Local Info Report

Local Info Report is currently available as a beta release. Functionality may be subject to change.

Local Info Report is a feature that allows you to retrieve device information directly from a device by using a Java applet that is embedded into plan01s, plan01s - LDV, plan-NA1, and plan-US SIMs. Unlike the basic network-provided SIM details that are available on the User Console or through the Soracom API or Soracom CLI, the Local Info Report is able to detailed information about the SIM and device status, such as: ICCID, IMSI, MSISDN, IMEI, Location, and Battery level (if supported by your device).

Programmatic Usage

You can also use the Soracom API, Soracom CLI, and Metadata Service to trigger a Local Info Report.

Soracom API

To access the Soracom API, first use the auth API to obtain an API Key and Token. Refer to the API Reference Guide for instructions on how to use the API Key and Token in API requests.

Then, use the reportLocalInfo API to request a Local Info Report from an Air SIM:

curl -X POST \
>  -H 'X-Soracom-API-Key: <MY-API-KEY>' \
>  -H 'X-Soracom-Token: <MY-TOKEN>' \
>  https://g.api.soracom.io/v1/subscribers/<IMSI>/report_local_info

If the Local Info Report request is successful, you can then retrieve the report using the getSubscriber API:

curl -X GET \
>  -H 'X-Soracom-API-Key: <MY-API-KEY>' \
>  -H 'X-Soracom-Token: <MY-TOKEN>' \
>  https://g.api.soracom.io/v1/subscribers/<IMSI>

The report will be included in the response as a localInfo attribute.

Soracom CLI

To use the Soracom CLI, you must first configure it to authenticate with your account information, authorization key, or SAM user credentials.

Then, run the following command to request a Local Info Report from an Air SIM:

soracom subscribers report-local-info --imsi <IMSI> --coverage-type g

If the Local Info Report request is successful, you can then retrieve the report using this command:

soracom subscribers get --imsi <IMSI> --coverage-type g
