Resource management

The SAS Portal API allows you to create, view, update, or delete the following resources within your CBRS network:

The ability for each user to manage a resource depends on the user role assigned to the resource or parent resource. Permissions are inherited from the parent resource.

User IDs

A user ID uniquely identifies the operator of a CBSD. The SAS uses user IDs to assign a device to a Customer. Every SAS customer has to provide at least one user ID during Customer account setup. You can add additional user IDs later.


The SAS Portal API enables multi-step registration of CBSDs. For devices that need to be installed by a Certified Professional Installer (CPI), you have two options to initiate the multi-step registration process:

  • Option 1: Initiate the process with a CPI account. For this option, the user must be authenticated with the role_cpi role. First, the user is verified with the ValidateInstaller() method, and then they use the SignDevice() method to send the CPI-validated configuration to the SAS.

  • Option 2: Initiate the process with any account. For this option, any user can use the CreateSigned() method to create an inactive device configuration that's ready for the CBSD to use. This method uses device parameters that are encoded with a CPI's private key.

Regardless of which option you use, this process creates an inactive configuration for the device in the SAS. Then, the CBSD sends a registration request to the SAS. If it’s successful, the device status changes to "REGISTERED."

For CBSDs that don’t need CPI validation, use the CreateDevice() method.

For single-step registration with CPI-encoded data, use the SAS-CBSD API defined by WInnForum.
