Click the Add button on the top right

Name your environment to anything you like. For this example, naming it 'development' would be appropriate. Click on Bulk Edit and paste the environment template below

Click Update, your environment should now be configured

Enter in the appropriate values. plantId will be the number for the plant, and serialNum is the Serial Number of the inverter you want to extract data from. Finally, enter in your user credentials to login to the API. Your user account will determine what kind of data you can extract.
