1l).

Additional delivery endpoints can be added by selecting New at the bottom of the form. If you change your mind and want to remove an added endpoint, select the delete button ( ) next to the delivery name.

Lastly, select Create to finalize the creation process.
